  • Less is more: stockish OP5 builds based on OnePlusOSS/android_kernel_oneplus_msm8998

DOWNLOAD KERNEL ZIP
FKM download configs: oos | custom
Extras download location
(No mirrors please)


Warning: If you come from other kernel or have any issues, you should dirty flash your ROM before flashing blu_spark zip to avoid problems.
Reflash ROM -> if you want root flash SuperSU or Magisk (default, no plugins/modules) -> flash blu_spark.
If you are already rooted or upgrading between blu_spark versions, just flash the kernel zip. Also uninstall or clean data of any kernel control app you're using.

About bugs and troubleshoots: don't bother to post if a log isn't ready or without steps so the behavior can be replicated. I only active support stock OOS with NO mods whatsoever (apart from root). That includes NO support if using xposed, Magisk with modules, etc.
If you're using custom ROMs (including OOS based ones) or Open Betas you're on your own. I'm only interested on debugging stuff in stock and stable OOS.
Save the SOT and battery stats/screenshots for general threads, here we deal with development, not personal tastes and results.
Also don't spam this thread with LOS or other ROMs stuff like "this don't work, my app doesn't open, etc" , no OT about OTAs, apps, ROM bugs, Recovery/TWRP troubleshoots and other userspace stuff. There's threads for it, use them.

Going back to stock: This kernel installer doesn't change your filesystem. You can backup your boot.img with TWRP before flashing blu_spark if you want to go back to full stock or just dirty flash your full ROM.

Info 2 blu_spark r8
All right crew!

First build of your favorite kernel is up. Wicked!

Just got an OP5 developer unit yesterday from Oneplus, so today you already have a fully featured blu_spark build.
Most of the features you are used to from blu_spark on OP3/3T and others are in, this first build was compiled with Linaro GCC 5.4 (blu_naro 7.1 build still need some work).
Pretty happy with the stable and smooth base, next weeks will bring more of the usual goodies, there's still lot's of room for improvements

blu_spark_r8-oos_op5_49e4692.zip

Quote:

  • First public build (check OP and github for details)

Keep it real, keep it true, keep it blu

Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs (including OOS based ones) or OB.
Meaning, if using anything besides stock and stable OOS don't bother posting about it.
I am only interested on debugging stuff in stock and stable OOS (with logs and reproducible steps to replicate the issue).
Don't spam this thread with CM or other ROMs stuff like "this don't work, my app doesn't open, etc" or debugging features.
Custom build isn't compatible with EAS stuff.
Also don't go spam and bug reporting on ROM threads if using this.

Loved your kernel on my old Oneplus X and Nexus 5. So awesome to have you back.
Congrats for getting recognised by OnePlus and getting a free OP5.
