(No mirrors please)​


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 -> if you want root flash SuperSU or Magisk (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.

Your favorite kernel for Oneplus devices is here :victory:
I merged in OOS 9.0.4 source drop, so I decided to push OP6/6Tunified beta build (untested, don't have 6T device atm).
Just got on 6T :)

If you're brave enough, details and downloads here (backup your boot.img so you can go back to stock):

Best op6 kernel is already available for 6t
Bam! Always on the #fastlane

There is not even a TWRP to flash the kernel and you already made the kernel. Nice work :good: :highfive:
Indeed xD You can try to temp fastboot boot my blu_twrp, maybe it will work.

@eng.stk: Thank you buddy for your continued support, we are proud to have you on the developer team ;)
I am suppose to get a device within next 48 hours so i will flash and report.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the kind words my friend. Wouldn't be as much without your support :)
Yeah test it out and let me know!

TWRP works but decryption does not, regardless of whether screen lock is disabled or not.

I want to try this kernel but a bit too risky at the mo as we have no way to restore a backup and there are no factory images available as yet.

Oh i see. It is risky no doubt but I am sure it wont be long before working TWRP will be out. Fingers crossed

@eng.stk: Look what's Rocking my Fajita :laugh:
Kernel boots fine, everything works, nothing broken. Used Enchilada 9.86 TWRP, boots fine but has decryption issues so had to sideload the kernel. Thank you once again for your continued support and i look forward to a fully compatible TWRP :highfive:

Finally rooted and Blusparked my 6T through adb sideload on temporary recovery :laugh:

Device definitely feels more fluid and responsive as expected. The customised vibration is a wonderful addition.

Thanks eng.stk, great work as always

    OK guys, Oneplus kindly sent me a 6T, I can now test stuff properly and support the device officially.
    Stay tuned :highfive:

    blu_spark extras 3.2.3-1 (Pie only)

    All right crew!

    Here's the modded TWRP I'm using on the OP6T. It's not the usual ground up build I usually push out (see why here), but a mod from official one.
    This may change in the future, we'll see.

    There's a fastboot bootable img and a zip installer.
    Delete your twrp settings or else issues may arise if coming from other version besides blu_spark.


    twrp-3.2.3-1_blu_spark_op6t.img
    twrp-3.2.3-1_blu_spark_op6t.zip

    • build: mod based from TWRP 3.2.3-1 official
    • Fixed notch blu_spark theme like on OP6
    • blu_spark kernel inside
    • some misc fixes/improvements that don't need full rebuild
    • Improved installer




    Wakelock blocker info and example script


    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

    Also don't go spam and bug reporting on ROM threads if using this.
