Back again!

You may remember me from my SkyDragon roms/kernels and HolyDragon kernels for OP7/OP6/6T/OP3/N6/M8/M7/G3 among other devices. This is the latest sdmmagpie kernel+audio source from Google. No plans for any overclocking cpu/gpu that slowly kill your phone. No plans to upstream anything as most of the time there's either no benefit at all or it performs worse than stock. (If it was worth it, Google would have done so already). My only goal, as always, is to get the best performance *and* battery life out of our phone as possible. Kernel zip uses Anykernel3 by Osm0sis to install so no fear of losing root or ramdisk changes or anything.

Alright all, I just need some testers to flash with me and verify we're all good. As far as I can tell, everything works fine. Audio/wifi/bt/gps/etc. all work fine. Just need more people than myself to verify stability and such and we'll move from D.V.(Development Version) to R.V.(Release Version) kernel.

After that I'll work on additional fixes, tweaks, and features. Thanks and please report any findings here :good:
 
Good to see you and HD around again. It's been since 6T Pie for me. Got my sunfish and already in the lab with some bringups as well. Let's connect and I'll run this and share my other findings as well. (Sidenote: Just scored a 9713 PC Mark first run on stockish 200805.003 , Fajita was barely capable of pulling that consistently)

Of course this can go without saying but does not boot on Android 11 beta.... I know, just wanted to try, guess I'll flash A10 firmware so I can run this kernel.

Alright everyone, kernel is just about done and ready for full release. Just want a few more people to verify this one for me.

Far as I can tell we've been 100% stable with zero issues this entire time anyways.

For the R.P.1.1 I've fixed most all the issues in the kernel, set it to performance with full LTO enabled, and have added the usual features and fixes I do on most all my kernels. This runs totally different than the D.V.1.0 release so if you tried that and were disappointed, try this one and see what you think. Will give it a day or two and if all good like I suspect, we'll go to full on Stable release.

Alright, I think we're good enough for a full on release here. Everything works and works well. No issues or errors reported. Enjoy and let me know if you come across anything, thanks!

Appreciative.
Could you share your kcal settings.
Thank you

Happy to help.

For the P4a I only adjusted RGB and Saturation values. Out of the box the screen was a bit too warm for me. This is not a perfect Pantone color calibration, which is often quite flat. This is just what I like for average viewing accuracy. Ymmv, as it seems Pixel phones are not all the same.

I wasn't sure what kernel app you use, since my adjustments were simple, I'll just share a screenshot.

    Alright, February kernel is posted, enjoy!
    Merged in Google Upstream, looks like a single change in kgsl and some more wlan driver updates. Also updated to latest Wireguard.

    Man I don't like this new forum.

    Anyways, sorry for the delay. Kernel v5.0 is up and posted!

    Changelog:
    Merged all updates from google. January had a bunch of wifi driver updates so I got those in, seeing noticeably better battery on this release. Enjoy!

    Thank you! - i am using EXKM / is that franco kernel manager ?

    Yes.
    And of course since I went and checked my settings I started manipulating and playing around with it again! Haha
    I like these better:
