This is a temporary kernel with two of the experimental patches we are testing for the upcoming CM9 beta1. You can boot it by "flashing" in CWM. Nothing is actually flashed. It just boots this alternate kernel and your phone behaves like normal except with these changes below. When you want to switch back to the beta0 kernel, just reboot. Your feedback will help to determine if we will keep these changes for beta1 or not.
- Disable Samsung's mdnie.
- I have no idea what mdnie does, but noobnl says it "makes the color look bad". I personally think it makes some fonts look bad. What changes do you notice? Which do you prefer, beta0 or the way things look with this temporary kernel?
- Free more RAM by disabling FIMC1 mmap and reduce mmap usage for JPEG driver. 1.9 MB is freed.
- This has something to do with the camera, but we don't know what. It seems to work. Can you find anything that this breaks or slows down?
