how can I go back to stock kernel?
I, too, would love to hear from anyone who has used both. I think people in this thread *may* be biased towards Omega though
I have used both, here are my views!
And with the Omega Kernel, the device does not warm up when browsing, YouTube, etc.??I have used both, here are my views!
BLU SPARK - FLawless, but slightly gets warm during normal usage (browsing, Spotify, and youtube videos (WIFI) ); Gaming experience - Top notch!
Omega - Best for day-to-day activities! It's buttery smooth with 0 hiccups! But if you consider gaming, Blu spark has a slight advantge but I'm not sure about the technical aspects! No heating issues in omega kernal
I did a 2-hour google meet session (HOST)
Battery lost with blu spark - 35% (40 deg Celcius)
Battery lost with omega - 33% (38 deg celcius)
Asphalt 9 with blu spark 30mins of gaming and room temp - 31 degree
Battery lost with blu spark - 12% (44 deg Celcius)
Battery lost with omega - 11% (41 deg celcius)
Day to day usage and SOT
Blu spark - Getting around 5 - 5.30 hours of SOT (Always 120Hz turned on by AutoHz App / 1440p with adaptive 1080p option enabled) - 16 Hour battery backup
Omega - Getting around 6 - 6.30 hours of SOT (Always 120Hz turned on by AutoHz App / 1440p with adaptive 1080p option enabled) - 1 Day battery backup
For some weird reason, I was getting Gmail notifications using blu spark kernal, but my notifications were missed when I was using omega kernal.
Hope this provides some insight!
Your banking apps are going to detect the unlocked bootloader that you need to install this kernel, I would've thought
You need root and magisk for hide the banking apps or Netflix etc to the unlocked bootloader. Once installed magisk in magisk hide select all the apps give u the problem, force stop them and that's all.
I believe it is hardware related. I have watched the kernel log and it's recognising a single press as two. So while it's in all likelihood caused by hardware, it can be masked by software by just ignoring button events that are unreasonably close.I have had same issues recently. I dont think its kernel related but hw related. At first my suspect was my case but after removing it I noticed that power button it self is very sensitive, mushy and not clicky at all as it was when new. Vol buttons are still clicky as ever before. Support told me to visit service center AND didnt know if warranty covers it. And i am not too keen atm to drive 200km together just to find out
Just wondering if new device as this is, starts already give hw issues something as simple as power button, how its gonna hold up in a long run? Not very happy about this at all!
It has definitely helped with my OnePlus 9. It'd overheat just using WhatsApp, YouTube or browsing with chrome or edge. I haven't overheated once since installing Omega kernel
