The kernel itself would work fine on 17.1 too. However the boot.img from 18.1 would most likely not work fine. I currently don't have the time to pack the kernel as a flashable zip.Thanks for the quick reply.
Sorry if this question is stupid(I dont have much experience with Android/Linux):
Regarding the WiFi country code selection WIP - the kernel you linked seems to be in the lineage-18.1 branch.
Could I flash the Kernel you just sent over the Kernel Im currently using and then run the currently installed lineage 17.1 off of it? (and then flash your boot image for the wifi fix)
-probably not changing to 18.1 just yet, because "supposed to be stable" does not sound ready to be a daily driver.
or in short: does that kernel also support 17.1?
18.1 is as stable as 17.1 with 2 exceptions so far: WiFi hotspot does not work correctly and the screen does not turn off while the device is powered off while charging.
