  • Vibrator Strength tunable and Gesture Haptic Feedback control (touchpanel and FPR)

DOWNLOAD KERNEL ZIP
FKM download configs: oos | custom
Extras download location
(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 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 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.

All right crew!

First build of you favourite kernel for OnePlus devices is up :highfive:
Go get it peeps :good:

We have a nice baseline to work with, almost 80% of the usual goodies are merged in :victory:
More stuff to come on the upcoming builds, stay tuned!

blu_spark_r3-oos_op6_272f0a3.zip

  • Initial build with Linaro 4.9-2017.01 (blu_naro-7.3 soon)
  • Synchronize codes for OxygenOS 5.1.3
  • Lot's of goodies merged in, just check the OP and github
  • Use AnyKernel2 installer(thanks to @osm0sis)

Keep it real, keep it true, keep it blu :highfive:


Keep in mind: I will give no active support for custom ROMs (including OOS based ones).
Meaning, if using anything besides stock and stable OOS don't bother posting about it.
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.

This is amazing! I used to religiously use your kernel during the nexus 5 times. There was a "xda hiatus" since I changed to S7 Edge.

Now, I am back with OP6 and seeing your kernel again on this forum is just amazing! ;)
