Zeta_Chromium kernel is a Nexus 5 custom kernel.

However, its functionality is rich but stable.

My desired kernel must be the most stable and smooth running, so I don't consider any over-clocking or CPU overload.

Because I want a usable kernel only without performance consideration, I created this custom kernel.

[COLOR="Red"]I won't assume responsibility for any problems caused by this kernel.[/COLOR]

This kernel uses your own ramdisk. During installation, it will automatically perform both unpacking and repacking.

For convenient installation and display of content, I chose the Aroma installer.

If you want to use F2FS follow this thread
F2FS (born Flash-Friendly File System) - file system, focused on the use of flash memory!
And if you want to use my kernel on F2FS , first you must install this thread's kernel!
