Hello everyone..
I'm using s9+ and I'm thinking about to switch 6t Mclaren edition. My question is: if I buy mclaren, can I use every rom/kernel for regular 6t? For example can I use warp charge with a custom kernel for regular 6t?

Shouldn't be any different.
The charging is with the power management and the kernel doesn't do that.

Actually I have a McLaren flashed custom kernel. Lost warp charge. It is in the kernel. Tested this on stock rom before last update. If there are new kernel sources released for the last ota that merged the software then maybe it will work since regular 6t users have the McLaren finger print animation hidden on their phone, must be in csc file or such or customed by model #

Current custom kernels do not support warp charge for mclaren

Also just tried update from flar2 Jan 2 warp charge still does not work on custom kernel currently

Theoretically I was thinking about same. I guess I can't buy mclaren edition. Reason is lack of development.

It's not lack of development all roms will run. Just don't have warp charge until the sources are release for the kernel devs. Usually a company (I forgot exact amount of time) but I think it's 90 days to release their sources for a new phone. This is so another company cannot steal their stuff. The devs will build for the new kernel. But the sources have not been released yet
This phone is the best phone I have ever owned. I've had multiple htc phones and Samsung phones and nothing compares to this currently.
Stock kernel and battery life are fantastic no lags runs great. I hope the sources not being released doesn't sway you from getting this phone

You lose fingerprint scanner on all custom roms ATM so they aren't terribly useful at least for me. Stock ROM is good no real need to change it, and if you absolutely need a custom ROM just use the stock kernel and you should be fine. As others have stated it will only be a matter of time before the kernel sources are out and warp charge will be added. But until the fingerprint scanner gets figured out I'm staying on stock ROM.
