Same from me, two clicks then reboot.
Model: SM-A600FN
Was on > A600FNXXU3ARK1 currently Downloading >> A600FNXXU3ARL1/A600FNOXM3ARL1/A600FNXXU3ARK1/A600FNXXU3ARL1
What I will do is a clean wipe, TWRP > No verity > RMM > Your kernel > Magisk 18.1 Cross this out.

Will go straight Stock ROM trough ODIN, TWRP and flash your kernel

Will update about success ;)

Actually I'm done with making the new v3.5 which should hopefully work on new bases. Please join my telegram channel at https://t.me/PhoenixKernelA6J6 for the latest updates. I'm still not pushing it to XDA as its not tested very much

I´ll test as soon as possible ;)

update: checked with patchlevel december and it works very well. only a problem like before autoinstall doesnt work. and so i installed magisk manually to get root ;)
the best way is like linxcaesar wrote i make it too all the time: a clean wipe, TWRP > No verity > RMM > Your kernel > Magisk 18.1 Cross this out.

PhoenixKernel V3.6 HOTFIX is here, changelog is small this time
-Added back "bootagent" and "SKMSAgent" apps to hopefully fix ramdom apps FC or black screen


Sep 27, 2018
Random apps keep FC, had to uninstall them, problem is the FC trend is followed by any other app
I'm using v3.6, is it okay if I just flash to v3.0 via twrp?

Its only 24 hours since I flash v3.6, 3.0 was fine for me
Method when I flashed v3.6 was: stock via odin-TWRP-DM veritt-RMM bypass-phoenix v3.6

Hello Renox, I´ve problems with bootloop since february-update! Is it a known problem ?


Hi, yeah its not unusual to have problems with new monthly updates
It's time to move on to OneUI anyway or install a different kernel. PhoenixKernel for Pie is coming soon (by soon i mean 1-2 months, i dont have the device) and I will try to make it nice and stable there

Thanks for keeping this kernel under development. But the latest android version for me is A600FNXXU3BSD2. Any chance of making this kernel compatible with android 9?

For some reason this installed Oxygen Control but when i try to open it it stays on a white screen for 30 seconds then it crashes ?? is it suppost to be there ? can i delete it, or how do i change settings in this kernel
EDIT: nevermind it started working when i fixed Magisk (it needed root)

    Q: Why is my OEM Unlock turned off?
    A: Don't worry about it. Some weird stuff happening there, it's still on tho.

    Q: Will you add AOD?
    A: No. Not because I don't want, because it's impossible. Trust me, me and other devs tried alot.

    Q: Will you add X feature?
    A: If it's possible to add and if it's not stupid.

    Join here to get updates about my kernel
    I have made a Telegram channel for updates on my kernel, maybe betas too.

    For reporting bugs
    So if there occurs a bug in the kernel, here are what you should do to help me fix that. Remember I work without a device so I can't replicate bugs myself.
    1. Write your phone's model number
    2. Write your phone's CSC code
    3. Write your security patch level
    4. Do you have any magisk modules installed?
    5. Explain the issue with details
    6. Replicate the issue, then boot straight to TWRP. From there go to Advanced > File Manager and navigate to /proc. Then find a file named last_kmsg, copy that to your internal storage or SDcard and upload it somewhere then send it in my XDA PM or Telegram PM at username MITKO7411XD
    Working perfectly with A600G latest update.

    For faster charging, I don't see any improvement. Still stuck at 1.500mA like stock kernel. Testing using Samsung Adaptive Charger and Asus Zenfone 2 fast charger.

    Thank you for testing! I could try to add Adaptive fast charging but i don't wanna risk explosion :laugh: Plus i don't have this phone. I mainly did the faster charging for people with stock A6 chargers.
