Boeffla-Kernel - your everyday's kernel for the OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus One, Samsung Galaxy S5 and S3 - made with German precision.
Basically I created Boeffla-Kernel as there was no kernel for the Samsung Galaxy S3 around that had exactly the mix of functionalities that I wanted. I wanted to have full flexibility in undervolting and charge rates for instance, but did not like the sharpness and/or brightness tweaks many kernels have implemented as per default and not switchable.
Hence, I began to create my own kernel after a while, adding all the features I like. This is the result of my work, which in the end I decided to share with you. I hope you like it as much as I do.
The objective of this kernel is to have a kernel for daily use. It does not aim for best battery life, or best smoothness or best benchmark scores. It aims more for a good mix of all, not sacrificing stability and functionality in the end.
So the main targets are:
- Stay very close to stock kernel, to not break functionality and have great stability
- Try to improve smoothness a bit
- Try to improve battery life a bit
- Try to give some easy options for tweaking and configuration
Said that, I will never implement things like:
- Real "hard" overclocking above 1.6 GHz (if you need a gamer kernel, there are enough around)
- Things that I do not need or consider to be important personally
What I might still implement in future:
- Interesting new stuff that I like
- ... you tell me?

Credits to developers
Of course, I had never been able to create all that by my own. So I want to give credits to the really good developers around, that have given me all the inspiration and from which I cherry picked lots of the implemented functionalities:
... I just hope I did not forget someone. If so, please let me know and I will add you of course.
Thanks to all of you for your great work !!!
Credits to testers
Of course, I also want to thank all my beta testers that gave and still give me a lot of feedback during every development phase.
Thanks to all of you for the time you spent testing the various betas.
