[KERNEL][DISCONTINUED] Quasar 2.2 v8 (for Nova & stock ROMs)
A quasi-stellar radio source ("quasar") is a very energetic and distant active galactic nucleus. Quasars are extremely luminous and were first identified as being high redshift sources of electromagnetic energy, including radio waves and visible light, that were point-like, similar to stars, rather than extended sources similar to galaxies.
Quasar is the kernel that comes with Nova ROM. It's based on LG sources but improved where possible and increased in features. It's a very progressive work. The first releases may also be experimental, we need to test out which changes are for better and which ones are for worse; I hope you can all help me with this task.
Now available for stock ROMs!
