Custom Nexus 7 Kernel Atlantis R2 Released

This is my first kernel build ever (not just for the Nexus 7). It’s an extremely stable kernel built straight from Google’s source with a few improvements.

It should go without saying that anything you do with this package you do at your own risk.

R2 Features

  • Insecure
  • init.d support
  • Overclocked to 1.5GHz
  • Voltage tweaks at OC clocks
  • BFQ scheduler
  • smartassv2 governor
  • lagfree governor
  • Made kernel version not suck

You should root and install busybox into /system/xbin before flashing this kernel. Don’t flash this if you don’t know what you’re doing as I’m too lazy to include n00b instructions.

Thanks to Virtuous team for their updater-script for this device.

Tilden Regional Park Google Earth Overlay

This is a bit of an unassuming first blog post, but it’s all I got at the moment. I Created an KMZ overlay for Tilden Regional Park in California. I had originally intended to use this on my Garmin GPS until I realized that the model I own doesn’t support custom maps. Download this to plot your next hike in Tilden on Google Earth or your GPS.
