Introduction

Hello everyone, this is my personal kernel for the OnePlus 6T, using it as my current daily driver.
My philosophy on the kernel is pretty simple, intended to replace the stock kernel, but with a lot of under-the-hood tweaks.

Hopefully you will all enjoy!

Important thread information!

I refuse to acknowledge/respond to bug reports that do not include clear steps to reproduce, a logcat, and a console ramoops (if random rebooting) or a dmesg (any other issues). Follow this guide to do this.
Keep things civil, no flaming in the forums!

Features
  • Up to date with OxygenOS 9.0.16 source
  • Compiled with kernel.org's stock GCC 9.1.0 for maximum stability and compatibility
  • Many tweaks under the hood for smoother UX, lower battery drain, etc.
  • Kernel uses stock WLAN module of OOS
  • Westwood as the default congestion algorithm
  • Disabled OnePlus's inbuilt debugging feature in kernel
  • Hides bootloader unlock from SafetyNet
  • Available to flash with AnyKernel3

Features that will not be added to future builds (so don't bother asking):
  • New, non-stock I/O schedulers
  • Wakelock blocker (they negatively impact battery life anyways)
  • OC options
  • Anything that's not standard (stock) functionality - i.e. DT2W, etc.

For AOSP Custom ROMs as well or just OOS?

First of all,judging the battery performance just from 100-91% and being happy is similar to premature ejaculation.Because drain from 100-90s is never accurate.
Secondly,those stats are nothing worth bragging about since most other kernels(including stock) will give better battery.

Thanks for the honest feedback, though I don't appreciate the tone.

Though you are right in that I probably should have given a bit more context - on stock I usually got about 15-16% drain on similar conditions, as I have 3 Exchange accounts constantly syncing, a Gmail account, as well as Whatsapp.

Ok so how much did you pay him to develop this kernel? If you can't appreciate something given to you for free, then at least keep that dirty hole on your face to yourself and don't open it in public forums with that arrogant tone. Kids like you is the reason why we don't see much developers being active here.

You don't have to respond to such ignorant entitled kids. You're doing a wonderful job. I flashed your kernel and honestly surprised with the battery life too.

I mainly believe in having pure performance over much features so this kernel perfectly fits my needs. Keep up the good work!
