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

Notes
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.

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.
