  • Andrew

    • Валери Фиков

      +1 and if not when to expect update

  • Eugene

    does this kernel support bln control app to work? and what does it mean by it works only with 4.2.2 roms?

  • ronnieler

    Hi, I haven’t been able to find any clear post saying this kernel would work with i337 ATT version. Haden said he used an auto loki package. Does it mean I would need a different file than the one here ”

    ” ?


  • Juan A. Zapatero

    I can see two different .zip files to download. One says just, the other one says the same plus KnoxFree2, I am still on stock MGA, without KNOX, which is the one for me?

  • Haden Butikofer

    Oh yeah, best kernel I’ve ever used! Smooth sailing ever since I flashed this on my Galaxy S4. I use this on the FoxHound ROM. Originally, I used the Google Edition Ausdim kernel, and the battery life sucked, and it was a bit choppy. I popped this sucker into its place and my battery life is amazing and the phone is blazing fast! I used this on an AT&T LTE Galaxy S4 with an auto-loki package called Loki-Doki. Totally worth it. I would pay to have this kernel! :D

    Anyone tested?

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Yep, check download links: +2600 downloads.

  • Khalfan

    you mean this kernel can not be used by i9500??

    • Sergio Aragon

      This kernel is ONLY for i9505. You’ll get a brick if you flash it on an i9500.
