Thanks for an update
I'll report you soon with Performance and Battery Life :good:

Guys show some love to this project too !!
Let's help developers to bring new things to us !!
Otherwise we will again see loss of developers from condor community
I'm just saying that .. we shouldn't let devs condor community :laugh: we can support them by giving feedbacks and contributions
Cheers

Hey @ABSathe. been using latest version for a day.
I observed battery life improvement compared to earlier builds.
Performance is simply great ! I'm getting a very fluid user experience.
The only thing which is not great is battery . You can improve it yet. Maybe you should add custom hotplug such as intelliplug for improving it. (Not sure though , just a wild guess. ) You are the developer.

I am getting awesome standby time though... Only 1% lost overnight in 8hrs when everything like WiFi data and location was off. Where on normal cm14.1 kernel almost 8-9% used to be lost.

rm -rf xda
@ABSathe Use report button and move this thread in original android development,Kernel&Roms like Aosp,Cm should be in original development as i read about this in xda---

Take a example of clarity kernel--its in origin na?
I hope this will help you to make xda better place by following rules

    Hello XDA Members,
    I am here with my new kernel. This kernel works on Android 7.x based ROMs

    Standard disclaimer :
    Code:
    This product is distributed free of cost and does not come with a warranty. I will not be responsible for anything that may happen to your phone as a result of flashing this kernel. You have been warned !If you come to me saying that this turned my phone into nuclear bomb , I will surely laugh at you !!!
    Introduction :
    Photon is a fundamental particle of nature which delivers light to us all. It's mindboggling properties like duality, never stopping from being in motion and presence in so many diverse natural phenomena like photoelectric effect, relativity etc. makes the man ultra-curious about it. A photon is born when atoms transition from excited state to ground state. What's the point of this paragraph in a kernel description post?

    Well, like a photon this kernel possess duality. How? By giving better battery back up and performance. ( :p ) What about non-resting nature of photons? Yes, the kernel support will never stop until Nougat says good bye. ( :p ). OK now don't ask about analogies regarding photoelectric effect and relativity. ( : D ).

    Anyways, now coming to the point I am very much glad to present you, the users of condor, my tiny piece of work for our small beast, .
    “The Photon Kernel“
    I got very much fascinated by the concept of photons when I studied it for the first time and hence (yes, you've guessed it right!) I've named this kernel Photon.

    Enough of the physics class today let's look inside the features of the kernel now ( xD ) :

    Features :
    1)Compiled with UBER toolchain 4.9
    2)Used -O3 and graaphite optimisation flag
    3)Added few more governers to stock ones. List of all governers :
    1. Impulse
    2. Ondemand
    3. Ondemandplus
    4. Powersave
    5. Performance
    6. Interactive
    7. Userspace
    8. Smartmax
    9. Lionheart
    10. Nightmare
    4)More I/O schedulers.List of all I/O schedulers :
    • noop
    • deadline
    • row
    • cfq
    • flops
    • tripndroid
    • sio
    • sioplus
    • vr
    • zen
    • bfq
    5)Enable Arch Power
    6)Disable Gentle Fair Sleepers

    So that’s all for the features as of now. More features will be added in future.
    This kernel serves me good for daily use and allowes me to use those governers flawlessly.

    To-do list :
    1)Add more governers(No more governers planned)
    2)Add dt2w feature
    (DT2W and intelliplug update is ready but I want everything to be nice and shining before adding them )

    Special thanks to : @Vikrant Desai (For writing OP) @neonkat(For helping me )

    Important Note :
    Please make sure that you are on a stock kernel that comes with your ROM before flashing this.
    If you flash this over another custom Kernel it may lead to unexpected issues


    I personally use this on AOSP OMS rom
