Mainlining

  • MSM8939 is a great platform to get started with mainlining! It can use the dedicated MSM8916 Mainlining guide that explains how to get started (as both SoC's are very similar). Most of the time you need to change 8916 to 8939.

CPU

Using all 8 core feels sluggish, therefore currently only 4 are enabled.
