Interesting idea on how to install the kernel. I hadn't thought of trying that approach with what I've been working on. Did you start with the kernel source downloaded from LG?

Someone care to make a flashable zip of this?
The feature list seems to all -too technical...any reason why I would want to use this kernel over the default stock that comes with e.g. Malladus ROM?

because its cool! Because it works!

he just got this thread up. Give him a break. He will need some time to get things arranged. $0 this is on time of his own free will without being paid you should show your appreciation rather than your,... whatever that was.

his way of installing it is very inventive. I wish I had thought of it long ago. Kudos to the OP. Well done!

Could you elaborate on what you fixed? "fixed gamma" is kinda vague. I thought there was a fix in the kernel of the KK google play kernel. Im wondering how you fixed in in this kernel.

By using the eabi 4.7 toolchain the gamma are fixed during the compiling of the kernel

Excellent work! I'm very pleased that my guide has been helpful in your journey to completing a kernel! A lot of people (including Lg), will be very happy with the gamma corrected for their device. Again, well done.

Thumbs up Great Job
This is a fine piece of work. The LG Pad's gamma issue is pretty well sorted here, with deep blacks, no wash-out and crisp, well-defined images. That yellow tint has gone!

Well done, you. You may be 14 but you can run with the pros - and show them a thing or two.
