This kernel is only for Galaxy S3 International (GT-I9300) version,
and running Android 4.3 (Samsung ROM's) !

Many of you knows already knows me from my older LiteGX kernel series (for Android 4.1.2 & 4.3).
This time for SimpleGX, I would like to be closer of stock than LiteGX by removing a lot of unneeded things which finally were not gaining any battery stat at all. I had to review everything from zero (once again !).
SimpleGX is only looking for simplicity and stability, trying to aim for best battery life, smoothness and performance experience, than a pure stock kernel.
SimpleGX will now abandon all scripts that I created for LiteGX (even if some of them are still compatible but not recommended).
I really would like to create back a kernel which was my main idea, a kernel “flash-and-play”, nothing to configure, no need to be a nerd, every newbies can have directly best battery life and smoothness once flashed. Of course that’s every kernel cookers wants, but I would not qualify mine as a real “custom kernel”, since it’s not offering any app to configure it and having much more opportunities, at the cost of many random instabilities (freezes, lags, reboots, etc).
There is many differences between LiteGX and SimpleGX, you will have to compare threads if you want to know them.
I really would like once again to give a huge thanks to my friendly devs (post #3) who helped me a lot during all kernel building phase, learning me, and making adventure possible. I can tell also that Google is really a good friend, I confirm that ^^
I still don’t qualify myself as of a real developer, but just a basic person with some android/linux knowledge already.
As always, I’am enjoying sharing my contribution here on XDA for free, which taking me a lot of time to release, so if you can offer me a little beer (as I’am still jobless yet), I will really appreciate that and you will be added into post #4 ! LiteGX had more than 10000 total downloads, I let you imagine if everybody gave me at least a single dollar ! ^_^
This kernel must be only flashed over an official Samsung ROM and not AOSP/AOKP !
Feel free to include my kernel to your ROMs / Threads but please don't forget to inform/ask first via PM and credit me in your original thread.
★ WHAT TO EXPECT ★ :
(over a pure stock kernel) :
Best battery life experience.
Much better overall performance.
Efficient (only proven to be good ones and not affecting battery life) tweaks.
★ FEATURES (up-to-date) ★ :
Directly based on "GT-I9300_JB_Opensource_Update14" (XXUGND5) JellyBean Android 4.3 source from Samsung(for clean work and stability).
Compiled with Linaro Cross Compiler (4.7.4 / 2014.04) toolchain (optimized for Cortex-A9) with optimization flags.
Ramdisk from XXUGND5.
ZZMoove (v0.9 beta4) governor added (and currently as default). Built-in profiles available HERE.
Need supports ? all kind of questions must be posted on this thread directly. Be sure to read at least completely this first post before asking any question.
