 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this Kernel

 * If you dont like this Kernel, Stay away from this thread!

What to say... I come from Samsung Galaxy Nexus and its development until the beginning of September 2016...
I did a one-year break from kernel programming, and I came back here for you. To bring you a good kernel for this device that still has a lot to give.
My work is on kernel source, I add, delete, modifing code, but with a criterion, that everything, must make sense


I consider the kernel as beta, although it is very stable, I will update the kernel when needed, with the necessary security patches, and a few extra grays

Android8.0
This kernel Boot on 8.0(lineage-buid) but I think also on AOSPExtended rom 8.0 it will Boot..

Android7.1
EDIT: Don't Boot.. thank's to @spookcity138 for news :)

Good download at all, and let me know your opinion :):)

Good evening,

at first I had the patched twrp from the LineageOS 15.0 thread installed and flashing your kernel it produced a fault 11 error. Then I flashed the official twrp and the installation on AOSPExtended 8.0 worked just fine.
Could you please elaborate a little bit more what you did to the kernel sources or if there is something special included? Nevertheless: Thank you for contributing!

Best regards

Hey,
Great to have another developer working on the S5 Mini! I can confirm that the kernel does not boot on 7.x ROMS (Slim7 at least,but I imagine all) I expected this though as my kernel build doesn't boot on Android 8. I can also confirm issues flashing with the Oreo compatible TWRP version. I just recently flashed a test build of TWRP by Ayke and got this same error 11,so I extracted the boot.img and flashed that. I also tried to flash my kernel after yours to get my system back up and also got an error flashing in TWRP,so something has changed there apparently.

Yep, with official twpr, flash without problem, this error 11 is related to the twpr for Oreo... however, I've add some commit on kernel source, and my work is this, add commit, and update the kernel ;)

@spookcity138 thank's for welcome :) However Thannk's again for feed on 7.x rom... this error is related at updater-script.. on Oreo the first line "assert" is not present, so cause this.. but with official twpr flash go fine, I think to change the updater-script if cause another problem :confused::confused:

I would't call this development or a kernel which offers something over the stock LOS kernel (that's the reason why no changes are mentioned in the OP - because there none). I only see 1 rename commit. So overall it doesn't change anything which deserves to call it 'your' kernel. This entire repo are upstream commits only. If you only provide such 'development' I highly suggest to work directly on the official kernel and submit pull request instead which then would help everyone and not only people which using this kernel here.

what changes did you want to find on the kernel? did you see the commit series I added? Do you think the changes are all in the name of who works on the kernel? for those who work on ROMs as @hennymcc or @spookcity138 or other's they can very well take my base and insert it to build the ROM..

I expect some changes which improving the kernel e.g. in performance otherwise I stick with the LOS kernel because you 'commit series' I found so far are years old now and pointless in Oreo. I'm not sure what's the point to create an thread when there are seriously no changes, I not deny that you might work on it but that should be mentioned as 'work in process' or something here but since there is no changelog, downloadable release or explanation on this kernel I think I have the right to ask what's going on here.

And just because someone else might contribute to your project doesn't mean this is relevant, as said I checked it and there was no change. I haven't chedckd all branches but master and the asop-8.0 branch was not really what I expected to see when someone announce a kernel. As said earlier I think it would be better to contribute to LOS directly instead of making another kernel.

Please explain or show why someone should use your kernel or in other words - what's wrong with the LOS one?! Thanks.

What you saw, that you think is old, are needed on Nougat as well, because interfaces better the kernel, with the modules, because our kernel don't have support on kernel Device Three.. and it's just the beginning of this, because my main job will be to reformulate the theard for a rom. Nothing to take away from the kernel LOS, and I did not want to create useless controversies. if you do not want to use this kernel, it does not change anything. however if you look good on the download section, find the zip package to download.
