WHAT IS IT?
A kernel built from source and released as a daily driver, based on kangs of other proven code which has been known to be both useful and stable. It's name implies that this work is the hard work of others, not mine and I do not claim credit other than updating, merging it, and building it. I do this as a hobby and because I support open source... I have no donate button but will assist you in any way I can. Please just ask any question in the thread no need for PM, even simple questions are ok.
-OC of CPU up to 1600mhz, Oc of GPU as high as you dare, with trickstermod
-mpdecision from showp1984, and custom ondemand governor (default)
-OTG hostmode and simultaneous charging/fastcharge, switchable
-hotplug DAC support, ALSO NEEDS ROM patch, more info in 3rd post
-Smartmax governor via Oxydo kernel
-ROW,CFQ,DEADLINE, and new BFQ IO scheduler implemenation per mkernal
-firm sleep rtc driver, switchable
-support for most common usb wifi adapters, including rt2800(rt3070), ath9k, rtl8187, rtl8188, rt73, so many i forget, can add any requested if they're not there
-support for all easycap devices with backported drivers from linux 3.4 via linuxtv media git, see 3rd post
-kexec multirom support as a primary and or secondary rom
*kang of bricked kernel- uses showp1984's custom mpdecision and custom ondemand governor, as well as his implementation of CPU/GPU OC
*hotplug dac and otg fastcharge, firm sleep from usbrom
*Kexec support from Tassadar
*smartmax governor from sgt. meow
*BFQ IO scheduler, all other IO scheds updated
and LAST AND LEAST, my github tree
V2 with all modules, SELinux disabled:
V2 minimal install, just tun and cifs modules, SELinux disabled
XDA dev crue has taken the time to make an advanced power manager. With it you can control fixed install, firm sleep, and other kernelnsettings as well as control firm sleep and change the timers for audio focus and deep sleep. I HIGHLY recomend it for this kernel and/or oxydo. Latest version:
*****new releases can mean undiscovered issues. If you have any, please let me know so they can be fixed...ENJOY!!!!!!
SELinux enabled: I forgot, give me a day or two, Ill get one up. this build still just changes zimage, so works on kitkat or JB4.3.
bugfix: trickstermod thinks the minimum touchboost freq of 910mhz is the minimum system freq....NOT ANYMORE!
bugfix: tons of dmesg errors from touchboost in franco's interactive governor...governor pulled for now
bugfix: laggy and slow aroma installer which causes black screen from twrp screensaver...GONE!!!
-completely replace old GPU OC interface with new one from franco kernel. Users can now set GPU OC right from trickstermod, and go as high as they want.
-cgroups timer slack
-BFQ IO scheduler from mkernal, all others updated
-smartdimmer as implemented by mkernal
-built wifi back into kernel, no more module
-removed init.d script for hostmode controls, too many issues, use gscript or terminal instead, more info 3rd post
-removed governor option from aroma installer, still can't solve bootloops
-Now has support for all easycap devices, tho improvement is still needed, see 3rd post for more info
-set SELINUX to disabled for now to allow cifs mounting, solve some other issues
-smartmax from oxydo, and interactive for N5 from franco kernel, use trickstermod to change, smartmax is feeling very nice
support for r820t dvb sticks, and hopefully also support atsc tuners and US OTA TV.
FULL build with 307 modules:
Kernel and just cifs/tun modules:
Kang-aroo kernel 1.1 (12/12/2013)
-Fully updated to 4.4mr1, minus the battery driver changes.
- removed em28xx.ko for now, its not working
- smaller size, will eventually build wifi back in, but its still in module form to save size
-tested with purity rom 12/8 release, wifi is now working on this rom, and should be for all 4.4 roms now.
-Also tested purity rom with ART, reboot was slow, but subsequent reboots are taking about 20 seconds from the multirom boot screen, so all seems normal for kitkat now. ART was switched on BEFORE adding gapps, if it makes a difference.
-still running fine on smoothrom 5.3, which is android 4.3, but I will leave the older build up in case these updates cause any issues for older roms.
- everything else is the same, but DAC hotplug mod on the rom side kind've needs to be done in the source before ROM build to ensure functionality.
Kang-aroo kernel 1.0:
"Kang"ed from proven sources
*Tested with smoothrom 5.3, android 4.3.1, should work with 4.4, will be updated for 4.4.
*multirom kexec code.....credits to tassadeur.
*CPU OC to 1.6, GPU OC to 484, set during install or with trickstermod
*OTG+fastcharge simultaneously, requires otg y cable for power
*USB DAC support, with hotplug (please read below)
*Usb wifi support: ath9k,rt3070,rt73,rtl8188, others
*over 200 remote controls
*easycap dc60, also included is the em288 module which supports the newest genuine easycap device, but this is a work in progress
*usb webcam as a rear system camera
*media playback after deep sleep, even with externally mounted drives
