@thicklizard Can anyone confirm that the Lollipop version of the kernel can be flashed on S-ON devices?
Would I run into a problem if I downloaded the kernel directly to my device, rebooted into TWRP, and tried to flash it from there?
Sorry for the noob question. New to changing kernels and I can't find the directions for just installing a kernel, not installing a whole new ROM.
My M7's current state: S-ON, Rooted, TWRP 220.127.116.11, Unlocked Bootloader, 5.02 Sense 6 Bad Boyz ROM, baseband 1.01.20.1225, build (radio?)# 6.16.651.2, current kernel 3.4.10-g705d141and@ABM011 #1 SMP PREEMPT , Sprint

Since posting this, have you updated to a Lollipop ROM and upgraded thicklizard's kernel to the Lollipop version? Are you still S-ON? Did you just download the kernel to your phone, reboot into TWRP, and flash it from there? I'm new to this, any help as far as steps you took to get the kernel running would be welcome.
Much appreciated. Just flashed it from TWRP. Wiped the cache/delvick. Success. The main thing I wanted was dt2w, which I remember you said was enabled by default and have tested it and it works without any configuration. I will probably try Kernel Toolkit first only because it looks simpler and less intimidating than Trickster, but I might install Trickster later. Do you have set CPU frequencies or other setting values that increase battery life on the m7? Are they also defaults, or do they require the user to change them? Also, how does the swipe to sleep work? I can't figure it out. I've tried swiping from the top, from the bottom, and from the sides.

The dt2w is great. It makes my phone feel like a fancy m8 or m9!
Haven't noticed a difference in battery life. Left it on the default cpu setting.
Using Nova launcher, so maybe that affects the swipe to sleep features that I can't seem to figure out?? Oh well. Good kernel. Thanks @thicklizard for the work, and for actively monitoring this thread
