System process takes up 15-20% of the CPU usage. And that's it, there are other apps like Google search, play services, mifit, glasswire and phone services that's running in the background, these all total to a 30%

The process of the system is quite heavy. What causes this?

It depends on your use scenario.

You can always find what I'm working on from my GitHub, right now I'm improving kernel.

Dev, can we expect a patch for Krack before the November Google security patch?

Try AEX 5.0, it is stable build now.

Amazing, Will try it now,
Moreover, how about battery life and fluency like gaming and other tasks?

Yes, it is pretty stable now, shutter lag also gone, one can use this as their daily driver. No issues there.

It would be great if David update template in op, to show it's progress as beta or stable and build update progress :)

    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,

    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.
    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
