Mako (Nexus4) Status update, war on washed out colors
After a whole lot of bashing to just a lot of bashing to lesser bashing the PA mako kernel is down to ZERO bashing, a couple of hours at least. Hope it stays that way. : P
Here's the commit in case other developers want to try: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/lge-kernel-mako/commit/0226d7623e70190c57e92f6b6195b768fbd6b326
You get vivid colors without over saturation, almost true blacks, brightest whites, very little banding (still work to do in the darker grays). Might need some RGB tweaking still but TricksterMod is your friend. In short, your old washed out Nexus 4 will look like a new device, and without making it look like an overblown AMOLED. The difference is literally night and day.
You will not get this by tweaking RGB or amp0 & 1 alone. It's using all 9 gamma channel values, mixing LG's original settings with Googles anti-banding presets, but without cranking the gamma as they did. It took much tweaking to befriend these two.
Here's the downloads:
2nd revision, 2nd variant, darker gamma, richer colors:http://www.mediafire.com/?q3923x9hvtqyd2i
2nd revision, 1st variant, brighter than 2nd variant, less saturation:http://www.mediafire.com/?39248x6ueuoirrg
Should in theory work on any Mako ROM. 05Feb has been re-uploaded aswell with these settings.
One last thing, uninstall fauxclock for now if you want to try this. Every screen-off and you're back to wash-out otherwise.
for those that still like the stock kernel better, which i think will be close to impossible: http://goo.im/devs/paranoidandroid/roms/mako/pa_mako-GoogleStockKernel.zip
