    Flash and be happy out of the box!
    The kernel provides 4 Spectrum profiles and 3 Franco Kernel Manager profiles for most usecases. Balanced / Battery / Performance (default) / Gaming. For choosing another profile as Balanced please install Spectrum from the Google PlayStore.
    If you want to modify the profiles just run a kernelmanager like EX Kernelmanager and change what you want.

    The Android 10 version comes with autoinstalling Magisk module and autoinstalling config app made by Senior member xXx and Senior member tanisch2k09!
    To preconfigure the kernel uses a config file made by well known Senior member @xXx
    Many thx to both for this oustanding contribution to this project!!!
    The Android 10 version supports Magisk 20.3 or higher only!

    These are the tunables you could modify:

    Profiles battery, balanced, [performance], gaming
    SELinux [permissive] / enforced

For custom changes please edit the SmurfKernelConfigurationEditor by @tanish2k09. The settings are applied saving the config. Your actual configuration is written to smurf.kernel.bootlog.

    On Gdrive in the test folder an Android11 testbuild. Blund build, may boot, may not boot [emoji16] feedback appreciated.
    For about a week, maybe two, or three i have to suspend the development. Because of the unacceptable display i'll return my device to OnePlus. As often as needed to receive a device with a proper display. Even over the day it has noticible gray and color issues. Depending of dc-dimmimg is on or off left or right side looks like crap. Not premium.
    Just compare yourself. The nice 9ne is the OnePlus 7 Pro. All shots are from yesterday, same room, same light conditions, both displays same settings.
    The thread moved to cross platform, because of there are versions for both OnePlus 8, the Pro and the normal variant.

    Thx to Oswald Boelcke for pointing me on it and doing the work to realize it.
    I'm waiting for you support OOS11 with hope . Thank you :)
