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!

Big-Big Thanks.
This is only the second one custom kernel for Mi MIX miui.
Can you add UV patch from LOS version by @pappschlumpf?
Thanks a lot.
Sure he can, the patch is universal, should work on any 821 kernel. But it is questionable if it is making sense, because of i've not seen any device working stable with even the slightest UV.
Have you tried UV with my kernel already and got it working stable? My Mix always didn't return from sleep. I'm fairly sure the 821 is close to it's limits with stock voltages.

It is necessary to use the UV only for the most used frequency, not for the entire frequency range.
E.g. when you use fbreader or something like this, use UV only for 307Mhz. This requires fine-tuning for each case and tasks. So it works more or less.

Looks like your CPU is a good one. I've tried many combination for sure before releasing my kernel with OC/UV included. My CPU overclocked well, but UVed in such a small range that it made no sense to use it on my Mix. As it worked in general there wasn't a reason to release it anyway.

Hi. I think insisting that it works for you is not necessary and that brings little, I think that the first time you said it we believed, but, it seems that in certain circumstances and with certain variables at stake, the wifi does not work, so that the partner and I have commented (I indicating where I came from and what steps I have taken) to see what the problem may be so that everyone can enjoy this great contribution.

A greeting.

Hi, i try a second time and the same occurs, i back to stock kernel again, disable kernel adiutor, try again and this time works.
I do not know if it will have to do with the kernel adiutor or coincidence

It is not related to kernel adiutor, as i am also using this app on my phone and everything is properly working! Have you wiped cache and dalvik?
