Linux 4.9.251, latest CAF tag for sdm845 on android11, arm64 optimized assembly routines from mainline kernel, atomic clkgate_enable update for ufs, sdFAT 2.4.5, inline spinlock, OK Google fix, UFS clkgate and hibern8 powerhints, iwlan, libwfdaac_vendor from source, EvoX patch for passing safetynet, and some new features!


  • Formatting data and clean flash are required if you come from android 10. Please do not update through OTA if you are on android 10.
  • Dirty flash or update through OTA is fine from the previous EvoX android 11 versions.

Device Specific Changes:

  • Etude kernel: Op.11 No.2
    • Linux 4.9.251
    • cleaned up and merged CAF tag LA.UM.9.3.r1-00500-sdm845.0
    • backported arm64 optimized assembly routine from mainline kernel: NEON accelerated XOR implementation, faster checksum, consistently enabling crc32 extension, and bug fixes in copy
    • use atomic update for clkgate_enable so that frequent toggling from power hint does not cause a timeout
    • use WQ_HIGHPRI for UFS gating work
    • minimized qos remap updates in sde plane
    • updated sdFAT to 2.4.5
    • inlined spinlock function family
    • DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
  • Fixed OK Google hotword enrollment
  • Brought back UFS clkgate and hibern8 power hints on LAUNCH for faster app opening
  • Enabled iwlan legacy mode
  • Merged CAF changes on
  • Built libwfdaac_vendor from source

Evolution X Updates:

  • Patched keystore to pass SafetyNet again
  • Added toggle for signature spoofing
  • Added more lockscreen charging styles
  • QS panel opacity option
  • Misc fixes

Gapps, vendor and firmware are included. Dirty flash may be fine if you are on my previous Evolution X build.
