Debian testing currently only has 5.  It might still be possible to get 
4 in Debian stable.  But I remember, when I was last using 4, that it 
was quite frequently broken by packaging errors.  Anyway I'd prefer to 
use 5 with a newer kernel if possible.  Ultimately IMO we have to target 
upstreaming and using the mainline kernel.

You can also try the 4.4 kernel but I would not look into older ones. 4.6-rc* did not boot on the GTA04 (while it boots on OMAP5) during my recent tests, but I haven't looked deeply enough into it. Also something for the hacking weekend...

Ah great, thanks.  So, to be clear, you are recommending 4.5?  [1] 
(Understanding that this is for experiments like mine and possibly not 
for full phone operation.)
