Do we still need a modified boot.img when using this kernel? And does it matter if we flash it over stock or ChainFire boot image?

As of alpha 0.01, this is a complete boot.img that includes Chainfire's modifications.

For future releases, I will reuse the existing ramdisk, which means you might need to flash Chainfire's boot.img first.

Flashed and successfully booted! I already sense the improvement! As a Nexus 4 owner I am so happy to finally be able to experience ElementalX for myself (even in a super-mega-alpha state). Thank you for your work!

Thanks a lot!! Flashed flawlessly. Just wondering, while it was flashing, it said "E:Find_File: Error opening '/sys/class/backlight.' Is that anything to worry about?
