* I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed (like it did for me...).
* YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
I'm sorry if my English is bad as it's not my native language.
* This ROM isn't mine. I just modified a bit to fit to daily use.

Hello, can you port the cm12.1 made for core prime to core 2 keeping the stock kernel? Because i have used the one ih24n made and his one had bugs and wasn't stable for daily use and his sandroid kernel slows down games drastically for whatever reason and these issues exists in all the roms i got from him.

Or just a detailed guide for porting a core prime rom to core 2 keeping the stock kernel will just do a lot for me.

    It doesn't work for me on a Galaxy Core 2 SM-G355HM, the rom installs successfully, but when I reset the phone, it ends up stuck in a bootloop with the boot animation. Is there any fix?
    The author of the original custom ROM (@Ih24n) only has a SM-G355H model, so the ROM might not compatible with M/HN. You should try other custom ROMs. Sorry.
