Huawei Honor 8 Pro

A new custom kernel is now available for the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro with new customizations and additions to improve the performance and battery life for your devices. The WhitePugKernel, developed by XDA member joe2k01, adds numerous governors and schedulers enabling you to tweak your device to your heart’s content.

The WhitePugKernel is based on OpenKirin team’s Ressurection Remix OS sources and hence carries the same bugs which are present in the original ROM. The kernel also has data formatting issues and gets stuck in a reboot if you try to format your device but seeing the features provided by the device and developers promise to combat these issues, it’s a safe bet to try out the kernel anyways.
