So we had a Kernel with EAS support, and now we have a AEX 4.5 AEX 4.6 build with it:)

What is EAS? Well, better read this article.

Code:
/*  *** Disclaimer
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, riots, Star Wars, 
* Return of Jedi, Empire striking back. YOU are choosing to make these modifications,
* and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device,
* [B]I will laugh at you.[/B]
* BOOM goes the Dynamite
*/

KERNEL FEATURES:
  • EAS support.
  • Additional I/O scheduler(Fiops(by default), noop, Maple, Tripndroid.
  • Schedutil CPU governor. DON'T CHANGE IT
  • Based on AEX for Z2 by @davidevinavil and commits from EAS-project.
ROM FEATURES:
  • Full EAS support.
  • Thousands of tweaks for smooth and fast UX.
Contributors: @Renderbroken, @DD3boh, @davidevinavil, @varotone, EAS-project team and entire Z2 Plus development team.
Installing procedure.

Code:
-Download the ROM and GApps of your choice
-Backup each and every partition from TWRP Recovery
-Make a full wipe (system, data, cache, dalvik)
-Flash AEX Package
-Install GAPPS package
-Wipe cache!
-And at last Reboot!
[First boot will take few minutes! Have patience]
Clean Flash is always recommended!

Time for FAQ
1. Can it be installed over official AEX?
It should be possible. Clean flash is always top 1 choise for you, but you may give it a try. Remember to wipe caches.
2. Can I install custom kernels?
No one prevents you from flashing it, and it will work(most likely), but you will lose EAS support and why not use official ones with custom kernel,
huh?

3. Whats the difference between Official and this one AEXs?
F1xy kernel(not "Legendary battery life")(useless placebo patches and "magical" optimizations)(obviously more, check my GitHub).
Full EAS support(latest powerhal from Pixel, powered by Google and kernel support included)
Various smoothness tweaks + attempt to make LTE and 3G connection more stable.
4. Why is CPU underclocked to 1.4/1.7 GHz?
Just read this.

You should mention in OP that this kernel does not have the last blobs so on ROMs like Aex or rr which have it by default, camera should not work. I've not tried but as others says on aex thread it is happening with jaguar kernel

Incredible battery life.

You touched a sensitive nerve there.. testing since 4 seconds after reading..

General feeling from first minutes with AEX 4.4 24/7 release:

Better colours
Multi-tasking speed increased
Responsiveness increased

Performance in 3d gaming mixed feelings (slightly higher initial loading times, better in-game loading times, no particular difference while playing)

Smoothness decreased
Camera quality decreased (very slightly) but i definitely confirm camera is working on AEX
Heating very slightly increased

Of course I can't talk about battery for now but definitely no overdraining

Thank you for your work

Colors are adjustable via Kernel Adiutor, I'll research what can be done about camera, give me some rest)

    Alright, I decided to stick with AEX for EAS update. It is the most updated ROM for Z2 and everything is ready for building. So... Give me a few days and everything will be ready)

    Paranoid compiled and booted. Gotta fix some bugs and ill post initial build in a new thread.

    Hello guys !
    Sorry for disturbing but I just need to let you know that a "small" cleaning has been performed in order to redirect this development thread to its normal course before the floods will cause more damages.

    Personal vendetta is definitely unwelcome , I bet that the large majority of us wants to see useful posts like, " I have found this problem , here`s my log / evidence", "I`ve found a workaround, this is how to" and some more similar and not drama and crossfire between users.

    We have the Forum rules , whenever one needs to post and doesn`t know how, must read them or simply ping a moderator, unpleasant posts also must be reported and personal issues taken to pm and if not solved, reported.
    That being said guys, happy flashing and less bashing
    Thanks for understanding
    Dan - forum moderator
