I'm a little bit confused as to which ROMS use 4.4 kk kernel? CM, PA, Mahdi?

Tip us?

Default I'm a little bit confused as to which ROMS use 4.4 kk kernel? CM, PA, Mahdi?

Hello everyone!

I'm currently on CM11 nightlies on my d800 and I'm a tad bit confused as to what is going on with the 4.4 kernels. What AOSP ROM's are currently using 4.4 and not the JB kernel?

Does that mean CM11 is falling behind because it's still using the JB kernel?

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks a bunch!!

There is a list that usually has [4.x.x] in the Roms description: [INDEX][REPO][AIO] LG G2 - ROMs | Kernels | MODs | Recoveries [NEW-UPDATED][5.5.14]

By the way, [4.x.x] is the ANDROID ROM version (Jelly Bean, Kit Kat etc), not the KERNEL version.

I think the OP is confused.. Maybe he's trying to ask the same as i..

1- What are the AOSP ROMs that are actually using the 4.4 LG Sources?

2- We all know that PA is using the 4.4 LG Sources (at least, Houstonn has started to merge them).. So, what ROMs are using Houstonn's source code?

This is exactly what I'm asking! I didn't know how exactly to type it out.

I don't have a direct answer. There is the XDA Kernels, but there isn't much there.

I guess searching would be the best thing to do.
Why the worry about the kernels anyway?

Mahdi 2.5 release 1
Paranoid Android 4.3+ betas
Furnace kernel 2.2.x

Those are the only G2 ROMs/kernels that use the full 4.4.x source tree, drivers and binary blobs. You need to use the LG 4.4.x baseband with these ROMs.

All other ROMs and kernels for the G2 use the 4.4.x Android sources with the 4.2.x kernel sources, drivers, and binary blobs. You need to use either the LG 4.2.x baseband, or the 4.4.x baseband modified by dr87.

You cannot mix kernels between ROMs if they use different source trees for the kernels.

And is you use the wrong baseband for the ROM, you will lose sensors, GPS, and auto-rotate; or it will bootloop.

Only those two ROMs?

So far, yes, those are the only two.
