okey dokey. ima keep a backup just in case tho (paranoid noob that i am ;) ill do that when i get a chance. i was just confused as to what the f$#% he was talking about. lol. i like to understand what im doing when i root something. thats why rooting the replenish was so fun! a bit scary (considering several times i was terrified i had bricked someone else's phone. lol) but fun! anyways, so i need to follow the Odin steps and let it boot like normal, then use a file explorer to find the install_recovery.sh and delete it? or do i delete it and then use odin? (see PARANOID NOOB) :D

and Firehak, you mentioned i should wait for PhoeniX 0.3? will it do the basic stuff stock does? (as in, will it run most, if not all, of the apps the stock replenish rom runs?)

PhoeniX 0.3 is nothing but a glorified stock running this custom kernel. I will actually admit that I don't do real Android development save for some basic apps at the moment and tweak my system performance.

Hey DMRLook, think this is worth looking into? It seems some good work is coming from the 3.x kernel development lately: Linux 3.3 Will Let You Boot Into Android: Greg-KH | Muktware. They hope to better its capability in 3.4, but I thought it might be worth taking a look at if you're interested.

just wanted say thanks, have a replenish running this kernel and it has certainly boosted battery and speed. My gf's phone has been decreasing 1% an hour with some use! She now forgives me for messing with her phone :)

Since this is an entry level android phone (novice flashers and all) I noticed that in OP it states must be running Phoenix ROM.
Its a lil confusing (was to me too) when I was looking for a kernel to boot up phoenix rom...
One can flash this kernel first and phoenix rom after to get successful boot.

(Not sure if I made it less confusing)

Still waiting on firehak. Just note that using SD-ext won't be a simple one click process like installing the kernel. That is because each user will need to save off the contents of the SD card, partition it the way they want, and then format it. All I do at the kernel level is enable the support for it and load the partition at boot time. Firehak wrote up a great instruction manual on the above steps. I provided some feedback and he is revising as necessary. I'll ping him to see where he is at.

dmrlook - I'm anxiously waiting a version of your kernel that enables firehak's data2ext, running it on the stock kernel feels so slow now lol.

Do you think it would be possible to set SmartassV2 as the default governor at the kernel level? I know CruseControl can set it at boot, but I have an issue where (randomly) it switches back to the stock ondemand governor, which causes a huge performance hit without warning.

I am currently running Phoenix .2 and I am using Link2SD, would I be able to install this kernel (will it play nicely with Link2SD)?

-Thanks

Yes. What he said. Also, FYI everyone. My replenish is no more so I won't be able to do any more mods for this phone. I've now got a galaxy nexus phone running jelly bean. One hell of an improvement over the replenish I must say. That being said, we have been able to do more with the replenish than spirit ever intended. Its a great little phone. Enjoy it!

thats great news that you were able to move up in the android world.
sad news for us since you were the last of the contributing devs on this device.
ive been caught up with one of my other devices right now, but would love to (as well as everyone else) add sd-ext support to you kernels with your permission.
