kernel for DU-Rom

i tried hodor-kernel (the anyrom-version). And this kernel works with dirty-unicorn. Only one issue with wifi...and i dont know how to enter recovery after i installed kernel and rom...
so if you want to overclock dirty-unicorn you can use hodor-kernel.

To enter recovery power off hold vol up and power then when booted let go of power then when you see purple notification light tap vol up few times then should enter recovery

Just thought I'd give a shout-out to this amazing kernel as I flashed it yesterday along with the latest CM11 nightly. I have to say, even though this kernel hasn't been updated in months, it is still (IMO) the best KitKat kernel out there for the Yuga. It has plenty of options in the kernel settings and most importantly, the battery life is the best available without sacrificing performance. Device doesn't come close to heating up as much as it usually does after modifying the Intelli-thermal settings. Again, still the best usable kernel out there for the Yuga.

EDIT: Wow, the difference in battery life of this kernel vs. others is ridiculous. With other kernels, I can only watch 2 1/2 episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix before the battery gives in. With this kernel, I can easily watch 5-6 epsiodes while still having a few percentage left to rush and put the phone on charge, lol. Again, excellent job, Thomas. Sad to see you move on to another device. However, your legacy for the Yuga is sincerely preserved. :)

QFT - every word. Also, thanks to you for bumping this thread. This kernel needs to be added to the DevBB (or whatever will have it appear in the 'Kernels' tab of Xperia Z).

I got an Xperia Z for cheap a few days ago, and since then I was struggling finding a *stable* AOSP solution. All firmwares (CM11, Pac, PA, etc.) stock kernels have either heat issues or the intermittent "bzzt" sound issue (apparently it's a blobs thing, whatever that means; but I'm on .283 FTF so I've no idea what that excuse is about) and all other kernels had their own issues (lightning = severely unstable, MEOW = obsolete, etc.)

Also, I wanted something with FauxSound support

I was worried that I got a dud phone and was about to roll my own kernel, until I saw this thread bumped and your reply - excellent timing! Thanks again to you and the KMA developer for making a no-bull kernel with excellent performance and battery life. It's only been one day of heavy use in my CM11 + Xposed + KMA setup and all my daily apps, but I've not had a single problem.

And yes, the battery life is crazy good. Some kind of sorcery going on there. I did some quick research on all the governors and I settled on HYPER, apparently it belongs in the "battery-saving" category of governor but the UI and Wake-up responsiveness is very impressive.

Cheers!

Glad I could be of (indirect) help! And yes, this kernel is quite magical with its performance-battery life ratio. I'm currently running Interactive as my go-to governor along with SIO scheduler and Westwood TCP congestion. Even though this set-up does not generally fall under the battery-saving category, it is nonetheless extremely battery efficient and performs better than any Yuga ROM/Kernel combination I have ever booted.

In case you would be interested, this same (amazing) dev also worked on Lollipop for a little bit before getting a hold of a Nexus 5 (and thus quitting work on the Yuga).
forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-z/orig-development/exp-lollipop-xperia-z-t2929369

I have never tested it. But with it being a product of this same dev AND having KMA kernel built into it, I can definitely vouch for it. The only thing I may have to suggest, for ethical and fairness purposes, is that it was last updated November 30th of last year and considering the hot mess Lollipop is by itself (thanks for that, Google), I would proceed with caution.

For the guys having build problems try this:
1. rm -rf kernel/sony/apq8064
2. cd kernel/sony/apq8064 && make mrproper
3. rm -rf out/target/product/yuga/obj/KERNEL_OBJ (or just a make clobber for everything)
4. repo sync and build

Should help, as I just tried a build from clobber and had no problems.

hi
what is this mean?why ?i have this issue too.
can u explain more ? step by step
repo init
Get https://gerrit.googlesource.com/git-repo
fatal: unable to access 'https://gerrit.googlesource.com/git-repo/': Failed to connect to gerrit.googlesource.com port 443: Network is unreachable

    Hi guys,

    Ive been pretty busy lately with school.
    I noticed the merge of 4.4 on official CM. This makes my rom kind of obsolete now. And because of limited time I decided to drop the rom and continue with the kernel only. So the next release will be a kernel only release ( of course a continuation of the current one )
    15
    So you guys beat me to it. But yeah the new build is up, with full .230 kernel + source. Enjoy! If you encounter any bugs please report (afaik the google drain issue is still there)
    If you appreciate my work please hit the thank button or make a small donation.

    Im working on the .230 source. Need to fix some 200 merge conflicts first. Then need to test the blob part. I hope it will be done this week.

    @thomas1991_12 btw.. i figured out why Google Play Services goes crazy and drains battery like hell:

    It looks like the drain is triggered by the new libinversense_hal based sensors framework.

    Switching back to DASH fixes the drain - no idea why, but my best guess would be that the libinversense_hal based sensors framework confuses the 'activity recognition' of google-play-services.
