Announcement from eng.stk: blu_spark r64 unified is up!

Kernel features:

  • Full -O2 build with device and target flags enhanced, linaro build improvements, etc
  • Less is more: stockish OP7 builds based on OnePlusOSS/android_kernel_oneplus_sm8150 for max stability
  • Systemless installer (doesn't touch system partition, OTA friendly), AnyKernel3 backend (compatible with autoflash apps)
  • Removed some debug and logging options
  • ARM enhanced performance and battery patches
  • CVE security patches, general upstream and CAF fixes for important subsystems
  • Several CPU Governors (blu_schedutil modded governor merged from latest CAF sm8150 patchset)

  • msm_performance touchboost toggle on/off (enabled by default), tweaked cpu_boost driver
  • Enhanced TCP methods (westwood is default), Network tweaks and updated drivers
  • Several I/O control tweaks, added schedulers ZEN v2 is default, advanced filesystems enabled (F2FS, ExFAT, NTFS, CIFS & NFS)
  • Patched SafetyNet flags to pass CTS
  • Stock thermal driver by default
  • ZRAM Swap (LZ4) and with file disabled
  • Vibrator Strength tunable and Gesture Haptic Feedback control (touchpanel and FPR)
  • KGSL fixes and reworked GPU driver
  • adrenoboost enabled by default at low level
  • KCAL - Advanced color control for Qualcomm MDSS v2 (RGB calibration and post-processing features)
  • KLAPSE support (v5.0)
  • USB Fast Charge (USB mode up to 900mA with MTP on)
  • FS fsync toggle on/off
  • Wakelock blockers available
  • wireguard support

  • Compatible with Kernel Adiutor, EXKM, FKM and others


(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 -> flash TWRP --> reboot to recovery --> flash Magisk if you want (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 CM 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 r60 release (Android 10 unified)
All right crew!

First build for the 7T/Pro is up
This kernel is unified, good to go on OP7/T/Pro (I only can test on Pro).


blu_spark_r60 release

Quote:

  • All the goodies available from OP7/Pro
  • Synchronize codes for OnePlus 7T Pro Oxygen OS 10.0.1
  • CAF updates f2fs, dm-verity/init, mm, crypto drv, devfreq, etc
  • fs: exfat: version 2.2.0-3arter97
  • AnyKernel3 updates
  • If you use root, Magisk 20.1 or newer is mandatory


Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs (including OOS based ones).
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 LOS or other ROMs stuff like "this don't work, my app doesn't open, etc" or debugging features.
Also don't go spam and bug reporting on ROM threads if using this.

You can use EXKM or Franco kernel Manager.
It flashed and booted fine on my 7T Pro.

I'm already rooted. Flashing this over the patched boot.img will cause any trouble?

Indeed flash via autoflash kernel apps work fine in a rooted environment and is thw way to go atm.
Or sideload the zip via twrp, use usb flash drive, etc.
