I put on a crappy kernel when I got my sgs2 when it first came out and now my music player is crashing so I think I need to change it again. Which kernel are you all running and why?

Try the speedmod kernel. No fancy features, but reliable and efficient.

I am personally using the ninphetamine kernel at the moment.

This troll speaks the truth,

Do people really notice a marked difference in usability and battery life from one ROM to another? I tried cynogenmod7 and 7.1 and didnt't really get the whole wow factor out of it, in fact stock ROM was more usable, though mine was on an HTC :)

Cool thanks for the replies, why these kernels and how much battery/performance gain should I expect to see?

Depends how much you overclock/undervolt things. Base performance is fairly similar regardless of kernel.

So if you're not going to overclock is there any noticable difference in running anythign other than standard? Noone has mentioned yet why they like the kernel they have.

How do you go back to the stock kernel?

I like the speedmod kernels because I've been using them since the original Galaxy S, they are stable and battery efficient but as Brendan above said it doesn't come with any fancy features such as BLN built in (although BLN at this stage only works on stock MMS and not on stock SMS AFAIK, correct me if I am wrong).
