Huawei’s Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro Android Phones Get Custom Linux Kernels

Shipping with three different governors, including alucard, blu and darkness, the WhitePugKernel mod for Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro mobile phones appears to bring a lot of goodies to users of these devices, such as support for the NTFS (read/write), HFS, HFS+, and MSDOS filesystems. Additionally, the custom kernel offers XZ and LZO kernel compression support, ZRAM support with LZ4 compression, three schedulers, including fiops I/O, sio I/O and zen I/O, an option to disable fsync, faster fingerprint wakeup, fingerprint gestures, as well as Xbox joypad support, though it’s untested at the moment.
