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.

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.
