[ tips / recommendations ]


  1. before u report any battery drain issues please read this:
    [GUIDE] HOW-TO Properly Evaluate Battery Life and Provide Useful Reports

  2. faux123 has posted very nice info regarding most features



[ my kernel sources ]

Just a statement regarding kernel source: The Kernel Source is released for all at GITHUB repo given below. BUT Free software does NOT mean no work or time was spent working on it. A lot of my free time has gone into patching/testing this kernel/features integrated in this kernel. If you use my modified kernel source in parts or in its entirety, I kindly ask you mention its origins and to send me a github pull request or PM whenever you find bugs or think you can help improve my kernel hack further. This way the entire community will truly benefit from the spirit of open source.

Thank you !

Just flashed successfully :)
On monxdified Rom

Though thought this kernel had double tap to wake but not working. Unless I have to do something to enable it?

Straight away noticed boot up time was 42 seconds, before it was about 53 seconds.

Some features will not work as you mention. Try to check the battery drain in intellactive governor.

I'd hope any development of dt2w functionality is in a new / additional version instead of the "stock" DoomKernel... I don't want to have to drop the only tweaked sony kernel available :)

This is the same thing I said about the SlimKat kernel I ported, when people requested additional features: I won't do it, at least not for these ported kernels, because in this case they won't be "SlimKat Kernel" or "DooMKernel" anymore, but something else, and I want them to remain as close as possible to the originals, differing only on what is needed for them to work in the ZU. If in the future I develop my own kernel, then I'll gladly consider all your suggestions. :)

Why do you didnt include cpu overclock on this kernel, the z1 one include gpu and cpu oc but that part ou your port isnt. Is it correct?

The thing is that original kernel you ported does support DTW.
I am sure I will enjoy kernel if it fixes power drain

As I said in the first post, I haven't added, removed or changed any features. AFAIK CPU and GPU OC were disabled in the Z1 kernel due to some incompatibilities, at least on v08 and v09, and I'm not sure if they are back in v11. I'll investigate, as the CPU and GPU are the same in the ZU and Z1, so it should work if it is already working in the Z1. Meanwhile you can check with someone who has a Z1 if these features work using v11.

    [ tips / recommendations ]


    1. before u report any battery drain issues please read this:
      [GUIDE] HOW-TO Properly Evaluate Battery Life and Provide Useful Reports

    2. faux123 has posted very nice info regarding most features



    [ my kernel sources ]

    Just a statement regarding kernel source: The Kernel Source is released for all at GITHUB repo given below. BUT Free software does NOT mean no work or time was spent working on it. A lot of my free time has gone into patching/testing this kernel/features integrated in this kernel. If you use my modified kernel source in parts or in its entirety, I kindly ask you mention its origins and to send me a github pull request or PM whenever you find bugs or think you can help improve my kernel hack further. This way the entire community will truly benefit from the spirit of open source.

    Thank you !

    [ IMP NOTE ]



    1] starting from v19 onwards you will not be able to get back to stock kernel directly as the wifi related files get changed while flashing kernel!

    2] I will release updated advanced stock kernel package to support easily going back to stock kernel!

    3] THIS BREAKS exFAT compatibility for now! if you have exFAT based external SDCARD IT WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS KERNEL VERSION!
    I am working on fixing this but it will take some time!

    4] Sony Z Ultra GPe is now officially supported! I will release kernel for that device later...
