Just installed quantum kernel, but can't find where to change settings...

Tried searches, couldn't find a quick answer, after installing Quantum kernel on another AOSP ROM, where do you change the kernel settings?

I just wish you didn't have to get an invite to get the OnePlus One. I'd like to get one but getting annoyed at the invite system. By the time they quit doing it, the Nexus 6 may be out and that's what I may get.

Yep. I too am very interested in the n6 or shamu or whatever it will be called. It better be affordable or else I'm out. I think I'm done with locked boot loaders. Too many close calls trying to upgrade for friends. But this trusty s3 is still running strong. And I'm sure we have not seen the last quantum kernel

Amazing battery drain with my 7A battery :/


What is the best kernel and ROM??

I gave up on the OnePlus One. I had gotten an invite randomly for whatever reason and didn't get to use it or give it away. I would rather just wait for the Nexus 6 or the Note 4.

Yup. Honestly the M8 was a pit stop because no home literally died randomly and I was on vacation and needed something new ASAP. I miss my X a little still :(

I converted it to GPE so no Sense BS... But don't worry... Quantum is not dead! I have a nice like day break this weekend ;)

    Kernel Source

    All my great users: for most of them being here since the beginning, this one's to you
    Finally a build is going through. Hopefully it fixes the camera issues present in CM right now. Compiling with Java 7, GCC 4.8, and other stuff. Let's hope it all works out!

    Build going along fine so far... Hopefully the secret thing I wanted to add actually compiles in :)
    QuantumKernel 4/14- Battery Edition
    -Aaaaand here we go.
    -Linux 3.4.87
    -MSM-Sleeper is back!
    -Power Efficient Workqueues- Backported from Linux 3.10 for heavy battery life savings. This will save a ton of battery life in regular usage.
    -Optimized memory/lowmemorykiller
    -Speed like never before
    -Makefile optimizations changed AGAIN
    -Data speeds upped
    -No latency wake up

    Important Recent Features
    -GPU OC to 480 MHz
    -Fsync is now default enabled and switched to HTC's version (faux)
    -AUTO HOTPLUG is back! (Wakes up device faster)
    -Introduction of BFQ Scheduler
    -Increased Sound Quality- hijacking our hardware to take advantage of a higher quality audio output
    -Slobby,Slubby,Slabby,Sloppy- updates for pure I/O and scheduler speed
    -Use less RAM for debug junk
    -Optimize schedulers for quicker wakeup
    -Optimized deadline for battery life and performance
    -Optimize ROW
    -Reduce network latency
    -Intellidemand 5.0 updated from our old 4.2
    -Meet LoUIS, the new hotplugging helping, cache maintaining, system boosting API
    -Dynamic Dirty Page Writeback- will adjust dirty page writeback during system on/idle for the best performance and battery life possible
    -MSM-Sleeper- Allowed to set a max screen frequency while screen is off for ANY governor. It is adjustable through TricksterMOD
    -Removed InteractiveX as it is no longer needed
    -Updated to Linaro Toolchain
    -Re-enabled Dynamic FSYNC
    -Heavy VFP Optimizations- this will speed up our devices by at the minimum of around 10 percent. This lets our phone work with our hardware on a nicer level along with getting some heavy optimizations for more VFP based operations, allowing for better kernel implementation.

    This is the best kernel I've made yet. Still has settings FC, but it's absolutely perfect right now. Battery life is absolutely stunning. Came in at around 30-40 commits of pure optimizations. I stayed up until 4 for you guys last night :)
