The CyanogenMod and Kernel isn't my proprietary it is the proprietary of CyanogeMod team and @ketut.kumajaya respectively. However the kernel has some changes made in accordance to SFOS and also I have patched it to decrease the boot up time delay.
Edit: Now Lollipop bootloader is supported. Tested it and SFOS was able to boot up.
