Installation Method:
  1. Backup YOUR entire ROM in your favorite way
  2. Reboot in Recovery
  3. REFLASH YOUR ROM IF YOU WERE USING ANOTHER CUSTOM KERNEL ON YOUR CAF ROM
  4. Flash downloaded Zip File
  5. Reboot

Trouble Shooting:

Weird Battery Drainage?
  • Wipe Cache, Dalvik Cache from recovery and reboot
  • Let battery drain such that about 10% remains. Now charge via AC source till 100%.
  • Please make sure there is no rogue app in background draining battery.

NXTweaks is no longer supported Chaos 14.0 nightlies onwards.
Install Synapse app from Play Store. We have backend developed to support Synapse app!



NXTweaks FAQ:

What is NXTweaks?
NXTweaks is a core app for this kernel which gives many controls at your finger tips.
These controls will help you to easily customize interfaces developed in this kernel.
So as you won't need to use Terminal Emulator and echo commands!
Try it once, and you will love it.

Why not TricksterMod or other kernel apps?
I would recommend NXTweaks since there are many interfaces like hotplug control, limiter driver, etc
will only available in NXTweaks. Also, NXTweaks classify different controls in different tabs making easy
for you. If you still don't like NXTweaks, leave it alone as it is.

NXTweaks vs STweaks
NXTweaks app is same as STweaks app in Play Store, however NXTweaks is updated one to fix crashes and comparatively better UI.

How can I install NXTweaks?
It gets auto-installed once this kernel boots. If not, read below.

NXTweaks not getting auto-installed / NXTweaks not showing up in App Drawer
This issue can be faced by users with encryption where data partition is not easily available to inject script.
You can install manually from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2808

NXTweaks app showing "Kernel Not Supported"
This issue can be faced by users with ROMs other than CM11 due to missing bash binary.
You need to flash fix from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2921

Oh thanks, took me 4 hours to make fist standalone linaro-based kernel for Google device. The source code is very clean and neatly maintained by Google unlike Samsung folks. And took me another 4 hours to upgrade from 3.4.0 to 3.4.30... more to go.

I am on DroidKang ROM currently (love the features of it) However, felt experience can be maximized with custom kernel and so starts Chaos kernel project.
