Hi guys!

I'm presenting my kernel Code_Blue, that started as an addon for Purity ROM, called Purified Kernel.
Some of you know me from other Nexus devices asked me to bring back the project, so I did.
My releases are Dragon_Shield powered and I'm going to share them with you.

All I want is full smoothness, performance and battery on my hammerhead, so I build always with Linaro optimized Cortex A15 toolchains.
I aim for a "stockish feel" lean build and for stability purposes I will stay with GCC 4.9.2 for now.
Code is based of android-msm-hammerhead-3.4-l-release, forked from android/kernel_msm.
Useful and powerful picks are mandatory

Be sure to join Code_Blue users G+ community
You keep the spirit alive!


Kernel features:
  • Build on Ubuntu 14.04.1 x86_64 (Dragon_Shield VPS @ www.servercore.com.br - thanks @ChristianLetti)
  • Build with toolchains 2014.10 Linaro Cortex-A15 GCC 4.9.2 by @Christopher83
  • Full -O3+graphite support with device and target flags enhanced, linaro build improvements, etc
  • Based on android-msm-hammerhead-3.4-l-release + own commits & cherry-picks on demand from code aurora, linaro, etc.
  • Kernel compressed with LZ4-r123, custom tweaked RAMdisk with GZIP (faster boot times)
  • Removed some debug and logging options

  • Enhanced TCP methods (westwood is default)

  • L msm_thermal by @franciscofranco
  • Optimized RWSEM, AES and SHA1 routines
  • Vibrator Strength tunable (60% default)
  • KGSL fixes and reworked GPU driver (removed doubled freqs, goes to idle @ 27MHz)

  • doubletap2wake available (0:disabled, 1:enabled, 2:enabled fullscreen), option to disable with power button or after wake_timeout (based on @flar2 and @showp1984 work)
  • USB Fast Charge (USB mode up to 900mA with MTP, by @flar2), Increase battery charging current to use higher input current (on AC mode by @faux123), proprietary charger detection
  • init.d support (busybox run-parts required)
  • Kernel cleaner script by @neobuddy89

  • Featured on Rom Directory by @tFrost

Download latest Code_Blue Kernel zip, flash in recovery and profit
No mirrors allowed. Don't post hardlinks, use original links.
Changelog is available @ website also.


Builds are coded as follows:
  • releases on stable folder, build with Linaro Cortex-A15 GCC 4.9.* (probably weekly).
    For KK the last build is r450
  • cm11 on tests folder, same changelog as KK stable, build with Linaro Cortex-A15 GCC 4.7.4


Warning: If you come from other kernel, you should dirty flash your ROM before flashing Code_Blue zip to avoid problems.
Reflash ROM -> flash SuperSU -> Boot device and install busybox -> flash Code_Blue.
Also uninstall or clean data of any kernel control app you're using.

Nice! New kernels to play around with

Quick question: Can I flash this over ElementalX without having to dirty flash my ROM?

Just flashed it over PA. So far so good! Will be reporting back in a few days on the kernel's overall performance and battery life.

The reason I ask this is because the ROM I use comes with ElementalX. So, I'm not sure what I'm really suppose to do
