I didn't mean to be rude at all. Last time I checked on this thread @flar2 hadn't updated to 12 with the DPs and was blind building. Those blind builds weren't working. I haven't visited this thread since March

EDIT: My next post might be rude, but to and for another user/member. I'm taking a couple of deep breaths thinking if I should respond.
EDIT #2 (on this new post); I didn't mean to quote myself.

I understand, my friend, trust me, I do. And please don't feel I attacked, you or anyone. My post was just a general, friendly reminder that the Developers are the bloodline of XDA, and they must be protected at all costs. These amazing developers also provide this work freely. As you know Flar2 is quite an amazing guy. He clearly has a lot going on, and with Android 12 coming around the corner it's absolutely understandable for him to be on it, preparing. But, we must also remember that devices are needed for development. He needs time to roll back to Android 11, as stated, to figure out what's going wrong.
He also just released quite an impressive application that is more than clear MUCH thought and time was put into this, absolutely, stunning UI, and design. (Seriously bro, amazing work. Thank you for sharing).

It's only been 2 days since his post. Real life happens. Issues come up. Asking for updates is something, as I stated, find, especially as a retired RD, to just be rude. We're all entitled to our thoughts, however.

Love to all,
Andy

I can't agree more with everything you've said here.

I'm actually using the kernel for the Pixel 4a 5g. I'm writing this here, because there is no thread for that device, but it uses the same kernel.
I see you have fiops as the default scheduler, but when the phone boots, exkm reports it's on cfq. Looking a little deeper, it appears most filesystems are on fiops, except sda. sda appears to be on cfq still. I'm not sure if you are aware of this or not, but I would like to figure out how to fix this. As a workaround, I disabled cfq in defconfig to orevent it from being built and all fs now appear to be on fiops. But, at least for me, this isn't a very good answer but instead a bandaid. I would really like to figure out how to fix this moving forward and reintroduce cfq back in to the kernel. I would like to note, that when I mention all fs', I'm speaking of sd* fiesystems only. I know loop, ram, vold, etc does not use a scheduler.

Fantastic kernel. Thank you.
Do you suggest any setting on EXKM?
For example, my P5 suffer from battery drain when locked, can I do improvements using wakelock tab?

Tit for tat... Last build I ran, Sunday, doesn't boot. Kernel was broken with the june updates. Only way I was able to get it to boot was to reset back to may commits and the merge the june updates myself. Not sure what exactly when wrong, but I'm sure flar2 is working on it.

Significant update to EX Kernel Manager version 5.70. Now you can choose a directory for kernel downloads and backups. This will make it a lot easier to access your kernel backups and kernel downloads.

This required a lot of refactoring and new code, so let me know if there are problems.

And yes, I will get to the new kernel builds soon

I've spent many days trying to get a working kernel for Android 12 and June or later for Android 11 and I simply can't figure it out. I have no idea why my builds won't boot. Tried everything and I'm stumped.

If anyone knows the secret, please let me know. Otherwise, I can't spend any more time on it, I have too many other things to do.

Have you spoken with @tbalden or @kdrag0n they might be able to help you out

There are two things to try:

    It's incredible that still to this day only a tiny percentage of users have purchased my app. Missing out on so much over the years.

    The latest update of EX Kernel Manager adds backup and restore of dtbo.img

    I've also released kernel updates for the Pixel 3, 3a, 4, 4a, 4a 5G, 5, and OnePlus 6, 6T, 7, 7T, 7 Pro and Nord this month.

    So, if you want to support active kernel development, think about paying a few bucks for my app.
