The Samsung Infuse 4G is certainly a show stopper with it’s massive 4.5 inch Super AMOLED screen and a very slim silhouette. With looks to kill, this phone certainly deserves the developers attention. Defuse Kernel has been released by razor950 with the aim of developing a kernel that aims to be fast and provide some good battery life. More on the kernel and how to install it after the break.
The kernel is flashable either via ODIN or via ClockworkMod recovery and is based on gtg’s kernel. The kernel should work fine on all Voodoo enabled ROMs. The kernel also brings in neldar’s BackLightNotification (BLN) 2.3. The HZ value of the kernel has been adjusted to improve the overall smoothness of the phone along with a properly working Tiny RCU for better speed and efficiency. A patched, lowmemorykiller has been included with compatibily for Tiny RCU.
So let’s get this kernel flashed on your device!
