Does anyone know what the Experimental kernel does?There are no informations about it in the OP of the Rom...I downloaded it but it appears to be for the Nexus 5...What is the difference between this kernel and the rom-kernel???

After updating to the latest Mahdi rom and backing up what I had, I flashed the experimental kernel and wiped cache/dalvik.
It wouldn't boot, so I had to restore what I had.
No idea what it was supposed to do.

Yeah, if it said it was for the nexus, it wasn't going to work. Kernels should be device specific, and I am very skeptical of those that have been supposedly ported over, rather than compiled from the device's kernel source and then updated with new options.

Experimental in regards to kernel devevelopment means there are probably issues beyond the norm.

The filename is Mahdi-Hammerhead-exp-4.4.2-v1.7-23-03-2014.zip, but I thought that just meant it was somehow derived from the Nexus 5. Don't know why it would be posted in the Mahdi rom OP if it didn't have a chance of working.
