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

ElementalX is simple and clean. It does not have useless kernel patches or make dangerous or experimental changes to your phone that cause weird or inexplicable problems.

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

You should only flash ElementalX over the kernel that came with your ROM!!!

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.

Who's going to be the first to overclock :eek: , nice work flar!

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!

Don't forget to install Busybox after flashing SuperSU
