maybe will be interesting to create 2 versions of each kernel mod: 1) stable for all Uv settings, and 2) agressive Uv settings, to test device individuality. Maybe its irrelevant for the minimum gain between both.

Thanks for your amazing work with n9
actually i would like to let you guys to decide on you own liking tbh but it didnt work

on the other hand, i cant do an agressive uv build for each one since everyone's asv table is not the same, so basically no single aggressive settings can be applied to all devices, or i have to make a custom build for every user, which is impossible

I actually managed to cross the 2400 barrier. The next build will provide better performance, that's for sure. :cowboy:
Need some more testing

Next step: Defeating Kirin 980:devilish:. There are other improvements other than CPU performance.

20220122 update: v2.17i
read changes in post #2

result from @TechNoobForSale

how did you guys manage to keep your phone cool while testing it? mine was stock havent tweak anything yet (probabbly still doesnt know how) and when I tested it (cuz kinda curious as you guys scores are amazing) turns out my scores is just lower than u guys, but overall performance on gaming with the latest kernel is awesome as you increase the max freq for each big and little cores, im using Dr. Ketan ROM by the way and tbh I dont really like this ROM but this one so far the most up to date I can find that suited for this rom as it works on Android 10 One UI 2.5

what the best kernel manager for this tbh I downloaded hKtweaks and bought the EX Kernel it seems they dont do alot or is it just me who doesnt know how to use it? and is there a way to donate beside via paypal? as I dont have a Credit Card to register the paypal or if you really wanted to I know its hard to make a kernel manager which work the best for this Kernel maybe you can put 2 type on google play the paid and free as the paid (will be another way to donate if someone doesnt have a paypal).

edit : forgot to put my scores (I cant tell it is flexing cuz the scores just hmmm) probabbly ROM problem or overheating caused by the phone case (cover)

HKtweaks is the perfect Kernel manager for this Kernel if you want to keep it simple. Use Thunder Tweaks if you want a little bit of a more detailed interface.

Also, regarding the cooling, I used a Funcooler Pro device to prevent heating to an extent. But it will still throttle quite a bit. It should also be noted that old batteries are unable to feed enough energy to make the 2002MHz Quad Overclock effective. In fact, my battery, being old, can’t give enough power, so I need to perform benchmarks while charging to keep the voltage high enough.

I am on Alexis ROM, which in my experience is the best choice for Samsung devices. Give it a look. It’s a very, very nice ROM. And it runs One UI 2.5.

About the donations, ask @ykkfive

Also for gaming performance, funnily enough on 2.17i I ran into a bug that is preventing me from testing gaming performance. I am currently trying to troubleshoot but so far no success. It’s very frustrating because I was ready to break even higher records.

Possibly the next releases of the Kernel will have a higher thermal throttling temperature so you will be able to get higher benchmark scores and more sustained performance in games without need for additional cooling

There might be several reasons why you're getting a score like this, which is still in the rare side for Exynos 9810 devices.

I suggest you:
Disable Mobile data
Enable plane mode with Wi Fi
Install Brevent and use it to close background apps (VERY important)
Run benchmarks when the phone is cool and reboot it before running
No background apps in Developer options

With these tweaks you should be able to get much better results in both gaming and benchmarks.

no need to feel sad guys, he's insane. i didnt get such high scores as him too, just around 720 and 2300 usually.

but yes, in order to get high scores you will need to close all running apps, especially sync, and let the phone cool down before running any benchmarks.

anyway, lower scores dont necessarily mean your rom or phone is inferior. take a look at geekbench's website and you will find that you are one of the happiest ppl

a bug has been reported regarding setting the gpu min max frequencies. it is confirmed and i will try to fix it

in the mean time, try not to set these values if you are affected. i hope that a fix will be out soon

sorry about that
Said simply, minimum frequency GPU settings don't work. Trying to tune them will not have any effect on the GPU's behaviour.

Also max frequency is capped at 572MHz despite the table having 598MHz. But it's going to be fixed. And I'm going to break some new record. :coffee:

I'm driven by an immense hatred towards Samsung's work with Exynos 9810. That's why I keep breaking records. It's a very personal matter for me.

not too bad, but it can be higher, like 72x and 23xx. but if it's for daily use, then it's more then enough. you won't feel that differences really

remember he got a cooler, so don't compare with @TechNoobForSale 😄
Lol I am from north India and you can imagine the temperature here. 😂
I would love to see higher score if someone could share the best settings.

да. Потому что процессор любит низкие температуры. Чем ниже, тем лучше. Но аккумулятор не любит очень низких температур. Найдите золотую середину.
after installing the kernel on a super stable firmware 2.5, the phone starts to slow down

    Hi guys kinda new to the whole custom kernel thing since ive only use custom rom (dr ketan q18), just wondering if i can use this kernel without root? Something like flashing this kernel then leave it be, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
    I haven't tried but there is a non-root version of this kernel. I would just back up and give it a go, if anything just restore. Just make sure you're on the right build before flashing.

    Hi all,

    It's ME again, being inactive for a few years due to my health conditions since Android Marshmallow! Today I would like to present you something I wanted for so long... an updated kernel for One UI 2.5! To be honest, I knew there were a lot of changes since MM, but not until these days I realized how troublesome they are, including rooting a device these days!! ( just rooted my N960F/DS running stock pie for more than a year ;) )
    OK, here we go!!


    This is an update to the BeastMode Kernel vR154 originally developed by @freeza and patched with latest Samsung One UI 2.5 kernel sources.

    Some of the features from R154 include:
    - enforcing kernel (switchable between enforcing/permissive)
    - cpu/gpu oc
    - dt2w (double tap to wake)
    - wireguard support


    However, due to my health conditions, I cannot spend too much time to update this kernel everyday although I am jobless, nor to have frequent updates as what @freeza did to his BeastMode Kernel. So please don't expect things will come very often. Thank you



    Special notes for BeastMode Kernel v2 initial release:
    - in the initial release (v2.02) there is no fix nor new feature added to the BeastMode Kernel vR154, as it servers as an update for new One UI 2.5 ROMs released by Samsung only
    - for existing features, problems or solutions, please visit the original BeastMode Kernel thread by @freeza
    - new features will be added in later releases



    BeastMode Kernel v2:
    - built with EVA GCC 12 and Proton Clang 13.0.0
    - for cts profile/safetynet fix, please install the Universal SafetyNet Fix by @kdrag0n



    Planned features:
    - more IO schedulers
    - more governors
    - OC/UV (partially done)
    - f2fs (DONE!)



    If you like this, please consider donating a loaf of bread or something to support my living or buy some treats for my old dog @ https://paypal.me/ykkfive ( I don't need coffee or beer :giggle: ). Thanks!

    20210621 - v2.02 (init release)
    *** Special announcement for Dr.Ketan ROM Q16 - 20210623 ***
    it seems there are some compatibility issues with Dr.Ketan ROM Q16 and this kernel, due to the fact that Q16 is based on N960FXXU8FUE1 while this kernel is N960FXXS8FUE5. As a result you may not be able to login to Samsung Account, or have cts profile/safetynet issue. So please MAKE A FULL BACKUP before proceed.


    - updated with N960FXXS8FUE5 sources
    - tested with stock rom UE5, Dr Ketan Q16 with some patches
    - working properly with DevBase 7.4 and Alexis ROM 2.8 from users feedbacks
    *** make sure you have flashed N960FXXS8FUE5 AP, BL, modem etc

    ok guys, sorry to keep you waiting so long

    due to the latest linux kernel upstreams being applied together with those uv introduced before, we faced some problems with the artifacts. they are not major problem tbh but who knows. it will be a disaster for me to redo the changes again and again if it becomes a serious problem

    i had to decide whether we keep the uv or continue with the upstream. and after many tests i decided to ditch those kernel patches, at least for now

    i will then continue what i wanted to do with this kernel

    btw, the release build is ready, but i want to wait for the latest fuj2 patches from samsung as i dont want to release another build shortly after this one. i will send them an email later

    anyway, we will have some improvements this time again! so stay tuned!

    thanks



    edit
    here's a teaser from my hard working tester @TechNoobForSale. thanks so much for your time and efforts
    3
    Now I migrated bm v2.02m + Alexis 2.8 combination. All seems decent for now. Still boeffla and double tap sections are missing. But it's okay.
    Here is the devchecks ram performance attachment. (on v2.02)

    I am going to perform antutu and geekbench and post here.
    u mean 2.04m?

    I am on v2.05

    Ram performance is decreased, confirmed with doing devcheck comparison and antutu bench.

    tap to wake and sleep options are gone.
    boeffla options are gone.

    Accordig to Devcheck,

    Cmemcopy: around 5000 Mb/s
    Cmemset: aroud 7500 Mb/s

    on R154 these were 10000 MB/s and 15000 Mb/s respectively.

    Cpu an GPU performance are good.

    I am on Alexis 2.9 Note 9 SM N960F


    And also the voltage table that given by dev is passed two full antutu bench. No crashes.
    i have did some tests today and yes, 2.02 is the fastest one, it was the original one without any "enhancements" in other aspects like cpu/gpu overclocking. it is not unusual that these enchancements can be beaten by the one without in terms of performance. it all depends on the usage, and more importantly everthing comes with a price. so you may find it at stock max speed outperforms an overclocked cpu due to the heat generated (which trigger the mechanism to lower the cpu freq as to cool it down). eg a 10 seconds task running with 2000Mhz may be better than 3 seconds with 2400mHz plus 7 seconds with 1700Mhz. you see what i mean? of coz, once again, it depends on the usage and the way of using it like benchmarking or daily use

    anyway, thanks for your feedbacks, as well as others. without you guys' feedback i couldnt discover the bugs myself

    also, i may consider to make an extreme version, which will be rebased on 2.02 with FUF5 but without any unneccessary changes for those who focus more on the speed due to different usage patterns if there are demands for it. but in general, 2.02 is still working fine with FUF5 except samsung account login issues for some users i believe

    on the other hand, i will continue to cherry pick some useful changes to optimize it in general for the main stream version

    thanks

    EDIT 20210804
    a more aggressive gpu voltage settings is posted here awaiting a fix



    BM-Kernel-v2.04m released

    20210726 - v2.04m
    - compatible with FUF5 (** may have problems if you use lockscreen or samsung account with possible fix here. ALWAYS do a full backup first)
    - overclocked: cpu little to 2002000Mhz, gpu to 598000Mhz
    - undervoltaged: cpu/memory
    - support gpu under voltage
    - linux upstreamed to 4.9.250
    - cherry picked some kernel tweaks
    - for undervolting the gpu, you may refer to my initial safe settings below and adjust them by yourself. there are still rooms to undervolt, but it is suggested you do it bit by bit, and one by one and test the new voltage before next
