Please read the instructions and notes before flashing anything. Don't ask me if you don't read the instructions.
Please respect and try to help each other. You may face sometimes that I cannot answer your questions/or answer your questions a bit later. I am busy with my work and don't have enough time to read and answer all your questions at the same time.

Thank You! Amazing Work!
All works fine on my G8341!


Finally! Will download and try your kernel tomorrow!
Is it needed to flash SuperSU, or is this kernel pre-rooted through Magisk?

I had to patch the boot.img manually with magisk and then flash with it via TWRP.
Now Magisk SafetyNet and Xposed are working like a charm!

How-to do this? This is my first Android device after being away from the OS for 1,5-2 years, so I am basically a newbie from scratch on the more "advanced" stuff.. ?

Want to help me out?

Sure ;)

Your Bootloader is unlocked and TWRP is installed?

Then just download the the Zip from the first post for your device and extract the boot.img
Download and install Magisk Manager.

When you now open open Magisk Manager on your Smartphone, you will be asked to install the latest Magisk.zip. Now press patch boot image and navigate to the extracted boot.img.

When the progress is finished boot into TWRP press install, select install img (bottom of the screen), navigate to the patched boot.img (internal memory/Magisk Manager) and press install.

After installation you can reboot and now Magisk should be working

Ramdisk is already patched. No need to patch it again. Flash the zip from first thread and then flash the latest magisk. Done

Xposed is also working..no issue (unofficial build)

It shouldn't effect your camera. Did you flash anything else maybe?

I flashed part-1 of the previous drm fix. That could be the problem.
When i get home I will flash .34 to start over and check if this fixes the problem

Or does anybody know how to change back to the original secd

Does this kernel work with the DRM fix? What I mean is, can we flash the kernel, then flash the DRM fix and flash Magisk so we can have both the DRM fix for the camera and Magisk for root?

The whole meaning for this is that you don't need the DRM fix with this kernel. So flashing this kernel and magisk you shuld be good to go.

Edit: Camera doesn't seem te work. I misread in the title that it said DRM fix but is dm fix...

I'm going the new firmware now then this kernel and Magisk to test.
Fingers crossed ?

---------- Post added at 11:42 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:47 AM ----------

Ok so I upgraded the OS to 12.34 then reflashed TWRP latest from modpunk then rebooted to recovery and flashed the kernel and Magisk and I got a bootloop so....
I reflashed again with newflasher, TWRP, reboot to recovery, flash the kernel then this time I rebooted to system and again back into recovery then I flashed Magisk and it all booted fine, but here's the problem.....
The camera doesn't work. It has no DRM fix so all the pictures are that horrible green square.
Should I flash the DRM fix separately or what?

---------- Post added at 11:52 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:42 AM ----------

So I decided to boot into recovery again and flash 2 of the 3 DRM fix files (the DRM fix and Ricoff) and they flashed fine, then I rebooted and tested the camera and it just hangs even I try to take a picture.
Does anybody have any ideas what we can do to have the DRM fix working alongside Magisk?

Thank you very much, @janjan for your effort.
There seems to be a difference in the DRM handling between XZ1 and XZ1Compact, resulting in a non-working camera on the XZ1 even if it works on the Compact.
It is really nice of you to compile this kernel for our device, but unfortunatly it doesn´t really work all the way

I just found out some issue with G8342-Dual. It seems G8341 and G8342 are used two different deconfig for building Kernel. I am going to fix it now. I will try to look at DRM soon.

So don't flash G8342 boot.img yet. Going to remove the link.
