3.0.x Kernel Released for the Samsung Galaxy S Plus

Kernel releases can mean great things. This often comes in the form of new features, such as new schedulers or overclocking. Some help save battery life, others help performance, and some still offer improved stability. Some are just awesome at face value. The Samsung Galaxy S Plus now has a 3.0.x kernel.

XDA Senior Member ivendor, along with support from XDA Recognized Developer arco68, have released the 3.0.x kernel for the Galaxy S Plus. It’s currently for developers only. It was released for the purpose of working out the kinks and making it perfect. The current list of what’s working and what isn’t includes:

Working List:
-3G & Calls
-Audio
-Battery
-Touchscreen
-Touch keypad
-Wifi
-Bluetooth
-Accelerometer
-Light sensor
-Proximity Sensor
-Vibration
-GPS

And not working:

Not working list:
– Both Cameras
– Digital Compass

That’s not too bad for a build released solely for development at this time. There are also some issues with display and USB, which are listed as partially working. Ivendor opened up the repository for this kernel, so anyone can submit a patch or fix. While there are test builds, it is recommended that end users wait until a stable release comes out to run it on a permanent basis.

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
