Are you saying there is a 3.04 version of this kernel? Where did you find that?

EDIT: Got it. There is a newer version of this kernel available for download via the EX Kernel Manager app available from the playstore

Are you guys updating through the app? It should work on any ROM version

I Installed for the first time today using the app and am finding that double tap to wake is not doing anything for me. The dashboard says that it's enabled. What could be going wrong?

I tried version 3 DTAA but didnt boot does it support f2fs, i think this kernel doesnt worth the money also no updates anymore

there are updates from the EX kernel manager apps, version 3.05. and yes you have to pay the apps for using the latest kernel because the latest version only available on the apps itself.

for the performance i think it's quite good. but so much battery draining even on underclocked one

The idea is that older version didnt boot at all what about the latest one and does it support f2fs or no im using s9+

Hi 👋

Still working perfectly with latest FTJ2 update.
I'm using Alexis Rom 1.9.


But you must download the kernel by app, only there is available version 3.04 which I use.
Hello friend, DO i you need to delete the temperature control file? In addition, I am los17.1 9810. Is this kernel suitable for me?

Can someone give me cpu frequencies and some other settings in version 3.05 to improve battery life?
I couldn't found any recommendations in this thread except post #426 but this looks a bit low in frequencies in my opinion?
Can i try all cpu frequencies or do i have to consider anything?
Thanks :)

Can anyone confirm if 3.05 works with FTL version?

According to the app, it is for FTK1.

Moreover, how is battery drain?
I'm more than happy with stock kernel on ALEXNDR ROM.

Hi I got S9 Plus basically this is scv39 a Japanese model, S9+ and I was able to flash this TWRP twrp-3.5.0_9-0-star2qltechn.img.tar now I can boot into TWRP but I dont know which rom I can try on it? when I just try to flash Magisk it stuck in bootloop on stock firmware, I looked around and I didn't find any rom/support this model.

Am I missing something?

hello. I was using this kernel downloaded via play store (elemental x kernel manager). I want to use overclocked kernel. However, my screen is broke and i cant view screen when using recovery (aroma), but touchscreen is work. Can developer provide me kernel with overclock and maybe bypass cpu restriction (so i can use max cpu freq on big cluster on 4 cpu) without using aroma? it will very helpful and i will donate. I intended to use this device as PC dex mode. I use small fan and heatsink attached to device so phone temperature is managed. Thankyou and sorry for my bad english

    1. Flash in TWRP recovery or flash directly in EX Kernel Manager


    EX Kernel Manager can be used to configure settings and update or install the kernel quickly and easily.

    Knox status will be set to 0x1 by flashing this (but you probably already tripped it by installing TWRP). Tripping Knox means no Samsung Pay and Secure Folder. If these are important to you, then you can't mod your device.

    Everything else works.

    Some notes about settings
    Sweep2wake/Doubletap2wake/Sweep2sleep: these can be set on the Gestures screen in EX Kernel Manager. I strongly recommend sweep up 2 wake over any other gestures. It is most reliable, less prone to accidental wakes and should not interfere with anything (i.e. phone calls). Wake gestures do not cause battery drain on this device.

    CPU frequencies: Samsung has limited the big cluster frequencies when two or more cores are in use. The stock default is 2700MHz for one CPU, 2314MHz for two CPUs, and 1794MHz for three or four CPUs. If you choose the overclocking option during install, these frequencies are increased.

    Overclocking: The overclocking option will run the big cluster up to 2886MHz and little to 2002MHz, plus it has an additional boost to multicore performance. You benchmarks will be way higher, unless thermal throttling kicks in. EX Kernel Manager will allow you to set the big cluster frequency properly and will show the actual max freq in most circumstances (sometimes it shows less when the big cluster is being throttled for thermal reasons). Don't use other kernel apps, they won't work properly. Don't complain about reboots if you choose this option.

    Color control: I've added an override so that you can adjust red, green and blue by a much larger range than in Samsung's settings. The way this works is any adjustment in EX Kernel Manager will override the Samsung system settings. If you want to go back to using system settings, restore red, green and blue to defaults (255 each) and the system settings will take over again.

    GPU frequencies: I have also updated EX Kernel Manager to allow adjustment of GPU frequencies on this device.

    Blocking wakelocks: If you want to block wakelocks (and it looks like blocking some wifi wakelocks could improve battery life), go to the Miscellaneous screen in EX Kernel Manager and select block wakelocks. You will have the option of blocking any kernel wakelock on that screen, and it will show the time each has been active. I don't know what most of them do, so they might not all be safe to disable. Experiment and provide feedback here for other users.

    selinux is enforcing!

    -release for Android 9 (Pie)
    The update is coming. I've been using my S9 a lot lately for some major updates to Button Mapper.

    It takes a more work to update samsung kernels, because I have to diff the new source and create a patch, and I have to download the new system image, which takes hours on my slow internet. I wish Samsung would use a git repo.


    -CSG8 update

    Sorry, the updater and boot.img didn't update properly in 2.07

    Flash directly and control all your settings with EX Kernel Manager:
