Nice! New kernels to play around with

Quick question: Can I flash this over ElementalX without having to dirty flash my ROM?

Just flashed it over PA. So far so good! Will be reporting back in a few days on the kernel's overall performance and battery life.

The reason I ask this is because the ROM I use comes with ElementalX. So, I'm not sure what I'm really suppose to do
