    You should now be the proud owner of a new kernel in arch/arm/boot/zImage or arch/arm/boot/zImage-dtb. We prefer to use the -dtb extension if given the choice. but in arch/arm/boot/ i have: bootp compressed dts install.sh Makefile : this is just the valila test kernel. make i get error no dts directory even though there. what is final step to make kernel. .

    Nah - it's not you, it's me
    We've been busy re-writing the kernel patcher and nethunter installer to deal with all the changes introduced by Android 9.
    The problems only popped up now because they are only enforced on devices that ship with Pie, which happened just recently.

    We are all set now and can continue.

    How are you going with the stock kernel?

    The most important thing is to get a vanilla kernel built and successfully installed.
    We will almost certainly brick the device a dozen times so we have to be able to recover.

    yea i noticed you had a bunch going on thats why i waited a few days. when you say stock im assume you mean arter97's. as long as i dont touch the mac80211 in the menuconfig it builds an image, image,zip image-dtb in arch/arm64/boot/ but no z-image like the wiki says. i have no clue what to do from there. i did look into compiling some but i spent alot of time on what seemed simple in post 54 is a screenshot of checking the mac80211 with and without patching. that i decided to wait. bricking is no problem its probably the one thing i can do is unbrick a phone and razor has a simple script to do just that at https://developer.razer.com/razer-phone-dev-tools/ the original source there to. so thats were im at is pretty much in post 54. i have no idea what else to do. ill be here probpabl;y all night. give me zips to flash ill flash them. point me to instructions to compile myself ill study up. tell me to jump ill say how high. snoogins lets do this

    Don't worry about our wiki for now - that comes later.
    Building a stock kernel helps us evaluate what we can work with. No point trying to build a zImage if all the kernels for that devices usually ship as image-dtb.
    So the first discovery is that the stock configuration of the Angler kernel builds a "image-dtb".
    Perfect, that what we can work with.

    Why don't you package that up using an AnyKernel3 template and test if that installs properly on your device?

    Fingers crossed.

    Let's make sure I get that right:

    You installed the Arter97 kernel package from the xda thread ok?
    You compiled the Arter97 kernel without any modifications using the exact same installer scripts and it doesn't install.

    Correct?

    I'd start with using the Arter97 kernel package and replace only the kernel image with the one you compiled.

    I usually feel invincible and create a kernel from scratch with all the bells and whistles, then copy it into my own installer, install it and often brick my phone.
    When that happens, i.e. it doesn't work, I follow a systematic approach to eliminate as many uncertainties as possible. These are my steps:

    1. Install a complete kernel package that is known to work (e.g. positive XDA feeback)
    2. Compile kernel using the source and toolchains of the kernel in step 1. without any modifications
    3. Replace the kernel in the installer with the kernel I compiled
    4. Re-compile the kernel multiple times, enabling more and more features, installing and testing if everything is still working as we go
    5. Apply patches to kernel, install and test
    6. Replace toolchains with the ones of your choice, compile, install, and test
    7. Replace the kernel installer used so far with the one of your choice, test installation
    8. Add system patches to the installer as required, install and test
    9. Add kernel to NetHunter installer and merge all modifications required.

    Voila, that should get you there

    Yes thats a good system . you know what your doing After i finished with post 4 i had no idea how to compile it let alone installer. So ive perrty much spent 48 hours doing differt combanations of how the 4 lines of intsructutions. Could be interpeated. I need paths there are usualy way more then 1 folder with the same name in a repository. But thevreadme never says what one its talking about. Or something as simple as are they seperate repositories, or is on cloned in the other. I know these are basic things you guys do subconcesly. But my eyes feal like the're bleeding. I know it anowing. I get frustrated when im in your place with things i know. I never even saw a linux pc before i acidently found pocket kali on whitedome last year. and decided learn something new. Ordered a gpd the next day. The fact that a softbricked nexus's were like 10 bucks on ebay. Sorry got off track. Theres one im gonna flash after posting this. And shut it down for a day. At least to rest my eyes then start again tomorow night. How about doing 1-3 on your list and give me a vanila one compiled corectly to flash. I dont know how to do corectly. So they are not realy test kernels. Know what i meen

    I have a razer 2 phone rooted with magisk on arter97's kernel currently running and TWRP working. I have a backup on the phone and on my PC so I'm not afraid to get involved.

    I also would love to use this phone with nethunter. Idk if you're still wanting to work on this @re4son but i appreciate your efforts thus far and will assist you in any way i can. I've been following this thread and attempting to build the kernel using the steps shown in main post but when I go to do the final make command it gives me this:

    Let us know when you got it and I'll walk you through this whole thing in a new threat.
