What app is used in the screenshot?
That's FKM - Franco Kernel Manager, developed by the XDA legend that is @franciscofranco . It's exactly what the name implies...a kernel manager app, to change kernel settings like CPU/GPI clock speeds & governors, flash & swap between kernels, back them up, etc., along with giving you all sorts of system monitoring features. You can't go wrong with either app. They're especially necessary these days as we don't have a properly working TWRP recovery (at least on Android 11 with the OnePlus 8T), so it's absolutely needed to *easily* backup stock boot images and install custom kernels, without the need for a computer. At the risk of sounding like a fanboy or an ad, I'll say this - They're especially awesome because they now both support plugging in the links to a kernel's repository (or whatever you want to call it)...so if your custom kernel gets an update, you don't even have to download the update. You just go to the "Flasher" section, and it'll show you every kernel you have linked, what version & when it was last updated, & it'll allow you to flash it right there without having to even go download it...so you're able to get easily stay up to date. I have a screenshot of that section of the app attached here. There are tons of other features as well.
It serves the same purpose/has similar functions as EXKM - EX Kernel Manager (developed by the equally legendary @flar2 ). I don't think I should post Play Store links here, but if you're interested, they're very easily found with a quick search.

The long awaited update is here :D just flashed this on my 8t, though noticing the device seems to run hotter than normal during gaming sessions. Perhaps it has to do with the OC on the GPU?

If set to 800/900 then yes..
I turned my back to 670, i love the option to oc, but my device gets to hot at gaming with 900mhz, even tho it runs like butter on every option :D
Freaking love this kernel!

Just sharing my results yesterday on first cycle with results at 50%/ 15% / 5%.

Just been great. Been really struggling to hit 7 hrs and after flashing update I've gotten close to 9hrs SOT.

Which phone, and have you killed off any apps running in the background to see if one of them is the culprit? I wouldn't be surprised if an app is pegging it, not the kernel (in past years I've seen both Google Play Music and Allo do it badly). I'm sorry if this doesn't end up being much help.
I've been using this update for several days on an 8T with zero issues whatsoever (T-Mobile US but converted with EU firmware, if that matters).
You are maybe right. After a restart the frequency came down. This is my second cycle with 65watt original charger. Will ne sharing the stats. My first cycle was bad just 3 hours SOT i charged that with a xiaomi 33 watt charger. But my second cycle is really good so farScreenshot_20210420-001653.png

How is it possible to get different SoT when using a different charger? I'm charging my OP8 with Xiaomi 33W charger too, and I always get 3h SoT at the best

You don't say...? My phone is 3 weeks old and I don't understand where's the problem. I'm running the lastest EU OOS stable + RiCE + xXx + lastest RA kernel. I debloated a lot of unused apps and set all the apps I rarely use on "optimized", but I can't go beyond 4h SoT
I think a lot of gaming is included in your SOT. I have got around 7 SoT without gaming

How much SoT were you getting on Stock kernel. If it was 3 to 4 hours then something might be wrong with your battery or some app eating your battery. There are apps that shows these sort of things
Almost 2:30 SoT from 80% to 20%. While on RA about 3 hours on the same cycle. I used BBS and all partial wakelocks are all almost 0%; Battery Guru and I saw that no apps were draining battery in background. I had this problem also on my previous phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro) and I changed the phone thinking that its battery health was poor...

    Use propper way to ask me, that's why we have this wonderful forum, telegram is for personal use and i can't reply hundreds of questions every day with questions that are already answered here or can be easily answered with a simple Google search.

    Answering your question, i removed the less efficient frequencies and those that never should be used like lower than 691,that's already discussed here and answered by me.

    My guess would be dev left frequencies that are most efficient, and deleted others. Also underclocking can be unstable and does not offer much benefits. Just my guess

    I think you right. But I used RA on low freq and was really good. My battery life was Great. Now is not good like with one version early.
    I've used several kernels for the OP8, and haven't seen any benefits to using 300mhz. While voltage is slightly less, it doesn't seem to have enough computational power. So the phone will constantly ramp up/down even while untouched.

    If you have an Intel laptop you can try setting a low frequency like 100mhz in xtu or whatever, and you'll see why less isn't always better. Just trust the dev on this.

    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    */


    hi XDA community, i'm here to share with you my little project, my primary goal is to provide a stable and fast kernel without compromising battery life plus some cool features that i find useful for the day to day usage.

    Current Features
    General List:

    Compiled with self compiled custom clang 13 Toolchain with LLD
    Packed with Anykernel3 with ability to preserve magisk
    Works on OP8, OP8Pro and OP8T
    Support for FKM OTA kernel updates thanks to franciscofranco
    Boeffla's wakelock blocker
    Adrenoboost Driver
    BBR TCP set default
    Kcal Control: Colors, Saturation, Hue, Contrast and more
    Backlight min value configurable
    Enabled power efficient workingqueues
    Dynamic Fsync support
    GPU Overclock up to 900mhz
    Usb fast charge mode
    exfat fs support
    WIREGUARD support
    Removed a lot of debugging to gain performance
    Other stuff that is boring to write, take a look HERE for detailed information
    And much more to come....



    [ RADIOACTIVE KERNEL INSTALL ]

    DOWNLOAD KERNELS HERE

    First of all download the correct kernel zip for your rom (Use CUSTOM labeled for custom roms only)
    Make sure that if you coming from another custom kernel it don't modify any system files or dtb/dtbo, if it does you MUST reflash your rom before flashing this kernel, same goes if you want to roll back from here to your previous kernel

    Instructions using twrp:
    * Boot into Recovery
    * (Recommended) Make a backup of boot, system and data partitions
    * Flash Kernel Zip
    * Reboot system
    * (Optional) Install your preferred kernel tweaker app(EX kernel manager or Franco Kernel Managerer recomended)
    * Enjoy!!!



    Instructions using Ex kernel manager or any other app with autoflash support:
    * Flash Kernel Zip
    * Reboot
    * Enjoy!!!



    Instructions using Franco Kernel Manager:
    * Import configuration file link in flasher tab
    * Tap flash button and let the app do his magic
    * Enjoy!!!

    Thanks to all of you for your great work

    I also want to say thank you to my friends and testers and to those who donated me a beer or two;)

    Hi folks, long time no update but i think it worth the wait, fixed Wi-Fi issues on particular devices, removed undesired commits and cleaned up the source, merged latest oneplus source, added gpu oc up to 900 and overall improved stability, hope you enjoy it.
    Those using fkm update engine must re add the new configuration link in order to see the next update.

    Like always download link and detailed changelog in op.
