Hi there,

is there any chance to get the custom kernel update featute via json-Link like in FKM? I think thia is the main reason why many people choose franco kernel manager over Ex Kernel Manager, although EX KM looks a lot better and i actually like it more.

I've been planning on it, just very busy with my other apps these days

I finally got around to the update.

The new Flash Center screen has everything you need for flashing kernel stuff.

-import custom kernel JSON config (same format as FK)
-create custom kernel JSON config (for devs)
-backup, restore and flash boot images, dtbo images, dlkm images and recovery images (depending on whether your device has these partitions)

I added a "flash" button at the bottom of the kernel, dtbo, dlkm and recovery backup screens. From here, you can select an image file to flash to these partitions

Please note that adding a custom kernel config by selecting a file won't check for updates (because no update URL is provided). Adding custom kernel configs with a URL will check for updates daily and show a notification for new updates.

You can have as many custom kernel configs as you want

The big blue button at the top of Flash Center allows flashing any boot image, anykernel zip, Magisk modules or other recovery zip. It is recommended that you don't try flashing ROMs this way, for obvious reasons.

Thank you very much for the update. Please forgive me if I am overlooking the obvious (which I obviously am) but where do I find the backup functionality (ie back up my kernel or other images). I have looked everywhere in the app and can't seem to find it.

Tap "Flash" on the Dashboard, or select Flash Center from the navigation drawer. You'll see it on the Flash Center screen. Backup shortcuts are also listed on the Tools screen.

Interesting. I don't see that. No wonder I couldn't find it. Any idea why?

Forgot to mention. I am on a Moto 6 G5, stock ROM but rooted, Android 12. Let me know if there's some diagnostic information in addition that I can provide
You didn't receive the updatenwith Flash Center yet. Nevertheless, kernel backups (and dtbo, dlkm and recovery, if supported) have always been on the Tools screen. The only new thing is custom kernel JSON configs

Any idea why I am not seeing the backup functions?

Edit: I uninstalled/reinstalled. Play store showed that it was the version updated on 8/10. I still don't see the backup functions.

I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you don't have root.
I definitely have root. I don't know what to say either - would love for this to be able to work for me. I have an old phone and I see the backup functions on it. Must be something with this phone, but I have no idea as to what it can be.

Flash Center is for Lollipop and later. The only thing you are missing is the custom kernel JSON thing. There are no custom kernels using that update mechanism on pre-Lollipop devices, so you don't need it.

    EX Kernel Manager


    I get a lot of feature requests and questions for this app, so I've decided to make a thread here. Feel free to make feature requests, report bugs, ask questions or post useful information and feedback.





    EX Kernel Manager (EXKM) is the ultimate tool for performance tuning, maximizing battery life, tweaking color, sound, gestures and other kernel settings. EXKM gives you total control over your hardware with premium features and a beautifully optimized material design user interface.

    *** Your device must be ROOTED to fully use this app

    *** Universal! Compatible with all kernels and all devices.

    *** Works with stock kernel, however, some advanced features such as wake gestures, color and sound settings require a custom kernel

    Fully supported on the Google Pixel, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, HTC One m7/m8/m9, HTC 10, OnePlus 3/3T, Asus ZenFone 2, Samsung Galaxy S6/S7, Moto G4/G4 Plus, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and many other devices.


    Includes instant powersave mode and performance mode. Including widgets and quicksettings tiles (on Nougat)

    Dashboard: your homepage within the app, Dashboard summarizes your current settings and shows real-time CPU and GPU frequencies, temperatures, memory usage, uptime, deep sleep, battery level and temperature, governors, and i/o settings.

    Battery Monitor: the most accurate way to measure battery life. EXKM's Battery Monitor is designed to show battery statistics that you can use to improve battery life scientifically. EXKM Battery Monitor measures % battery use per hour and gives separate statistics for screen off (idle drain) and screen on (active drain). It automatically measures only when the battery is discharging so you never have to remember to reset the stats or create markers.

    CPU Settings: easily create, share and load CPU governor profiles for maximum battery life. Adjust max frequency, min frequency, CPU governor, CPU boost, hotplugging, thermals and voltage (if supported by kernel or hardware)

    Graphics Settings: Max frequency, min frequency, GPU governor and more.

    Advanced Color Control: RGB controls, saturation, value, contrast and hue, Save, load and share custom profiles. (requires kernel support, most custom kernels for Qualcomm devices implement this driver)

    Wake Gestures: sweep2wake, doubletap2wake, sweep2sleep, haptic feedback, camera gesture, wake timeout and more (requires kernel support). Asus ZenFone 2 gestures are fully supported.

    Custom User Settings: This feature allows you to add any kernel setting you want. Kernel settings are located in the /proc and /sys directories. Simply navigate to the desired path and you can quickly and easily add the setting to the app where it can be changed on the fly or applied at boot. Plus you can easily import/export your custom settings and share with other users.

    Memory Settings: adjust zRAM, KSM, lowmemorykiller, and virtual memory settings

    Sound Control: adjust speaker, headphone and mic gain. Supports elementalx, fauxsound, fanco sound control, and others (requires kernel support).

    CPU Times: Show CPU frequency usage and deep sleep, and optionally sort by most used frequencies.

    Update or Install ElementalX: Get notified and quickly download and install the ElementalX Kernel on your Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, HTC One m7, HTC One m8, HTC One m9, HTC 10 and OnePlus 3.

    Kernel Backup: save and restore kernel backups

    Many other settings: i/o scheduler, readahead kb, fsync, zRAM, KSM, USB fastcharge, TCP congestion algorithm, last kernel log, magnetic cover control, memory settings, entropy settings and much more!

    Other features: configurable, one-click Powersave mode and Performance modes, CPU temperature notification, language chooser (English, French, German, Dutch, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese), theme chooser, auto-powersave mode and more!

    Just got the new update from the Play Store. Liking the little visual differences, the graph behind the current frequencies, the little coloured wheels for battery and ram. Just finishes the look off a little bit better. Not noticed any functional differences yet but I've only had a quick glance through. Any specific functional differences between the new version and the previous?

    I made a lot of changes under the hood, optimizing code and improving things like device detection, and showing more info on the updater screen. There is also the advanced and simple modes, for people who are overwhelmed by a lot of settings. I have a lot more changes planned over the coming weeks.

    Soon. Actually, 3.08 is the one you guys should be waiting for. It's way faster and has a really cool new feature.
