@myself5 and I were in need for a custom stock kernel to mess with. Since all the available Options were not fitting our needs, or gave us bad experience on some aspects, and we knew about Zombie Kernel from Tom, we decided to start working on that. So I brought up support for the Z5, we ported Kexec to it, updated it to 224 and added various things. Since the kernel gave us very good experiences, we decided to make it accessible to the public.
This Kernel is based on @Tommy-Geenexus Zombie Kernel. He was ok with us continuing/porting his projects, so myself5 and I started to create the "oshmoun Myself5 Zombie Kernel" aka OM5Z Kernel.

THIS DOES ONLY WORK ON UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER!
You can either flash the provided boot.img via fastboot, or flash the zip in recovery.
The Kernel is underclocked by default. Both Cluster are underclocked to 1,344/1,536 GHz respectively, resulting into HUGE Temperature improvements. However, due to public demand, V2 features the ability to disable the underclock (in case you need to make some baked Eggs real quick, whatever). All you need to do is run this code after boot (Kernel Adiutor has the abilty to execute scripts at startup, just a reminder).

Thanks a lot to those who have donated!
Some stock kernels require different Recovery Images than AOSP Kernels. We set an end too this, and fixed init_sony, rather than using some very outdated software which somehow works. This means, you might need to use a different recovery with this kernel if you're currently on a "stock" recovery. We're hoping that other stock kernel devs adapt our solution, so we can set an end to the old scripts.
