ElementalX Kernel
for Pixel 2 (walleye)


ElementalX is designed for maximum stability. It is made for people who depend on their phone every day.


Features:
-High Brightness Mode (HBM)
-Advanced color control (KCAL)
-Wake gestures (S2W & DT2W)
-Sweep2sleep
-CFQ, noop, deadline, FIOPS, SIO, BFQ, and zen i/o schedulers
-NTFS r/w support
-Option to disable fsync
-Block wakelocks
-WireGuard support



Installation
Flash zip in TWRP recovery

For this release I am using anykernel2 installer by @Osm0sis




Notes

EX Kernel Manager can be used to configure settings (and soon update or install the kernel quickly and easily).

High Brightness Mode Widget can be used to quickly toggle extra brightness for direct sunlight.

Sweep2wake and doubletap2wake are currently in testing, they may not be stable and could use extra battery in their current state. When these options are disabled (default) then you can safely use the kernel without risk of them causing problems.

Is the EX Kernel Manager not compatible with the kernel yet?

I open the app and theres only Elemental X, CPU Times, Battery Monitor, Settings and About in the left sidebar.
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but still those 5 items only.

EDIT:
Ok, I flashed stock boot, then Magisk, then EX kernel, all via the TWRP 3.1.1 beta.
Found out I lost root.
Reboot to TWRP, found out I lost TWRP.

Man! This Pixel 2 is hard to figure out.
Still don't understand the rules and order of flashing stuff on it.

EDIT2:
Went and go through the steps of fastbooting TWRP and installing TWRP again.
Then installed Magisk via the installed TWRP and now I'm stuck at the boot logo G with the animating line.

EDIT3:
Ok, wiped caches via TWRP and I got back into the OS!
Have root and the EX Kernel Manager is behaving as usual.
Flashing stuff just got harder.

Is the download page correctly labeled? It says the kernel is for the Pixel sailfish, not walleye.

Also, is it possible to just flash the .img via fastboot? Wouldn't like to install TWRP at the moment.

AndroidFileHost doesn't have a page for walleye

You don't need to install TWRP, just fastboot boot TWRP and then install the zip.
