Interesting so I could flash the latest stock factory image, unlock bootloader, flash recovery, kernel zip, then supersu?

You may be able to dirty flash the kernel over elex. You would then have to reflash systemless su.

If this causes bootloops it can be fixed by dirty flashing your rom. Then kernel then su.

I don't think you can flash the stock image with a locked bootloader. Reverse the first two and you're good to go. Know that unlocking the bootloader will wipe the entire device internal included. Backup everything to your computer first.

Flash your rom first then this kernel. If you're on stock then the way I do it is to fastboot system.img, boot.img then boot into system just to make sure everything is working. Reboot into bootloader, flash twrp.img and then go into recovery from bootloader without a reboot. Flash kernel, superSU reboot and done. Sounds complicated but it only takes a few minutes. If you have a rom with system root then that's another story. You'd have to unsu first from what I understand but I don't have that so I don't really know the exact process.

@david.degraw54 Fifth line up from the bottom, stock rom is his preference.

So if I'm on another kernel and want to go to this one, or if I'm on this one and want to go to another, I don't need to flash system only boot.img? That would certainly save me time if I ever want to switch around.

And why he should reflash also recovery?? ElementalX use the ramdisk that come with the rom, 99% a stock one.
So for installing this kernel, the easier thing is to flash boot, kernel and then supersu..

My twrp recovery sometimes doesn't stick. I figure as long as you're in bootloader it wouldn't take much time and wouldn't hurt. I've gotten burned by stock recovery a couple of times with a force reboot. And it looks like you can skip the system.img flash according to the OP. I thought some of these kernels make modifications to the system at some level and always thought it was best practice to flash the rom (system.img in this case), boot.img, then new kernel and superSU. Maybe that's old school though.

Understood.. But is not very clear how to install this kernel and be sure 100% of doing good..
I'm on stock but with cataclysm (mod) installed + elementalx kernel..
Elementalx use rom ramdisk so stock ramdisk, in my case..
So what I have to do ? Should I simply flash boot.img , kernel and then systemless SU?
Franco, the installation guide is a bit dispersive I think . 1-2 points are OK but the others ? Cm based rom is a NO and OK.. But in my case, what is the correct procedure ? You lacknthe point when we have to install the kernel! Or is point 3 once we figured if our rom come with system or systemless root?
Obviously mine is not a polemic, but I'm seeing some problem knowing the right procedure to install the kernel

There's no need to flash system.img, otherwise it would be written in the OP.
