Colorbanding defeated

Hall of Fame I
So as of today the 21.03.2021 color banding has been defeated. Now at the beginning I was under the impression that the crappy color banding was caused by pixelworks and guess what?
It wasn't.
Infact the reason this happened was actually because of ASUS not wanting to implement any type of gamma correction at all, while other manufacturers like nubia and oneplus have infact added gamma correction in their kernels. So today I simply stole some code from Oneplus 8 kernel like the naughty naughty boy I am and magic has happened. So what are the results of this?

Now as you can see the difference is absolutely insane. Blacks have returned, no pixelation and the screen looks absolutely georgous! Honestly this screen after calibration seems absolutely amazing, ASUS was not lying when they said that these panels are actually high quality. Granted the quality of the screen cannot be seen in those pictures very well as smartphone cameras have great difficulty catching stuff in the dark with huge amount of details. I took a closer shot as well to show that even the black crush is quite in check as well:

How exacly an absolutely new guy like me who has extremely little experience with kernel development could fix an issue i looked at in weeks while the experienced asus team didn't get the solution until this date is beyond me right now. I hope that the devs will fix it very soon now that they know they can simply nab code from nubia or oneplus and some modifications, today my SSD died with my ubuntu and kernel sourcecode on it, so only thing I have left is a flashable zip file that would most likely crash on 75% of rog3 devices due to extreme amount of undervolt, i will still share to those who want to try, but successrate won't be high :'D
At this point I want to thank Freak07 for introducing and helping me to get into kernel development much faster than I would have taken by myself.

Great work! @Danishblunt.
Looking forward for your .143 based kernel. 🙂

@Danishblunt Can you please DM me for instruction how?? Thank you.

I can't understand why there is no mod write on this topic .. they should inform the development team of this good result and apply this solution in future updates!

Omg this danish guy is a big time scammer.....

He did nothing ....

Tell the truth @Danishblunt brother...

Else I have to make a separate thread with proofs expose you...

How can you take a credit of someone else's hardwork...??

I knew that you know nothing about tech...when you said u can't use air triggers after flashing kirasakura...kernel.

Where is that proof thread of yours? I'm actually waiting for it.

I hope asus can release this kernel, it would be better than rog 5 cause I heard s888 overheats alot, s865 on rog 3 is better cause tsmc built is more stable.
I have global version still under warranty so can't really flash mine yet...
