Default [ROM+KERNEL][4.4.2-G1-N9005]FlexKat_Rev6.5 + KK_Xplorer_Rev1.8 -Aroma[10/Sep/2014]

Note:
This rom is based on the Samsung 4.4.2 and won't contain heavy mods or themes, install what you want.
I'm not a developer and not pretending to be one, I'm a android enthusiast.
Take it as it is and don't complain as this is free.
No requests.


Thanks to
  • xperiacle for the MW mananger & PW manager.
  • Chainfire for the SUperSU app
  • rovo89 for the xposed framework

Installation:
KNOX counter will be tripped to 0x01
Make a EFS backup
You need to be on the new KitKat bootloader (I recommend you first flash the original samsung full kitkat rom)
Install custom CWM or Philz Recovery with Odin.
First time you install this full wipe.

KK_Xplorer kernel Rev1.8 - N9005 - 900T & older

Q&A:
Odexing your rom:
Thanks to MatrixDJ96
  • Open Terminal emulator on your phone
  • su (enter)
  • odex (enter)
  • all (enter)
    Reboot your phone after it has finished.

    Note: you will need to redo this every time you reinstall the rom.

Note on CIFS:
In CifsManager: (share is a example can be a folder or drive) (IP = your ip of the device you want to connect to)
share path: IP/share
mount point: /mnt/cifs/share (can be what you want, place on your android device)
username: login (of the server, windows, linux...)
password: pass (of the server, windows, linux...)
options: unc=IPshare (This is not needed if you use MountManager)

Voltage control:
The Higher your Maximum Frequency to less you can undervolt. The maximum undervolting is -30mV on synapse.
I recommend you use the synapse app only to control the kernel.

Stock battery:
Use xblast xposed module , select the meter battery (or any other) icon in statusbar mods of xblast.

Synapse:
I recommend you use the include Synapse app to control the kernel feature. All build in features are supported with the synapse app.

Remember the Synapse app is created by Andreilux but if there are problems with the kernel and Synapse it is a kernel problem and not a app problem!!!!! Don't under-rate the Synapse app because of this. The Synapse app needs a kernel that support it, crashing is always a script error in the kernel and not in the app
Example of what it synapse looks like NOT representative for the one in the kernel !
 


Don't know what this is? Don't use it then!

Info for people that want to flash this:
Shutdown phone (don't use extended power-menu to go to download mode) Then powerbutton + volumedown + homebutton = download mode


KitKat bootloaders
Reverting back to older bootloader is not possible!
Install with ODIN only

KitKat Modems
Install with ODIN only, you need to be on stock kernel and use "Triangle away" to set status to official andthen you will be able to update the modem

If this doesn't work to update the bootloader or modem I recommend to install full stock rom with Odin , then install custom recovery with Odin and install the custom rom.

  • All of the above
  • DVFS Samsung limits removed by not compiling with CPU FREQ LIMITS , no need for the DVFS Xposed module
This will result in better control of the Scaling frequencies as no driver will interfere with your settings.
cpu power saving option from rom settings will not effect the kernel settings with the Xtreme edition.


05/06/2014REV2.5 SneakyKat Kernel change log info
  • Updated BFQ to v7r4
  • Updated synapse opions and layout
  • 900T support added

08/06/2014REV2.6 SneakyKat
  • Exteme and normal version are one now thanks to the new HardLimit CPU driver of Yank555.lu
  • New 2.0 Hardlimit driver
  • New Led driver 1.2 by Yank555.lu
  • With the new cpu driver the only good app to control this kernel is Synapse!

08/06/2014REV2.6B SneakyKat
  • Synapse layout update
  • NFC problem fixed for the 900T

10/06/2014 REV2.7Xtreme SneakyKat
  • Synapse layout update
  • FatsCharge Rev1.2 , wireless charging control @ Yank555.lu
  • Hardlimit control Rev2.0a @ Yank555.lu
  • Xtreme edition only, All samsung DVFS_Userspace controls disabled = Don't like it? there are other kernels for you then.
  • Antutu crash fixed when using 2.7GHz or higher. = Hardlimit DVFS control caused the problem = That is why I decided to disable all DVFS stuff in the kernel.

12/06/2014 REV2.8 SneakyKat
  • Synapse layout update = CLEANED OUT a lot as it started looking like a war-zone.
  • New settings layout
  • DVFS is back as I got my reasons.
    I had a good talk with Yank555.lu (as I misunderstood some things) and for my needs and opinion I made some changes in the kernel.
    Touchboost driver is limited to 300MHz so it has no effect on minimum scaling (setting is hidden). I also changed some settings in hardlimit stuff.
    DVFS HardLimit disabler is not available in settings. I believe DVFS is not a bad thing. The Antutu benchmark is stable and the scores are much higher for the benchmark freaks.
    Now if you don't agree with this point of view this kernel isn't for you.
  • Github updated

12/06/2014 REV3.0 SneakyKat
  • Synapse layout update = CLEANED OUT some more.

  • New source NF1 to support the new NF4 roms (fix for the Deep_sleep problem) = Reason why there is a new name for the kernel.
