Short summary:
After months of testing this kernel in the Telegram group the kernel is finally released on XDA.
The kernel aims at providing you a very smooth experience, great idle while maintaining the best of your battery life. Some of my personal results are attached to this post.

General list:
- First unified S8/S8+ kernel for F(D)/N variants only: 1 kernel to support both devices (AIK hax, because im lazy and its faster, cleaner and more stable.)
- Based on the latest kernel source and supports N8 ports & S8 stock roms
- Compiled with Google 4.9 Toolchain
- Permissive by default
- Knox 0x0 with Safetynet bypass
- Fading LED control
- Wakelock control
- LZ4 fast compressed
- Idle improved
- Memory management tweaked for a better battery life and performance
- Extra governors & I/O schedulers added

Nougat

Oreo

Changelog:


V1 - Initial XDA release, based on 2nd test 38

R2:
- Fixed freezes that was caused to a minority of users on particular roms
- Fast charging fixed to work for everyone
- Potentially improved battery life at the cost of slight overhead

R3:
- Fixups and hiccups
- GPU control added in Synapse

R4:
- Removed Synapse and OC, mtweaks is good enough
- Based on Test 50

R5:
- Oreo release

R6
- Merged N8 March Oreo source
- LED fixed
- WiFi blob detection fixed (still requires a few files due nvram path..)
- Faster booting
- Tweaked for better idle drain and battery life

R7
- Bug fixes caused by N8 merge

R8
- Rebased the kernel by filtering out bad changes for battery life, performance and so on.
- Updated to latest CRD source
- Fixed LED (hopefully definitely)
- Fixed WiFi (works like stock kernel)
- Mount system earlier to boot faster
- Added overclock for cluster1
- Fully Permissive (no longer fake enforcing)

R9
- Removed lots of useless stuff -> faster kernel and less size
- Still CRD7 based with CREF ramdisk (CRED source has worse battery life according to my groups experience)
- More stable LED implementation
- Removed Fsync/CRC toggles because data stability is way more important than this benchmark cheater

R10:
- Fixup of R9

FAQ

Q: Does this support Stock/Port roms?
A: Yes

Q: Can you add X to the kernel?
A: No, this is a personal kernel and therefore won't have what I don't want. This is a take it or leave it kernel, so if it doesn't have DT2W, Flickerfree etc. then I'd leave it.

Q: I lost root
A: The zip contains no root, because rooting is optional. After flashing this kernel, you will need to flash Magisk or SuperSU yourself.

Q: I have a problem!
A: Make sure you use no Xposed framework. If we have that cleared, please post a dmesg and last kmsg of the moment right after the problem occured. You can use Syslog app for that from the play store.

Q: Want my Atuntu score?
A: No this is no pissing contest thread who can reach the furthest.

Q: Can I donate you?
A: No, I am doing this to improve my phone in the first place and sharing takes 2 clicks. Not into the money business by putting up a big ass donation button in the first post. Go spend your money on family or yourself instead.
