Any updates planned for the near future? Anyone else on stock ROM have the video camera problems I mentioned several posts back? I've tried everything I can think of but still have the same issue. Thanks.

I am able to record video on stock rom with my kernel...
Updates are indeed planned, but I am very busy with other matters at the moment.

Good to know. It must be the mods I have installed then...advanced reboot and black battery %. I will reset to stock and see if that helps. Thanks!

Flashed a factory image with a full wipe to revert back to pure stock. Then I flashed this kernel. My video camera issue still exists. Pressing record does nothing. Ideas?

I have nothing negative to say about this kernel. I haven't had any video issues either. Most of all, it is in fact stable. It can be frustrating when reboots lead to involuntary ticks. I have yet to experience it with Fugu. Great kernel, keep up the great work!

    FuguMod is a secure, open, reliable and no nonsense kernel

    This is probably the only custom kernel for the Nexus 5 which adds security instead of removing it.

    Current features are:
    - compiled with linaro gcc4.7.4
    - various small fixes

    You can download the kernels at:

    Source and changelog can be found here:

    IRC channel:
    irc.freenode.net #fugumod

    Kernel zips are intended to be flashed with CWM ot TWRP, if you want to flash using fastboot, you need to unpack the zip and flash the boot.img which is inside

    Kernels are based on the below version scheme
    20131104 is the date it has been packaged
    r1 is the release number
    4.4 is the ROM it is compatible with

    Stable vs Testing
    There are sometimes kernels in testing folder. These may be very stable or may not boot at all. Be sure to have an USB cable and fastboot under the hand if you try one of these. That said, in general, if they stay into testing folder for more than 15 min, they should at least boot and work more or less. I tend to remove non booting kernels from testing folder in less than 10 min (depending a little bit on the speed testers take them), and so if you see them one hour later, you should assume they are safe enough to flash.
    So, in general Stable is the safest bet, but Testing may be the best. I, myself, generally run testing one.

    Deprecated folder
    In general, unless you really know what you are doing, you should avoid flashing those, they are mainly there for historical reasons.

    Check for vulnerabilities

    Compatibility with hackish style apps
    All apps which require direct memory write, access to symbols or memory offsets or modules will NOT work. And, no, don't ask they won't be supported in the future. Example: Arararagi's light is only provided as a module and will not be supported unless he produces a patch.

    If you want good security when your phone is stolen, in addition to encryption, don't forget to turn debugging off. Also, use enpasschanger to change your encryption password, any short PIN encryption can be cracked in a few minutes easily (for example, using my script at http://pastebin.com/Mdu06RZN)

    As per GPL, you are authorized to redistribute this kernel with any of your custom ROMs provided you give out the source code like I do. You can link to my github in your distribution site.
    However, if you modify the kernel yourself, whatever the modification is (compiling it yourself with a different compiler is a modification), you are not authorized to name it FuguMod, although you can credit me and tell the base comes from FuguMod but you cannot call the kernel itself FuguMod.

    I have now received my N5. Real stuff will begin.
    hope to see something from you soon, AK!

    Im waiting to sell my n4 .... but for now im observing ....
    So I will take back development of this kernel again. It seems most of the features of grsec (which was available in testing version) makes this kernel really unstable.
    I will soon make a CM compatible version.
    I have promoted r35 as stable given that I did not succeed getting a crash since it's out.
