Haven't flashed a kernel yet for my one x because always find it too complicated. Mainly the repack and fastboot part. I've loocked but haven't found a kernel flashing review yet, anyone got a link to one?

How did you get 52 fps?
What Rom and set up are you using. Best I can get with gaming boost is 45 fps

It was on ViperX 3.2.4 when i was doing those tests with stock kernel since source wasn't released yet.
Anyway heres my review of Renovate and Viper roms + gaming boost + Kozmi kernel then XM kernel , after that i've tested with Viper 3.3.5 also kozmi XM and gaming boost.
1st XM kernel , quad locked to 1500 Renovate rom + gaming boost.
Quadrant scores: 3x of them = 1: 7096 , 2: 7122 , 3: 7155 ----- Viper Rom = 1: 6432 , 2: 6533 . 3: 6661
Antutu scores : 3x of them = 1: 14768 . 2: 14880 , 3: 14966 ----- Viper Rom = Pretty much similar 1st 2 scores last one was 15096 (thats when i changed *read ahead speed of SD* )
Epic citadel high performance , max res : 3x of them = scores 1: 49.6 , 2: 49. 3 , 3: 49.7 ( pretty accurate bench
) Viper: 1: 49.5 , 2: 49.9 3: 50.2
Gaming: NFSMW - was playable very nicely with little hickups at police car roadblocks.
MC4 - Also very playable better then stock for sure , also very smooth.
Shadowgun dead zone - No laggs at all ultra details
Wild blood - No laggs at all single player , and few little hickups online ( probably cuz of latency drops )
Viper Rom was similar as renovate , little bit slower on all games , some FPS drops.
Rom speed: incredibly fast and smooth. Viper rom: Also much much faster then with stock kernel , cept loading times of apps was faster on Renovate Rom.
ok now Renovate and Viper Roms Kozmi kernel quad lock 1500 (for Quadrant and antutu 1550 dunno about Epic citadel) + gaming boost.
Quadrant scores: 3x of them = 1: 7234 , 2: 7329 , 3: 7385 ----- Viper Rom = 1: 6481 , 2: 6611 . 3: 6737
Antutu scores : 3x of them = 1: 15020 . 2: 15095 , 3: 15244 ----- Viper Rom = 1: 15248 , 2: 15201 3: 15111
Epic citadel high performance max res : 3x of them = scores 1: 51.9 , 2: 52.1 . 3 , 3: 52.1 ( pretty accurate bench
) Viper: 1: 49.8 , 2: 50.6 3: 51.0
NFSMW - Smooth all the time
MC4 - Smooth all the time
Shadowgun deadzone - Smooth all the time
Wild blood - Also smooth all the time online and single player
Rom speed - Renovate - like on steroids no lag ANYWHERE , loading times of apps faster then before , literally instantenious for the very 1st time even faster after that.
Viper -- Also much faster then before but still with slower loading times then renovate. I guess thats cuz Viper is uberly tweeked compared to Renovate , still they both improved ALOT compared to stock Kernel.
Battery life, i can't judge that since i was using each rom with kernels avarage 40 mins but i can say this , with full quad lock all the time and gaming boost i've lost 20% of battery in around 25minuts of runing benchs on both roms same. As for heet they both seem to be very stable about heet. After that i've done same tests each of them 2x while on charger and XM kernel overheated the phone with 55C , kozmi kernel stayed at 50C while same usage. Also i forgot to mention both kernels performed well with internet speed and stability , everything worked great , as for XM kernel i had to repack that one with each roms since it wouldn't boot otherwise, on the other hand with Kizmo kernel i didn't need repack it worked on both roms without it perfectly , and i must add with XM kernel for some reason i had less ram on both roms then with Kizmo , probably cuz of repack. Anyway like i said earlier we can consider Kizmo kernel as unified kernel , which means you can flash any sense rom without repacking it as long as you flash the modules after the rom flash.
Sorry for poor *review* lol , don't forget it could perform differently on your HoX then mine since none chip is the same and my hox is also variant 3. Anyway i hope this helped to those who were wondering about these 2 kernels
