[WIP][KERNEL]featherKernel - based off of Linux 3.6_rc1! (Developers needed!)
Mod Type: Kernel Difficulty: Very Difficult Mod Status: Alpha Mod Base: Other Carrier:
Requires Root: Yes Apply In: Other (See Description) Optional: Optional: Android Version
JUST SO THAT EVERYONE IS AWARE THIS IS NOT MY WORK. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED HELPING WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OR JUST SIMPLY WANT TO SHOW SUPPORT, PLEASE VISIT HIS ORIGINAL THREAD HERE.
What is featherKernel?
featherKernel is a kernel based off of the GNU/Linux kernel. Most kernels (infact I think all of them are) for the galaxy nexus are based off of Samsung's 3.0 kernel. Because of this, once we get this working, this will most likely be one of the better kernels for the galaxy nexus, and it will enable future development of better kernels from others, because this kernel is 100% open source!
So what state is the project at?
Right now, the project is at a state where it will not compile. I have been spending alot of time just trying to get it to compile, but still getting errors. I need help from other people who would like a nice challenge.
So how can I help?
Check out the source code at this link. If you have something that you think might help the kernel compile, reply below or PM me with your github username and I'll add you to the repo. If you aren't that code savvy, you can always show your support by clicking like, making a reply, or starring the github repo.
Once you get working builds, where will they be available?
They will eventually be available right here, at this thread.
This project isn't impossible. Similar projects have been done for other devices before, but we need all the support we can get!

Good luck with the project! Sorry I don't know much about kernel development, but I do understand the basics pretty well and I'm excited to see more people trying to base stuff on Linux kernels :-)
