- Nadia nightly Kernel Note 4 -
SM-N910F/ SM-N910G/ SM-N910T/ SM-N910W8

Introducing the Emotion Revolution Roms & Nadia Kernels for Android Devices.
Emotroid Rom/Kernel is a modified, aftermarket firmware/Kernel distribution few Android devices (Note 2, Note 4, HTC M8). Based on the Android Open Source Project , Emotroid Rom & Kernel is intended to increase performance and stability over Android-based Devices released by sellers, for example, Samsung, HTC and so forth. Emotroid additionally offers a mixed bag of features & improvements that are not presently found in stock variants of Android.

YOU are choosing to make these modifications.

First of all I want to say this that is one project which just started and gradually we will improve it. In this community there are very good developers and we are not traying to compete with them. This is just a hobby and we do it because we like Android. This kernel is only for SM-N910F SM-N910G SM-N910T and SM-N910W8 and we don't have plans to make it compatible with other versions of Galaxy Note 4. We hope that you will not only download the kernel but also you will leave your feedback with pros and cons and you should respect our efforts.
Don't be scared by the nightly denomination of the kernel.

PowerSuspend: hybrid hook
MPDECISION for performance/ Intelli-Plug for battery
Intelli-Thermal: enabled
MISCELLANEOUS: fsync enabled, logger mode disabled, crc disabled (you choice), Selinux Permissive
TCP: westwood for both

F.A.Q

Can I flash this kernel on Note 4 SM-N910C or other variant?
No, you can not. This kernel is only for SM-N910F, SM-N910G, SM-N910T and SM-N910W8.

When I switch to Ondemand governor I noticed that cpu-boost is disabled.
Exactly, Ondemand and cpu-boost doesn't work well together. When you switch to Ondemand governor cpu-boost will be disabled automatically. Don't re-enable cpu-boost if you are using Ondemand governor. (Synapse>CPU DRIVERS)

Which app can control this kernel?
By default, the kernel is controlled by Synapse, but you can use the app that you like (Trickster Mod, Kernel Tweaker, etc.).

I flashed the kernel and Synapse says: "No support UCI detected".
Reflash the kernel, since it was a bad installation and Synapse does not detect the scripts.

After flashing the kernel lost root what to do?
In case you loose root just flash SuperSU

Any recommended settings to follow using Synapse?
At the beginning of the second post.

After flash the kernel some apks give me FC.
Go to Google Play Store and reinstall those apks.

From where can I remove int.d script?
Go to /system/etc/init.d using any root based file manager and delete.
Note: There is an important one related to superSU and if you remove it by mistake you're gonna have trouble with root permissions.

My device doesn't show any reaction to undervolting (battery life is same as before) or gets unstable even on light undervolting?
Use DVFS disabler Module(standalone) (dynamic voltage and frequency scaling), this feature was kept in touchwiz for benchmark boosting purposes and will conflict with any undervolting and custom governors because it scales the voltages and frequency on regular intervals and is framework integrated, so gets a higher priority than kernel based voltage and scaling controls.
For people who don't know what is DVFS please refer Wikipedia.

Min/Max frequency don't stick?
If your frequency settings don’t stick, it's because on certain Qualcomm devices, there are certain system services (thermald/mpdecision/project butter) or kernel service that rewrite frequency settings based on current thermal status and/or touch input.

I made a logcat but my file is empty. How I can "fix" it?
By default Android logger is disable. Go to Synapse > MISCELLANEOUS and enable Logger Mode.

What is it PowerSuspend?
This new powersuspend PM kernel driver is a replacement for it and existing early_suspend drivers. It should give better battery life.

What is it Intelli-Plug?
Intelliplug is a replacement for mp decision. Intelli-Plug is Faux123 open source solution to Qualcomm's closed source mpdecision. Intelli-Plug is disable by default. It conflicts with mpdecsion, so is HIGHLY recommend turning off mpdecision when using intelli-plug! (If you use Synapse the change is automatic. If you enable Intelli-plug mpdecision will turn off).

What is it Intelli-Thermal?
an intelligent MSM thermal throttling kernel driver designed to replace the
closed sourced thermald(aemon) from Qualcomm.

What is it Frandom?
Frandom is a kernel random number generator, which is 10-50 times faster than what you get from /dev/urandom. And it uses very little (/dev/frandom) or none (/dev/erandom) of the kernel's entropy pool, so it is very useful for applications that require a handy source for lots of random data.

What is it CRC?
CRC is a mechanism aiming to prevent data corruption when is enabled (reduce the performance around 30%). So if you disable it improve the performance but your data can be corrupted. Use it at your risk.

Know/Reported/Fixed issues Know issues

1. Synapse doesn't show CPU governor tunables.
I'm trying to fix it. FIXED

2. Sometimes Synapse (and others kernel control apks) show that the min frequency is 1190MHz (or other frequency).
Just cancel it. FIXED

3. Ondemand doesn't work well. FIXED
Thanks for the report @Vangelis13

Any other Issues you may Report us and we will fix it

I will test it tonight but I read somewhere that it needs to be based on T-Mobile source for it to work.

I just want to say that I'm SO glad to see this thread / kernel in this subforum. To all my fellow N910T users: I've been using this kernel for a few weeks now after testing every other kernel available, and I've had the best experience by far on my N4 running Nadia kernel. The most recent release is incredible; stable as... something that's super-stable , FauxSound implementation! I have the paid FauxSound app and the sound quality of everything (in call and otherwise) is simply fantastic, if anything ever "goes wrong" for any reason, in my experience booting into recovery, reflashing the kernel and wiping dalvik/cache will fix it 99% of the time. I really encourage N910T users to give this kernel a shot. It solved pretty much every problem I was experiencing previously with my N4, and really made it run like I felt that the current primo device on the market should run!

Edit: Make sure to install BusyBox on Rails, free from the Play store along with this kernel. You'll have problems with Synapse otherwise... very important - just wanted to make a note of that Also, settings-wise, I mostly used @aukhan's settings in the video and undervolted -25mV across the board, which is a very solid place to start from.
