1. Install zip from recovery
2. Follow the instructions, if you don't know what to do, use the preselected options
3. Reboot

It is recommended to disable or increase the screen timeout in TWRP recovery. If the screen timeout is enabled in TWRP, there may be a black screen after exiting the Aroma installer. This is nothing to worry about. Simply hold power and volume down until it reboots. The installation will be fine.

Express installer

1. Install zip from recovery
2. Reboot

This installer goes without AROMA. And this recommended upgrade method from one repack to another.
It's take previous options, selected in AROMA before.
If you installing Repack in first time- use AROMA version.

New compression method use multistream compression for ZRam swap, which allow to use 1 swap device with several streams.
Most ROM's using several swap devices (usually 4).
In this kernel number of compression streams set to 4 with 1 device.
If you installing this kernel in first time- you should flash this file. It change number of swap devices to 1 and set swap to 820 or 625 MB*.

Swap file changer (820 MB)
Swap file changer (625 MB)

* Most MM ROM's have 820 MB of ZRam swap. Some (like JW) have 625 MB.


Thanks to flar2 for his awesome ElementalX kernel for various devices!
For tuning tons of kernel parameters- I recommend to use EX Kernel Manager from flar2. This program is definitely worth the money that asked for it

Not necessarily better. Just a different flavor with other options.
