    Hello, i have a S4 i9500 with Omega Rom 10. I want to flash this kernel via recovery. I have downloaded the zip file (7.1MB) My question: this is the only file i need to flash? the 7.1mb zip file? or do i need some previous base files before flashing the 7.1mb zip file?… Tnks!

    can i flash this kernel in mdk…???***

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      No, you need to use Adam kernel 1.3.2 or update your Firmeware.

      • khan hasan

        currently m using 3.4.5-Adam-1.2+wanam@ubuntu #24
        do i need to update

  • nore

    I’m still having the “Camera Failed” issue when accessing the camera

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Because you are using an old Firmeware.

      • nore

        Is stock 4.2.2 old?

        • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          Nop, you flashed it over MDE/MDK/MDL or any other Rom lower than MEA.

  • t00r

    just a question,… if this kernel comes with wolfson sound control .. why boeffla sound give not supported kernel error when i try to install it?

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      They aren’t the same! i use AndreiLux implementation, AndiP (Boeffla) implementation uses a different sysfs.
      Use the included Swteaks App instead.

  • ksamj

    my ringtones become lower than before after applying the 1.6 ..will this would help to make it normal as stock firmware????

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Try to reset your Stweak settings and reboot, i guess you kept sound settings previous updates.

      • ksamj

        should i just reset and exit or reset and click on “flash changes” button
