ElementalX has useful and well-tested features that make your phone better.

Love the ElementalX paid app,

used to modify screen colors and set it currently to RGB (237,235,255) and really becomes noticable.
Much cooler whites while still keeping the colors really vibrant.

Can anyone confirm if the flash works fine. I'm away from a computer right now so I won't be able to flash a boot IMG.

Edit: Going to try out the KCAL control and see if I can make the whites a bit cooler.

For the moment, you'll have to modify the command line in the boot.img for over/under clocking.

Tomorrow I will finish the full installer so freqs can be selected.

Super glad to see you here! Had been using ElementalX throughout on my (now retired) Nexus 5. Now that I have moved to 6P, I have a couple of questions -

1. Are the verity checks in kernel disabled, or will be notified at boot if the system image has been modified in any way?

2. To root (the normal method, not the new systemless method), all I need to do is just flash the SuperSU zip & it should work, correct?

Thanks in advance mate!
