Siyah Kernel per Galaxy S2 giunge alla versione 5


Il Siyah, il kernel più famoso per Galaxy S2 e probabilmente uno dei migliori disponibili su Xda, giunge alla versione 5.

Tantissimi i cambiamenti apportati da gokhanmoral.

Tra questi troviamo il miglioramento del supporto alle CyanogenMod 10 e al dual booting con rom JellyBean e Ice Cream Sandwich, oltre ad una serie infinita di fix e ottimizzazioni:

– improved touch sensitivity
5-step GPU
– added arm topology patches again, with cpupower driver.
– merged with a JB leak (3.0.31)
– removed dynamic cpu freq steps. they are all fixed now.
– removed some settings from ExTweaks interface such as cfstweaks
– orbot is now working (only tested on Samsung ROM)
– Reboot into 1stROM, Reboot into 2ndROM in STweaks. (v5.0a2)
– STweaks added to initramfs. it will be autoinstalled only once. it is my own implementation of interface. There is almost no difference (except for resetting to defaults in the last tab) between ExTweaks and STweaks. It’s been used for some time in my S3 kernel and fairly stable. I wanted to put it in the last version of my S2 kernel as well. it is my second android app (first one is FastDormancy app).. it doesn’t have a fancy UI but not bad for a beginner  .
BLNWW (BLN Without Wakelock).
Touch gestures optimizations (thanks to Tungstwenty for the latest changes and for this great feature).
added speaker and mic amplification/sensitivity settings which are based on fluxi’s mc1n2 interface, reversed and ported to interface by dorimanx, tested and committed to my initramfs by robertobsc.
– automatic led brightness level. touch voltage level will be ignored if this one is checked in STweaks
– added B2G support (thanks to atilag@github for the initramfs changes).
– added an option in STweaks to set a delay in FB earlysuspend to properly play CRT animation (implemented originally by Codeworkx).
– reverted wifi driver to the one in cm10 kernel
– fixed auto-brightness issue on CM10.
– fixed some 2ndROM related problems in recovery when installing zips or restoring backups
– fixed BLN intensity when auto led brightness is selected.
– applied latest lulzactiveq tweaks from robertobsc.
mali and vsync related changes (mostly from Entropy512′s commits) which are supposed to improve the battery life
– removed battery and performance profiles.
– removed lots of cpu governors. available governors: pegasusq, ondemand, conservative, hotplug, lulzactiveq
– new optional GPU frequency steps. enable VPLL Mode in STweaks but make sure you read the description.
– fixed a CM10 specific problem with the new GPU steps but it still doesn’t guarantee that the new steps will be stable on your device.
– added slide2wake (thanks to Fluxi) + some optimizations
– added mdnie interface and made hardcore’s sharpness tweaks optional in STweaks
lulzactiveq fixes by robertobsc and added cpu governor selection back to stweaks
– Finally fixed vpll problem and made it default (thanks to robertobsc for his helps on testing)

Facciamo notare, inoltre, che nelle ultime versioni del Siyah Kernel è presente anche l’app STweaks.

E’ un programma simile a ExTweaks, sviluppato inizialmente dallo stesso gokhanmoral per il kernel del Galaxy S3 ma reso ora compatibile anche per il Galaxy S2.

Al momento non esistono differenze pratiche tra i due programmi, se non nell’interfaccia.

Ma presto STweaks potrebbe includere funzionalità avanzate particolari, come ad esempio l’autoaggiornamento del kernel, il flash di file .tar o .zip e addirittura widget per la gestione del dual boot.

A breve pubblicheremo una serie di articoli in merito che permetteranno a chiunque di sfruttare al meglio i Siyah Kernel.
Inizieremo da argomenti più soft per poi arrivare a parlare anche di overclock, undervolt e argomenti simili.
