its a pity that we can't find readable changelog for simple consumers.
but its really great to have updatable open source.
still, it's kinda hard to choose which custom kernel to use, arter and erik aren't supporting 8 series so i'm kinda stuck what to use now, cuz anyway everything bloated with oneplus brain services and other shi.. oh well, that's another story
I might be able to shed a bit of light.
The QCom CrashDump Mode seems to be due to a kernel or dtbo mismatch, for example @mauronofrio and I noticed it when the kernel was updated between OOS versions but not in TWRP's .img. The solution was to always use the latest prebuilt stock kernel and use the one from India, IIRC.
So, if I had to guess why restoring a kernel backup might cause this issue, I'd probably think perhaps the user made that backup before getting an OTA or something, so once they went to restore it it wasn't for the correct OOS version anymore.
So none of that would be flar2 or EXKM's fault, but more on the end user for not understanding how their device behaves or updating their backups.
@czerdrill, @old_fart can you please report exactly steps how you backup and restore through the exkm app ( before getting crashdump)
Are you sure you didn't try to restore a backup from a previous oos ?

That's i believe the issue...
Most custom kernels are using custom dtbo
So users when they restoring stock kernel through your app the stock dtbo it doesn't be restored...
It will be very useful to add a dtbo.img backup ..
I go to kernel backup, click the saved backup i have and say yes to restore. I want to be clear i don't think it's ekxms fault either, it's something i did I'm sure. It's possible i restored from an earlier version although i make it a habit to backup after each update.
In another instance i restored the stock kernel and lost wifi and lte. Was only able to get them back after flashing elemental again.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong but was just sharing my experience.
