Is it working absolutely fine for normal usage and for gaming(Clash of Clans, Asphalt)? I haven't flashed a custom kernel before so I want to be very sure before flashing. Could you please confirm!

Using this kernel for a long time on AOSP NOUGAT.
Decent performance with good battery backup after a few kernel Tweeks. Would love to have this kernel for Oreo Roms. Please! ?

    Hello everyone...This is my first step towards developement...I created Paradox kernel for learning and after adding many features, its time to release it to community...Paradox kernel is based on latest Lineage 14.1 sources and supports LineageOs 14.1 and all other lineage based Aosp (7.x.x) roms...My moto is to make a stable and balanced kernel having better performance as well as good battery life with usefull features :):)

    Once again, Paradox kernel is for NOUGHT ONLY (LINEAGE 14.1 and AOSP 7.X).

    -lionheart
    -ondemandplus
    -wheatly
    * Added i/o schedulors
    -Sio
    -Tripndroid
    -zen
    *Wake gestures (DT2W,S2W,Pocket Mode)
    * Faux sound 3.4
    * Franco Fsync control (enabled by defualt)
    * KCAL colour control
    * Powersuspend and LCD Notifier
    * Power efficient workqueues
    * Optimised crypto routines
    * Push readahead to 512kB
    * Optimized square root algorithm
    * Lz4 compression
    * Many Zram tweaks
    * Disable crc check for faster performance (upto 30% increase in i/o operations)
    * Blocked some wakelocks for extra battery life
    * Added many tcp controllers

    default : westwood

    Many more features to be added...so stay tuned

    Installation Instructions

    Note:- If you are coming from other kernel, flash your rom before installing it(dirty flash will work too) to avoid any conflicts.
    Also if you are updating to latest release of paradox kernel,you must flash your rom before flashing latest paradox kernel.


    Steps to flash :-
    - reboot to twrp recovery
    - clean cache and dalvik cache
    - flash paradox zip
    - reboot
    - enjoy

    Are you still active in this project development? Just curious as it's been a while since R4.

    I am not active right now but haven't abandoned the project once i get my laptop back from service centre,hopefully oreo build will be out.
