If your Android device has an unlocked bootloader, it's undeniable the usefulness of having a custom kernel on your device. With no release of Linux Kernel version 3.4 from Samsung as of yet, it's great to see developers on XDA all contributing to make this possible for a mid-range Samsung device, the Galaxy S Plus GT-i9001.
The mastermind behind this creation is XDA Senior Member educk, who rebased support for the i9001 on the 3.4 kernel baseline, ahead of a release from Samsung. The kernel is still in the alpha stage of development with improvements and features such as:
- Linux Kernel 4.9.4 Released with Various ARM/ARM64 and Networking Improvements
- Linux Kernel 4.4.42 LTS Updates USB Drivers, Improves ARM64 Support
- The New Linux 4.10 Kernel Features So Far: AMD Zen, TBM3, More ARM
- Linux 4.10 Gets Early Support For NVIDIA Tegra Parker, Other New ARM Support
- Linux 4.9 Release – Main Changes, ARM and MIPS Architectures
- Linux Kernel 4.8.13 Launches with ARM64 and AMDGPU Improvements, KVM Fixes
