Experimental Nexus S Kernel (3.0.27_r1) release

It seems ages since I did a stable update for the Nexus S, but I’m waiting for the flux to slow down with the 3.0 kernel. It seems every week or so there is yet another ‘stable’ point release for it, which is getting old quickly.

Still, it gives me something to do I suppose.

So, 3.0.37_r1 experimental is todays release with the following changelog:

  • Added some debug code back into the test releases to get better stacktraces when / if it falls over. Doesn’t really introduce any noticeable overhead.
  • Merged to 3.0.27 from mainline.
  • Compiled with latest Linaro toolchain – GCC 4.6-2012.03.

Available here.

  1. Thanks thalamus for the update ; just a question : what do you think about the "Bigmem" kernels flourishing quite everywhere, supported by CM9 for example ? Do you think it is really worth freeing more memory for the nexus s ? I mean we can come from about 330 Mo to almost 395 Mo (depending on the Rom too)......
