Hello everyone! I want to present you this kernel based on Elite Boeffla-Kernel with so many improvements, features and customizations. This kernel was originally built for Galaxy S3, but as requested, I also built one for Note 2. The goal of this kernel is to have a very good (gaming) performance, stability and battery life.
This kernel has so many improvements and optimizations to ensure smooth performance, long battery life and stability.

For the configuration, I recommend Boeffla Config app. You may download Synapse kernel manager (optional) from the link below if you want to undervolt Memory and internal. And also ABB

Disclaimer: I do not own a Note 2 device so I can not test it myself. I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device. Please have a backup of your currently working ROM and kernel before flashing.

Features (See the changelog for more details):

*Synapse support

*Working magisk hide

*Passes the safetynet check

*Compiled using UBERTC GCC 7.2.1 to give users a buttery-smooth experience

*Optimized arm instructions

*Link time optimization

*SELinux set to permissive by default

*F2FS: Partially update from Linux 4.3

*F2FS: Fully updated from Linux 4.2

*F2FS Backported from Linux 4.2 (by @arter97). As you know, CM kernels use f2fs backported from Linux 3.17, but this kernel uses a higher and much updated version.

*Supports undervolting CPU, GPU, MIF and INT (thx @AndreiLux). Most kernels allow undervolting CPU and GPU ONLY but this kernel allows you to undervolt almost everything.

*Adaptive Body Bias Control (thx @AndreiLux)

*Supports over clocking up to 2.0GHz

*Multicore power saving control

*Improved caching and memory management

*Mount namespace backported from Linux 3.8

*fq_codel packet scheduler backported from Linux 3.5

*Fast pseudo random number generator (frandom)

*Doze enabled by default

*all Boeffla and Elite Boeffla Kernel goodies

*and much more including internal improvements and backports (see 2nd post for changelog)

@Lord Boeffla for his great kernel

Do you like my work? Then a coffee will be of great help for me.
