Warning: If you come from other kernel or have any issues, you should dirty flash your ROM before flashing blu_spark zip to avoid problems.
Reflash ROM -> flash TWRP --> reboot to recovery --> flash Magisk if you want (default, no plugins/modules) -> flash blu_spark.
If you are already rooted or upgrading between blu_spark versions, just flash the kernel zip. Also uninstall or clean data of any kernel control app you're using.

About bugs and troubleshoots: don't bother to post if a log isn't ready or without steps so the behavior can be replicated. I only active support stock OOS with NO mods whatsoever (apart from root). That includes NO support if using xposed, Magisk with modules, etc.
If you're using custom ROMs (including OOS based ones) or Open Betas you're on your own. I'm only interested on debugging stuff in stock and stable OOS.
Save the SOT and battery stats/screenshots for general threads, here we deal with development, not personal tastes and results.
Also don't spam this thread with CM or other ROMs stuff like "this don't work, my app doesn't open, etc" , no OT about OTAs, apps, ROM bugs, Recovery/TWRP troubleshoots and other userspace stuff. There's threads for it, use them.

Going back to stock: This kernel installer doesn't change your filesystem. You can backup your boot.img with TWRP before flashing blu_spark if you want to go back to full stock or just dirty flash your full ROM.

blu_spark r7 release (unified)

All right crew!

First build is up :highfive:
OnePlus sent my 7 Pro developer unit yesterday (in all blu glory), today the fist victim is out ;p
This kernel is unified, should be good on OP7/Pro (I only can test on Pro).


blu_spark_r7 release

  • Synchronize codes for Oneplus 7 Pro Oxygen OS 9.5.8.GM21AA
  • Build with latest blu_gcc-9.1.0
  • Lot's of the usual goodies, too much stuff to changelog it (I would say we're at 50%, check git for details)
  • AnyKernel3 updates


Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs (including OOS based ones).
I am only interested on debugging stuff in stock and stable OOS (with logs and reproducible steps to replicate the issue).
Don't spam this thread with LOS or other ROMs stuff like "this don't work, my app doesn't open, etc" or debugging features.
Also don't go spam and bug reporting on ROM threads if using this.

Have you read of the sleep of death/deadlock issues on this device? If so, do you have any ideas for the source of the issue?

Hi. We were waiting for you and your work at this forum section. Thank you for providing support for allmost all oneplus line, used your kernel and twrp for more than 2 years.
CAF introduced 675 max gpu freq support for sm8150. Will you allow us to use it, but setting 585 as defualt? Less is more, i'm agree with you.
About deadlocks, someone calls it sleep of death, there is such problem. i faced it myself many times. As far as i can say, its faulty units problem. Replaced my unit and so far no deadlocks for 2 days already. With previous one i had it once in 3-6 hours.

Thanks and good to see you here, too! :)

Hell yeah... Nice to see u here!

Good to see you here man. I have used some of your kernels over the years. Will try this out.

Welcome to the OnePlus 7 Pro scene mate.
Oh yeah, ride on guys :highfive:


@eng.stk do you also plan to provide your famous blu_spark_twrp?
Maybe, not apriority for me at the time, lot's of work to on the kernel.
I honestly use less and less twrp this days, do everything from the ROM with autoflash apps.


Have you read of the sleep of death/deadlock issues on this device? If so, do you have any ideas for the source of the issue?
Hum, have no idea what's that...

Stuff is missing still, check git to see what's in (or ask us if you're after something in particular). The rest will come in time, can't do much more in less than a day ;p
Stuff in OP some are in, others are placeholder for what I intend to merge in.

Hum if it has CAF support I may look into it, no prob.
That issue seems nasty, is it a widespread thing? Never heard of it...


@eng.stk
Nice to see you here. Only now I can buy OP7 PRO and retire my OP6.

Thank you for your time and effort.

THIS!!!!!!! This is what I've been waiting for. Thank you @eng.stk. Couldn't be happier right now.

Nice to see you here, finally! Flashing.....
Thanks for the support peeps, you keep the spirit alive :highfive:

The OP is either a few year old copy paste and/or is providing the wrong information.

- ARM enhanced performance and battery patches - guess nobody has this since 3.18 kernels
- 300Hz - set to 100
- Klapse - not in source
- KGSL fixes and reworked GPU driver - Nothing has been reworked but using high prio
- Stock thermal driver by default - what else?
- adrenoboost... - not in source
- KCAL - Advanced color control for Qualcomm MDSS v2 (RGB calibration and post-processing features) - not in source
- Several CPU Governors (blu_schedutil modded governor available) - not in source
- CVE security patches, general upstream and CAF fixes - Nothing newer in source
- USB Fast Charge (USB mode up to 900mA with MTP on) - not in source

    blu_spark extras v9.103

    All right crew!

    Here's an updated TWRP with all the blu_spark goodies inside and fully synced with TWRP Android-9.0 branch (including more recent upstream than official TWRP) and some specific device fixes.

    Fully synced with TWRP 3.3.1+, name changing to reflect base 9.version, full compatible with Pie stuff.
    To use the img, fastboot boot the img and then install recovery from within TWRP (go to Advanced -> Install Recovery Ramdisk -> Select TWRP img). It will install to both slots.
    There's an all new blu_spark exclusive AK3 powered TWRP installer zip, flash as always.
    The TWRP is unified, good to go in 7/Pro variants supportes by the kernel.
    Delete your twrp settings or else issues may arise if coming from other version besides blu_spark.


    twrp-3.3.1-x_blu_spark_v9.103_op7x

    • build: TWRP 3.31-x | blu_spark v9.103 (with all cumulative updates from v101 and earlier)
    • manifest: android-9.0.0_r44
    • Several usual blu_spark goodies from fajita and whatnot
    • prebuilt: Add [email protected] for /sbin/keystore
    • Backup_Tar(): Properly localise string instead of using English.
    • fb2png: Fix compilation in android-9.0 repos.
    • Device specific changes here




    Wakelock blocker info and example script



    Awesome blu_spark boot animations Magisk module by @trapcoder666



    GCam mod fixes including aux mode Magisk module



    I'm just sharing my personal mods since people asked, meaning no support will be given (don't bother post about it).
    If your cat get's on fire you're on your own ;p
