Hey guys!
So from observations by @rkoby13 and myself, there seems to be a demand for regular builds of DorimanX's kernel!
This thread will serve as a place for logs, reports, and discussion relating to these unofficial builds by me.
Currently the plan is to compile v9 builds, whenever @dorimanx adds major updates or significant modifications to his source, however this may, and probably will, result in UNSTABLE AND EXPERIMENTAL RELEASES
Disclaimer:
Dori tests highly experimental commits prerelease, and if your device is damaged, wiped, or in any way negatively affected by these releases it's not the fault of Dorimanx, or me. In flashing these releases you accept full responsibility for any consequences of its use.

In this op, I'll have a log of which builds are most stable and which ones have bugs reported or major issues in code, and builds with extreme issues will be removed.
As x.39 was just released, the first build will be uploaded after the next major addition to the kernel sources, and every major change after that.
If there is a commit that I have not considered major but is important to you, either reply to the thread or pm me with a link to the commit, and I'll probably update the build to include it. In future, I may also build v8 kernels until their end of life, if many people show a desire for this
Finally, just a reminder not to post logs or reports/discuss these builds in any other thread, thanks
I'll also soon be adding my new and improved stweaks settings guide, nearly everything is covered now.

if anyone has a domain they'd like to offer to mirror I'd be glad (hint hint)
dorimanx has decided to help out with building sometimes, and he'll post here! and apparently no one reads whole op, is this big enough?

latest build by cybernetus http://www.dorimanx.ataliba.net
aaaaaand computoncio has a fileserver too now!

Eskriminal's New and Improved DorimanX Stweaks Guide!
Starting off, I will not be covering stock standard info such as cpu clock, voltage, or the most basic governor variables. @droidphile has a brilliant comprehensive guide to these things and more, search!
Now let's get started! This guide will be in the same order as stweaks itself, and if i miss anything that you wanted, pm me
Topic 1. Advanced/Custom Cpu Governor variables
Here will be discussed governors such as nightmare, darkness, and perhaps zzmoove (if i have time), and their variables.
Freq_step
this controls how large the step up should be when the cpu load hits either the up_threshold, or the inc_cpu_load, depending on your governor.
It is a percentage, where the percentage involved is that of the cpu clock prior to the switch.
Down_threshold/dec_cpu_load
same as up_threshold or inc_cpu_load, but in the reverse, these dictate at what load to decrease frequency
Cpu_up_rate/cpu_down_rate
these values determine how many readings of cpu load will be collected (i.e. 60% or 80%) before being compared to the inc_cpu_load or dec_cpu_load respectively
Freq_step_dec
the same as freq_step, but for decreasing frequency
Freq_step_dec_at_max_freq
identical to freq_step_dec, but while cpu is at values above freq_for_responsiveness_max
Up_sf_step/Down_sf_step
both have detailed descriptions in app from alucard
<more to come>
Topic 2. Memory Management
This tab in stweaks dictates whether Dorimanx kernel should control the Android memory management system (Auto Oom Control switch)
The settings here control how it should control it, with the more aggressive the setting, the quicker apps will be killed at low memory.
<more to come>
Topic 3. GPU Tab
The GPU settings are all identical in function to the way CPU control works, with the frequency steps available and voltage/threshold changes.
The GPU utilisation timeout controls how fast the gpu should respond to a heavy load.
With the thresholds, as with cpu the higher they are the slower it will scale frequencies up, and the faster it'll scale down.
<more details to come>
Topic 4. Screen Tab
Here all screen settings and brightness controls are changeable.
min_bl controls how fast auto-brightness should increase screen brightness level, when this value is higher the screen will stay on minimum brightness for longer.
min_gamma and max_gamma control the minimum and maximum brightness available to auto-brightness
LCD Power Reduce lowers screen brightness to save battery
Screen colour modes control colour levels
Gamma Shift changes all brightness system-wide up or down based on the value put in
FB early suspend delay controls delay after sleep should activate before running the screen off animation
Vibration force controls the power of vibrations system-wide
Slide2Wake toggles waking the device by swiping across the screen from left to right
mDNIe Negative Toggle enables or disables inverting colours by pressing the home button the number of times set below
Touch screen tweaks control sensitivity options - They're advanced, and usually don't need to be touched
Topic 5. Sound Tab
Most settings are self-explanatory, if anyone wants this actually explained, shoot me a pm.
Topic 6. Big Collection, all Misc. Kernel settings! (BLN, CRON, Logger, Auto wifi etc.)
BLN controls whether to switch on backlights when notifications are received during phone sleep.
The bln effect controls the light mode of these keys (doesn't work with BLN without wakelock)
Notification timeout controls the maximum length of time the keys should be on before turning off (doesn't work with BLN without wakelock)
LED timeout controls the timeout on backlight keys during phone use
BLNWW sets BLN to run without forcing the cpu to stay out of deep sleep, saving battery
LED fadeout controls the effect when the keys switch off
LED on touch determines whether the keys will turn on when pressed during use
LED voltage level controls the key brightness
CRON is a timed automatic service which can be used to run various optimisations and updates as detailed in the 'Other' tab in Stweaks
Fix Permissions may solve fcs in apps
Zipaligning apps may optimise them to run faster
Database optimising will clear and compact the system data, potentially increasing system performance
GPS zone changes to your local ntp server may decrease gps lock times and increase accuracy
USB settings control the device storage mount mode.
Charge current levels control speed of charging from various sources, with the higher the current, the faster the flow and therefore charge
Resetting the fuel guage chip may solve issues when battery appears to drop after reboots, as the chip will recalibrate
The Ad-blocker will block advertisements by ip in most apps
Filesystem tools attempt to recover corrupt partitions on the disk
Root settings control device root security
Cortexbrain controls the switching between various things based on screen state including cpu governor and clock, io scheduler, auto wifi, auto data, and logger control
The android logger writes logs of system errors, disable unless you plan on using this
auto data disables mobile data when the screen is off, with the delay before doing so below it (auto wifi is the same for wireless internet)
Various tweaks change system values relevant to each one
Eco tweaks modifies hotplugging logic when battery drops below the eco-level threshold to save battery by preferring use of only a single cpu core

This is just a preliminary guide, my corrupted hdd destroyed the other one I'd been writing for @rkoby13

Can you please build a dori Kernel for 4.3 where internal sd card is switched? Internal -> external.

we'll see, unless many people want it it's probably not worth patching the changes in if I can
