Question for you. How do you get the monthly updates from TMO with an unlocked bootloader?

I still want to unlock mine and flash a custom kernel, I just haven't hung committed yet.
They still come in as normal. One thing though, you would have to restore your original boot.img, through Magisk in order for the download and the installation to work. No issues along the way once you do that and follow the steps to retain root after boot. 😁

I actually wasn't going to root, was just going to unlock bootloader to flash a new kernel and stay stuck other than that.

Sorry to butt in but i would suggest to flash EU or Global rom instead. Faster updates, and non of the tmobile/sprint bloats.

This better then....I been tweaking kernels since Shamu, tested, for reventech, apophis, maddy and several others.View attachment 5377347
Well I don't know if this is real... I actually doubt it, especially since you are not sharing details how you'd achieve these figures.
Restricting some apps (without actually naming a single one) surely doesn't improve battery live by at least 400%...

I would love to, but I don't have access to a PC. I have a Mac, and am not totally comfortable flashing all of that over. Worried about bricking my phone and warranty not covering it.

I used to flash roms and such on my pixel phones, so I'm semi comfortable with that stuff.

i don't know why it's so bad.... First day with this kernel at 70% i have 2.5h of sot now with 24min of cod mobile and 20min of Whatsapp/Instagram 75%. Anyone has an idea? I have throttling enable and I do apps optimization.

    New kernel release!

    Changelog:
    - Pulled in patch from Google to make cpufreq stat collection less CPU-hungry (smoothness)
    - Pulled in 3 Clang/LLVM stability fixes from upstream Linux
    - Pulled in a patch for better power consumption when vibrations are enabled (from arter's source)

    While this kernel works on latest 11.2.9.9, please note that OnePlus hasn't released sources yet for 11.2.9.9.

    Enjoy!

    Working great on the newest oxygen.

    But we can still use the kernel with the new update right?
    No problem here....

    It is interesting that peeps will dog a kernel after so many heap praises on it. My first reaction is they have some off the wall apps running. Funny thing, for those that come from other phones there is a tendency to your apps work. In my opinion, batt apps, optimizier apps, green apps - are all nonsense. Take up space and CPU. My batt life with this kernel is awesome, but I am not a power user. Still, I get great response and the
    UI is snappy.
    Basically, what I am saying is look at what you have running before crying. FFSS.
    Thanks

    So something happened recently that caused my phone throw itself into a borderline bootloop with this kernel. Wifi is totally trashed and rebooting takes AGES. only flashing back to stock kernel remedies this.

    Introduction

    Hello everyone, this is my personal kernel for the OnePlus 9 Pro.
    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 11 source
    • Compiled with Google's Clang toolchain for maximum stability, with all warnings and errors fixed
    • Compiled with Clang's cortex-a55 optimizations
    • Many tweaks under the hood for smoother UX, lower battery drain, etc.
    • Westwood as the default congestion algorithm (BBR is also available)
    • Available to flash with AnyKernel3

    New kernel release!

    This is a huge one in terms of stability and smoothness.

    - Wireguard added
    - Anykernel 3 updated
    - Critical and stability fixes from CAF
    - More code fixes based on GCC's diagnostics
    - Significant improvement to ZRAM speed

    Enjoy!

    New kernel release!

    The test team has been crazy busy, flashing sometimes 5 builds a day to pressure test, and come up with this new kernel.
    After tons of performance tests, we found that Clang (with the included optimizations) outperforms even the best GCC builds, so I'm now moving to using Clang by Google to compile the kernel.

    Changelog:
    - Fixed major network error where userspace was trying to modify network settings but the kernel wasn't allowing it (this issue is also present on stock kernel)
    - Pulled in a fix from CAF to improve/lower battery drain
    - Updated Wireguard module to latest version
    - Built using Google's latest Clang (12.0.6)
    - Enabled all Clang internal optimizations (reverted a crazy CAF patch disabling them), and fixed all subsequent code errors
    - Fixed an IRQ saving issue found via lockdep (upstream)

    Enjoy!
