This kernel is developed by me to accompany Project Elite ROM. PE is developed by Actngrezy and myself. It is in incremental stages as it is being updated regularly. There will be nightly and stable releases. First, a little background on the view I have on kernel development. I build on aosp source with NO Linux kernel merges. This is because a large percentage of the patches from that are not used and do not get built. Also what does get built has had a history of causing sleep of death(sod). As for features I include what I feel is useful and most used. This is why you won't see a dozen different governors or schedulers.

Kernels include:
-fsync control
-color/contrast control
- gamma control
-vibration control
-high performance WiFi control
-OC to 1600
- Live GPU OC 307, 384, 512
-row, deadline, cfq and noop schedulers
- ROW scheduler is best for mobile devices and is default
- deadline scheduler is tweaked to favor reads over writes
-interactive, on demand and performance governors
- Interactive gov tweaked for smoothness and speed
- SR and control
- zram/swap
- content adaptive brightness control
- fast charge
- high peformance audio with head phone boost
- touch to wake w/ delay option
-voodoo sound(ported from kejar31 gs3 kernel)

**** builds 2-17 and newer are compatible with 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 roms

All kernel options can be controlled with Trickster Mod found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bigeyes0x0.trickstermod

About to flash now, I'm sick of so many stock based crap wares out there. If I wanted stock I wouldn't be scouring forums night and day. I'd just grab an iPhone. I want bleeding edge suckas! Thanks for the edge I can walk man!

How does the entropy mod compare to using seeder or is it doing the same thing?

I'm using seeder with the 01-01-13 room with your kernel and the ROM is running very smoothly with little to no lag.

Update: I read this from Imo’s lean kernel thread: "AFAIK, seeder app relies on periodic reseeding of /dev/random with /dev/urandom, and init.d tweaks rely on playing with wakeup thresholds. My kernel patch goes much lower level and reads directly from nonblocking pool, which guarantees that no process is blocked waiting for entropy to fill (and also makes other tweaks including seeder app redundant)"

So I guess his tweaks would make the use of seeder not necessary.

Correct the seeder app/mod is redundant with the kernel patch and not needed

More row scheduler improvements and interactive gov synced with the one from googles 3.4 kernel source. Also if you follow that link there is a 3.0.58 folder that will kernels merged with 3.0.58 Linux kernel source. The ones not in that folder remain as aosp 3.0.31 kernel source as a base. Both have all features
