On my N986B with N986BXXS1ATJA and Magisk 1.0.2 won't boot. I revert to 1.0.1
Interesting, for me it works just fine - also with ATJA and 1.02, on magisk 21005 (that's Canary)... Maybe it's me having done a factory reset due to other reasons....

Use Magisk 21.x. Because of the now included module and the need to do all stuff in the post-fs-data.sh (stuff in service.sh doesn't execute right on these crappy Samsung ROMs) Magisk 20.x doesn't work.

Works fine with 1.0.2 and 420-ROM .. i have only one problem i found... on my E-Banking Apps the Screen freezes and force a reboot when i launch them.. when i revert to the Kernel integrated in the 420-ROM it works just fine ... since i am no Pro on this i canot tell what the problem might be.. just my 2 cents :):good:

oh and by the way.. using Magisk 21.0 and Manager 8.0.2.. (hidden, renamed etc..)

Hi,
please let me know which kernel control app you are using / recomending to fine tune the kernel.

Best regards,
dingolino
You can actually use all available kernel managers. Because of issues with executing the service.sh script i use together with our SCE app i can not include it for now. Well as said, exkm, fkm, ...

tried the Kernel today on N986B with Dr.Ketan Rom and Android 10

Geekbench jumps to
Single Core411 -> 944
Multicore 1461 -> 2854

But on Compute from 4400 to 2772

And i tried Spectrum App - but Spectrum said the Kernel is not Supported

Dear Dev,

Is there any news about the compatibility of this kernel with Dr. Keaton's R01 Android 11 custom rom? I have been reading this thread since the beginning, and as far as I know you had been waiting the source codes of Android 11. Today, after waiting for months I will flash Doctor's rom and would like to use it with your Kernel.

Thanks

I tried Smurf Kernel 1.0.2
But the diffrence to the stock Kernel is not so much, espacily in graphic games.
So if the Game use the Vulkan Engine there is no diffrence.
I'm very dissapointed with the Note20 Ultra 5G - so much money and the frame rate dropped in games under 20fps

Here the 3DMark Bechmarks
Stock KernelSmurf Kernel 1.0.2
Sling Shot OpenGL ES 3.171218258
Sling Shot Extreme Open GL ES 3.164956772
Wildlife - Vulkan42164229

I'm running Dr.Ketans Rom on SM-980F/DS (Android 10)
N986BXXU1ATJ1
Kernel 4.19.87-19271186


Bottom line is - Vulkan Enginge runs badly on the Note20 On Genshin average of <20fps
With Open GL Engine even worse - the Phone runs with 60 fps. If you start a Game it drop to 30fps and at playing sometime under 10fps at only 50% GPU capacity

Just gonna leave this here. It s not with smurf kernel but just so u have an idea what s achievable.
Also..post your asv values - i have 654 (LITTLE,mid,big cores)
Remember this is for exynos variant ....so if you got exynos variant you cant have 654k antutu score ....dont lead the people in wrong way.... with the snapdragon variant this is possible but definitly not with exynos variant

It s exynos. N986B 256gb/12gb ram.
Mate i come from oneplus 8 pro which has a snapdragon 865 and we have there with smurfkernel 660k stable antutu score ....now you will tell me you have with exynos also round about 660k ????


sorry but I think you dream about that score on exynos 990 .....which has with stock kernel ~550K.....
