I understand. May be it's time for me to change ROM.

What rom do you use?
I use stock LineageOS on my OP2 but I did use XenonHD, great ROM. I use Resurrection Remix on my Pixel as a daily driver and this ROM exceeds my standards by a mile, try them and there are many others available. It's preference but at this point most Nougat ROMs are pretty stable and good. As for him, he is the developer of HaruhiOS and I'm sure he uses it, give it a try too, a lot of people love it, much better than stock LineageOS!

If anyone wants to know what Magdalena means, google it. Its a song by one of my favorite bands, A Perfect Circle. I found it pretty good for a update name as this update is coming out around the time of my recent heartbreak. Plus its a cool name!

Here's a very stable test version of Steel, this version is way more focused on stability and I know that the CPU governor's are lacking but I'm looking for maybe 2 good ones to add. I'm not trying to make this kernel overbloated like it was before. :silly:

Oh yeah, and please PM me or post any suggestions for features! I might just reject or accept it in 5 minutes.

Update 2017-06-23:08 // Magdalena // 7.1.2 & 6.0.1

Its finally done and in very good condition! This is probably the best update so far despite its lack of governors. The Steel 7 folder is for 7.1.2 LineageOS based ROMs, Steel 6 is for 6.0.1 LineageOS based ROMs!
The reason I decided to build for an older Android version as well is because some people enjoy using Xposed and its not fair for them to be left behind in custom kernel support!
Both kernels are updated to the latest LineageOS 14.1 base with only the necessary modifications for the 6.0.1 kernel to work on its target Android version.
Ive tested both kernels on both operating systems and I can say they work just as expected, smoothly and without any bugs in sight! (so far) I hope people enjoy this update as much as I enjoyed making it.

    -STEEL 6/7 KERNEL-
    This is my kernel based on the LineageOS stock kernel! I try to keep it as optimized as possible while adding a few features here and there. Suggest or request features, I don't care as long as it's logical. I hope you like it! Everyone has a different taste though.

    -CREDITS-
    ZaneZam, Lord Boeffla, Yarpiin, anupritaisno1, Pranay Narang, FranciscoFranco, the XOS team, LineageOS, osm0sis, aviraxp and maybe a couple others, i'm sorry if I forgot someone!

    -FEATURES-
    • CPU underclock to 302mhz on big and little clusters.
    • GPU underclock to 27mhz.
    • GPU default governor is simple_ondemand.
    • Zram disabled.
    • CPU Governors: interactive, ondemand and performance.
    • Franco wakelock blocker.
    • SLIMbus overclock.
    • Fingerprint boost.
    • Kcal control.
    • Spectrum support with 4 preconfigured profiles.
    • Headphone audio boost.

    -DOWNLOADS-
    Google Drive

    -COMPATIBILITY-
    It is most compatible with LineageOS 14.1/13 and most ROMs based on it. It should work on AOSP/CAF ROMs but not all features are guaranteed.

    -BUILD INFO-
    I use UBERTC 4.9.4 and Kubuntu Linux 17.

    Version 2017-05-20:18!!!

    This update is such wow! Adreno idler has joined us finally, and despair has died due to death. I have changed the default GPU governor back to MSM Adreno TZ and tweaked it and Adreno idler for good battery and gaming. I have included a few patches that should make it a little more optimal if that's even possible, and fingerprint boost is now enabled by default at boot where it previously wasn't. Audio should be less of a hassle and should stutter less.. I hope. If anyone has any issues, please throw them my way and I'll see what I can do! As always, enjoy.
