Pepsy is a custom kernel that improves battery consumptions and performances. It's based on LineageOS's kernel to ensure the best stability. It has a lot of improvements made by various legendary XDA developers. I will ever prefer quality over quantity, so do not ask for useless features. And do not forget to drink a PEPSY!

I deeply appreciate your kernel for mi5, mi5 miui does not have too many kernels , but don't you think 2.45ghz and 681mhz is a little overkill, especially if your after battery , this may ruin the processor due to high voltages especially the most vulnerable is 820 lite variants shipping on 32gb mi5 , and there's also heat to consider

This kernel seems very good, now i'm wondering, someone can limit the freqs and it will use that max freq? i say because that GPU/CPU Overclock is def. overkill
