hi all

NOTE this is not a teaser, it may or may not happen



i have just started to take a look at this kernel and it looks like everything's working properly, except one claimed there are problems with the big cores' frequecy

i have contacted @freeza and he allowed me to make changes to the kernel and publish it if i want to (thanks again, freeza), and if my health conditions allow me to do so

so i will try to look at the above problem, and upgrade it to the latest one ui 2.5, and finally 3.x if possible. this is what i planned

however, funny enough, mine is still running stock pie and not yet rooted (😆 )! so even i have compiled his R154 successfully i cannot test it myself. what's more is that, i will upgrade to the latest version instead of th4 employed by R154 first since it's my dd thus i could not affort to put in it dev status too often

tbh, i was retired since mm and it's Q now so there are tons of changes and it takes time to learn and study the changes as well as to get my knowledges back, especially true for the changes in the rom and system itself (remember i am still a mm guy)

also, i am still struggling with how to root my note9 n960f and tab s6 due to different steps available, and i cant afford to brick any of my devices. i understand that i can root it simply with magisk to patch the boot.img, but from what i learned that's not enough for a custom kernel like the vbmeta thing (for my tab s6 with snapdragon soc, not rooted too) etc. so i will need some more times to digest and sort out all these things out

hope that i can make it soon without serious problems, and please dont blame me as i am a noob too after mm 😄

Maybe try this rom for your SM-N960F, I struggled for ages to root my Note 9 from Android 10 and even though I was told stock was too up to date to root, yet a user FerretallicA provided the solution, the rom doesn't initially allow the google services framework and has no google play store or ui 2,2.5,3 but has substitutes, worth a look given its privacy and security

thanks for your suggestion, mate

i will take a look at that, but i prefer to stay with sammy atm

thanks
 
Can i use this kernel on stock rom
Yes you can, but if may or may not work because it isn't updated, it depends on the stock version you are using.
This is an updated alternative
just choose ENFORCE
"ENFORCE is for stock oneui 2.X roms"

Is this new kernel has support for NetHunter? I saw a patch regarding NH it but don't know if supports wifi and bluetooth etc... Do you know?

I know that a user named S133PY made this

and on the latest preview release


it says this
  • Nethunter hid patch from S133PY

so my guess is that the old kernel changes(S13PY) were merged to the new. As for wifi and bluetooth, from the description on this thread
Features:
* Added all the Nethunter supported wifi adapter drivers.
* Premissive
* ALL the USB functions in Arsenal Settings added
so... it should work, only know by trying
