Announcement from dani020110: The best release so far!
Hello everyone, it's a pleasure for me to share this great kernel; this is focused on stability and battery life
My dream (since I bought this phone) has been to have a kernel that suits my needs, to have great features and a rock-solid stability
I put all my time and heart to get this awesome product.
Please read this thread carefully. I will try to do my best to help you if you do the same

I'm back at it again, wishing you a happy new year and with a shiny new kernel, with a LOT newer kernel base and with a LOT of unneeded crap removed, this project has taken me more than a year to polish and I'm still doing it, but I've reached a state where I think it can be tested by you. My second m4 has completely broken (because it fell down xD), so that's why I need you guys to test it and give me feedback.
I promise you that it this is a whole different experience, you won't have any random reboots or battery drains at all

Thanks to AndyPhoenix9879 for this banner

Some notes:

THIS WILL WORK ONLY ON UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS
For now I won't be adding features because I need to finish other things


About features:
  • Compiled with Linaro 4.9
  • Improved cpu frequency scaling, before it used to ramp like crazy, and now if you aren't doing anything it will stay at the lowest freq, you can use this app to check
  • I've also added a wifi module replacement procedure that will Always Work(TM), regardless if it has been screwed up by other custom kernels, so you won't need to worry about no wifi and/or moving the module manually
  • Latest upstream Linux kernel version 3.10.108
  • Optimizations from LineageOS (I've based my kernel on their kernel for the msm8916 family)
  • This kernel is based on the latest tag of the CAF branch for the msm8916 family on nougat (LA.BR.1.2.9), which has got a lot of security and stability patches compared to our ancient stock kernel base
  • Cubbins' kanuti_hwid driver for bands -> The stock kernel had a really crappy solution for the mobile bands of the world regions, so this awesome guy coded a driver for this!
  • Pure mdss driver + pcc adjustments
  • Pstore support
  • Latest sdfat opensource filesystem, replacing the ancient and closed source tuxera module
  • Usb HID keyboard/mouse support you can install this and you're good to go!
  • Refactored bmm050 magnetometer driver
  • bma2x2 accelerometer sensor driver from CAF -> The stock kernel had an extremely initial and ancient version of this driver, I've spent more than a month porting it to the improved and newer driver from CAF
  • A LOT of cleanups everywhere, most likely you won't get to understand the big amount of removed crap so I'd suggest you to check my source repo


To control the kernel:
  • Use Kernel Adiutor


Installation instructions:

Just go to recovery and flash the zip!
Enjoy :')

Hi @dani020110!
First and foremost, thanks for sharing your kernel!
After reading the mutha [email protected]#k'n thread, i did not yet find what features it does have.
You only state that we can't ask for unstable features.
Can you give us a spec list?
Thanks!

Oh and one more thing....no love for E2363?

If I recalled, he had some problems with Faux Sound Control (speaker suddenly became very very quiet) so he disabled it for now.
