~~~~S6 UniKernel~~~~


For Galaxy S6 920 F / I / S / K / L / T / W8

For Galaxy S6 925 F / I / S / K / L / T / W8


For Lollipop 5.1.1 only!


UniKernel Features
- Supports F / I / S / K / L / T / W8 variants of 920 AND 925 devices
- Supports 920FS, ID and SD Dual SIM devices
- All edge screen special functions on Edge devices working
- Built from official Samsung Sources
- Full init.d scripting support
- SE Linux set to permissive (will prevent private mode from working)
- Stock Clocks
- Fully working Auto-Root for all 5.1.1 roms
- BusyBox injection if not detected in ROM
- DriveDroid support
- CIFS / FUSE

Kernel Configuration
The TWRP flashable kernel now comes with an Aroma installer, allowing you to choose a configuration you prefer. It also comes with 3 preset options - Stock, Performance, and Battery.

The Stock preset will make the kernel behave exactly as a stock kernel - no turbo mode, CFQ scheduler, stock interactive
If no pre-existing configuration file is found on the phone, (ie - New ROM flash) the ODIN flashable kernel will also have stock behaviour.

Every Aroma option is clearly labelled with an accurate description of what the setting will change. You are free to reflash to change configurations or manually edit the /system/unikernel.prop file that is generated by the installer (and then reboot). If you choose either the performance or custom options and enable Turbo mode, do not post in this thread about poor battery life. Turbo mode costs battery. deal with it

Okay tried on the Canadian 920W8 and no call audio and Network Settings gets replaced with Sim Card Manager. LTE icon doesn't show anymore but data works!

Yeah, to be expected. the defconfig in the kernel sources I used was specific to the international versions only. I will need to download the sources for the T variant (and maybe W8) and examine them for file differences and defconfig differences. gonna take some time. However, i I can build a working one its easy to build 2 simultanoeusly for upload in the future. only takes 5 mins per kernel.

thanks for testing though!

If I flash back the stock kernel, will there be any leftovers from your kernel in the system?

So far no problem at all. Good work. I hope that some talented dev could port to our galaxy savoca color calibration... Thanks.
