[ info ]

So here is an Advanced Stock kernel with DUAL Recoveries for the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition!!



[ note on ZU GPE bootloader ]

so i have done some testing on a users device and here is what i found:
  • there are signature verification issues if u try and flash a modified OTA zip
  • even after unlocking bootloader we cant flash custom recovery to internal recovery (FOTAKernel partition)
  • i have tried:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  • and
    Code:
    fastboot flash FOTAKernel recovery.img
  • it flashes correctly but device still goes to standard recovery
  • then i tried with rooted device and directly DDed onto the FOTAKernel partition, the device never entered that recovery
  • so i am guessing tht Sony has blocked access to the FOTAKernel partition for flashing custom recoveries

only option remaining... use the old recovery in boot kernel system...

Awesome! I can't use it myself (Xperia), but it's awesome to have a new kernel for the GPe. Speaking of GPe, you should make that "only for GPe" warning a little bigger and redder. Do not underestimate the stupidity of some people.

@Reb0rn

The fact that it gives you proper recoveries incorporated into stock kernel... It's a naming system I have followed for some time now...

@DooMLoRD

Could you provide OCing options to this kernel ?
With open Bootloader it was always my dream to OC + UV the stunning GPE Edition.
It would be wonderful to have this option, it would be really mad ocing the Adreno 330 while joining full X-Reality and Sony Sound enhancements.

Plzz *-*

I dont have this device with me, I have posted this kernel as a "thank you" for the community since i used the files form this device... but i wont be developing for this device as i dont have it with me...

and yes if a new update of OS/kernel comes I will keep updating this advanced stock kernel...
