Although I have been running this version of the kernel 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 NewBorn L09A06 LP for N9005 (EUR/EUROPE).
  2. ShinTo Kernel NewBorn L09A06 LP for N900T (TMO/T-Mobile USA).


This new release of ShinTo Kernel includes the following :

  • Huge eMMC bug fixes + upgrades & enhancements; I mean a TON of patches!
  • Invested many hours in hunting down and fixing PrecoGOV bugs… some very sneaky :p
  • Enhanced PrecoGOV (and activated some dormant algorithms), now at version 1.9.8
  • Ported over Samsung MEA sources.
  • Removed IntelliPlug (If you need to have IntelliPlug, I’d advise you to look elsewhere).
  • We are still at BETA so you might have the occasional problem (or not).
  • REMOVED UltrLow mode 268Mhz as there are some Note3 that don’t seem to like it much… For now I’m focusing on STABILITY.

It is compiled with latest available LINARO Toolchain GCC 4.9.3 compiled by the great Christopher83


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • N900T WIFI CALLING: Sorry guys, I haven’t had the time yet to look into it and see where the issue is. I hope to get it sorted out on time the release of L10A01.


  • Absolutely NO kind of support will be given here 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”).
  • Please use the included SYSLOG APP, select ONLY the first two options and send the ZIP file/upload somewhere so I can have a look at it with a description of what you were doing, what happened and the kind of device, rom version and if you were using XPOSED or not.

    Working very well and doing battery.. Noticed some errors in Synapse when setting precov for the first time but it set correctly

    • CeKMTL says:

      Haven’t had the time to review and improve Synapse so there will be bugs there. Thx for reporting, will try to improve Synapse for the next release.

  2. Silitek says:

    Thanks buddy..L09A06 works awesome, battery-use and performance!!..

  3. kopitalk says:

    Another brilliant release! You really put a heart into the phone! Very smooth UI, very responsive and aggressive while in use, sleep quickly and very well too! Question, what’s the settings for kernel VM > DBR, DR and Swappiness? Suggestion: as ShadowLED is taking over LED control from notification, is it possible to bind notification to touch key light (e.g. blinks when a message comes)? Muchas gracias!

  4. Hi there, so i saw a post where you required some logs for feedback. Here’s mine: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B24gwDhTSqH_V29sWkhpTmM3NmM/view?usp=docslist_api
    My notes are within the Zip folder on what I think caused problems. Hopefully you find some useful info for your next release 🙂

    I tried a lot of kernels but yours i like the most. Probably that’s why i always come back to it. Lovind the concept of Precognition governor. Thank you. Keep up the good work.
    PS: I’ve been getting some random reboots when fast charge is active. I set the failsafe to disabled, and used custom charging values. I don’t need help but you could look into it to fix it in next versions.

  6. Albert T says:

    Sorry I cannot for the life of me find the download link anywhere? Can someone pls provide me the link, thanks!

  7. Sean says:

    Just an FYI, the precog gov. setting doesn’t stick after reboot, defaults to interactive.

  8. 6h0st says:

    If you change your phone while it’s powered off and try to power on it reboots back in changing mode.

  9. papa says:

    This kernel is great. From some reason the last update from August 23 does not work well on my note 3. I cannot change the governer to precog, and I get an error message. It is working well with the previous version from July 24. Do you have any idea why is that?
    Thanks for your work.

    Download link?

  11. evol says:

    I set the min gpu freg 200mhz in synapse but it still 27mhz, my phone is so lag

    • Cruor says:

      I’ve SM-9005 (international version) and in Synapse I’ve 27 mhz on GPU, but no lags, it runs very smoothly. Try to delete all files in synapse folder and reboot. If you get no luck, reinstall kernel, but before flash a kernel cleaner zip. If it still lags, try to full wipe and reflash your ROM.

  12. kevp75 says:

    Hey mate, can you email me your recommended default settings for the kernel & precognition govenor?
    I’m attempting to put together a .git repo of my tweaks (since they are all ramdisk related, why not make it universal 🙂 )
    I’m going to try to get as many in there as possible and definately want precog on-board


  13. chris122 says:

    Where is the kitkat version for those of us who haven’t to update to lollipop, I have waited for 3 month did you discontinued it?

  14. kouros17 says:

    The only problem is that i have many lags in games. All the rest works perfectly on my note 3. Any idea?

  15. Nathan Brown says:

    I’m extremely confused, where is the download link?

  16. kopitalk says:

    Hi Carlos, IMO this is already the best and flawless release! Smooth, responsive, stable, rock solid, battery friendly, all function working… Can’t imagine what further improvement you will include… AWESOME!
