Kernel features:
  • Powered by Ubuntu 14.04.3 x86_64 (sparky VPS @ www.servercore.com.br - thanks @ChristianLetti)
  • Build with toolchain SaberMod eabi-4.9-09272015 cortex-a15 targeted
  • Full -O3 & graphite support with device and target flags enhanced, linaro build improvements, etc
  • Less is more: stockish builds based on android-msm-shamu-3.10-marshmallow
  • Kernel compressed with LZ4-r131, custom tweaked RAMdisk with GZIP (faster boot times, removed force encryption)
  • Removed some debug and logging options
  • Enhanced performance and battery patches
  • Several CPU Governors (blu_active own governor is default)
  • Voltage Control UV_mV_table
  • Enhanced TCP methods (westwood is default), Network and Wifi tweaks
  • Several I/O control (FIOPS is default), tweaked filesystems (F2FS, ExFAT, NTFS & CIFS available)
  • Disabled stock mpdecision and thermald, removed artificial throttles (core hotplug, frequency and battery)
  • blu_plug: Dynamic hotplug for shamu, with screenoff battery saving (max dual core @ max_freq 1190400)
  • msm_thermal simple driver (default 65º C threshold)
  • Optimized RWSEM, AES and SHA1 routines (with neon support)
  • Vibrator Strength tunable (75 level ~ 60 % default)
  • KGSL fixes and reworked GPU driver (removed doubled freqs, goes to idle @ 27MHz)
  • KCAL - Advanced color control for Qualcomm MDSS v3 (RGB calibration and post-processing features)
  • USB Fast Charge (USB mode up to 900mA with MTP mode on)
  • Kexec (multirom) full support
  • Disabled voltage, hotplug, frequency and temperature synthetic mitigations
  • USB automount (ROM must support it, otherwise use stickmount)
  • CDROM emulation added to mass_storage (full Drive Droid compatible)
  • init.d support (busybox run-parts required), Kernel cleaner script
  • Compatible with Kernel Adiutor, Universal Kernel Manage and others

DOWNLOAD KERNEL ZIP


Warning: If you come from other kernel, you should dirty flash your ROM before flashing blu_spark zip to avoid problems.
Reflash ROM -> flash SuperSU -> Boot device and install busybox -> flash blu_spark.
Also uninstall or clean data of any kernel control app you're using.

Root is now available in Marshmallow 6.0 in enforced mode thanks to chainfire.
In stock (or stock derived) ROMs follow the steps bellow. In pre rooted custom ROMs you should only need to flash blu_spark zip
  1. Just go to SuperSU thread and download the kernel zip http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/wip-android-6-0-marshmellow-t3219344
  2. Extract the boot.img (not a flashable zip)
  3. Go to recovery, flash boot.img, flash SuperSU v2.50+, flash blu_spark
  4. Profit

+1 Great question!

I pooped my pants once, it's a long story....

Thanks mate!!
It's force encryption disable?

Yes it is force disabled, I forgot to mention, already OP it.
I'm using encryption disabled on F2FS, it's amazing

Good to see all you guys here :)

Just flashed this bad boy, feels really snappy and smooth. Loving fiops! Obviously can't comment on battery yet. Keep up the great work!

Rui what's your opinion about shamu?

To get f2fs . I need to wipe data cache and dalvik to f2fs in recovery .
Right ?
Cache and Data: Beware you will loose al your scared content if you come from ext4, backup your stuff.

Rui what's your opinion about shamu?

Agree feels really smooth :)
So far I like. Its big but the quality of screen on surf and watching HD movies and such.
Also performance is amazing, specially with encryption off.
Battery is not that bad, on my daily task seems to last a little longer than hammerhead. During the night no t even 1% drop :)
The downsides I found so far: vibrator seems more loose and rattle a little.
The screnn colors are good, but it goes pink on low brightness. But this is not really an issue, I can't use so low brightness even at night, seems like minimum level of hammerhead with dimmer on 2: is just too low.

    blu_spark r26

    All right crew!

    New build is up, latest M3 stuff merged, some cleanup, etc.
    Seems like Google merged some power patches to deal with bug on battery measurement Solid on M, 5.1.1 needs testing.
    EDIT: just pushed r26 quickfix, seems like even with newest Smart Battery and Aging Detection commits, the gauge meter is still derped on M3 source.

    Wicked!

    New build is up, enjoy!

    • Build with SaberMod 4.9.4 arm-eabi cortex-a15_neon-vfpv4
    • Revert wifi driver to previous state (Google introduced some changes to N5 and N6 that derped the performance and stability in some situations)
    • Disabled bcl driver (voltage mitigations thresholds, thanks to @hellsgod)
    • Memory compaction and other miscellaneous patches
