DOWNLOAD KERNEL ZIP
Kernel Flasher/FKM download configs: oos | custom
(No mirrors please)​


Setup and troubleshoot: To install just flash the zip on a stock setup with either TWRP or autoflash kernel app.
If you come from other kernel or have any issues, you should restore your stock boot.img/vendor_boot.img or dirty flash your ROM before flashing blu_spark zip to avoid problems. Also uninstall or clean data of any kernel control app you're using.
If you are upgrading between blu_spark versions, just flash the kernel zip.

About bugs and reports: 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 ROM with NO mods whatsoever (apart from root). That includes NO support if using xposed, Magisk with added modules, etc.
If you're using custom ROMs (including stock based ones) and OOS Open Betas you're much on your own. I'm mostly interested on debugging stuff in stock and stable OOS.
Also try not to spam the thread with OT. There's threads for all kind of stuff, use them.

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

blu_spark_r23 release

First blu_spark build for the OP9 series is up (y)

This kernel is tested for the 9 Pro but it's unified, so should work for the OP9 also (need some fixes since code is broken). So backup you boot if you want to test and let me know :)
Kernel already have some merged goodies and I think I have a good base to work with. For a couple days of work, it's not bad :)
I'll take a look into more stuff to come, some things in OP are WIP. Stay tuned!

You can use FKM download kernel feature, just import the links bellow in the app.
FKM download configs: oos


Changelog:
  • Build with Google Clang 12.0.5 + LLD linker
  • Synchronize codes for OnePlus 9/Pro Oxygen 11.2.6.6.LE25AA
  • Several build error fixes and quirks handled
  • Compilation improvements an cruf removed
  • Some goodies already merged like filesystem stuff, cpu governor & boost/msm perf, TCP algos, wakelock blocker, vibration and haptic feedback control, gpu adrenoboost, etc
  • All drivers builtin, wifi stack and datarmmnet merged from CAF
  • net/wireguard: merge v1.0.20210424


Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs (including OOS based ones).
I am mostly interested on debugging stuff in stock stable OOS (with logs and reproducible steps to replicate the issue).

@eng.stk I think the kernel has the same issue as Omega had, wireless charging seems to stop at 95%

Dumped out some logs if it will help

EDIT : OK, Apparently I'm talking crap, just seemed to be charging slowly but did get to 100%

    blu_spark_r145 release (A13 custom)

    New build is up (y)

    I tested with lineage-20.0-20230516-nightly, kernel build may work with other ROMs that use similar device/kernel trees (confirm before flashing).
    This is only for ROMS with A13 fw kernel patchset.
    This kernel is tested for the 9 Pro but it's unified, so should work for the OP9 also.

    For flashing and easy of install logging, Kernel Flasher is recommended
    You can use Kernel Flasher/FKM download kernel feature, just import the link bellow in the app updates/flash section.
    Download config: custom


    Changelog:
    • Merge lineage-20.0 from LineageOS/android_kernel_oneplus_sm8350
    • CAF updates
    • Merge ASB-2023-05-05
    • small rebase and tree cleanup
    • Anykernel3 updates (v20230509)
    • For root, Magisk 26.1 or newer is mandatory


    Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs besides LineageOS.
    I am mostly interested on debugging stuff with logs and reproducible steps to replicate the issue.

    @eng.stk would you consider supporting OverlayFS (https://github.com/HuskyDG/magic_overlayfs) ? I was using your kernel but had to stop because it doesn't support it, it makes a difference when it comes to being able to mount system partitions as RW. Hope you can consider it. Thanks!!!
    It's already there:

    Hows the battery life on the latest build ?
    latest kernel build. and current lineage 20230514-NIGHTLY-lemonade. works perfect. Battery is a dream come true. The linage AOD consumes a lot of battery. but you can easily turn it off. excellent blue_spark work as always. Big thanks to Mr. eng_stk

    Thank you so much for letting me know, I just flashed your kernel and OverlayFS is working perfect, I'm so glad I'm back to your kernel, my phone is so snappy as soon as I flash your kernel as always, thanks again!!!

    [Thread Cleaned]

    Good (or perhaps not so good?) day everyone! I've removed a few posts but left the ones that matter: civilized closure of conflict – social media can learn a thing or two from this. As we sit behind our desks and in our couches (or on a plane, even that's a thing nowadays), protected by that anonymity shield, we easily throw our words out into the world. And sometimes we regret them. Unfortunately, we find it so easy to judge one another for that. But facing the fact that we're all just humans that make mistakes, I believe we know that we shouldn't judge so quickly. Now more than ever; kindness should prevail.

    Thank you for your attention and have an energetic day or quiet night in your part of the world. If you need a chat, drop me a line. Just keep our development threads focused on development and mutual respect.

    Cheers!
