Hi guys,
I decided to make custom kernel because our friend @chhapil has stopped his work on MoStock and every LP ROM have performance and battery issue. I knew nothing about developing kernel, so I learn about it. And finally, I managed to build my first custom kernel for LP.
In first release, I will adopt some features from MoStock (I'm still learning :D). Of course I will add some features apart from MoStock.




DISCLAIMER:
This is the FIRST custom kernel for Lenovo A6000/Plus Lollipop ROM (64bit and 32bit). Not tested on Lenovo A6000 (32bit ROM). Don't flash it to 32-bit ROM.
Tested on CM12.1 based ROM (CM12.1 and MOKEE with wt86518 code), stock LP ROM (32 bit)
I'm not responsible for bricked devices or flashing wrong version
You are using this kernel at your own responsibility

Works great but

As you said in the previous post to use kernel auditor
Actually I'm already using it...Just made a few changes
Alucard Hotplug- Enabled
CPU Governor- OndemandPlus
I didn't change anything else
About the Battery backup i don't figure out any difference but the standby time just sucks
Before installing the kernel it was way better i guess
It just drops from 50% to 30% in 6 hrs approx which was better before(like 5-7% of battery gives 6hrs of standby time)
And the onscreen time i was getting about 7hrs 30min(approx)with cynogen kernel(stock cm)...i think onscreen time on this kernel is not that good bcoz battery drops from 100-50% in 3 hrs 30min(approx) which is a lil bit low
If you can increase the standby time and add DoubeTapto wakeup feature then it'll be awesome
Btw any suggestions to make everything balanced like performance and battery backup?
I'm using Lenovo A6000 Plus with CM 12.1(Enhanced version from Techolite)
Thanks and really appreciate your work :eek: :)

Thanks man.. Finaly custom kernel for Lolipop..But will it work on stock lolipop 5.0.2? I want try on a6000plus stock lolipop rom ..thanks

No, it will not. don't try it on stock LP.

Yes me too!!
Maybe AW can provide a stock LP version as custom LP has some bugs.

At first I want to create custom kernel based on stock kernel. But stock kernel is incomplete. yes, it's complete for 32-bit, but not for 64-bit (configuration files are not complete).

Wow thank man for your great feedback. :good:
Based on your screenshot, your device still awake all the time. that's why your device never go to deep-sleep state. it will drain your battery even your device screen is off.
Have you wiped you dalvik-cache?
I don't face your issue, I use Mokee by JAV-Team.

I wiped dalvik cache and is there any fix for that? :confused:

Btw have a look at my benchmark :D

hey,i already flashed your kernel,i am using cm12.1 by satgass,i used minimul adb fastboot to flash kernel(adb fastboot flash boot your kernel*img,i didnt replace ramdisk or anything i have a knowledge about that mean a little,am i flashed correctly??and do i haved to extract boot.img and replace anything,,,,if yes means just tell me,,,,,,,waiting for ur reply dude:D:eek::(

---------- Post added at 03:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:06 PM ----------

guide how to install it,i have installed it but need to check whether am correctly installeed or screwed up.so write small description guys,i used fastboot flash boot kernel*img,i am using cm12.1 by satgass guys,,

yes, your steps are correct. can it boot up?

1. adb reboot bootloader
2. For temporary flash, fastboot boot kernel*.img. The phone will reboot automatically, so wait.
3. For permanent flash, fastboot flash boot kernel*.img. After that type, fastboot reboot.
4. verify kernel: adb shell cat /proc/version. or you can see at settings-about phone.

    Thanks again...want to see if performance is better than custom on 32 bit

    I'm using stock LP 32bit now after try a lot of custom ROM.
    I think stock LP is the most stable ROM (but I don't like the interface :D)

    Spoiler:
    I have compiled new kernel. add new hotplug driver, playing with the configuration, add some tweak. the result is smooth,better battery life and temp is decreased.
    I think it's more stable and best for daily use.

    I will try to reinstall ROM again with this kernel and try all of your ideas. Thanks! :D
    don't forget to :rolleyes: replace ramdisk and dt.img by these steps :
    1.Download bootimg.exe. thanks to cofface
    2. Make 2 folder, sourceKernel and sourceRamdisk
    3. Copy bootimg.exe to both folders.
    4. Copy TeLo kernel to sourceKernel folder and rename it to boot.img
    5. Copy your boot.img file from your custom rom to sourceRamdisk and make sure it has boot.img name
    6. Open CMD and enter to sourceKernel folder. type "bootimg --unpack-bootimg" (without quotes). Close CMD
    7. Open CMD and enter to sourceRamdisk folder. type "bootimg --unpack-bootimg" (without quotes). Close CMD
    8. Copy file kernel and dt_image from sourceKernel. Paste both files to sourceRamdisk folder (overwrite).
    9. Open CMD and enter to sourceRamdisk folder. type "bootimg --repack-bootimg" (without quotes). close CMD
    10. Flash boot-new.img
    thanx Ms.AW :good:
    Wifi enabler follow this way
    1.replace pronto_wlan.ko from stock rom to /system/lib/modules/ and rename to wlan.ko
    2.for automatically load wifi module download extract and replace file *01wlanon* to /system/etc/init.d/
    3.reboot and will be work :cool:
    5
    Thank you. I haven't find how to change the RAMdisk. Could you provide some instructions, please? I am going to test the kernel on ED300's pure CM12.1. 32 bit ROM. Thanx in advance.

    How do I get boot.img having zImage? Should I use mkbootimg, and if so, how should look this command?

    1. Download bootimg.exe. thanks to cofface
    2. Make 2 folder, sourceKernel and sourceRamdisk
    3. Copy bootimg.exe to both folders.
    4. Copy TeLo kernel to sourceKernel folder and rename it to boot.img
    5. Copy your boot.img file from your custom rom to sourceRamdisk and make sure it has boot.img name
    6. Open CMD and enter to sourceKernel folder. type "bootimg --unpack-bootimg" (without quotes). Close CMD
    7. Open CMD and enter to sourceRamdisk folder. type "bootimg --unpack-bootimg" (without quotes). Close CMD
    8. Copy file kernel and dt_image from sourceKernel. Paste both files to sourceRamdisk folder (overwrite).
    9. Open CMD and enter to sourceRamdisk folder. type "bootimg --repack-bootimg" (without quotes). close CMD
    10. Flash boot-new.img

    I'm developing easy tool for these steps. It called ERASER (Easy RAmdisk SwitchER).
