Thank you very much for the reply :)
Regarding the conf part can you tell me where I can get this file, i can only see the kernel itself, and should i do that before or after flashing the latest version of the kernel?

Thanks
No matter when you do it, you can import the link before or after flashing, the configuration file link is in the opening post, choose the right one regarding the ROM you're using, you must copy the link and paste it at fkm in flasher tab.

I'll not give active support for custom roms, if it works for you is ok if not i will not do anything more than what i already did, there's a bunch of different custom roms with different device tree implementations and can't adapt the kernel for every available rom out there. I'm using oos and is the rom where i test myself and can give active support.

How to turn off zram in this kernel? I tried with Ex Kernel Manager, but it turns on again after reboot...
That's completely normal because it's recreated in every reboot, you should set on boot the option to disable it and set at least 60 seconds after boot to your changes to apply and don't gets overwritten by the system.
Btw my advice is to keep it enabled because we're not on 2014 where zram was experimental and battery hunger, nowadays it's faster and doesn't consume battery life at all, also OxigenOS expect it to be enabled and disabling it is counterproductive.

Hi i want to use this custom kernel, but i wanted to know if it will work with Oxygens Os 11.0.8.8.in21ba?
Even tho i've already flashed custom kernel on others devices, it is my first time on a OnePlus, is there a big risk to flash it with Francos kernel manager? And if i want to roll back to the stock kernel, i just flash the rom again right?

Thank you. I read that too that its better to turn on zram in OOS. Now I'm on EvolutionX and many say that it's better to turn it off there. I will try that for some time and see if it gives any benefits.

Works fine on latest update. Also you can restore stock kernel by reflashing ROM, or you can just back up the stock kernel in FKM before you flash Radioactive. Either way is fine. If you reflash the ROM, don't forget to take steps to keep root

Okay thanks you very much for the info! Really appreciate it! ^^
Also what is the battery life compared to the stock kernel?

For me, active drain is better on Radioactive than stock. I have an 8t on OOS. Active drain on stock was about 10-12% an hour on stock, and is about 7-9% per hour on RA. Keep in my that everyone's results will vary though, based on usage, signal strength etc etc

    Use fkm, exkm or similar app to grab system logcat and dmesg after the problem occurs but keep in mind that I'll not try to "fix" something that is happening just on a certain rom and not on the majority of them and also it can be user related rather than rom/kernel issue.
    It happened again this morning, after a night in flight mode. WiFi wouldn't turn on. Interestingly, it came back after a few minutes.

    Attached the logs, hope these are useful.

    Thank you very much😊

    New build is up!!!

    Long list of changes in this build, i recommend to take a look at github for details, added some i/o schedulers, TCP congestion algorithms and sys entries for game switch (check init.radioactive.sh file in kernel zip for this) also raised gpu default frequency up to 670MHz and other stuff that you can see in github.

    Hope everyone is fine and healthy, take care and enjoy the new release!!

    OOS 11 8T, Latest stable. Want to report a bug: kills music while listening through tws. Music stops and can't be even continued. Tried to reflash. No modifications from my side
    I use my wireless buds every day for several hours without any problems.

    Is there any way to set the GPU max freq back to 900mhz? My 8T used to run fine with 920mhz on the modded 2.2.5 build and got ~700k on antutu.
    Use any kernel tweaker app and set it to 900MHz or remove the 670MHz related line at init.radioactive.sh into kernel zip.

    [ 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!!!

    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.

    Enjoy!!!!!
