Everyone else I might have forgotten, please let me know and I’ll update the post! 😉


Although I have been running this version of the kernel for about two weeks now as my daily driver, and I test everything in real life, I take no responsibility if the phone has an issue, scares your cat, drops the job interview call of your life or makes you fight with your neighbor 😉



Please don’t direct link the zip file.

If you would like to include ShinTo Kernel in your rom, you’re more than welcome; just give everyone credit and include PreCog.me as the site for ShinTo Kernel.

I really hope you enjoy ShinTo Kernel (as I have been), and I would advise you to subscribe to PreCog.me for more goodies to come (specialized software, articles, diy, news, etc)

  1. ShinTo Kernel SecondReality V40A01 for N9005 (EUR/EUROPE).
  2. ShinTo Kernel SecondReality V40A01 for N900T (TMO/T-Mobile USA).


  • Check previous sections “fixes / performance enhancements …”
  • A lot more stuff that I forgot :p


  • Synapse: mic volumes reset to -84 the first time you launch synapse but I have included code to reset it to 0. You only have to accept and it will reset to 0.
  • Synapse: Fast charge; For values to stick across reboot, you HAVE to UNCHECK “FAILSAFE” at the bottom of the screen in “FAST CHARGE”.
  • ShadowLED: Works without issues once you deselect led notifications from the ROM settings.
  • Screen tone: At first boot, it may happen that the screen tone is washed; you just have to turn off the screen, wait a few seconds then on again and it’s fixed.
  • VIPER4ANDROID: When you first start your phone, viper4android is off. To fix, you have to launch viper4android so it restarts it’s engine. That issue happens if you have eXpanD activated.


  • Absolutely NO kind of support will be given here or at XDA if you happen to have any issue while you are Overclocked or Undervolted.
  • If you encounter an issue then you will have to reset to stock manufacturer sanctioned settings (300 Mhz to 2.230 Mhz & stock voltages), remove ANY/ALL scripts in /etc/init.d/and reproduce the issue with all debugging turned on (Go to Synapse “SYSTEM DEBUG”).
  • Once you reproduce the issue with stock settings, ZIP the two “ShinTo” log files in the root of your sdcard (/sdcard/) and send us a link to download said .ZIP file with a detailed description of your issue, Note3 model, rom name & version along with what you were doing when the issue happened.

    Any chance we will see this kernel functioning with N9005 running the leaked Lollipop build? Much appreciated for your work, loved it on 4.4.2, but Lolli is so much smoother and with more options that I would rather not go back to KK…

  2. Alexander says:

    I love to see the precogGov developing…. Good work! Keep it up!!!

    • iamskynet says:

      Thank you!; PrecoGOV will develop into much more than what it is now and as soon as Samsung drops LP Kernel sources, I’ll start porting over and releasing a ShinTo LP Kernel.

  3. bassini says:

    PrecogGOV is precognition yes ?

  4. eric says:

    Can you confirm that CIFS support was removed in this version?

  5. bins says:

    This kernel is amazing my phone flies.thank you

  6. binnns says:

    This kernel is amazing very fast and smooth.thank you for sharing your talent.

    • iamskynet says:

      There will be a lot more exciting and exclusive stuff for the Note3 ….This phone is a beast and can do soooo much more than it is currently doing!

  7. Ghost says:

    Is there a way to UV by script/terminal command?
    If there is can you please tell me how?
    I’m not using Synapse or any other app to configure your kernel, so it would be awesome to be able to UV by script.

  8. J. Terrell says:

    Great release. This kernel is kicking ass! Buttery smooth and it sleeps better than a baby. Many thank yous for your amazing work.

    • iamskynet says:

      Thank you!
      Stick around as V40A02 should be release anytime soon and it should be a LOT better than V40A01 😉

      • 6h0st says:

        This kernel is far better than any other I’ve tested so far. Can’t wait to see the next version.
        (PS: Didn’t find anything about good UV with scripts from Google, if anybody knows or find something about Undervolting Note 3 with scripts please let me know here, if anyone else is interested, or at [email protected].)
        Keep up the ShinTo way! 😉

  9. 6h0st says:

    I have a stupid question now…
    What’s the point of having 268,8 mhz CPU frequency if it consumes 750mv like 300 mhz frequency? Shouldn’t it be set to a lower step like 730 or 740 as default at least?

    • iamskynet says:

      Well… It depends on each and everyone to experiment.
      I have been running 268 @ 630mV for months without issues… 😉

      PS: If you overclock or undervolt and you have issues, it will be up to you to sort them out.

    Any support for 5.1.1 tw roms

    • CeKMTL says:

      Yep…. You should use the Great DARKERA13 5.1.1 rom for when ShinTo Kernel will be available openly.
      ShinTo Kernel is now in private closed beta in the 5.1.1 Spanish rom by Danivancouver and will be released sometime this coming week.

      Among other things ShinTo Kernel solves the video camera flicker.

      Stay tuned for more in my twitter account.
