Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel v3 – Updated with Custom Boot Animations, CWM USB Mount, SU 3.0!

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.

epic-4g-touch-overclock

So, I’ve compiled a new overclockable kernel off xda users’s NeoPhyTe.x360 SG2 kernel, this should give you better battery life and also performance when you needed.

NOTE: This is only for Gingerbread and very old kernel, I’ve stopped developing this kernel so please try another kernel!!!  In other words, DO NOT USE!

For those of you who weren’t getting good battery life and also wasn’t getting performance, this kernel should help.

At stock 1.2Ghz (with no setCPU), you can get your performance back, getting like near 3400 o

Epic 4G Touch Root Coming Soon

epic4gtouchroot

(My Epic 4G Touch rooted but with no data connection.)

So, I’ve been working 24/7 to get the Epic 4G Touch rooted and I’ve actually got it rooted, just need to get a good version of compiled kernel off Samsung’s open source.

Basically what I did is flash an original Galaxy S2 kernel on the Epic 4G Touch with ClockworkMod Recovery.  Then I flashed SuperUser and SU in ClockworkMod Recovery.

This gives you full root except you lose data connectivity, voice, 3G, and 4G radios because the original Galaxy S2 kernel was built for GSM/HSDPA, not Sprin
