Well, it seems like most of the games that I am trying to play is force closing, I'm currently using LOS 15.1 ROM. Oh, I haven't tried yet without overclocking.

Download link isnt working.. can anybody please help me???

:confused::confused:
These boot images should work on any LOS-based or CAF-source based ROMs (in theory).

Yes, the boot image should work on LOS-based ROMs (RR, DotOS, etc). There is no guarantee, but in most cases it'll work fine.

No.

Hello! Uhm, I don't know if it's just me who's experiencing it, but I can't access the download links? I mean, when I go to the download page, it shows an error 404, not found. tried using another IP address but it still showed the error on the download site.

The links are generated on a timer. The process usually takes less than a minute, repeated every 15 minutes. You probably clicked the link exactly when it was regenerating the structure.

flashed the latest version of the kernel (180904) on LineageOS 15.1 (190101) on G530H (XCU) and it works fine
though I don't really notice the performance boost but, yeah... CPU-Z says it's now 1.6 GHz which is 400 MHz faster than the base clock

anyway, @vince2678, how about increasing more the cpu clock by maybe 50-100 MHz?

New kernel builds are up for all devices.


Changelog (16/01/2019 - 17/01/2019)
================================

- New cpu frequency scaling governors have been added
- There is now support for CPU voltage control (using Kernel Adiutor)

The cpu voltage feature is risky by nature, so take care not to raise or lower the voltage by large increments and/or saving
without testing the voltage change first.

    Instructions

    If you are completely new to flashing custom ROMs and have no idea how to begin, start by downloading a TWRP image for your device from the links above and flash it using the ODIN tool (see below).

    You cannot flash a custom ROM over stock recovery, so downloading a custom recovery is the first thing you will need to do.

    Installation via recovery (TWRP)
    * Download a recent .tar file from the links above for your device.

    * Reboot into recovery mode [Press Power+Volume Up+Home].

    * Plug in your phone into your computer, extract the tar file and place the .img to a location on your Internal or External Storage on a device.

    * Click Install on TWRP on your phone and locate the img file in the phone.

    * Enjoy your kernel.

    Installation via odin
    * Download a recent .tar file from the links above for your device.

    * Reboot into ODIN mode [Press Power+Volume Down+Home].

    * Plug in your phone into your computer, and open the Odin application, and place the .tar file in the AP slot and flash it.

    * Enjoy your kernel
    FAQ

    Q: Are you taking device requests?
    A: If and only if the device is using an msm8916 chip, and you're willing to buy me/donate the device for testing, sure.

    Q: But I don't have that kind of money! What else?
    A: Alternatively, if you're skilled with Linux and adb, and have an unsupported device, if you're willing to work with me as a tester, that works as well.

    Q: Are you accepting feature requests?
    A: Unless you're willing to implement it yourself, no.

    Q: Can you make XXX ROM as well as LOS?
    A: Unless more people donate, no. I simply don't have the time to maintain more than LOS nor money to hold that many ROMs on my already (tiny) struggling server.

    Q: Can I throw money at you?
    A: Most certainly. Donations are always welcome.

    You want to help?

    • We need hardware power to get the builds done.
      If you want to help us go faster, send a PM to @kentone or
      @vince2678. Your computer will act as a client for our jenkins server.

    • In a perfect world, that would be all, but unfortunately no. We need money to keep the server running and keep bringing these ROMs.
    • As always, logcat any problem you find.

    apparently we were abandoned... :'(

    No one has abandoned anything. We're working on bringing in the best performance in the next update, so it will take time and testing.

    Maybe stupid question
    But if CPU overclocked to 1612
    It won't be damaged or something
    I mean why Samsung didn't make GP stock CPU like this ??

    Sorry if its stupid question
    But if it won't damage the phone CPU
    The performance will increased as hell

    I've been using it myself for about a month with no adverse effects.

    I chose 1612Mhz because it's fast enough without risking instability. At higher frequencies the memory might not be able to keep up with the cpu/gpu clock, so I have not gone higher than that (though they may work).
