In case you downloaded Grimoire 3.3+ via the given One Drive link or from the Mega/Mediafire folder and got a failed to unzip archive in TWRP don't fret! It was a corrupted zip file. Bablus, the creator messed up something but now he fixed it. I've replaced the files with a good one in Mega, Mediafire and One Drive links too. Now Grimoire 3.3+ zip should work just fine in TWRP. Sorry for the inconvenience.

No. I tested it on custom kernel and flashed it. This confirms that it's not corrupted.

I've only checked in with root, smartpack kernel manager but I'm sure it's not installed. New custom kernels have 4.9.240 or above Linux.

Months later, still no description for each kernel, so how do we know the feature? Don't even know where you found them..!

The One Drive, Mega.nz and Mediafire public folders with the updated kernel.zip files within are still updated regularly which are available from the original main post.

Hello.
I have Realme 5 Pro on firmware c.11. Since I don't want to lose the camera's capabilities, I am interested in the possibility of installing Dolby Atmos on RUI, are there any actual instructions? Is it necessary to change the kernel for this? What will happen with system updates and stability of work?
I once had c.07 and installing Magisk along with Dolby Atmos ended up with bootloop.

It is also interesting what advantages the installation of custom kernels gives an ordinary user. It would be nice if it was written in the topic header. Whether these advantages outweigh the possible disadvantages.

I've only used Dolby with custom ROM and it worked nicely so I don't know about Rui. However the only thing that should make a difference while using Dolby atmos is selinux state (permissive or enforcing), not the kernel itself.

As of advantages and disadvantages of having custom kernel installed, I'll add this section to the main post. It's a good idea.

    Realme 5 Pro/Realme Q custom kernels
    For codename: RMX1971EX/RMX1971CN


    -->
    Updates and logs as of 2020.01.01 are available here<--
    (click the link)

    Status update:
    Sadly XDA with its major overhaul nerfed site capabilities, again thus a post cannot contain more than 20 images. Meaning I won't be able to provide you the change/update logs in the previous format as images. I'll try to still provide insights of the changes but only with links instead of the more visible and easily accessible images. Say your thanks to XDA devs, again.

    Disclaimer:
    I’m no developer or programmer so I can’t add/remove features, fix experienced issues. Neither can I forward your messages to devs working on these ROMs. Most of development for our device happens on Telegram channels but XDA prohibited the sharing of Telegram links so this does hinder work and a few other things. Because of this I can’t link original posts and sources but I’ll try to do my best to give you end users enough information. If you need anything more you can either look up “Telegram Realme 5 Pro” in Google search and try to find the main group or PM me on my Facebook/Telegram page so I can redirect anyone who wishes to join the development team/forum or just wants to test new builds of ROMs/kernels. We have a main group for everything, development group for testing, photography group, gcam specific group and downloads group.

    Updates:
    I’ll leave the link for latest uploads here in this thread and will upload the files too. However updates and logs will be kept in the first comment.

    Current kernels:
    KharaMe for Rui based ROMs and Oxygen OS port by BabluS
    Grimoire for Cos based and cusom ROMs by BabluS
    (New Grimoire works only on RUI based ROMs for new ROMs are built from RUI source code)

    Stock kernel for latest Color OS and Realme UI:
    View attachment Stock-Boot-COS-A.17-Flashable.zip

    But I've also uploaded them to Mediafire, Mega and One Drive folders above just in case.

    Custom kernel pros and cons over stock:
    For the average end users who don't know much about the importance of kernels (though I don't really advise such users to flash custom kernels) I'll sum up the pros and cons of flashing custom kernels over original, stock ones.

    Pros:
    • Updated (upstreamed) selinux version (means updated security)
    • Better performance, battery life or maybe even both
    • Highly customisable features
    • New in-built features such as K-Lapse or K-Cal, kernel based audio gain and tweaks etc.
    • Smoother UX

    Cons:
    • Some kernels are enforcing/permissive selinux only
    • Performance may vary depending on ROM type and between kernel versions
    • Some kernels don't pass Google's SafetyNet by default but that's rare for custom developers work hard to make CTS profile and baseintegrity pass

    Kernel source:
    GitHub Bablus' source

    Any chance for this to be added? Are people just installing random kernels?
    What is known about these kernels and changelogs are already added in the first comment a.k.a post #2. Source code is in the first post itself.

    The KharaMe kernels fix the audio breaking from boot (Bliss ROM) also speed operations etc, up by 30-50+% - awesome kernel, great post - many thanks
    Glad to hear it helped.
