This custom kernel contains the usual goods such as Busybox, SuperSU, init.d support and all that and it's based off MK4 as you can see in the screenshot above.

  • Based off MK4
  • BusyBox
  • SuperSU included
  • init.d support
  • Auto-removal of KNOX apps after kernel installation
  • Battery tweaks for low battery consumption
  • EFS backup to your sdcard


This custom kernel is meant to be flashed on the GT-I9192 only! Do not flash this on other models as you can brick your phone. S4MiniArchive and the developer(s) will not be responsible for any damages caused.
