    here is the thread from alldroid.org. AllDroid - View topic - Update... Custom Kernel

    today AdamZ came out with a new custom kernel.

    It has...

    - OC (of course).. 250, 400, 550, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, and 1100... I don't like it... but I may be persuaded to add 1200 later... 1300 just isn't stable.
    - Processor Temperature Notification (for use with the TempMonitor App on the Market)
    - All the wifi tether goodies included...
    - Nand prefetch to increase speed
    - The Brightness and Touchscreen fixes from the 2.6.32 kernel (thanks to t3hSteve for posting the patch!)
    (This means the multi-touch and the auto-brightness issues are corrected)
    - And i'm sure more that I can't think of... my brain is kinda fried right now. And lack of sleep is getting to me...

    i have it on my phone along with Bugless Beast version 7.5. just put it on about 15 minutes ago and everything seems to be working fine. i have cpu temps and setcpu seems to be working. so everybody with BB 7.5 that wants the cpu temps again can flash this onto their phone and have cpu temps and setcpu working 100%.

    SWEET, I wonder if Pete has seen this... he needs a better kernel for his 2.1 ROM (the original he had lacks steps and CPU temp). Good find.

    all is good so far. haven't noticed any bugs yet. setcpu works perfect(actually goes into the charging profile when it should), wifi works, wifi tether works.

    Cool, if you get around to trying Pete's new 2.1 ROM let me know if this kernel works. I won't be able to flash till this weekend:mad:. If this works with that new ROM this sounds like a GREAT combo.

    yeah saw that, thanks. Hopefully by this weekend Pete will get a few of the bugs ironed out (like the auto-brightness ect.).

    Anyone post some noob instructions on how.to add this to BB? I hate the current kernal it has on screen keyboard lag. I'm running the new one on sholes but I'd rather have it on BB. Thanks.

    i hear ya. i would switch to his new 2.1 rom but i have everything i want with 7.5. one of my favorite things about his 2.0.1 roms is the smoked glass theme and the new 2.1 rom has the old regular theme.

    honestly i am getting a bit tired of all this switching of roms and kernels and such. i am just hoping this new kernel works fine. if so, then i won't be doing anything else until something major comes out.

    Yep, same here. Thats why I don't mind waiting till Pete fixes the few bugs in his 2.1 ROM. The only major issue with the current BB is the SetCPU charging thing which I don't particularly find a big deal (I normal charge mine via the computer anyway, and it does change profiles via the USB).

    Here's the first I see. Not much difference.

    1.1 Ghz instead of 1 Ghz
    auto brightness still doesn't work, keyboard timeout is still very quick don't know if those two go together.
    seems pretty snappy, running live wallpapers
    setcpu works like it should, charging profiles and such

    I with you there. I'm on Bugless Beast 0.7.5 with the Blue Glass metamorph, I think this kernal will complete my picture and I'll finally have everything just the way I want it.

    auto brightness works for me. i don't usually use it but i just tried it and it did work. seemed kinda slow but it worked.

    it does seem snappy, i'm only running at 800mhz. it may be snappier than it was on my previous kernel but i'm not 100% sure yet.

    i just put this new kernel on so i could see the actual cpu temps. i liked how BB 7.5 included this, but i had switched back to the kernel that came with 7.4 because of the setcpu charging issue. now i have both.

    just flashed to smoked glass 4.1

    running at 1.1ghz
    40 second boot time from M to seeing lock screen popup

    setcpu profiles working also (charging included), something that was missing from taz's kernels.

    so far it gets my thumbs up.

    Autobrightness is an issue with most kernels and 2.1 (there is one that has it working but it doesn't have the other goodies). Pete's working to fix it in his next release.

    The auto brightness is an issue with 2.1 roms, except utlimate 2.1.

    Wow this kernel flies too:

    SetCPU Benchmark: 152.0ms <--lowest ive recorded
    Linpack 9.301 Mflops/s
    Benchmark Pi: 2446ms

    this is @ 1.1ghz
