any possible ways to have a better battery life. I choose the battery profile when i flashed but it drains so fast ?

...actually battery live is just excellent with UniKernel...

Try maybe BBS to detect the culprit.
The only problem with BBS is that it didn't show all our CPU frequencies ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=63143656&postcount=29485 ) but besides of that it works perfectly.
m.

can you at least tell me what i have to do because im not very familiar with the BBS, if you can that would be great, thank you very much !

Hi everyone. I just want to ask something.
What Im trying to do is just to root my SM-G920F without changing anything in the stock rom.
I only need the root access to remove the bloatware and stuff.

My question is that if I will flash the UniKernel v8-0002, will it change anything aside from rooting?

Im kind of worried especially for the battery life. I have read that if I will flash using Odin, the unikernel will just behave like stock.
Can anyone assure me please. :confused:

That`s correct! According this kernel please read the OP carefully, everything is explained there.
Of course, you will change the knox status, if you do not install the engineering boot loader first.

You reply fast...thank you so much.. I have read already, but I want is from the experience of the user. most of the things I have read in the pages is that either use the performance or battery friendly settings.

Also installing the engineering bootloader will make my finger print scanner not working right?

I don't use the fingerprint scanner but if I remember correctly, someone wrote that... .
If you do not choose any option in the aroma installer the kernel will be like stock.

Now I've to go, to party a little ;)

Thanks...there's no other option but to try I guess:eek:

One more question. If I will flash stock rom, will I regain my knox warranty?

BBS has a very nice and helpful thread. But to make it short, you definitely should have a look at partial wakelocks and processes... .
m.

so in this case the best solution is to reflash my phone with another sw, flash recovery flash kernel and then to see if it any better ? please correct me if i am wrong ?

Hi,
I only just got my S6 Edge and am coming from the S2 (which I still own and love :) ).
I was wondering if there is any way of simply rooting the phone (on stock rom) without anything else? I do not need to be able to adjust governors etc. I just need root and would like to keep full functionality and of course to NOT trip KNOX.

Is this possible?

...another sw? You mean ROM? ROMs coming mostly with a kernel.... . But you mey change the kernel of course, if it's compatible...
I guess, it might be an app, which causes your screen wakelocks...

    ~~~~S6 UniKernel~~~~

    For Galaxy S6 920 F / I / S / K / L / T / W8
    For Galaxy S6 925 F / I / S / K / L / T / W8

    For Lollipop 5.1.1 only!

    UniKernel Features
    - Supports F / I / S / K / L / T / W8 variants of 920 AND 925 devices
    - Supports 920FS, ID and SD Dual SIM devices
    - All edge screen special functions on Edge devices working
    - Built from official Samsung Sources
    - Full init.d scripting support
    - SE Linux set to permissive (will prevent private mode from working)
    - Stock Clocks
    - Fully working Auto-Root for all 5.1.1 roms
    - BusyBox injection if not detected in ROM
    - DriveDroid support
    - CIFS / FUSE

    Kernel Configuration
    The TWRP flashable kernel now comes with an Aroma installer, allowing you to choose a configuration you prefer. It also comes with 3 preset options - Stock, Performance, and Battery.

    The Stock preset will make the kernel behave exactly as a stock kernel - no turbo mode, CFQ scheduler, stock interactive
    If no pre-existing configuration file is found on the phone, (ie - New ROM flash) the ODIN flashable kernel will also have stock behaviour.

    Every Aroma option is clearly labelled with an accurate description of what the setting will change. You are free to reflash to change configurations or manually edit the /system/unikernel.prop file that is generated by the installer (and then reboot). If you choose either the performance or custom options and enable Turbo mode, do not post in this thread about poor battery life. Turbo mode costs battery. deal with it

    As i have said before and will say again, I release based on feedback from my trusted, knowledgeable testers, whose feedback i value much more than the bulk of respondents in my thread who post such wonderfully helpful things like "deepsleep bad rolling back" :rolleyes:

    Have you investigated the issues yourself? Do you even READ THE OP where i post a "stock" replacement kernel? Do you check with apps such as Better Battery Stats which might help you identify the causes of the issue, which in many many cases is an app you have installed? Do you take into account how many notifications you recieve while its sleeping, where you go, what the coverage is like, do you have GPS location still enabled, what WiFi coverage is like, etc etc

    Im sorry but Im developing it how i want and if my testers say its good, its good. I will gladly take on board actually useful feedback but the bulk of the last few pages is just meaningless hearsay, to be frank. If 50% think its better and 50% think its worse, then who is actually right? perhaps its THE SAME :rolleyes:

    I have 6 extremely knowledgeable testers, some of which are well respected devs themselves of various things. They know what to look for, what compromises have to be made and how to actually investigate and feedback on any issues that arise. I trust their feedback 1000% more than what I have read on the last few pages. So im sorry, if you dont like it, use another kernel. simple as.

    Well, after a long, well needed break (from xda, lol) v8 is finally released!

    Please read the OP carefully so you understand how the Aroma installer and the ODIN flashable kernel operate.:good:

    huzzah!

    Hello my friends!

    Sorry for my recent absence, i have beeen extremely busy with work recently, festival season and whatnot. But today i bring you a BETA of v7 - a somewhat radical and unique rethink on how to control a kernel :good:

    Changelog:
    - Some unification updates for LED and Motor (vibrator) differences between flat / edge models
    - AROMA Installer!

    The Aroma installer will allow you to choose your own kernel options during installation :D. It is a totally clean, app free, ROM modification free way of controlling your kernel :good: The ONLY thing that gets changed on your rom is a unique unikernel.prop file in /system which is only read by unikernel, and nothing else.

    During installation you can choose:
    -- Default IO scheduler
    -- Turbo Mode On / Off (stock) (de-lag)
    -- Interactive tweaks On / Off (Stock)
    -- VM / DHA / FHA / Stock-DHA Settings
    -- Inputboost On (Stock) / Off
    -- GApps Wakelock Fix On/ Off (stock)
    -- Audio Patch autodetected for T/W8 models or International models (allows T/W8 users to use International Roms and vice-vera)

    The Aroma installer defaults to all STOCK Kernel options, each option is thoroughly described and you are free to experiment and choose your own options :good: If you want to change configuration simply reflash and choose alternatives in the Aroma installer :good:

    Massive thankyou to Edgarf28 for getting me started on the Aroma installer and to all my testers who have tirelessly been trying this out over the past couple of weeks

    Download here >>>>> https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347790555

    Enjoy :D

    EDIT: the aroma installer kernel version/date is wrong, but the build is the latest, just need to change some text in the installer which i totally forgot.. Also should add that if just the boot.img is included with ROMs without an included /system/unikernel.prop file the kernel will default to a completely stock configuration, hence no more need for UniBase
