View in galleryThe G-Slate development is picking up pace. This newly released custom kernel meant for the G-Slate running Honeycomb 3.1 is testament to that. RootzWiki forum member ChifzReloaded, who was also responsible for bringing us the bootloader unlock, has released a custom kernel, that, for now isn’t fancy at all, but according to him, it is faster than the current stock one. The kernel offers no OC support right now, and whether that would be added to it or not in the future, is unclear for now. More on the kernel and how you can install it on the G-Slate, after the break.
The kernel is CIFS enabled, has USB host support, NTFS support and CFQ and deadline IO. So if you wish to give this kernel a go, here’s how you can do that.

- A rooted LG G-slate running Honeycomb 3.1. See our guide on rooting the LG G-Slate On Honeycomb 3.1.
- Unlocked bootloader. See our guide on unlocking the G-Slate’s bootloader.
- LG Drivers.
- Fastboot for Windows | for Linux.
- Custom Kernel.
- To begin, download the kernel from the link above and copy it to the folder where fastboot.exe is.
- Boot the device into fastboot mode and connect it to the computer via USB.
- Open up terminal or command prompt, navigate to the location of fastboot.exe and enter the following commands (for Windows and Linux respectively):
fastboot flash boot CRF-Bawse-CFQ-DL-CIFS-3.1.img fastboot reboot
./fastboot flash boot CRF-Bawse-CFQ-DL-CIFS-3.1.img ./fastboot reboot
Once the device reboots, it should be running the new custom kernel. For updates and queries, head over to the forum thread at RootzWiki.
