Why does my kernel say that?
I've never flashed another ROM or a custom kernel and this is what my kernel shows.
I am unlocked and rooted on stock.

Pretty sure you are on the stock kernel Xeron.


This might be of interest to you. Someone in another thread had to use it to get rid of SU.

Thanks for this! I actually ran the tool and while it did get rid of SU from popping back up, my kernel stayed the same. But at least now I know that is isn't a custom kernel. Thanks!

Why would su change your kernel?

Sorry I think I missed one of your posts earlier. I was at work and distracted while trying to help you. Su is just administrative access. The application only manages what apps can and cannot have administrative access.

I have no idea how or why SU would change it. However, do you know how to get back out of it and have a normal kernel name?

What's wrong with your kernel name? Looks like a nice kernel name to me.
