Private Island.
I'm using fresh stock with v1.12
I noticed that it takes time to load internet from wifi. Like downloading apps, streaming videos....is working but it thinks too much to start it.
Besides that is smooth like Vaseline.

I don't mean to be dumb, but it's been a long time since I've done any of this. I saw the post about just patching the img with magisk then flashing it in a kernel manager. I want to make sure that's still whator all needs to be done.
There are zip files also. Do I have to patch that img also then put it back in the zip to keep root. Thank you

You just need to open ex kernel manager and use its function to flash kerenel file and then rebooting phone. That's it and ptetty simple.

Can we flash this kernel directly if coming from another kernel, or should we revert to factory boot img first then flash kernel?

Just curious if it's possible to add kcal. Not sure if that was dependent on snapdragon or not.
It is possible, but not easily. The usual KCAL implementation is on the display subsystem for QCOM.

You should be fine to just flash over. I would recommend removing any magisk modules that were installed by other kernels though such as the powerhint from Kirisakura.

Battery is looking pretty solid on the latest build, I will keep this current base for February likely. Update will be out likely on February 7th.

    Android 13 Beta 2 kernel is up on drive. Also have been making some changes to A12 kernels

    Mission:
    The purpose of this project is to increase efficiency of the Pixel 6 series devices by merging functional patches with minimal bloat.

    If you submit bug reports without a log, you may be prosecuted...or executed.

    Disclaimer:
    If your device fails to comply with your standards of what you consider functioning, I am not liable. This is provided free of charge and does not come with a warranty. Although, if you provide a log, I can provide some sort of assurance that I will look into your issue.

    Installation:
    To install kernel on a rooted device with EXKM/FKM


    - Download ZIP and flash using the manual flasher in the app

    To manually flash kernel updates

    -Download ZIP for kernel and the current boot.img
    -Use the below commands to flash from bootloader/fastboot
    -fastboot reboot fastboot
    -fastboot flash vendor_dlkm vendor_dlkm.img
    -fastboot reboot bootloader
    -fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
    -fastboot flash boot boot.img
    -fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img

    Can this be flashed over top of Kirisakura kernel, or does factory boot image need to be restored first?
    I'd take the safest approach and just flash back the stock images, and then flash the new kernel to avoid any potential mishaps.
    Yes..you can if you want..
    No need to restore stock images
    It works, because it will overwrite the same files which comes with Kiri. I went back to Kiri from despair without restoring stock files.

    actually @RetroTech07 is right here. You should restore stock images via fastboot/fastbootd to avoid issues.


    In the case of boot.img, dtbo.img and vendor_boot.img you probably can flash the kernel.zips over the other without running into any issue.

    But since vendor_dlkm.img gets flashed on this device as well and sits on the super partition, you want to flash back the stock vendor_dlkm.img via fastbootd (not via any kernel manager while the phone is running!). The reason for that: While flashing vendor_dlkm in fastbootd, the vendor_dlkm partition actually gets resized to their original size inside the super partition.
    While the device is running and either a kernel.zip containing a vendor_dlkm.img is flashed or a vendor_dlkm.img is restored via the option in EXKM/FKM app, vendor_dlkm.img is only dd´ed to the partition, essentially cutting a bit of the original size off, as the resizing part that´s happening when flashing via fastbootd is not happening there.

    It´s not a problem in itself, as all vendor_dlkm.img´s shipped by the custom kernels available are smaller than the vendor_dlkm from stock firmware is.
    However when hopping between kernels, I´d always restore the stock images via fastboot/fastbootd.

    Upon a bit of testing, I have decided to re-release 1.12 but based on January source. I am seeing a lot smoother/faster UX/UI on this build than 1.14 and 1.15
