What exactly is notest-epicmtd-kk44-20140324 for?
(I feel like this is one part that I don't know anything about...)
I wonder if that is something I should be using in addition to CM11 and gapps (?)
Thanks in advance if you can help me understand/learn about this.
I actually just flashed back the stock nightly rom to test whether the kernel impacted the wlan/openvpn performance, and it didn't. and when i was retrieving the link, i realized I was an update behind so i flashed that; notest-epicmtd-kk44-20140401-cma.zip via goo.im/devs/didhiy/sph-d700_cm-11.0 which also had no effect.
This is a custom kernel that supports the wolfson DAC in the phone, which when paired with the 'Voodoo Sound' app by Supercurio gives you greater audio output/clarity for higher impedance headphones. ie, my logitech triplefi's. the only app that seems to play every flac/alac file i throw at it and with DAC support is poweramp.
that said, it doesn't appear to have the voodoo color options enabled. the colors are more vibrant, but a little too blue i suppose in anticipation of the blue hues fading out. when i had a VC kernel with cm10.1, i noticed that with my phone the green was fading out, though the blues weren't too far behind. still, the colors are more vibrant, just slightly blue.
