  • Compatible with Kernel Adiutor and others

DOWNLOAD KERNEL ZIP and RECOVERY (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.
Builds for OP3/3T are unified (so can be flashed in both devices).

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 (systemless in case of Nougat). Oreo builds touch system partition.
You can backup your boot & system (Oreo) with TWRP before flashing blu_spark if you want to go back to full stock or just dirty flash your full ROM.

Nice to see you here @eng.stk

Haven't seen you around since you left the Nexus 6 - always liked your kernels and I bet I'll love it here too!

Yeah thing swill take some time, new arch for me, lot's of stuff to deal with.

I've used blu_sp★rk since OPX and don't need Dash so... I've got r17 running fine on OxygenOS 3.1.3
I only used DASH once to test it out.
Hope OP releases the source soon, it's OP2 fingerprint sensor bs all over again.
Thanks for the "case" btw ;)

@eng.stk yes!!!!!you are here!!!!I was in love with your kernel......happy to see you there.......yesss!!! :D

I've been around developing for other 2 or 3 devices ;)

I know it's not supported but for anyone on CM13 I gave it a go. On the A3000 I didn't have WiFi or 3g/4g. Just thought I'd let anyone considering testing it what I found.

    [KERNEL] [blu_spark r201 unified OP3/3T] [OOS 4.5.* / Oreo OB / custom ROMs]

    Currently working with topjohnwu to bring Magisk support to Oreo [emoji4]

    Touchscreen FW update Magisk module

    As you know, OnePlus improved the touch responsiveness in OB 13/4.
    New touch FW really drops the latency, it's a nice pair to blu_spark :)

    So I decided to do yet another Magisk module, so you can so you can test this enhancements in any ROM, systemlessly.
    Just import the zip in Magisk module manager and reboot to profit :highfive:
    ps: this is not a firmware/radio/bootloader zip update, but a fw binary file from the OB13/4 ROM for the TP controller driver.

    v1.1: improve custom ROM support

    I'm just sharing my personal mods since people asked, meaning no support will be given (don't bother post about it).
