    Hi Wanam, i noticed that with your kernel (v. 1.3.1) there are some problems with exFAT: any ROM can mount and use it normally, but the recovery (CWM standard, Philz, TWRP) can’t mount it.. Is it a known problem? 😉

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      This has nothing to do with my kernel, it’s your cwm recovery limitation.

      • F a b i o

        Oh.. But with stock rooted kernel it works.. It’s for this reason I accused your kernel 😛

  • Nabil Silva

    Phone occasionally restarts when i open camera
    Do i flash the previous camera fix?

  • Eugeny Korekin

    I cannot mount cifs shares with this kernel.

    130|root@android:/ # lsmod
    cifs 232834 0 – Live 0x00000000
    dhd 476319 0 – Live 0x00000000

    1|root@android:/ # mount -t cifs // /sdcard/mnt/c/
    mount: mounting on /sdcard/mnt/c/ failed: Invalid argument

    255|root@android:/ # dmesg | grep -i cifs

    Can anybody confirm that cifs mounting works?

    Too bad you can not also not such a great kernel for the i9505 do …

  • Mohamed

  • Nabil Silva

    can i just flash it without doing a wipe or anything of that sort?
    has anyone experienced any glitches?

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      No wipes required, you shouldn’t get any glitches, this update is aimed to be much faster than v1.2

      • Nabil Silva

        im flashing it with odin but its getting stuck at boot.img
        please help

        • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          You are on what Rom?

          • Nabil Silva

            it worked fine when i flashed through CWM

      • Guest

  • Amin Yasin

    Installed odin version. Working fine.

    Thank you wanam for your great work. Appreciate tat.

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      What CWM recovery do you use?

      • Jarrah Eissa

        Will I get red exclamation mark when flashing CWM Recovery, just like GT-I9300?

        • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          No red exclamation on GalaxyS4, but Chainfire confirmed that your counter will increase even if it’s hidden on download mode.

  • Amin Yasin

    Hi wanam,

    The kernel works fine. But when I try calling someone the phone freezes. I reinstalled v1.2 and it works fine. I think its a issue with 1.3.

    Please let me know the solution

  • Spag

    thank you 😀

    I was wondering Will you be able to add a Chinese keyboard for V1.3 ?…
    Thanks again…

  • Ahmed Chaabane

    You have to correct this :) Posted in Galaxy S2 By wanam On May 24, 2013
