XC Genesis Kernel

Features
- Sony RIC disabled
- dm-verity disabled
- DRM patch included
- Patches from CAF
- Patches from Google
- Added some CPU govenors
- Will update the OP over the next couple of weeks - not much time at the moment - for now feel free to explorer my github repository for detailed changes.

Installation
- Install the .zip file via TWRP (the boot.img will not work on it's own)
- For upgrades you can use FlashFire 0.53 - which is what I am using if your device is always with root access.
- Then flash SuperSU if required.

thanks man.. that's very cool. keep up the awesome work.
2Ghz limit/possibility for the 2xa72 would be nice since they are rated 2Ghz.
I guess it runs on any current nougat rom since .266 is the only version out yet?

I just saw a bug in the installer script which I have just fixed. I missed it before because my phone was working and already had the files loaded in the correct place from when I was putting the initial version together.

I have version 1.02 ready to upload now, providing the XDA uploader is working.

EDIT: I have removed the v1.01 and tried to upload the new version but it never attaches after verifying the MD5. @Darth, could you help me or know someone that can?

EDIT2: Seems to be a more general issue with uploading screenshots and files and is been worked on so not to worry, will wait until it's fixed

Do you know if there were any updates to the stock kernel between .266 and .273 that is being rolled out to some devices now?

I made a request to androidfilehost a couple of weeks ago for the XC to be added so will switch over when it's available. I don't have a personal server.

There are no changes between the two versions to the kernel.
