Question [Q] Help with rooting and Kernels

Hi guys,

hope I am putting this question in the right area. I basically wanted to ask if it would be possible to root my HTC one, then NOT flash a new ROM, but only flash a new kernel. As I want to remain on stock, but get features like sweep2wake and DoubleTap2Wake; and maybe some features to help assist battery life.

Thanks in advance guys.

Yes it is. Unlock the bootloader, then flash a custom recovery, flash superuser ZIP and a custom kernel through it.

There is threads here how to root

Unlock bootloader first

Then download custom recovery TWRP

flash recovery and then flash kernel.

Easy as that.
