no...


there will be no change in performance from the kernel side... u can ofcourse use "init.d scripts" to tweak the ROM but thats not directly kernel related, though this kernel will allow u to auto-run such scripts at startup...

also with this kernel u will be able to root ANY future firmware (GB atleast) as this kernel has the necessary codes to auto-root... so u wont need to hunt for pre-rooted system images which are huge (350MB+)

one of the users ROG_ZX has tested it on his phone and its working fine!

so users can now safely flash this kernel to auto-root their system!
