I think that sentiment is a bit extreme, man. I also used to test Omega, and never took it to heart when things, as they do eventually, slowed down and eventually stopped for the 6t.

KTP is stability focused and doesn't tend to push release after release just for the sake of doing it. Omega is always a good stable kernel for that exact reason.

A guy that has a full time day job, who happens to understand more than most peeps about kernels, makes his own, then shares it with the community, gratis with no expectations is not on the hook to dash titty sprinkles on the kernel and re-release it constantly. If he was asking for $$ (which he does not) or something in return (which he does not) it would be different.

Of course, you can choose to not use Omega as well, if you feel there's something better or are super committed to the Cartman mantra of [screw you guys, I'm going home], that, much like installing Omega in the first place, is your choice.

Let's not act like the dev owes anyone anything, bc he doesn't owe us anything whatsoever. We are the privileged in the equation.

There has been no source update for the device since 11.2.8.8...
I'm waiting for updated sources, and dont want to break anything in the meantime.

im not sure. I USED TO BE PART OF TESTING for kristoff and hes ignored me for a while now. im okay with that,but,to ignore a community is pretty messed up. So be it. Oneplus is dead and i wont be sticking around either
OnePlus is dead because Omega kernel was last updated a month ago? Impeccable logic.

Sorry about my comment @kristofpetho . Your work is still amazing. I apologize to everyone here on the forum for my stupid comments. No more from me. Sorry and thank you
Good on you for stepping up with the apology dude! kristofpetho has created an amazing kernal and his contributions to our phone experience deserves our respect. I will add your testing to this comment as well.
Thanks Ace!

I just recently flashed this kernel again because I was running stock kernel but omega is really cpu hungry in your last update it said less cpu hungry while overnight it eats like 20% away when the screen is on you can spend like 5 to 6 hours on the screen but not even last a day on lock screen where you can spend like 2 or 3 tops then your phone dies

Stock kernel seems not to be cpu hungry

Recommend trying arter97 Kernel.
This one is so much better than Stock or Omaga. I finally get over 5 hours sot. Idle drain is not 3-5% anymore.

lol this kernel is anything but cpu hungry. once again need to point out that idle/active drain is directly related to what apps you use and how you use your phone, not the kernel, especially this one that is the polar opposite of cpu hungry

The kernel definitely has an influence on the active / idle drain. Since I've been using the arter97 kernel, both of these things have decreased for me. Otherwise I haven't changed anything.

I charge my phone to 100%, disconnect it at midnight, and go to bed. When I get up at 6 AM, it's still at 100%. You have too many apps working in the background. Or something.

    at first when I read your post I was thinking no way it's been abandoned, but then I looked at github and there has been no new commits since 9/17 (the last update he released) so I'm not sure now. perhaps he's just busy with other things? either way I hope it's not.

    Willing to bet if @kristofpetho was stopping, he would have said so. Sometimes, there isn't anything to update.
    I imagine until source is out for a12, there probably won't be any big changes needed. Only my guess, though. ;). Thank you for what you do @kristofpetho !!

    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

    Latest kernel release on GitHub

    Thanks where it's due

    @pyry666 for all his help getting me logs after logs after logs. Without him this wouldn't have been possible!
    @Burt Squirtz and @crashazz3 and @TheKnux for helping to test
    Kerneltoast for his extreme patience and guidance
    osm0sis (for AnyKernel3)
    @eng.stk for finding a way to have proper hardware detection working

    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!
    25
    New release!

    Changelog:
    - Build with Google's Clang 13.0.1, updated Binutils to 2.37
    - Pulled in 5 code fixes from CAF for display driver
    - Pulled in 2 logic fixes from CAF for display driver
    - Pulled in 3 various CAF stability fixes
    - Fixed a dmesg error message with a commit from upstream Linux
    - Removed all android_fs tracing from the ext4 and f2fs filesystem drivers
    24
    New kernel release!

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

    Changelog:
    - GCC LTO implemented
    - GCC O3 optimization (together with LTO results in significant improvement of hackbench scores)
    - 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!
