A simple kernel for the average user
This thread is for the TF300T version of the kernel. For the ME301T version, click here: GEASS for ME301T
GO TO THE SECOND POST FOR F2FS DOWNLOADS & INFO!
GEASS is aimed at a compromise between good battery life and high performance.
*Based off of CM kernel: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_asus_tf300t/tree/cm-11.0
*Overclock CPU to 1.7 GHz
*Overclock GPU up to 7xx MHz (I would recommend 650 max for stability)
*Adds SIO, V(R), Deadline, SIOplus, Zen I/O schedulers
*Adds Pegasusq, OndemandX, InteractiveX, Asswax, SmartassV2, Wheatley CPU governors
*Adds init.d support, insecure kernel
*Supports "adb reboot apx" to boot into APX mode
*TCP congestion control: cubic (recommended), westwood (recommended), vegas, veno, low priority, yeah, htcp, hstcp, hybla, scalable, illinois
*No need for ASUS performance profiles to set CPU speeds
*Compatible with TF201 on TF300T ROMs and 4.2 BL as well
*Compiled with Linaro 4.8.3 Toolchain optimized for Cortex A9s, which is found in Tegra 3

If you are using PacMan ROM please use the PAC compatible kernel download instead: Geass_Public7_PAC.zip
Recommended ROM: CyanogenMod; but works with all KitKat ROMs.
Enable performance settings in most ROMs: About device > tap build number until developer options are enabled. Go back to settings and find performance section.
Use Trickster Mod to take full advantage of this kernel.

*Public7 (#7): 7th public release (bug fixes, enable tcp congestion algos, merge in upstream changes from CM, frandom support if you wish to use it) *Public6 (#6): 6th public release (no more need for performance profiles, custom GPU overclocking (Go to specific section in trickstermod), cpu OC for TF201 (Prime)) *Public5 (#5): 5th public release (adds smartassv2 and wheatley cpu governor, adds apx reboot mode "adb reboot apx") *Public4 (#4): 4th public release (adds pegasusq cpu governor, adds dynamic fsync, adds zen and sioplus i/o schedulers, insecure kernel [ro.secure=0], "fix 32-bit overflow in get_monotonic_boottime") *Public3 (#3): 3rd public release (adds VR scheduler, enables deadline scheduler, fixes) *Public2 (#2): 2nd public release (adds interactivex, init.d support) *Public1 (#1): initial release (asswax, ondemandX, OC 1.7ghz, sio scheduler)
