  • How can you choose between the CPU governors? Used to do that with the Synapse in the Superman rom, but there is no UCI support according to the app. Also how do you use the Boeffla wakelock control?
    • Hello my friend. All is controlled by the app MTweaks :-)
  • Camera zoom works only if you can turn on the flashlight without flashlight you can zoom though but if you then take a picture, the picture is taken without zoom 🤔
    • I don't think that this is related to the kernel, more the rom itself. Thanks for reporting!
  • Hi, can i use this kernel with this rom: [ROM][STABLE][N][7.1.1][AQIA][13.11.17][SM-N950F/FD/N] IronMan-Rom 1.0.0_b2
    • Yes this kernel is made for full n8 ports such as the IronMan-Rom :-)
    • Thanks,
      I'll try on my S7
  • Can i Flash super su 2.82 or Mist i Flash super su 2.82 sr5 after Flash the Kernel?
    • Flash your preferred root method after the kernel, either magisk or supersu yes
    • Yea i know .. but i don't know if it necessary to Flash super su 2.82 SR5 ? Or will i geh the Root back je im only Flash the normal super su 2.82?
      Because of Android 7.11 ...
      Do you Understand what i mean?
    • Yes I understand, but because the default 2.82 SR5 was included in the rom I suggest you to install the same version again :-)
    • Sorry bacause of my writing ..
    • Ok Dude i will do this ..
      With the Batman Rom i only flashed the old supersu 2.82 after flashing a new kernel. It works also
