Starship Kernel is being developed in conjunction with the not yet posted Starship Rom. Like I had done with the KK incarnation of the Starship Rom I am also posting the Kernel separately for anyone who may not like the Rom's Theme. Though unlikely as that may sound because I have spent much time and effort with the Kernel am posting the Kernel separately so it can be used with other Roms and not just Starship.

If you are looking for new features to play with this will not be the Kernel for you. It is designed to improve the overall experience as if it was not there. At this point and probably never you wont find over clocking or voltage controls to play with but rather just a more efficient overall experience.

Each Kernel Download section contains a link to the commit list for both the purpose of following rules about posting links to Kernel Sources as well as serving as a change log. You will find in the main branch all Linux Kernel Increment Updates are grouped into one commit. This is to easily distinguish what commits have been made as part of the Linux Kernel Increment Updates from other additions/optimizations that are not part of the Linux Version Updates. You can find descriptions of each change made as part of the Increment Updates in the staging branch. In other words the second link below the download links will give a description off the changes made in the Linux Version Updates .

Downloads

AOSP/Stock (Android Version 5.1.1)

AOSP/Stock Kernel is compiles using Google's GCC 4.8 toolchain and tested tested on the Stock 5.1.1 Rom as well as AOSP compiled Rom using unmodified pure 5.1.1 Source code. The Kernel may or may not work on custom Roms based on 5.1.1 depending on what changes have been made by the Roms developer and how far the Rom has strayed from the original source code. In most cases if the Rom is AOSP based the Kernel will work but provide no guarantee as am not testing with every ROM available. If you do find a Rom the Kernel does not work with feel free to comment but please include what Kernel was used that did not work as I may be able to shed light on reasons why and provide a workaround if possible. Most of incompatibility will find that the Kernel is not the issue rather what is included inside the boot.img like Ramdisk iinit.rc files that set permissions and create the Rom file-system.

CM-12.1

CM-12.1 Kernels may be updated more frequently without posting a new date so don’t be surprised to see multiple release number increments. In most cases there has been no change in the Kernel itself but update frequently as development is fast moving. Because of this some of the files that get packaged into the boot.img along with the Kernel may change and cause issues. Because of this will update as frequently as I can to insure everything packaged into the boot.img is up to date.

Just decided to include the CM-11 Kernel for anyone who may be using CM-11. Is a nice Kernel and gave me an extra hour or two battery so recompiling with a few new commits I have been using in both CM-12 & AOSP. Will post in a few. Checking nothing else may have changed on the CM side with the rest of the boot.img and will post in a bit.

Sorry about this then but have uploaded an update. I had intended on holding off until reaching Linux version 3.4.40 as it is the version I had left off with for Kit-Kat and have just been modifying each version increment patch from the Kit-Kat 3.4 Kernel for Lollipop. Anyhow last night before bed had used my Bluetooth Headset with the current version and sounded like I had gone out and bought a brand new higher end set so decided to post the update now. Found in the past Android can have a completely different experience when it comes to different BT devices like for example the same headset had become completely unusable on my N7 with constant skips and pauses on 4.4.4 after working beautifully on 4.4.3 so hope others can hear the same boost in overall audio quality including BT headsets.

Well it feels like with all the side track projects been talking Starship L long enogh maybe some of those who have sent PM's asking about the lollipop update are starting to become doubters so decided to post up a few screen shots. Was going to finish a few things then go over the theme image by image and color by color but think instead after finishing up a few things will post and then start going over each apk over again for touching up, fixing and adding missed optimizations including Kernel updating along the way. Once again not for everyone so haters can hate and I just keep doing it because its what I like doing.
