The Freedom Kernel for the Zmax Pro Z981 has been a lot of fun to work on. I’d like to thank Armando from Android Forums for his great work on the LineageOS 14.1 rom for which I made the Freedom custom kernel for. I set out to add value not only to the Lineage rom, but also to the user experience and I can confidently say mission accomplished. So without further ado, please enjoy. Many Thanks.
