[RELEASE] ShinTo Kernel “NewBorn” L09A04 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” 🙂
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…
Shmooth!!! Nice work, gets better every release.
There’s a lot more coming
Please can you make a kernel for cm12.1?
U will consider it once ShinTo Kernel for LP is out of beta and all the new features I have planned are in.
I’d like to thank you for your interest in ShinTo Kernel.
Can I flash this with my N900S?
I am not 100% sure but you could do a nandroid backup of everything just in case and try the N9005 version and see how it goes.
Thx for coming back with an LP version of this great kernel! One question: it seems that my battery is draining if I use my phone while charging. Is that normal?
Depends on what your phone is doing and what is the charge mA that you are getting.
If you’re plugged in your laptop you could be getting as little as 450 mA…
I’d suggest checking the cpu usage of background tasks as maybe you could have some app/task that is stuck.
Hey bro, got a quick (hopefully) question for ya…
You got built-in f2fs support (SWEEET!!!!), but I wonder if it could be enabled to external sd as well… I see where you enable it during boot, so just wondering if it’s just a matter of doing something along those lines as well?
I’d say it’s not as simple as that as sdcard is mounted as a virtual device and there are some things to look into and also some side effects…
Should be possible but I’d have to investigate…
Ah… yeah, hence the vfat.
I may have to experiment 😉
Experiment failed 🙁
Ah well… at least there’s always exFat LOL 😀
Excellent work as always bud!
Thanks for the awesome kernal. One quick question. I’m using sm-n900t with sm-9005 ROM on it. Which version of kernel you recommend?
Well if u understood correctly you should be using the N900T…?
You’re most welcome and thank you for trying ShinTo Kernel
Just want to say this is awesome kernel and I can see you put a lot efforts in it, thank you so much for your hard work, and I would love to see this piece of art running on AOSP.
Thank you very much!
Currently working hard on squashing a few bugs some ppl seem to encounter.
Hopefully tomorrow I can have a new release out.
Thank you for all of your genius that you have shared with us. This may be a stupid question, but after seeing all you have done for us over the last forever, I wanted see if you could help first. It’s simply because,out of everyone In The Know on the net I trust you the most. I have a SM-N9005 International Version, Kitkat 4.4.2, N905XXUGNG1, V40A06 Second Reality. I want to upgrade to the latest Lollipop and your latest kernel. Is this possible? If so, could you point me in the right direction for the Firmware and instructions for such a move? I just knew that if anyone knows, you would. I really appreciate your time and help. You are a programmer, among programmers. Out of respect and utmost appreciation, I have every relevant app you have produced for my setup and have gladly paid for them all. Keep up the good work.
