Let the Kernels Roll In – First Optimized Kernel for Nexus S Hits the Streets
Looks like development on the newest device to crawl out of Google labs is getting a lot of attention from our community. XDA member supercurio has released, what he deems as the first optimized voodoo kernel for the Nexus S. It looks like our friends in this section are not taking the time to breath between accomplishments. The new kernel has been optimized from the pre-compiled version the of the stock kernel. This one has had the initramfs tweaked to include some modifications that have been achieved by playing with ext4 data mounts instead of other file systems, which result in faster performance overall.
The kernel seems to have a bug present in it with the Bluetooth presenting weird behavior. The dev has asked to hold off on flashing this kernel. However, if you feel that you may be able to contribute to a solution, feel free to flash this.
This kernel based on the pre-compiled kernel shipped on devices.
Only the initramfs has been modified to include improved Ext4 mount options for /data.
Right now, it’s extremely close to your google-installed kernel.
Everything works as usual, the I/O are just a tad faster during writes like those used by the databases.
You can find more information int the kernel thread.

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
