david522: Sorry for the late one guys.
The kernel I'm using is MICS (midnight ICS), I find it has less "tweaks" that do nothing like other kernels and uses the conservative governor which is the smoothest IMO. Give it a shot
Ok first download Team Hacksung CM9 B16(http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1363593), flash that with CWM. Then just flash Slim ICS with CWM once you've got b16 installed, then flash essentials with CWM as well. No ODIN :). All done basically and then install MICS/Semaphore/Devil for a huge ram kernel.
Just wondering with the MICS kernal does it also stop your GPS from working? I noticed my GPS hasn't been working since I upgraded to Slim ICS. From quick search people were saying it has to do with the kernal? Wondering how I can get it working because I'm loving everything else.
