Bugfix nightly build b11.5 with audio fix

Flashing tips by @ramjet73, this should be read by everyone


This is an enhanced version of the developer preview that google released.

It has currently been ported for Mako and Deb and improved for Hammerhead and Flo
It offers a permissive selinux policy, aosp merged in and rock solid stabilty along with drastic improvements in speed and smoothness.

Deb does not have a working mobile radio yet, radio turns on but without access to the settings, we can't configure it. A work around is being worked on


The Mako Team @defconoi , @zyr3x , @percy_g2 , @ben1066 [MENTION=1050103] and myself

Huge thanks to @ramjet73 @bitstra @manueltts @skiman10 @psycho693 @jayfallen for helping me get it over to the other devices I don't have and testing everything I threw at them and the huge brainstorming and trying things I couldn't. It would have not been possible without these guys so please thank them

Big thanks to @jolinnard for the data on script, this has been replaced with the new kernel source but it was a awesome workaround


Warning. This has heavy ramdisk mods that are essential for it to work. You can flash current up to date "kit Kat kernels or L updaters only" but not full boot.imgs as this will break the ROM. If you do happen to flash a a boot.img, you can pull it out if the rom and fastboot flash boot boot.img

Hammerhead can only use L preview Kernels.

Remember, this is a port of a developer preview, there is already bugs in the official version from google and without the L code, we can not fix google's bugs. There are fixes to known problems in N7 2013 and N5 forums so if you do find them, please provide them with the bug

  1. Put the file onto your Internal Storage
  2. Reboot into Recovery (CWM/TWRP]
  3. "wipe data/factory reset"
  4. "mounts and storage" -> "format system"
  5. "install zip" -> "install zip from sdcard" -> choose the mako-bla-bla-zip and confirm flashing procedure
  6. "reboot into system"
  7. first boot may take up to 10 minutes - be patient

  1. Put the latest onto your Internal Storage
  2. Reboot into Recovery (CWM/TWRP)
  3. "wipe data/factory reset"
  4. "install zip" -> "install zip from sdcard" -> choose the [] and confirm flashing procedure
  5. "reboot into system"
Updater-script wipes the cache files so no need to wipe cache


Flo, Deb and Hammerhead use the modifed stock preview with the kexec-hardboot patch directly provided by @tassadar to provide multirom support. Flo and Deb use the same kernel.
Hammerhead -
Flo -

We are using the rebase repos right now since they are cleaned out


B11. -10-21-2014- Bunnypoclypse!!!!
Don't flash a kernel unless it is updated to the L-preview r2 kernel source or you will lose data.
also any kernel versions only

Percy's mirror

OT talk is welcomed in my threads and development is done in the open. I encourage involvement in the project in any way.
Please do not complain about OT, it encourages a fun and relaxed environment

Like the work I did, consider donating. I'm currently not working so it helps feed me

Yes, my PayPal account is thatguy32404, I like to keep my banking stuff separated from my social account

Bug smashing
updated kernel with l_preview r2 sources with data fixed
removed flo specific ported files
cleaning up

updated to latest preview
merged in n6 dumped apps and frameworks

Now over 9000!!!!!!
Updated selinux security policy
tracked down some missing permissions
did some other work but can't remember

updated fonts, res files, animations from the latest sdk
updater-script wipes cache files
updated some more google apps.
now using smart-art
force dns to google's public dns


6 finishes up the rebasing work from 5 (5.9 was just a stepping stone and getting it out to other devices so we could work out all the kinks)
(Mako only info)
The rebasing work meant a lot of clean up and trying to get it as efficient as possible so from 5 to 6 is a big step and will be quite noticeable
(mako, flo, deb)
updated egl drivers are from qcom developer are in here which are newer then the preview ones

(Hammerhead )
Proper working sound now

Built in Busybox should be working. I tested the functions and seemed good to me.
Got rid of all the looping code and debugging code to speed everything up.
Updated the preview proprietary binaries to the latest version (some can't go all the way up and are stuck on a previous set or even original preview versions)
(Hammerhead has the latest preview egl drivers)
Built in google apps have been updated.
Introduction of slim builds for those on a bandwidth budget.
Can't think of what else.
Most kinks have all been worked out

Rebased completely from scratch on 81c
improved reliability and stability.
Ported to Deb, Flo and Hammerhead

Beta 5
fully permissive sepolicy based on aosp, cleaned out a lot of crud
removed reliance on n5 frameworks, merged in some current aosp
improved smoothness and increased reliability, daily driver status

Beta 4

New Kernel
more smashy smashy bugs

@sykopompos you can put this too in the second post

Edit2: I finally found the official bug list here but it already has 657 entries and it's a little hard to read.

kudos to all the devs behind this... absolute brilliant work... everything working flawlessly with the exception of the know L issues...

i have to say i'm running the official preview on my N7 flo... and this runs smoother than that... i have no problems using it as my daily driver...

really amazing job

For those people having issues with 5Ghz trying changing your channel to one of those listed in this post:

I'm currently using 44 which seems to be the sweet spot if that's available where you live.

Nexus 4 aren't able to see DFS channels due to the country regulations on transmissions. But some routers were using those channels when you set it to auto, so try changing your 5Ghz router channel to non-DFS channel like 40 or 48.
Non-DFS channels: 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165

This is bleeding edge and may result in breakage, flash at your own risk.
Scroll down for updates, read everything.

This Kernel Takes the Best of Hellscore, Hellsdr, furnace, inception, mirage and Faux Kernel's for the ultimate performance on android L, this kernel is also compatible with Kitkat 4.4.4.

For all the features, use Synapse, and you must install UKM to see all the settings.

Grab UKM here
Grab Synapse here
Flash Busybox to enable /system/etc/init.d grab a flashable zip here

Faux Clock, Kernel Tweaker and other apps work, Synapse will show the most options

Older Kernels:

  • Intellidemand
  • Intelliactive
  • Intelli-Thermal
  • Intelli-Plug
  • Undervolting
  • FIOPS & ROW i/o Schedulers
  • Gamma Controls
  • Faux Sound
  • CM Gamma Controls
  • Double Tap to Wake
  • Init.d Support
  • Compiled with Linaro toolchain for speed

Only for Beta 4, flash in recovery

New Kernel Beta 5 uploaded:!ikg11B5T!q71jC4...4sAMuN4zz4JWmY

New Features: Faux Sound, CM Gamma Control Interface

Beta 6: Internal Release to debug dt2w

Beta 7 Released with Double Tap 2 Wake:!jlwjQQSL!2Qh2_h...B_091gkw2nPixA

Beta 8 Released with Faux Speaker:

L-Kernel Beta 9 Uploaded

*warning* if your CPU cannot handle -100 undervolt flash beta 8, I'll be reverting this change when I'm back home on Sunday.

Lower 81Mhz CPU freq, and lowered voltages to -100mv by default and reduced CPU steps, you guys must reset Synapse, and redo your voltages. This should increase battery even further.

Beta 10:
Added kexec hardboot, UV -100 still default.!29gVBKaT!uYpRdT...J6LA5cjfiS1qeA

New Ultra Kernel Build is up:

New Features:
  • Ultra Kernel Same Page Merging
  • Customized Lower backlight LUT for power Saving
  • Enabled TCP_westwood, vegas, veno, and cubic, set Westwood as default.
  • Added CK Patches for Speed and battery.
  • Added simple GPU Governor
  • Enabled 450Mhz GPU Overclock
  • Removed Undervolt -100 by default by request.
  • Now has default Faux CPU Voltage Table
  • Overclocked to 1.84Ghz

You must reset Synape App data or Reinstall after reboot, also voltages will need to be adjusted.

You'll Need UKM, grab it Here

You'll Need Synapse, grab it Here

Kernel 15u:!zxAVyLiS!pkk1Ly...4M8lx1x1t3TRGA

Kernel 16u Fixes wifi:!SkAXVZIL!HFce8q...hEed-TQKLFuNSk

New Kernel Build 18!e0pzgLYZ!L-L7YC...sQWbkC3LKUXtig
  • Fixed Wifi
  • Max Clock set to 1.5Ghz
  • Underclocked down to 94mhz

For those that like the OC, stick with 16u, with this you should get better battery life and great performance.

You need busybox installed for init.d support.

Synapse does not remount the system rw before setting an init.d script in WAKE, so first go to terminal or ADB Shell and type:
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system then open Synapse and click Set Init.d script with sweep to wake.

In /etc/init.d/ you should now have a file named UKM_WAKE:

#This file was generated automaticaly from Synapse/UKM.
#It contains wake options to be applied from init.d script.

echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/input/lge_touch/dt_wake_enabled

New Ulltimate Kernel Series Features:
  • Compiled with Linaro 4.7.4
  • New 3.4.99 Kernel

Autosmp as default hotplug:!KowEQIDJ!XkvTAR...KoyTvHg1WbZjOk
Note: clear synapse and uncheck all governors to use autosmp
To disable autosmp for other hotplugs use an init.d script because enabling an other hotplug will not disable autosmp unless you include this in init.d:
echo 0 > /sys/module/autosmp/parameters/enabled
@apb_axel said he is adding support for autosmp in next UKM release, stay tuned

I would like to add another yay. If there are any bugs, be sure to report them, try and include a logcat too please. They could well be Android L bugs too.
