[RELEASE] ShinTo Kernel “NewBorn” L08A01 for LP

Welcome to the current official release of the ShinTo Kernel series.


Please always get the latest release from HERE

Why name the Kernel “ShinTo”?

To me it has the meaning of “Study of the Essence” (to achieve) “The Way of The Gods” as, to me, ShinTo Kernel is a way to learn and become an expert.
Also the name just sounds very “catchy” 🙂

Why “NewBorn”?

I chose it just to celebrate the birth of ShinTo Kernel for Lollipop (LP).
I know it took me quite a long time and I apologize for that…

    • CeKMTL says:

      Hahaha very glad that you can get some ZzZz!
      Be sure to run ShinTo Kernel with PrecoGOV (precognition governor)

  3. Edward Phifer says:

    Runs great. Fast. Unbelievably fast. But in Kk kernel, WiFi calling works, but I guess it hasn’t been implemented on this yet. WBe switching full time when it does

    • CeKMTL says:

      I didn’t even know about WiFi calling…will have to check it out and fix what needs to be fixed.
      Thx for reporting, I guess this is for the N900T?

    • emuandco says:

      More precisely this happens after recreating the ART cache on first startup. After I went back to arter kernel my Play Services were gone and of course all bindings to it.

  5. Irfan says:

    Does this kernel solve the micro stutter when scrolling in some apps ? I really want a very smooth note 3 experience

  6. Irfan says:

    I already flashed it and it didnt suit my phone. It lag and stutter more compared to my current kernel. My phone is note 3 n9005

  7. jhfreeze says:

    Dude, so awesome and stable. But alas, same boat with n900t, got to have my WiFi calling. Can’t wait for your next release I will definitely be waiting and thank you for your great work. Let me know if you need someone to test.

  8. zhobotero says:

    at last here it is.. thanks man

  9. j3n5t says:

    Thank you for the update. Everything is running smooth for me. I don’t use WiFi calling so this update is great. Thank you for all you do for our beloved note 3.

    • CeKMTL says:

      My pleasure and thank you for sharing with us!
      I will research and fix the WiFi calling…sorry about that 😉

  10. Yoann says:

    Nice job! Shinto power in my note 3 again!

  11. hi cek, got problem while setting the max screen off frequency to minimum after i turn the screen off then on the cpu frequency is locked to minimum setting and cpu voltage cant be edit got error msg ‘seek bar failed’. but overall its all good the performance and the temp is awesome. thanks again for bringing shinto to lollipop.

  12. zhobotero says:

    love the smoothness and doesnt even goes above 63c while playing, even though im on a hot environment while playing. but i encounter a problem on setting the max screen off frequency to minimum, after i turn the screen off then on the frequency is stuck at the minimum frequency need to reboot to get things back on normal, and cant edit voltage too, got error message ‘seek bar failed’. but above that all, its really great.

  13. zhobotero says:

    got problem while setting max screen off frequency to lowest, after turning off then on the screen the clock frequency is locked at the minimum, need to restart the device to fix. cant edit voltage, error says ‘seek bar failed’. but overall kernel is so smooth not even temp goes high while playing game compared to others. thanks to you man.

  14. I’m having trouble finding download link 🙁 Thank you, been waiting for your LP kernel ever since transferred to LP!

  15. chris122 says:

    I guess the KK is kicking butt, thanks appreciate your time and work…

  16. Andy says:

    Is there a way I can remove shadowled? It’s stopping me getting led notification prompt.

    Awesome work btw

    • CeKMTL says:

      Of course you can disable ShadowLED; you can do so in Synapse app ➡️ ShinTo Features ➡️ ShadowLED.
      Thank you!

  17. Chee Seng says:

    I’m not sure is it kernel problem, I using norma s6 edge port Rom and after flashed your kernel ; I’m getting auto reboot and all my apps data clear itself. Also getting the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped. (After used the Rom for sometime only occurred)

    Try to clear cache partition and dalvik also same problem. Currently restore other backup Rom.


    • CeKMTL says:

      Well without logs to know what went wrong I can’t say for sure… I’ve heard that some version of S6 port doesn’t play well with this beta version of ShinTo Kernel…
      This week I should be releasing a new version that has some cool stuff in it so hopefully you can try it and it will work better for you.
      Thank you for trying and for reporting your findings!

  18. Geoff says:

    I have experienced a similar problem on a non s6 ported rom and on the s6 edge rom I’m on now. I thought at first it was caused by the precog gov, which is awesome might I add. However it only seems to occur when I’m overclocked. I’m using precog now at 2.3ghz and no reboots or data loss, which only affected the app I was using when my phone freezes and reboots.

    • CeKMTL says:

      Hummm yeah that’s why I always ask if it happened while overclocking or undervolting (or both) but almost no one answers the question lol
      Wait to see the new version of PrecoGOV that will drop this week… I honestly am impressed and always think it’s placebo lol
      New version should improve/fix/avoid the lost app data after reboot thinguie.
      Thx for trying ShinTo Kernel!

  19. Geoff says:

    Ops, submitted too early. I do not have any logs unfortunately which is obviously the most helpful.I’ll see if i can duplicate the issue again and get that for you. Appreciate the work you’ve put in. Thank you.

    • CeKMTL says:

      It’s OK, wait for the new version that is dropping this week and we will take it from there if there are issues to debug.
      Thank you!

  20. Geoff says:

    Sounds good. Yeah i completely forgot about your statement above about overclocking. In regards to your placebo statement – heck no. It is a noticable improvement in performance, namely scrolling smoothness and speed after synapse applies the settings on boot. Look forward to the new update!

  21. anonymouse says:

    Hi, I tried following the steps for switching from ext4 to f2fs, but all I see is the swirling dots that you see before the android logo for half an hour. It never booted into system so I had to switch back to ext4. Anyone else encounter this?

    • CeKMTL says:

      I am currently running ShinTo Kernel on F2FS on all partitions…
      Would check the size of the system partition before conversion to F2FS, be sure to leave at least 200 Mb of free space.

      • anonymouse says:

        my system is reporting 734 MB free. anything else that might cause it? should I do all partitions instead of just the system and data mentioned in the instructions?

        • CeKMTL says:

          Well… What I would do to debug the issue is first format cache as F2FS and leave system and data as extra and see if you can boot up. If you can then go to Synapse and confirm that you have cache recognized as F2FS.
          If so then go back and convert system to F2FS and try to boot and see if Synapse lists it as F2FS.
          If that also works then try with data.
          If system fails then do the opposite (system ext4 data F2FS).
          That’s why I can recommend from the distance to troubleshoot the issue.
          Let us know how it goes.

  22. Alexander Sattler says:

    Any chances for a shinto kernel on note 4? My note 3 was stolen 🙁
    Replaced it with a note 4, after all the time i thought it’s time for a better device, but it’s not really better without your kernel…

    • CeKMTL says:

      Oh crap sorry to hear that your Note3 got stolen…
      Yeah I plan on porting over all the stuff that makes ShinTo Kernel unique over to Note4 (snapdragon) once I stabilise ShinTo Kernel LP.
      It will take me some time as I am currently overwhelmed with many projects.

  23. I love the new Second Reality Kernel.It is awesome. I have a Rooted N9005 International version Galaxy Note 3 running KitKat. I’m looking for a way to upgrade to Lollipop and then install your new kernels for that. Can you point you point me in the direction to find the upgrade and installation instructions for my phone. I come across places on occasion, but cannot figure out what will work and what will be safe and trusted.

    Thank you in advance for your help. I’m a big fan of yours and certainly aspire to grow my knowledge to a comparable level with yourself.

    Best regards,

    • CeKMTL says:

      I am currently travelling and on holidays so have limited access to Internet and can’t extend myself much.
      I’d advise you to go to some big forum like xda and read about LP roms. Some of the most famous ones that have been tested with ShinTo Kernel are “Aryamod” “S6 port by Darklord” “Alexander series of stock roms” and another one I forgot about right now.
      Do not forget to make a nandroid backup of everything just in case you need to restore.
      I guess the easiest way to upgrade would be to download an official firmware from samfirmware, flash it with your pc and then on top of that, proceed to flash the modded rom of your choice.

      Sorry that I can’t be of more help right now…
