I am NOT resposible for any damage done to your device, your neighbor, or any other things you like/hate.
This is my first kernel for any Android device. I created it because I want to get the best out of my device. It initially started with some optimizations regarding SaberMod 4.9 compatibility but I tought why not optimize it even more.
This Kernel is based on the official CM12 kernel, therefore it should work with any Rom using the stock CM kernel too (Like Carbon and Liquid). I run it together with Carbon here, all tests I do will also be done using Carbon. The Kernels features will get more with time
Features and Commit History:
Check 2nd Post!
THIS DOES ONLY WORK ON UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER!
When you're on CM/a CM based Rom:
Flash the zip file in recovery
When coming from Stock:
Flash the boot.img included in your ROMs zip file using fastboot. Flash a CM based Rom then and flash the Kernel zip file again as the Rom overrides the Kernel.
