@acuicultor thank u for this kernel. It's running great on 8T and Crdroid rom. To get more battery juice, do u suggest to disable gpu boost and touchboost?
Only if you want a laggy system, keep in mind that normally the most battery offenders are user installed apps, you should keep an eye on those instead on any kernel.

I disable boosts with no side effects but as the dev said, he only uses OOS and not custom so maybe in this sense, try it yourself. Also, the qhd+ is all ROMs. You can't lower the resolution unless its an OOS rom
Link i always get 7-8h+ sot withmedium usage(mostly media consuming) on 120hz qhd+. On 1080p it goes upto 10h. Did not disable any boost or something, enabled dynamic fsync, set gpu to 920mhz and adreno boost set to low. Only thing i did is undervolt each gpu clocks.

After having the phone turned on for 3-4 days, little cores gets stuck at 1700mhz. This doesn't happen on other kernels, removed all modules and still the same. This wasn't in previous update. I'm on latest oos global version.

One wierd thing is i don't notice any impact on battery life and there is no heating.

Checked if it's cpu-z issue, little core speeds are the same in fkm and exkm.

Hi, I'm planning to install radioactive kernel onto my 8 Pro. I'm running CrDroid 7.12 (A11), it is amazing and I know to flash the custom variant. My main question is: I was wondering if I would have to reflash my ROM if I want to go back to the stock CrDroid kernel. Couldn't I restore a .img file backup of the stock kernel?

You must restore boot.img, dtb and dtbo.img to roll back to your previous kernel.
So no need to reflash the ROM? Just restore boot.img, dtb and dtbo.img.

Update: I've flash the kernel and the options in settings for 120Hz and 60Hz are gone. Now it just uses 120Hz by default... Is this supposed to happen?

Yes that's what i said and idk anything about custom rom settings, custom rom variant have no support from me, if something is not working in a particular rom you're on your own.

    On OOS? I've heard a few users who had this issue on 8pro with certain custom Roms. But I've never encountered it on the 8t. Were you coming from another kernel? If so, it's possible that you need to dirty flash the Rom in order to restore everything. Some kernels make changes to dtbo and other things, so unless you have a back up of those, I'd try a dirty flash of OOS zip using local upgrade, then after that flash the kernel again. I would think that would solve the issue
    i'm actually on Havoc OS sadly I first flashed Havoc 4.10 and tried RA kernel 2.3.0. that's where I first encountered the problem. And then in 4.11 and 4.12 with v2.3.1. My 8T works well with other custom rom based kernels like Meteoric. But on blu spark and ra kernel, the wifi issue is present.

    Thank you for your feedback! I guess i'll just wait for a12 on Havoc.

    The OOS version is 11.0.10.10. The device is OnePlus 8 PRO
    You're probably going to have to look into kdragons safetynet fix.Or one of the other fixes floating around. Google has made some changes that make passing safetynet on a rooted/unlocked device unlikely without one of these fixes. I'm guessing even if you were on stock kernel that you won't pass safetynet without one of these.i can't really point you in the right direction since I'm currently on a custom Rom that passes safetynet out of the box

    Should just be able to flash it in any kernel manager app. It definitely works fine on that version of OOS.
    Thanks, i was successful in flashing via Franco kernel manager

    My OP 8pro running stock 11.0.9.9.IN.11.AA.
    flash lastest kernel via exkm, working fine but losing VoLTE.
    Any advice here?
    Well the dev will say nothing is wrong with his kernel on OOS. Its perfect and their will never be any bugs because he and his testers test it on OOS

    True, but I was trying to help. And I was a tester for a very long time on this kernel. True, I have an 8t but I've tested the kernel on several different versions of OOS, Havoc, and Nameless. I was just trying to see if there's anything I can do to help
    Appreciated. But I think its specific to 8 pro custom roms

    [ 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!!!

    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!!

    From now onwards Custom variant can be flashed on Android12 roms although no support from me will be given if you face any problems, i only support oos variant because it's the rom i'm using. Hope you understand.
    Like always download link and detailed changelog in op.

    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!!!!!
