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.
