    Finally out of beta... a public release.

    LoStKernel does not claim to get RID of LoS, but it does significantly cut down on it. Over the past 2-3 weeks, numerous people have downloaded it, and I can say that it has had maybe a 5% reported LoS rate, and of those people, they had a significant reduction in the amount of LoS they had.

    Now the kernel isn't all about LoS though, its fast and stable, and your phone will be smooth and snappy. That's the goal after all isn't it? something we can use?

    There are 2 builds of LoS Kernel, the Standard build, and the Experimental Build. The standard build can always be considered stable, on the other hand, the Experimental build is where features go for testing before they are committed to the standard branch. Also, the Experimental build is cutting edge, overclocking the CPU 1400mhz and 1600mhz as well as Voltage control and Setcpu interface support. There is also Gpu O/C support. (Terminal command support only at this time.)

    Both Builds are updated pretty regularly so check ACS regulary for updates...

    Download from ACSyndicate.net

    Standard features:
    Code:
    Wifi Driver Fixes (Memory Leaks)
    Conservative governor is default (Tweaked)
    NOOP Scheduler is default
    JHash3 Support
    CIFS Support
    Tegrak support
    Touchscreen Lag Fix
    DPRam Driver Tweaks
    CPUFreq patch to address issue with second core forgetting min/max clock frequency
    CPUFreq Bugfixes
    Read Ahead Tweak
    Sleep Death Patch
    SU binary (Upgrade-able)
    Superuser.apk (Upgrade-able) 
    BusyBox (Upgrade-able)
    CWM5
    init.d Support
    Bootanimation Support
    Plus Tweaks
    Exp features:
    Code:
    Everything from the Standard branch
    OC steps 1400mhz and 1600mhz
    U/v controllable from SetCpu and Voltage Control
    GPU OC
    Tweaked Voltages
    Minor Linux Version upgrade from .7 to .8
    Cutting Edge upgrades from time to time
    DO NOT USE TEGRAK WITH THE EXPERIMENTAL BUILD

    I recommend Voltage Control or SetCpu.

    to change the gpu clocking:

    Code:
    adb shell
    cat /sys/devices/virtual/misc/gpu_clock_control/gpu_control # To view current settings
    echo 267 300 > /sys/devices/virtual/misc/gpu_clock_control/gpu_control # Sets GPU clock from 160/267 to 267/300
    Please report any problems or bugs in the Exp branch to #lostkernel on freenode.net

    Now for thanks.. its a long list..
    Code:
    First off, big thanks to #samsung-epic-touch, #lostkernel over on freenode.net.. and #epic over on fossnet.info

    ACS, is a great team of testers and we find ways to make things happen. who else makes kernels like this without phones???
    Rjmjr69 makes things happen behind the scenes..

    especially that guy that said only ty developers code on the touch.. you inspire me daily.

    And Please remember, I do not own this phone... so before you ask me a question, think about whether or not it's something I could possibly know without having one in my hand...

    anybody else notice that after flashing this kernel that you can no longer change pages in the app drawer bu pressing the dots on the bottom? i restored back to a different kernel and everything worked fine. nothing else changed just flashing the stable kernel with cwm and it doesnt work again. very strange.

    they still worked for me... it actually seems a little faster than when I was stock, but I could just be imagining things. But they definitely still work...

    Are you sure you're flashing the stable kernel and not the experimental version? My app drawer buttons are working as expected on the stable build.

    Is this Kernel pre-rooted? I flashed it and I kept getting errors about not being rooted...

    Programs can't find Superuser, it's there but they can't find it. I'll tinker with it some tonight and see if I can get it to work.

    This kernel is included in Calkulin's new ET4G Rom which, IMO, is the best rom yet.

    Not being a smartass but are you sure you're rooted? Do you have superuser in your app drawer? If yes to both then grab the LoStKernel exp v1.0.0.8 zip do a wipe using Cal's wipe all, then wipe cache and dalvik. Cache and flash the kernel again? Let us know......

    I just manually flashed Superuser again, it's all fixed.
