Shift Lollipop Kernel


This kernel supports only Lollipop AOSP. Should support all roms but not sure about Slim, if it doesn't work for a ROM please upload the boot.img from the ROM and post it here and I will see about adding support. Basically this kernel was developed only for CyanideL ROM but has progressed into a decent standalone kernel from reports as I do not own this device, so I thought I would just go ahead and share it so it was known and people could use it for other Lollipop Roms since I keep the source updated for the ROM I figured a kernel with some features and up to date source would be worth posting. Hopefully you all enjoy it

CPU GOVERNORS: smartass, smartassV2, ondemand, powersave, interactiveX, performance, userspace, zzmoove, wheatley and nightmare

Thanks. I have a microsd that may be of dubious quality. It works best as exfat. I've found I have to be really cautious with it. I'm pretty sure I didn't try it with cyanide.

Doesn't seem to support exfat, but it's nice and smooth on the official Slim weekly.

You need the kernel changer from the f2fs thread to allow ROM to boot

Shift 3.0 bootloops on CyanideL

I've been running CyanideL with the Shift kernel for a couple of months with no problems. The latest version (20150220) bootloops on me, though. I tried a dirty flash, then factory reset but either way it shows the Samsung flash screen, buzzes and then back. I tried flashing Shift 3.0 separately after this happened, as suggested by @TheGeekyNimrod, but that produced the same result. But then I flashed Shift 2.2 D2 over CyanideL-20150220, and now it's booting fine.
I tried to take a logcat while it was booting with adb logcat>logfile but I got the message -waiting for device- and nothing more. The logifle was empty. Is there another way to take a boottime logcat? My recovery is TWRP 2.8.4.0.
Thanks, @rogersb11, for all your work on this.

Yea this seems to be a very random issue. Geeky himself has this on a previous kernel I gave him. After failed boot you can boot straight to recovery and pull the last_kmsg. I can't remember exactly the command but a quick search will tell you. That's the kernel log

I tried this but there was no last_kmsg. I did get one from a successful boot with the 2.2-D2 kernel; that one said "no errors" at the bottom. But I guess it doesn't get far enough to even create the kmsg file with the 3.0 kernel. :( The last time I tried it stayed on the Samsung flash screen with the LED pulsing blue for about 10 minutes before I pulled the battery.

If it stays on the Samsung screen very long at all then it's just not gonna boot. Well that's unfortunate man, 3.0 is a massive improvement. Not sure how to help you since almost all haven't had this issue. Maybe next build will work for you. Not sure what else I will add but I'm sure I'll find something. Anybody have any requests?

You're awesome, I know I'll be happy when a new build comes out that works. Fiops please, and I don't know if f2fs support for sdcard would work but that seems like the best file format for an sdcard to me. :good:

Cool stuff, I flashed the newest twrp recovery and latest modem/baseband NJ1 using Exodus rom from team Vanir http://www.vanir-exodus.net/exodus/d2att/ shift kernel 2.2 works sortof, zzmoove hardlocks the phone and xposed alpha won't work[works on exo kernel]. 3.0 is broken for me still on a clean flash the splash loads this time then after a bit the screen goes black, oddly enough touching the power button causes a vibrate but other then that phone won't wake. Phone is unresponsive from pc side using adb logcat etc when on 3.0 so I don't know how I would report any bugs.

    Well I've got it running on cyanide, that's only thing I'll test on lol. I'm going to remove the OC since some seem to have trouble with it and then hopefully tonight I'll have time to setup the any kernel installer, test and upload. Fully merged and up to date with cm again as well so camera issues won't exist either

    Any interest in me making this work again? I have a d2 to play with for two weeks so let me know if so. If not I'm going to close this I think

    Hello I was wondering does this work with android 5.1

    Not yet. I have updated the kernel but have not built shift. Geeky will be building tomorrow I think with it inline and if it works then I will build it with the new linaro 4.9.3 I'm using now

    3.0 running great on Oct-L. Awesome work!
