Before proceding, please consider learning from Garfield :

(Thanx to MuertoKo for this educational image)

I have spend numerous hours coding, merging ... and writing this OP, so please have the decency to at least read it before asking questions.


FIRST OF ALL, do a Nandroid backup before flashing !

By flashing this ROM you agree to do this at your very own risk ! I will and can not be
held responsible for whatever may happen as a consequence of using this ROM / kernel.
This software is made available to you as is, no waranties can be given.

If you do not agree to these terms, then please use your browser's back key.

You have been warned !

What To Expect Using This Rom

First of all, the main reason this ROM even exists is because I make it for my own personal use, I don't mind adding one or the other feature upon request by a user even if I don't use that feature personnally, but I don't intend to make it the XXL edition of the swiss army knife ... read on ;)

Main objectives for this ROM :

  1. be as stable as possible to be usable as a perfect daily ROM (conservative approach)

  2. give a good battery life while being snappy

  3. give users handy additional in ROM features

  4. be and stay as close to stock AOSP as possible

  5. allow only for moderate CPU OC (kernel)

  6. code interesting features myself (like battery icon, WiFi country override etc.)

  7. include interesting commits by other teams / devs (giving proper credit, of course !)

What NOT To Expect Using This Kernel

  • experimental modifications

  • cutting edge development

  • thrive to be the first, fastest, best, most advanced ... ROM ever !

Credits & Thanx

This is the most important bit of them all, a small place to pay tribute to all those who have helped me making this kernel :

  • Faux123

    Thanx for helping me get started, out of an almost 20 years break on Linux kernel compiling (at the time it was Linux 0.47 if I remember well), helping me build my compile box(es), upfront getting my first Android kernel compiled, making mods, merging sources, using github in general ... and always taking the time to explain and help out !

  • Slim Team

    For having been the ROM i've been using for so long, and which I finally started compiling on my own in the beginning of this year.

    Also for having been so helpful to get me started and taking me in as a contributor on their team, which I'm honored to be a tiny part of ;)

    And last but not least, most of the features in this ROM come from SlimLP, so all props go to the team !
