The kernel doesn't come with root methods because I want users to have freedom of choices

And by the way, I can still root my device with Magisk 18.0 though

Can you try installing Magisk first before installing the kernel?

It worked only when i flashed back the kernel i was using which is tgp and in amora options i didn't choose a root option then flashed magisk Uninstaller then flashed ur kernel after and then super su and it worked! I think u need to modify ur kernel to uninstall any previous root for everyone to be able to flash their desired root method so they won't have any issues and i believe the issue stems from ur kernel not having a feature to uninstall previous root to start fresh with a unpatched/untouched boot image can you look into that please?

The kernel installer itself only replaces ramdisk files to the source ramdisk, which is from the previous packed boot.img of the device. I'm sure that it doesn't interfere with any root installation methods, or just because you installed a different kernel that heavily patches ramdisk files, which will cause Magisk conflicts in this situation

And for the option to uninstall previous root method, well.... I don't think I'm gonna add that, because I would like to keep the installer as clean as possible. Also for the uninstallation method, I won't keep track of Magisk or SuperSU ramdisk changes in future builds, so it will be complicated to uninstall these root methods. Only proper way here is to use their uninstallers provided by the developers, or just simply reflash your backed up stock boot.img, which is the cleanest way

Kernel running smooth and good. 3% drain overnight (~0.5% per hour, wich is acceptable for me)
My question is..will we get OC in this kernel? 2.65 or 2.81 GHz?

Great kernel
Let S8 get a new life
Now, power saving is the most important
S8 is a bit old

It is best to add voltage
This saves more power
thank you very much

First of all, I accept no CPU OC on this platform. 2,3GHz on big cluster is enough to kill battery when you run benchmarks already
Daily normal tasks won't even use up to that high frequency usually

Second, Samsung is doing something weird to the kernel. I did tried changing CPU frequency tables once and find that it automatically reverts to default. This might due to ECT driver that I am totally unsure how it works. OC'ing or even UC'ing is currently not possible

Oh no why adding voltage?
