    Team Osiris
    And downthemachine present:
    The Glitch Kernel
    Based off hroarks original work​

    Special thanks to Kroegs, Bocephus87 for donating! Thanks for your support!

    I am not responsible for any damage you may do to your phone. This oc has been tested many many times, but going past stock levels could cause damage. You have been warned!

    Questions are for the threads only. I will not respond to help questions in pm. All that information should be open discussion.

    Now in two flavors
    Non oc
    And 1.7Ghz OC

    Non OC​
    The kernel everyone has been using on almost every rom
    Swap support
    Ext2/3 support removed for more memory
    Proper init.d startup
    Ramzswap compatible, no script yet

    *Added governors for more contol

    Glitch Non OC v1.13

    This is what everyone has been waiting for. kernel Over locked to 1.7ghz
    Stable, no loss of ril on wifi and no Bluetooth issues
    Added governors
    Swap support
    Proper init.d startup
    Ext2/3 removed
    I/O schedulers added

    Glitch OC v1.2
    Same as v1.1 literally no difference
    Except includes default set to 1024
    As a script. You can disable this script in init.d folder. Credits go to the makers of voltage control. User can define higher speeds with an app

    Glitch OC v1.1
    IO Schedulers


    Glitch kernel v1.0

    No longer supported
    This is only oc and swap

    Installation instructions:
    Make a backup!
    Choose install zip in cwm
    I would recommend you get an app like voltage control to set frequencies and io schedulers

    Recommended apps:
    These are the two I tried. I use CPU master pro. I haven't tried the free version. I wouldn't recommend setcpu for anything. I've had many issues with that app.
    Voltage Control
    CPU Master Pro

    *Special thanks goes out to Hroark13 for the hard work he put into making the original zte source usable. Also for consulting with me during the course of working on it. I'd also like to thank my testers. Without you, this would not be possible. And thanks for putting up with my 30 builds a night testing.

    And of course the members of team glitch

    * is to be added soon

    Look mommy, I'm gpl compliant. You should be too!

    if ya want to buy me a soda, coffee, etc to show your appreciation, I'm providing a donation link.
    All donations go towards all things android and not for anything personal. Make sure you post your name at the end of that link so I know who to thank.

    There is a known incompatibility issue with some build.prop modifications where wifi connects but doesn't have data. When I get time I will find the exact modification so it can be removed.

    whitefiretiger found that this


    In some build props causes issues with wifi. Thank you for the find!

    There are also some issues with read ahead speed with oc. I am currently looking into this. Stay tuned
    Results for read ahead.
    I have found that different governors change the read ahead.
    interactiveX gave me the best results for read ahead
    Scary is a good balance of speed and read ahead

    This is a good explanation of governors and schedulers. there are a million on xda,
    but this is the one i picked

    Moving to 1.8Ghz top.
    Memory and battery saving:
    VDD controlV1.4
    SLQB Memory Allocator
    memory compaction
    Fudgeswap LMK
    Zram & zcache.
    Updated kvm.
    Governors added, smoothass, lag free, brazilianwax, lazy, and lionheart

    Maybe ill flash it after i disable v6 and kak and see how it works
    Edit- so it turns on fine and co nects with v6 its the kak that messes it up somehow. Leavin my wifi on to make sure i still have service after a while.
    Edit2- i had to cut testing after my old friend sticky toggles came back. I only ever have the issue with them after turning wifi on but ill deal without wifi

    About how much memory is freed up by removing ExtFS support? And does your OC kernel banish the typing lag that Hroark's had?
  13. downthemachine

    downthemachine Developer Incognito VIP Member

    Honestly I can't tell you about hroarks kernel, it never worked for me. As far as the lag and issues with the other oc kernels it was improper voltages. Mind you this is just a start. I'm still testing new voltage and frequencies to get the best balance.
    And as far as support for ext2/3, Hroark had told me that removing support for them may free up some memory. He had also said that support for them are not need with the warp

    Ext2/3 are only needed if you plan on setting up a partition with 1 of them and even that can be done with ext4... though I wouldn't mind having btrfs support ;)

    I found a build.prop tweak that causes wifi issues with the oc kernel.


    Tested on three different roms.

    That's enabled to in the stock prop as well as yoshi and I don't have any wifi issues
  17. Tigatron

    Tigatron Well-Known Member

    Well I'm not seeing that in the stock prop

    But the problem it was making was when you boot with wifi off when try to turn wifi on it would go "turning on" "turning off" wifi wouldn't work till reboot then would switch on off fine till reboot with wifi off then same thing again.

    I removed that line and poof no more trouble
  18. drewhill77

    drewhill77 Well-Known Member

    Lol yeah... that's why I don't like to put too much into build.prop. I prefer to make those changes where they originate from... make the system do it right the first time :)

    Tigatron Well-Known Member

    Its in yoshi and i had the same issue on yoshi as well.
  20. drewhill77

    drewhill77 Well-Known Member

    Hmmm... Didn't you have trouble with shins oc as well?
  21. Tigatron

    Tigatron Well-Known Member

    No. I'm one of the lucky ones it works for. Never had any issues.
  22. drewhill77

    drewhill77 Well-Known Member

    I dunno then... I'm running Yoshi with it on and haven't had any problems yet... but I've also only rebooted once since the update...

    As far as it being on stock... it's on all the ones I have... though I have to admit it's possible they may not be all that stock lol ;)
  23. Tigatron

    Tigatron Well-Known Member

    Lol I've got the stock prop its not there. i use it for testing. If i suspect a prop tweak i switch to stock then if my issue goes away i work from there.
  24. drewhill77

    drewhill77 Well-Known Member

    Whenever I want to test out new prop tweaks I'll either open a terminal or use adb and the setprop command... that way all I have to do is reboot my phone and it's gone.

    Are we confirming a link? Or are we unsure about that prop setting?
