Hi everyone,
I am Luca from France. Today, it's my birthday, I am already 16 and I got a Nexus 5 32GB.
I tried installing Hammerheadmon kernel (Download at: https://build.nethunter.com/nightly/...03-13-0514.zip ). I noticed it was based on ElementalX.
So I downloaded latest ElementalX nougat build for Nexus 5 ( https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=962187416754455497 ), and tried replacing "elex.zImage" by "zImage-dtb" of hammerheadmon kernel's zip.
After flashing the original hammerheadmon nethunter kernel, I flashed the modified ElementalX zip with hammerheadmon's zImage. And I successfully got my internal wifi card in monitor mode while my CPU was overclocked and undervolted.
I am running Unofficial LineageOS 14.1.
Download the 2 zips to flash below.

Note: You have to flash original Nethunter hammerheadmon kernel first in order to install all drivers. Obviously, you can't flash ElementalX edited zip first, because Nethunter kernel will replace you actual zImage-dtb in you boot partition that allows overclock by its own that doesn't.
PS: Congrats to @flar2 for developping ElementalX. I think it is amazing that in TWRP you can patch zImage for higher/lower voltages. I still haven't figured out how he managed to do that.

Edit : After thinking about it, I think ElementalX installer maybe does not edit zImage, but ramdisk only for frequency. It'd be really complicated to patch an ELF file. So it could mean that you don't need to flash the 1st zip first

Ever since I installed a custom rom on a closed-source Mediatek phone, I think EVERYTHING is possible lol

Please, we need a new kernel for Pie roms!

The exkernel base is awesome to overclock! For me is the only kernel on Oreo days!

I have the paid exkernel and is a bummer to loose Nexus 5 development...

Any good soul to work this for pie? I have the latest exkernel aroma installer for oreo in my folder.

Bro please add GPU overclock (650) in your kernel by which it is easy to play game like pubg smoothly. You can get the code for the same in true sight kernel 4.4 ( not updated from 2017 )
Sorry if any mistake

You have to look into the Nexmon repo and look if there is a option to apply it on a Oreo kernel

https://github.com/seemoo-lab/nexmon

I compiled a new Oreo kernel for NetHunter from the DirtyUnicorns github repo, but can't unfortunately release it here with hindsight of the general disregard of this amazing custom rom.

If you can find a usable repo with a according source, I would gladly give it a try.
