General [Kernel] StarKissed B2Q [Raccoon City]

Search This thread

I assumed, from how organized and thorough Samsung source is usually published, that I wouldn't need a driver that wasn't included. I guess it wouldn't hurt to include it. That and some Knox changes should get things sorted out. I also disabled a bit of log spam that I noticed that result from how modules are built for a custom kernel.

    i am not a lover of samsung phones as they are famous for poor battery life, but this flip3 fascinated me and i got it, already i am owner of a razr 5g whose battery is much better so i am so anxious and hoping to have a kernel soon and maybe in the future an aosp rom, i believe the battery life will improve for this flip3.

    It will be a while before any major improvement to battery life. Only one person is testing builds. It is a lot to ask of one person to keep flashing things and restoring, especially without any way to test them first.

    First version (kperfmon as module, not loaded)

    It's down to whether or not kperfmon is required. The build info for it says that in a build requiring it, it is already set to be inline. That should leave the option of not including it. There is also a slight chance that when it's built as a module, it is still expected to be present. Once that's sorted out, everything else should be good.

    In theory, it will work either way. It may just crash if the module is being silently required. I could always go with the sure thing and build it in, but it's typically a source of performance loss.

    No luck here again, stuck on the Samsung Galaxy screen upon re-booting. Then it reboots after about 5 minutes and stuck again.

    Ok, so kperfmon is required. If you have access to adb when it freezes,
    insmod /vendor/lib/modules/kperfmon.ko
    may be able to stop it from rebooting and kick it on

    This kernel is (currently still very) experimental. Use at your own risk.​


    This kernel assumes a few things about you, the user:

    1. You have a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
    2. You have read all warnings and instructions
    3. You are rooted (implying an unlocked bootloader)
    4. You have an installation method
    5. You have a backup boot image


    Releases will be labeled with the commit hash of their source. An unlocked device is recommended for this kernel, but not necessarily required. I am not responsible for any issues or damage caused by installing this kernel, so have a backup ready.




    All kernels are released with the possibility of not booting. This should be considered a WIP release. They are provided for review and testing of the included components.

    Thank you to everyone that has contributed to kernel development.
    Specific credit is provided by maintaining accurate commit history.
    Also, big thanks to @beanbean50 for testing the untested releases.

    Here's the install log if it's any help ...

    Thanks. I think the issue is a few drivers that didn't inline. They hid them all over and Samsung added fuel to the fire by making individual configuration files for each platform (despite being identical).

    I really want to try this but for the life of me I can't get any fastboot commands to work (waiting for any device) flashed every known usb/fastboot driver out there, changed ports/cables etc but no luck, ADB works fine. Is there a way to make it flashable through Magisk or Odin?

    I've been looking for how to convert it. I missed a couple changes, so I'm trying to wrap those up first.
