ElementalX: Awesome Custom Kernel

It’s time to customize your android device in your own way, and choosing a custom kernel is an effective way of doing it. When an App wants the hardware to perform any task, it sends a request to the kernel which has the authority to give access rights.

What if we go for a better kernel suitable for our device? Yes this can definitely give you better performance results that always you want for your android device.

ElementalX is a good option if you are looking for a custom kernel, and it lets you customize every aspect of your CPU. With this, you get wide range of features like overclocking, undervolting, overvolting, and custom wake gestures like knock-to-wake and swipe-to-sleep. This lets you get the perfect mix of performance and battery life. We know battery tends to degrade when device gets older but using ElementalX, you are sure to get the most out of it just by tweaking some things, and it does this by making some little bit manipulations for you.   This kernel definitely has excellent governing capability for your device. Well thanks to the creator flar2, an XDA developer who gets the credit for this awesome custom kernel.


I will recommend you creating a backup using TWRP to save your apps and data. Now you are good to go, just download elementalX and redefine your device capabilities in your way. Please make sure that your device is rooted, as custom kernel doesn’t works if your device is not rooted.
