CyanogenMod 7.1 ROM + Trinity Kernel for Rooted Nexus S! [4000+ Quadrant][1.44Ghz OC]

I’ve always felt good about CyanogenMod ROMs for the Nexus One or the Nexus S, as one of the first/best ROMs for the Nexus series has always been CyanogenMod ROMs.

Well, CyanogenMod 7.1 just came out for the Nexus S, added with Trinity Kernel at 1.44Ghz OC gives you “wings”.

    hi, great job on this page ๐Ÿ˜€ i have a question about trinity kernel, is it possible to install this kernel on rootet stock ROM? Stock + cyangoen recovey?

    thanks for answer ๐Ÿ™‚
    keep ut the good work!


  2. Maciej says:

    i also forgot, if it is possible will OC work on stock rom? i was using stock for 6 months without problems, cm7 makes couple… but OC rocks! mine Nexus S i9023 got 5896 on trinity kernel 1,544 :D:D:D what do You think about trinity kernel in stock rom? (if it’s possible)

  3. Maciej says:

    i have problems with couple programs when my nexus s is overclocked to 1,544 or 1,44… for example sygic aura is rebooting phone :/ dunno why, propably cause it’s OC’ed to high.. do You know how to maka a oc step between 1000 and for example 1444? i can only choose this, nothing like 1200 or 1300

  4. jbandroid says:

    ok ok ok …. does the mms work with the rom on sprint’s network… ns4g.. like sending pictures, etc?? and like ol’ dude asked above can you just use a kernel with the stocked gingerbread os?? i have played around with cm
    wiht my htc desire when i was with US.Celluar i like it A LOT!! H ave not had the chance to play with cm7.1 with my ns4g.

  5. Chris says:

    Hey how do I get google wallet , Im on the Nexus S , not 4g , any help ?

  6. Fil says:

    Could you PLEASE show how the Flash-Performance is? Can you play 720p or even 1080p Flash-Videos while at the same time scrolling smoothly trough the web page where the flash-video is embedded?

    • Nexus S Hacks says:

      Not sure if you need to do that, the resolution on Nexus S is 800×480, even if you played 720P, it would still be 480P in reality. No need to go beyond 480P?

      • Fil says:

        And i am not sure if a Phone really need 1.5 GhZ ๐Ÿ˜‰
        I am thinking of buying a nexus s like my friends one but there is one thing which i dont like on his phone. Everytime he plays an embedded flash-Video the whole browser starts becoming really laging. Scrolling, opening new pages… everything becomes laggy

        Then i saw you scores here and i just would like to know if your phone is able to play flash and scroll smooth simultaneously. And just for curiosity i would like to see not only the basic resolutions (360 and 480) but also if its capable of playing higher resolutions (even knowing the Resolution is still 800×400)

        Thank you.

    I’m running a very stable rooted Nexus S with CM 7.02 and ClockWorkMod Recovery. When I flashed the 1.44 Trinity and rebooted, it hung at the Trinity sign-on. Any ideas on source of problem?

  8. StanDroid says:

    Thanks for the response…but now I have a puzzle about the role of Trinity.

    Based on this webpage, it occurred to me that perhaps I needed CM 7.1; I was running 7.02. So, I flashed 7.1, but did not flash or reflash Trinity. On reboot, SetCPU expanded to include speeds to 1500 MHz; and, the benchmark test showed the variation — including crazy fast — that could be obtained.

    Question: did the current CM 7.1 kernel include speed acceleration and thereby obviate Trinity; or, does Trinity offer something in addition to the 7.1 speed acceleration? Or, is there some other explanation?

    Hi, I just followed your latest guide on Rooted Nexus S ICS/Gingerbread (The TWRP one). I am running 2.3.6, with a i9020A (AT&T version on the Carrier 3 in the UK) and I was wondering if CM7.1 + the Overclock would work with my nexus s. Also, do you have a guide on how to install both these items with TWRP, as that is the recovery I installed when I followed your rooting guide. Anyways, I would love to be able to get CM7.1 + OC on my Nexus S working with 3G working and WiFi working… I just don’t want to brick my phone :).

    P.S. Very new to this… I have had 4 iPhones (have 2)

  18. Clement says:

    I’ve got this working and it is stable for the first 5-10 minutes but then weird things start to happen, everything lags, I’ve had graphics severely glitch up, etc… Until it complete freezes and I have to remove the battery. Is there a way for me to over clock it to 1.3? It will only let me slide it to 1.0 or 1.44 :/

  19. Latasha Quick says:

    Will trinity work for the galaxy nexus since it runs ice cream sandwich 4.02? If so how do i back my phone up and how do i download the kernel?
