Mi 5 standard version (32GB version) uses underclocked snapdragon 820 SoC. For people who want to run their phone with the same CPU and GPU frequency as normal snapdragon 820 (say Mi 5 pro version (64GB)), I compile this kernel for you. It is supposed to be used with LOS 14.1 (everything other than frequency keep in sync with LOS source). I know there are other kernels on XDA that also does OC, but they add a lot of features, and the one I tried is not very stable (phone reboots randomly on occation). This one is suppose to be as stable as LOS official build. I plan to make new builds when LOS update the kernel code.
Flash through twrp (or compatible recovery). You will need to flash the kernel every time you update LineageOS.
Q: On which ROM does will this kernel work?
A: All AOSP based ROMs. This includes (but is not limited to): LineageOS, Mokee, Slim, AOSP, RR, CAF.
Q: Will this MOD affect my battery life?
A: It will be exactly the same as any 64GB Mi5. AKT profiles is suggested if battery life is still a concern for you.
