Also I'm having a hard understanding, if kernel is the thing that manages the hardware and also responsible for lagfix then kernel is really what matters for the performance of the phone. How a ROM could improve phones performance?

Also one more questions:
As I understand CSC and modem are connectivity related files (3G internet, APNS etc) right? So its better not to touch them when flashing custom ROM/kernel?

Thanks a lot again!

Actually the kernel is a part of a ROM. So ROM is the necessary requirement along with kernel basically they complement each other

Now, if you flash a ROM, you change the whole system including the kernel. If you flash a kernel, you're only changing the core piece of your system.

Just a quick question. For instance, I am on my Poco f1 running pixel experience caf edition, and I will flash it with extreme kernel. When I update the Pixel experience caf through OTA because a newer version came out, will it affect my custom flashed kernel (extreme kernel)?
