Custom Galaxy S3 Kernel Zaventh R2 Released

This is a kernel I’ve made for the T999 to learn more about kernels and also to enable some features that I wanted. I built it on top of Romanbb’s Adama 003 kernel, so please go thank him there.

My philosophy is to build a stable kernel that is tuned for real-world performance and not benchmarks. I have been running this kernel for a while now with great success, but as usual I can’t be responsible for anything that happens to your device.


  • Insecure
  • init.d support
  • OC to 1.89Ghz
  • L2 Overclock
  • UV/OV
  • Add smartassv2, interactive, and conservative governors
  • BFQ scheduler
  • Patched up from 3.0.8 to 3.0.36
  • TCP proportional rate reduction
  • ARM topology support
  • Enable RCU_BOOST
  • IPv6 privacy support
  • NTFS/TUN module support
  • thermald tweaks

  • Samsung’s proprietary exFAT modules will not work with this kernel. Make sure your SD card is FAT32 or EXT4.
  • Please don’t flash this if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing as I’m too lazy to include n00b instructions.
  • You should already be rooted and have busybox installed into /system/xbin before flashing this kernel. As always, wipe all caches after flashing.

Thanks to Romanbb for the initial kernel including OC/UV/OC hacks.

    I’m still rocking this kernel and I love it. Are you still planning on updating it?

      If people are still interested, sure. I’ve been running Jelly Bean for the last few weeks so I haven’t been using it.
