ShinTo Kernel “KobayashiMaru” L22A03 for 6.0.1 UX

Welcome to the official public 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” 🙂



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 as the site for ShinTo Kernel.

ANDROID 6.0.1 N7 UX ONLY !!!!

N9005 L22A03 #1533 for 6.0.1 (TEST VERSION)
N900T L22A03 #1533 for 6.0.1 (TEST VERSION)

Please note that this is a TEST VERSION as I haven’t tested much of it due to the fact that in a few hours I’m taking a plane to attend Droidcon UK so I’m running like a mad man… :p

Also there are still some issues with the whatsapp gallery sharing thing… Need more time to do a proper RCA as in my case Whatsapp is working correctly…?!


  • There’s NO SUPPORT ANYMORE. If you have an issue or think that ShinTo Kernel is the reason your boss hates you, I URGE YOU TO UNINSTALL, install some other kernel and go bother them.

      Right now I can’t but next week I’ll look into it.

      • 12gage says:

        That’s great news if you can, I’ve heard nothing but good about your kernel through the whispers at XDA since I guess it’s not allowed there. I can’t try it because I’m on N900P Sprint, if you do make it for other models I’ll gladly test!

  2. Mike B says:

    Works like a charm here (N900T) so far. Thanks for bringing the sound mod back. Have fun at Droidcon!

    Just want to report some bugs Sharing photo from Gallery to FB Messenger gives an error. Others like FB, G+, Buffer and Hangouts are working fine. I get playback error on a video I captured. Other videos from non captured camera are playing nice. The videos I captured though is playing on MX Player but on Gallery and Video they have errors. Thanks.

    • Bratboo says:

      I am on Phronesis Rom N7 port using Stock Camera with stock Gallery and Video. If you need a logcat just tell me. Thanks

      • CeKMTL says:

        Thank you for your help, I’m already aware of the issue but I’m currently travelling abroad without a computer.
        I’ll have a look into it as soon as I’m back to my home country.

    • Triceratop says:

      I have similar issue with this kernel.
      Images, saved from net by browser or facebook application, or taken by camera, can not be shared thru the whatsapp and viber. Early taken by camera and saved from net images may be shared via these apps, no problem.
      When I returned lss 3.7 ux kernel – these images still can not be shared via whatsapp and viber, but new downloads and camera shots (after kernel reflash – without problem.
      At the same time, these images are normally shown in gallery and uploaded to Dropbox with it’s camera upload feature, so, some apps can’t operate with these images, some others – can, strange

  12. muzli says:

    Some people saying mostly move folder screenshoot and put the External SD. Its will be fine to sent pic on whatsapp or any pic you take it.

  13. Garry says:

    For those who can’t send screenshot via whatapps ,all you have to do is move your screenshot to sd card and now you able to do it. Tested with several times. I believe the video same too. So pls fix this problem in the next updated. Thx.

  16. Ton says:

    Reports after testing the kernel.
    1. Hardwake and homeguard worked fine (with proximity prevent screen turn on when blocked) if AOD not turn on.
    2. Hardwake and homeguard partially working if AOD turn on ( screen can be turn on even proximity was blocked ).
    3.if AOD turn on, when screen on, if i double tap screen, it will turn off the screen again. So when i type to fast, screen will turn off.
    4. If i reboot device when phone hot or warm, phone will keeps bootloop, i need to cool down the phone then it will not bootloop.
    5. Whatsapp sharing issue.
    Thx for your hardwork, i like hardwake and homeguard feature in this kernel, very usefull

    • CeKMTL says:

  23. Dakemin says:

    Do you guys have a delay with screen coming on after deep sleep.?

  24. Carmine says:

    Mr. Carlos,
    just one question to you : i want to clarify this is just a question no push, no bother you or other.
    Are in your intention to keep alive the Kernel project for the Note3 smartphone or you are on other project in this moment?
    I ask because i love Shinto-kernel-kobayashimaru and i really hope that you go on with this project!

    Thanks for the answer!

    P.S. Sorry for my English 🙂

    • CeKMTL says:

      I’m currently into many projects at the same time but the Note3 is very close to my heart so I’ll try as best as I can to keep pushing my updated code & algorithms

      • Carmine says:

        I want to thank you first of all for the good news and also for having answered me.
        If you need any support (all in my possibility), if need some test or anything else that can help you, i’m here and at your disposal!
        I have galaxy note3 SM-N9005 LTE and also for me it is in my heart!

        Thanks again Sir.

    Hi, your kernel looks very promising but I can’t use it cause my note 3 is Korean variant N900K.

    Saw your comment about release for other variant and I’ll gladly wait for your update.
