Omega kernel development has now been discontinued for the OnePlus 6T.

Introduction

Hello everyone, this is my personal kernel for the OnePlus 6T, using it as my current daily driver.
My philosophy on the kernel is pretty simple, intended to replace the stock kernel, but with a lot of under-the-hood tweaks.

Hopefully you will all enjoy!

Important thread information!

I refuse to acknowledge/respond to bug reports that do not include clear steps to reproduce, a logcat, and a console ramoops (if random rebooting) or a dmesg (any other issues). Follow this guide to do this.
Keep things civil, no flaming in the forums!

Features

  • Up to date with OxygenOS 10 source
  • Compiled with Google's Clang 11 branch for maximum stability, with all warnings and errors fixed
  • Many tweaks under the hood for smoother UX, lower battery drain, etc.
  • Westwood as the default congestion algorithm
  • Hides bootloader unlock from SafetyNet
  • Available to flash with AnyKernel3

First of all,judging the battery performance just from 100-91% and being happy is similar to premature ejaculation.Because drain from 100-90s is never accurate.
Secondly,those stats are nothing worth bragging about since most other kernels(including stock) will give better battery.

Thanks for the honest feedback, though I don't appreciate the tone.

Though you are right in that I probably should have given a bit more context - on stock I usually got about 15-16% drain on similar conditions, as I have 3 Exchange accounts constantly syncing, a Gmail account, as well as Whatsapp.

Ok so how much did you pay him to develop this kernel? If you can't appreciate something given to you for free, then at least keep that dirty hole on your face to yourself and don't open it in public forums with that arrogant tone. Kids like you is the reason why we don't see much developers being active here.

You don't have to respond to such ignorant entitled kids. You're doing a wonderful job. I flashed your kernel and honestly surprised with the battery life too.

I mainly believe in having pure performance over much features so this kernel perfectly fits my needs. Keep up the good work!

Sadly we're in XDA were users these days won't respect the hard work of developers. I suggest OP to start a telegram group and put up a link here to stay in touch with actual interested users, like myself. Cheers.

lmao. the fail and ignorance in this comment is so staggering that I can't even think of a place to start. I am absolutely sure that you cannot, have not, and will not contribute anything to this community, outside of comments like this. its kids like you that are causing devs to leave xda entirely, for telegram, or wherever else. this once was a place where nonsense comments like this were mostly infrequent, and dealt with accordingly. now, sadly, this is what xda has become.

    Hi guys,

    As you know I've now moved on to the 8 Pro.
    Nonetheless, this kernel will be maintained!
    This means that
    - if there are any source updates from OnePlus, I will merge them in
    - as well as follow any Clang toolchain updates

    Take care,

    Kristof
