What is OscarKernel?
OscarKernel is a modified kernel based off of the stock kernel. It only runs on TouchWiz 6.0.1 ROMs for the Verizon Note 4. This kernel is built from stock CPD1 source. I keep my kernel very stable and simple, no flash and glitz, just a reliable and fast experience with some modern enhancements.
What toolchain do you use?
Christopher83's optimized Cortex-A15 Linaro 4.9 toolchain.
You can find it here

What features are in OscarKernel?
Code:
Rebased on latest VZW MM source
USB Fast Charge
BFQ/FIOPS/ZEN IO Schedulers
MSM Hotplug
Undervolting support
Overclocked to 2.8 GHz
Yankactive/Nightmare/Zzmoove
Minor bugfixes
Where can I find the source/changelog?
My github repo is here

How do I flash this kernel?
Simply copy the zip to your device or MicroSD, and install using TWRP.

Downloads:
v1.3 Download

Additional information:
Q: My phone won't remember my Wifi passwords, what's wrong?
A: You need to modify /system/build.prop to change this line:
Code:
ro.secure_storage=true
to:
Code:
ro.secure_storage=false
Have a bug report to make?
I need to see the kernel log. To get a copy of your kernel log, follow these instructions using ADB:
Code:
adb shell
su
cat /proc/kmsg > /sdcard/log.txt

I'm using Jasmine 4.3 but I was stuck in a bootloop (Galaxy Note 4 screen) after flashing the kernel.
So I had to flash MultiSystem kernel again ^^
