Hi, tbolt and charge kernel dev here. butcher1966 asked me if i can whip up a voodoo kernel for mesmerize gingerbread, and bdemartino volunteered to test for me, so i said why not.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own a mesmerize (or any i500), which means I can't do my own testing, so be sure to back up before you flash. (and let me know if things are not working)

This is not my usual leanKernel. It's basically the stock EH09 kernel repacked (using supercurio's repack utils) with modified initramfs.

Features
  • full voodoo lagfix support and auto conversion between rfs and ext4
  • voodoo sound support (requires voodoo control plus app)
  • buffers, minfree, memory tweaks
  • init.d support (requires a good working busybox installation)

Changelog
  • v0.1.0 - initial test release
  • v0.2.1 - added smartass v2 support
  • v0.2.2 - i think some people were having issues with the smartass module. It's disabled by default now, but you can load it manually or in the ROM.

Downloads (for EH09 based ROMs only - no MTD)

RECOMMENDED: my leanKernel

flashed.... and we have voodoo!!!

almost doubled my quadrant. This is awesome. Thanks!

so is this the hard part, and oc/uv soon to come? jw
Injecting voodoo isn't too hard, but modifying source code will require lots of time and actually having the device in my hand. And I have neither.. I'll see what I can come up with in the future.

You should be able to use any recovery with ext4 support. Take everything i say with a grain of salt though, since I've never even touched a i500 phone. ;)

I think I know the answer, but this OK to use on CS Showcase? I have the rooted updated stock CS rom (2.3.4) installed now. Thought I would be safe and ask the experts.
