huge kudos for posting it on the XDA. IIRC this kernel replaces fluttershy right?

been using this for around a week on crdroid 7.9 and i can say this is more optimized than the default perf kernel shipped with many ROMs. thankfully with the large availability of full customs on our device, it should be able to support a very wide margin.

during my weekish test of this kernel, ive noticed lower resource usage overall leading to better performance overall.

i dont use many of the advance features (wireless headsets ETC) nor play games so our mileage may vary greatly. but for using a phone as a phone, this kernel does a great job.

Hi
I am using Nusantara now and the magisk is also installed, do I have to reinstall the magisk after installing the kernel or is it not necessary?

no need to, the installer correctly identified magisk as installed and will auto patch things up by itself.

it has been reported to have deepsleep issues in the group, so it maight be a good idea to wait for the next release

    I don't wanna root my phone so can I skip installing Magisk? or is it compulsory for installing the custom kernel?
    id suggest not using it, support was dropped a while back
