After a year of experience I introduce to you a completely new Soda sparkling experience!
Release schedule will change: upstream version is abandoned, new official release every 2-4 weeks, nightlies every time new changes are made (see telegram channel).
Talking about this year - now my kernel is totally different. I've learned a lot, Soda is developed better than ever before. I'm also using my own toolchain.

Any LineageOS based ROM with vendor partition support.

download from AFH

- download kernel zip and check MD5!
- boot into recovery
- (flash your ROM if you flashed any sort of custom mods before)
- flash the zip
- reboot to the system and taste the madnesss
Always remember to flash the kernel on clean ROM!

The Soda Kernel

Known issues:
- A well known speaker/earpiece problems (it's not exactly my fault lol)

Could you add XYZ feature?
I will not add features I personally think are useless. I can only promise I'll take it into consideration. If you're so single-minded about that just fork my repo and pull request - I'll pick it gladly.

"My phone freezees help meeee!!!!!!!11oneoneone..."
Description, logcat, kmesg or GTFO.

Could your changes damage my device?
I don't take any responsibility for broken devices, firing from work or nuclear wars. It's a hobby project maintained in my free time. I carefully pick up changes not to mess anything up and add features that are checked and provided to work correctly. There is a small chance you could loose your phone completely, typically it will just freeze and reboot.

Where is version for MIUI/EAS?
MIUI won't be supported because Xiaomi haven't updated their repo for a long time. Building for MIUI would bring more problems than advantages.
EAS is in testing stage and will be released soon.

I have spent lots of hours debugging and testing. I'm developing this project in my free time but I'm putting my heart and soul into it. I'll be glad to see you appreciate my work!
Please, consider buying me a coffee

This kernel is not for ROMs which dont have vendor partition,
Perhaps we request to Dev to compile for us like Omni or aosip, or comming aospa

@xNombre I confirm working on pixel experience rom,
But the frequency was set back to 1.8 GHz, as compared to default darkness kernel 2.15 ghz,

One more thing, little cores min frequency not locking at 307 mhz, always going back to 1363 mhz

Any fix?

Thanks a ton bro for a fresh kernel
