This requires you to have an unlocked bootloader. You can try different methods to get your phone to boot up and to enable OEM unlocking so you are able to unlock the bootloader and flash these 4core patched boot images.
Not to deduct from the original work of @XCnathan32 or @xls654 in the original thread, but some members have asked me if I would like to create a new thread that is more regularly updated to make it easier for new and returning people to find the appropriate downloads.

What needed to be fixed?
This explanation was taken from the original thread. Minor adjustments made.
The problem with most of the devices in a BLOD, is that a hardware failure related to the BIG cluster has occurred. This fix remedies the problem by disabling the BIG cores. Unfortunately, this does mean that you will take a performance hit.
The ramdisk has been modified to reflect use of the 4 cores that remain enabled. This should help performance.
What if my phone doesn't have an unlocked bootloader yet?
You'll want to try heating up your phone just underneath the camera, or leaving it on a low charge in order to get it to boot. Then quickly enable OEM unlocking in the developer options. Different ways of doing it may be explored in the original thread (see above).
