So, I was going to wait until I had the stock boot screen changed but since it’s taking me forever and today I spent all day long fixing my broken car (cost me $1000 WTF), I am just going to post Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel v3, which includes everything I’ve added so far.
First, I wanted custom boot animations for my new ROM (in the near future) so I’ve added support for custom boot animations. You can simply put any bootanimation.zip (800×480 resolution) in the /system/media directory and reboot.
Second, I’ve updated the kernel with the latest Superuser 3.0 and su binary files. I know some people were flashing a bunch of different kernels and previous version had some symbolic links, causing havoc. With this new update, you should have no more of that.
Third, USB mount is supported in CWM, you can mount your Epic 4G Touch as USB disk drive in recovery.
What I am working on now:
I am trying to work on getting a stock kernel, as soon as a stock boot splash can be made, this should be possible soon.
I am also going to compile CWM from scratch so you can mount both your internal storage and external SD card.
Other than that, some people are having LOS (loss of signal) issues but it seems like this is a bug on Sprint’s towers and/or Samsung’s code. We will all get this figured out soon or later so stay put but the kernels are NOT causing them.Want to stay updated on latest Epic 4G Touch Root news?
