- Exynos-Linux-Stable is an organisation on GitLab & GitHub containing upstreamed linux for some of the latest flagship handset from SAMSUNG like the S7, S7E, S8, S8+, Note 8, S9, S9+, Note 9 kernel upstreamed to be inline with respective linux branches.
What does this bring?
- All of the devices mentioned above uses Long Term Support (LTS) releases, they are like old softwares.
- LTS releases are supported through their specified support duration by security updates, bug fixes, backports, and new device drivers, just like a regular release.
So updating or up-streaming your device's kernel brings many improvements talking security, performance wise etc...
How do I use?
If you are a developer, the reference tree is located in the exynos-linux-stable organization: https://github.com/exynos-linux-stable
This can either be merged into your existing kernel tree if you have one or be used as a fresh base. You do not need my permission to use it nor do you need to give me credit (although it would be appreciated).
If you are a user, ask your kernel developer KINDLY to use this source for his kernel that has all the changes added in!
