Crossbones Kernel Information:

Current version: 0.1.5
Kernel is included in ROM and not available or supported as a flashable zip.

Source Code: https://github.com/C...ossbones_kernel

The kernel that's included in the Crossbones is a customized kernel based on Google's latest source (Linux 3.0.8). The idea behind this kernel is to provide a kernel that improves performance and the user experience but keep the stability of the stock kernel.

This kernel has been tested by all members of the team for over 48 hours and everyone has had the same result: nothing but excellent performance. This kernel is not even overclockable (yet) and honestly, doesn't feel like overclocking is needed. Every new feature added to the kernel is tested by all team members to ensure it does not affect stability and only improves the kernel. Our goal with this ROM and kernel is to have better performance and keep the stability of the stock ROM and kernel. Overclocking and undervolting will be added to the kernel eventually so if you're looking to overclock the kernel, flash a kernel that lets you overclock. However, we recommend trying our ROM with our kernel for a day and you'll see how good it is, guaranteed.

Kernel Information:
* LulzActive2 Governor
* SIO Scheduler
* Fixed bug with cpu frequencies being reported to sysfs
* Set noop to default scheduler
* Google's/Samsung latest base (3.0.8)
* BFQ I/O Scheduler (Set as default)
* SLQB slab allocator (Set as default)
* LagFree CPU Governor (Set as default and our favorite)
* BLN
* BLX
* BLD
* Voodoo
* CFS Autogroup scheduling enabled
* Other minor things I forgot I as wrote this (I'll try to take notes)

Credits:
* Google and Samsung for a great base and device
* Ezeekeel for all his awesome contributions and tweaks used in this kernel
* Paolo Valente and Fabio Checconi for BFQ
* Nick Piggin for SLQB
* supercurio for voodoo
* All the other devs that contribute into this great open source community. If I missed anyone and you feel you deserve credit please let me know

Other:
During our testing, some of us preferred using no-op as the default I/O scheduler while other chose BFQ. We suggest you test and be the judge

Hello everyone,
Crossbones ROM is now available on ROM Manager.

Currently, if you are a premium user, RM will not detect an update for Crossbones if you are on a version less that 0.2.0 (which has yet to be released). So once, 0.2.0 IS released, RM will notify you of an update

I love the rom. Any news?
News...hmmm. No news for the rom for now. I've been really busy with life and haven't had much time to mess with the rom. In the time I do get to code, I've been working with Goo-Inside.me on their GooManager app. My feature for their app should be done by this weekend and I'll continue rom work...if my unborn daughter doesn't decide its time to enter this world :D

I want to include my notification Widgets soon, so that'll take a bit of time to get implemented. But fear not, for updates will be rolling out, even if they roll out slowly. (We can't have buggy code now can we?)
