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!

Sorry for the negative feedback Psy_Man but this kernel completely annihilated my existing ROM. massive overheating when plugged in to charge an continual bootlooping? LOS 15.1 is awesome. This is not :( Followed directions and everything went wrong (one of the risks of custom ROM and kernels). Al;so destroyed my back up and TWRP for oreo (3.2.1.0).

Oh well I'll reinstall. Could not send logcat as entire cell an TWRP became corrupted.

P.S I was using your LOS 15.1 and not PE so that could be why? Pays to read the fine print. Sorry man :) my bad not yours.

What happened to you it's not related to kernel. You done something terribly wrong. I am pretty sure coz i am usuing it too and i faced no bugs at all. It makes no difference if you are on LOS or PE. Do a clean flash with Mi Flash Tool and reinstall all.

Hey I would love to know how to use the Mi Flash tool for Mi note 2. I am unable to get it to work? I am back on your LOS 15.1 and haven't missed a beat. LOS 15.1 is an awesome ROM. Everything is smooth an fast on it
