[QUOTE=vampirefo;72615786]This requires a lot of work.
1. Google kernel source.
2. Build bootable kernel
3. Unlock bootloader
4. Boot kernel with 5.1 ramdisk.
5. Use adb to pull boot.img and recovery.img
6. Download TWRP source modify source for intel
7. Make device tree
8. Unpack recovery.img use that kernel in your TWRP.
9. Make boot.img permissive, remove encryption repack and flash.
10. Flash TWRP.
11. Flash system mode SuperSU for root.

Thanks for taking the time to post this.
To familiarize myself with Linux, I created a persistent linux Mint 17.2 Mate 64 bit on a 32 gb usb thumb drive before I decide to commit my windows machine for a linux install.
I installed oracle jdk and android studio thinking this was the build environment needed to do this. the twrp compile forum makes no mention of what to do in this case. I must have been wrong? I don't think I need this to download and build android kernel sources and twrp source?
I'm now very doubtful about even tempting to do this. Yes, a lot of work just learning the basics of linux, let alone following the steps you give in your basic outline. I don't want to give up so easily, but the learning curve is steep.
So one just uses terminal commands to setup and download aosp and twrp git repositories and to make them? Also, is there any way to backup my device system, boot and recovery without root in linux or windows? I have used the adb pull command to backup the system directories to my windows computer, but don't know how to do it for other partitions, if possible.
I found this kernel building guide for arm and mediatek devices. would this be similar for Intel using the right repositories?
