Not in my plans for many reasons I stated many times.

I personally feel this is more a hype than real big improvement after reading some statements.

And... No ecosystem around it still, and too far away from stock.

Sorry for now

Well. Ive been using it for about month now and its indeed not just hype. But I understand that you want to keep boeffla kernel as stock as possible. But in this custom rom world we are already quite far from stock so thats why I asked. Everyrhing else is better w/ boeffla kernel.

Is there a way to remove kernel logger? Just to save some juice lol. I can disable it via stock rom, currently using teamasek. Is it temasek features?

I think there is a setting for it in the Boeffla app, Misc tabm at the very end.

There is only in Samsung roms.

If you switch off the kernel logger on CM or Omnirom based kernels, it breaks sound for some weird reason.

That is why I do not allow it on CM and Omnirom kernels.

Many thanks, Mad_ady... much appreciated.

Slowly it is turning to the better again. It seems, I can at least get an adequate new car in 3 weeks again. So, time to close this topic very soon I guess.

BTW - did not forget about your inquiry about kernel compilation. I am still a bit busy now, but will come back to you soon on it via PM.

Cheers

So, today at work I listened to music almost the entire day. With the "Intelliactive" governor set. I can report that I did not have a single audio stutter in that time! Even with the minimum CPU frequency set to 200MHz. This is awesome for me because I have always had some stuttering (Even at 300/400MHz minimum CPU frequency on ZZmove, PegasusQ or lulsactiveq).

Great, thanks for sharing this feedback.

But now I am curious about battery consumption compared to the other governors in your case?

    ** Note: This kernel is end-of-life and will no more be maintained. There will be no LineageOS 15.1 or newer kernel be available anymore **

    Hi all,

    this is the thread about the CM version of the well-known Boeffla-Kernel for the Samsung Galaxy S3 international.

    Note: This kernel is only for CM based roms!!! Do not install it on a Samsung based rom!!!
    For Omnirom, please do not use the CM kernel but the separate Omnirom kernel I also provide.


    Difference NG kernels to normal kernels:
    NG = next generation, it does use pure Samsung source codes only, not the smdk4412 kernel sources of the CM or Omnirom team anymore.


    If you are unsure whether to use the NG or the normal kernel, I recommend NG kernel always! Try it first if it works fine for you.

    For the Samsung Boeffla-Kernel, please go HERE.

    If you have questions to settings, presets, others configuration and wanna share your configuration, head over to the unofficial Boeffla-Config App Config sharing thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2621308

    Important notes

    When using new anykernel concept Boeffla-Kernel: Flash stock kernel of rom first !


    Compatibility

    Important: This kernel is only meant to be compatible with official Cyanogenmod and nothing else.
    So when the kernel does not run on custom rom XYZ, do not even bother me with it or ask hundred times in the thread for compatibility.
    I could not care less about it !!



    Support

    First read the FAQ section on the Homepage !!!

    Click here to learn about all possible kernel settings in the config app.
    Click here to learn about using the config app.

    I will refuse any support if you do any undervolting and experience freezes or hot reboots.

    I will also not provide any support if you do not use Boeffla-Config app to tweak the kernel, other 3rd party tweaking apps are known (and intended) to cause issues.

    I will refuse to give support if you have xposed framework installed and reporting any kind of weird issues. My opinion to xposed it quite clear: too powerful for >90% of the users that just mess up their system with it.

    Change logs

    (you can also access them directly in Boeffla-Config V2 by pressing menu and selecting "change log...")

    Change log for CM12.0: KLICK HERE

    Change log for CM11.0 NG: KLICK HERE
    Change log for CM11.0: KLICK HERE
    Change log for Omnirom: KLICK HERE

    Change log for CM10.2: KLICK HERE
    Change log for CM10.1 kernels: KLICK HERE

    History

    Basically I created the Samsung version of Boeffla-Kernel as there was no kernel for the Samsung Galaxy S3 around that had exactly the mix of functionalities that I wanted. I wanted to have full flexibility in undervolting and charge rates for instance, but did not like the sharpness and/or brightness tweaks many kernels have implemented as per default.

    Hence, I began to create my own kernel after a while, adding all the features I like. This is the result of my work, which in the end I decided to share with you. I hope you like it as much as I do.

    The objective of this kernel is to have a kernel for daily use. It does not aim for best battery life, or best smoothness or best benchmark scores. It aims more for a good mix of all, not sacrificing stability and functionality in the end.
    And - most important: It aims to stay quite close to stock !!! Which in fact for the CM kernel means now... close to CM kernel sources.

    This said, I will definitely NEVER implement:

    • dual boot (I do not need it)
    • color "calibration" (I do not like it, but I like the crispy stock colours)
    • real hard overclocking higher than 1600 MHz as this is outside of Exynos specs
    • f2fs - it is known to cause various issues and compatibility problems
    • a CAF based kernel
    • anything that requires upstreaming of kernel parts to a higher kernel major version
    So do not even ask for it. Everything else I am happy to check and decide.

    Compatibility

    To reiterate it again: This kernel is only for CM10.1 and CM10.2 based firmwares. It is not designed to run on Samsung based roms!


    Configuration of the kernel

    To tweak and configure the kernel, manually load and install the app "Boeffla-Config V2" from the downloads section on www.boeffla.de.


    Donation

    If you like my work, feel free to donate: Donation-Link

    You will receive a personal donation code which unlocks some nice comfort functions in Boeffla-Config V2 on top.


    Source code

    All sources can be found in my Github repository: http://github.com/andip71


    Credits to developers

    Of course, I had never been able to create all that by my own. So I want to give credits to the really good developers around, that have given me all the inspiration and from which I cherry picked lots of the implemented functionalities:

    * Yank555
    * ZaneZam
    * Hardcore
    * Chainfire
    * Harunjo
    * AndreiLux
    * Netarchy
    * Gokhanmoral
    * Simone201
    * Supercurio
    * Mialwe
    * Entropy512
    * Faux

    ... I just hope I did not forget someone. If so, please let me know and I will add you of course.
    Thanks to all of you for your great work !!!

    Disclaimer

    *** As always - Flash on our own risk! ***

    Make sure you flash the correct version depending on your firmware version!

    I can and will not take any responsibility for bricked phones or lost data.

    It is generally recommended to run a complete Nandroid backup in CWM recovery and safely store your personal data before you flash a new kernel.
