Angry [KERNEL][ZL/ZQ] 78Kernel 4.3&4.4 29-aug-2014

Code:
I am NOT responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war
or the current economic crisis caused by you following these directions. 
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me
for messing up your device
I will laugh at you.
see the second post for more information



Use:
For stock or custom rom based in stock 4.3 FW 10.4.B.0.569 or 10.4.1.B.0.101 and 4.4 FW 10.5.A.0.230 or 10.5.A.0.233

NOTE:
For users of the new firmware, there were changes in the kernel of 10.4.B.0.569 for 10.4.1.B.0.101! Screen rotation does not work!

Installation:
Flash via recovery
or
extract boot.img and flash via fastboot

Important note:
The version 5 and more newer
was replaced mpdecision by AutoSMP, I added a script to zip by removing dependencies mpdecision, then it is highly recommended to install via recovery, otherwise you will get two hotplug controllers, which will cause problems!

Please, do not mirror!

Downloads:

*For 4.4.2 KitKat
78Kernel_v5 10.5.A.0.233
78Kernel_v4 10.5.A.0.233
78Kernel_v3 10.5.A.0.233
78Kernel_v2 10.5.A.0.233
78Kernel_v1 10.5.A.0.230

*For 4.3 JellyBean
78Kernel_v4.2 10.4.1.B.0.101
78Kernel_v4.1 10.4.1.B.0.101
78Kernel_v4 10.4.1.B.0.101
78Kernel_v3 10.4.1.B.0.101
78Kernel_v2 10.4.B.0.569
78Kernel Release 10.4.B.0.569

* Only 4.3!
If you come from another custom kernel such as DoomKernel is required to install the proper drivers WIFI
If you come from the stock kernel is not necessary flash
Flash this - Thanks for @TAL333 for tests

Bugs:
Indicate possible problems

Tips:

For Overclock:
For people who use overclock, and the necessary modification of a rom file "sysmon.cfg"
This kernel has overclock up to 1.7GHz
then you should use this:
Flash via recovery sysmon.cfg Overclock 1728000

Note: If you use overclocked other frequency is necessary to modify sysmon.cfg for equivalent frequency
and obviously, if you do not overclock is not necessary to modify sysmon.cfg
Because modify sysmon.cfg?
Because without it the max frequencies not stick in all cores

For people who do want DoubleTap2Wake:
Use this app created by @Soheil_rf, thanks for this

or

Flash this:
Enable DoubleTap2Wake

aaah, but I want to not use it, and now?
Go in /system/etc/init.d and remove 78DoubleTap2Wake
and restart

Summary of activities
Stable version

78Kernel on github

Enjoy and press the Thanks button if you like!

DONATE TO ME
Congrats bro!!

Time to unlock BL and flash it...
I have paced these forests for so long
I don`t know, if I am a man or I am beast
I though hold deep within me, a quest for revenge
Then I must be a man as much as I can be
I have learned to speak the tongue of animal
I have learned to read the signs in bark and snow
I have taken within myself the spirits of my fathers long time gone
In this short time, far from home
A man of iron I`ve grown...
...A man of iron I have grown

(Hail Quorthon... RIP)

If you like my work and consider me worthy, consider DONATE me too. Thanks in advance!

Thank you all for the comment

I will investigate if it is possible to dualboot, anything I'll post here
since our apparatus is capable of installing a kernel by itself (via recovery) which is very fast and easy, it would not be very important
The idea is to have a lightweight and stable kernel

That's it friend this is for stock or custom rom based in stock 4.3
Then go deep!

Default Feature requests?

Hey D78,
this Kernel runs my phone quite a while now and while I am missing some features from doomkernel I am pretty happy about it as it is just everything working.
Do you take feature requests? It would be great to have doubletaptowake on this kernel
would you do that?
Greetings
