Disclaimer: We here at Area 51 Development Group are formally Not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone while you are installing a non market item with this in mind installing this is totally at your Discretion, This an Odin Install and is usually a Painless Process, also be aware that Doing this will ROOT your phone and Void any Warranty you may have on your phone. Installing software not from the market has its risks, This software has been tested by Myself and my Beta Test Team. Still we are not responsible for what could happen if you use this product in anyway other than intended.

WARNING: This Product will Root your Phone and therefore VOID any Warranty that you may have, If you do not Wish to Proceed Please Delete the Software.

You must Install Superuser and Busybox installer from the Market if you do not have these already installed

This is a Test Fully Rooted Kernel that includes a remount script that gets installed in /system/xbin what this kernel does
is FULLY UNLOCK The FileSystem on the Phone, when you adb shell into your phone while running this kernel you will get # instead of $ prompt, no need to type su at this point cause you adb in as root.  the remount script will make life so much easier on your instead of having to type mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p9 /system    you just type remount rw to get read/write and remount ro to put it back to read only

This will be Installed with ODIN or HEIMDALL PLEASE DO NOT PUT A PIT FILE IN AS YOU MAY INADVERTENTLY TRASH THE FILE SYSTEM ODIN AND HEIMDALL WILL PARSE THE PIT ON THEIR OWN FOR THE PROPER MOUNTING POINT!

TEST Rooted Kernel

Ok so here it is. I did end up with root- but this did not do it alone or without issue. It flashed, booted fine (yellow triangle of coarse), root in adb awesome, remount read/write. But no wifi, and busybox wouldn't install- no su binary is what I was getting, no root permissions on the phone. After messing with it for awhile I decided because of write capability to try zergrush, and presto I have root (which also wasn't perfect titanium backup had to fix a permission) I am backing it up now, and then will see about fixing wifi.

I did regain wifi function, I had to flash entropy's dd zimage. I also kept root and remount capability with it.  I do believe entropy's kernels were the only ones with working wifi on stock rooted i777's running 2.3.6 also.

Oh I almost forgot busybox installer is not compatible with this phone, you need regular busybox app.
