Dropped Kernels

This post is just to announce that I’m dropping support for the G Watch R and the Moto X 2014. As for the former, it’s been a while since I changed to the Huawei Watch and sold my GWR so I really can’t ensure stability especially with the latest releases and that’s unacceptable for me. As for the latter, it’s kernel is still based on Linux 3.4 so I’m reeeeeaaaally feeling it’s age when it comes to optimization not to mention that it’s not my daily driver anymore since I bought the OnePlus 3 which I’ll be releasing a kernel for soon. Anyways, thanks for all the support even after I quit XDA! Hopefully we’ll meet each other on one of the devices I still do support. :p

G Watch R Update!

I finally got around to compiling my kernel for the G Watch R with my latest updates from the Huawei Watch. Don’t know if it works though since I’ve long since been separated from my G Watch R. Anyways, try it out and mention in the comments if it works or not. I still don’t know anything about the bootloop on charge though so don’t expect that to change. With my changes it shouldn’t be hard to get the GWR to last until you get to a charger! :p

Bricked Kernels v2

I just uploaded new versions of my kernels with bricked hotplug capability for the G Watch R and Huawei Watch! These now have improved algorithm based on my personal research on core use/activity together with some code optimizations so that it runs faster overall. I’ve also modified the NwN thresholds so that it’s harder for it to enable more cores thus keeping use of a single core unless REEEEEEAAAALLY necessary. :p

Bricked Kernels

I just uploaded new kernels for the G Watch R and Huawei Watch. These just “refine” the power saving mod I made. Also, I’ve published TEST KERNELS for both which use the bricked_hotplug code by showp1984. This is anΒ in-kernel replacement for MPDecision so let me know of your experience during actual use! πŸ™‚

Massive Kernel Releases!

Just finished uploading a huge bunch of kernel for ALL my supported devices! This includes the G Watch R, by the way! πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, the G Watch R Marshmallow suffers from the same problem as the Huawei Watch so only single version for now. πŸ™ I already have plans to address this though so no worries…although time is a bit of a problem. :p

Common Changes:

  • memory leak fixes

3.10 Kernels:

  • added EXT4 performance patches from Linux-Next


  • single core versions only
  • G Watch R currently has no F2FS support so beware if you converted your cache or data partitions

Marshmallow Finally!!!

We finally have Marshmallow for the Huawei Watch! I’m still waiting for the code drops to push though so until we have that, there’ll be no new release for the Marshmallow update. Patience… πŸ™‚


I would like to apologize since it seems I forgot to update the toolchain when I compiled for the last kernel. Please erase that line from your expectations. :p

Kernel Update!

I’ve just finished uploading new kernels for the Nexus 7 2013, One G1, Huawei Watch, and G Watch R! Details below:

Common for 3.10 Kernels:

  • updated to latest Linaro GCC ang Binutils 2.26
  • adopted 4k stack size to reduce memory utilization
  • assorted memory leak fixes

Nexus 7 2013 (20160131_11XX):

  • reverted most of the changes except basic configuration changes to fix some odd problems

Kernel Updates and Fixes

I’ve just uploaded version 20160125_21XX for the Huawei Watch and Nexus 7 2013. The Huawei Watch version contains assorted code improvements which, hopefully, should further improve performance while the Nexus version has a sensor hibernate fix. I’ve also uploaded a new TEST FIX version for the G Watch R which *might* fix the stupid dock issue. If it doesn’t just comment and I have another fix which, again, *might* fix the issue if the previous doesn’t fix it. :/
