Hey guys. My gs3 is running jellybean 4.3 and its rooted with saferoot. Everything is fine but I want a little more performance. Is there a way I can flash a custom kernel and make it faster or do I have to flash a ROM and then flash the kernel with safestrap? Any help will be great

You need to flash the kernel modules, you don't mess with the kernel at all. It'll brick the phone.
