Ahhh okay thank you for your reply. Can I make any changes to ElemetalX functions from within the OS? I'm trying to figure out what all I can do with it. I'm also trying to find some other cool stuff I can add to my phone. Being new to all this I am sure there is a lot I don't know about. I have been reading up on Exposed and see there is some cool stuff you can install with it. I'm just trying to figure out what some cool options would be.

********How can I uninstall ElemetalX and flash Bricked-Kernel instead? I want to try that one as it has faux123 sound control built into it. I am having a hard time hearing calls and stuff on my Nexus 5

Kernels flash over each other. However with custom kernels its best to reflash the rom or restore a Nandroid backup first.

First thing to do is to read all the sticky threads

Thanks for your help I really appreciate it. Sorry for all the questions. I'm just trying to get the hang of all this. I restored my backup of the stock ROM. Then I flashed the latest nightly build of CM. I used the signed kk gapps from 1/05/2014 I believe it was. I can't remember if that was the right date but I think I'm close. I'm not at home right now to check. However, it was the latest one that was showing and I think it was def from January. Anyways after flashing CM nightly and gapps I have a couple doubles of the same apps. There are two that I spotted so far. There is two camera apps and two calendar apps. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong like flash the wrong gapps? Can I just uninstall the two Google versions of those apps and flash my kernel now? Thanks again for your help.

It doesn't matter what date the gapps package was put together. The reason you have two camera apps and two calendar apps is because the gapps package/or the ROM you flashed had the AOSP camera and AOSP calendar, then when flashing the other .zip/installing from Play Store it installs the Google variant. You can have AOSP camera and Google camera installed at the same time, i.e. the same with the calendar.

Flash your kernel, it should be fine.
