    Credits to these guys for their amazing work!

    If I forgot someone let me know

    Has anyone tried this kernel yet?
    Alright I just flashed it and its working fine but, in EX kernel editor i usually put CPUs 6 and 7 offline when I toggle power saving mode on. This kernel wont let me do so, it only allows me put one of them offline so either 6 or 7. However its running normally and I appreciate your work dev, hope you find more ways to make it run smoother.

    Edit: Boot times? *chefs kiss* and its running smoother than before even when I limited max CPU speeds to about 1209MHz and put some of them offline for just normal use of course like texting and Youtube.
    Thanks for the reply, for sure more tweaks and optimizations are planned to ensure better performance, smoothness and battery life ;)
    That's awesome to hear! I've been looking for a custom kernel for my A70 for a while now but didn't find any good ones since most got discontinued. I think the only one that was promising is a custom kernel called Fire kernel by @firemax13 but that one seems to have been discontinued too and doesn't work on One UI 3.1 :(
    Well I played call of duty mobile at low graphics with max fps, and the performance is amazing even tho I have non of Samsung's game optimization services because as I said earlier I debloated my phone. However I put more stress on it by screen recording my gameplay using a third party app and listening to music on Spotify all at the same time. Device heat is pretty normal always in the 40's. Multitasking with all these apps open + CoD mobile is still smooth as butter.

    Edit: Forgot to say I had VIPER4Android FX processing sound in the background the whole time to my headphones.
