Unfortunately, it doesn't work with PixelExperience CAF 9.0 (20190509) ROM = black screen after OnePlus logo.

I have a hard time with restoring my phone in TWRP 3.3.1.0, after restoring it stops on Google animation from Pixel Experience ROM.

Solution:
- Dirty flash Pixel Experience ROM
- Flash Magisk (you can probably skip this step)
- Restore your backup in TWRP again
= WORKS

What is your AnTuTu score on OOS 9.0.2 with EX kernel 5.0 after OC?

Yes, but I'm still very interested to see how the performance comparison looks like between the latest OOS and other custom ROMs (in this case Pixel Experience CAF). Please share your results! :)

Why do you think Antutu score is the a good measure of performance on a device? My wife's OP6 has almost twice the score of OP3 in Antutu but I don't see 2x speed difference in app opening or other day to day tasks. Both on stock Pie OOS.
And why on earth would you OC a device who already has bad thermal management?

OK, I will use a thermometer (sarcasm).
Do you know what benchmarks are used for? (Do not reply)

Yup, I certainly do know what benchmarks are. it's mostly for fools who put their trust in "benchmark scores" over real life experience, strictly talking about mobile devices here.
Once you start focusing more on real life performance, you will notice how meaningless benchmarks are, especially Antutu, the piece of crap benchmark. I would still rely on Geekbench benchmark score for CPU Single/Multi core scores and to know how capable a processor is. But the reality is, the OEM skins and how Android is tuned by an OEM makes all the difference.
IMO, the custom CAF Pixel Experience should be significant smoother than OOS based Pie. Pie is just the first OOS "public release" build and isn't as polished as Oreo OOS is. If you don't need any OOS Pie features, I would suggest using NLOS or custom Pie ROMs instead. But don't put much faith in Antutu score, it's not the correct measure of how smooth or fluid your device will perform. Kernel optimizations, system optimizations, scheduler optimizations etc will result in much better overall system UI performance, which Antutu can't measure. :)

So happy and appreciative to see that you updated your kernel (super quickly) for oos pie!

I'm getting the best SoT and deep sleep out of any kernel I have tried on this device (and I've tried almost every single one) while still being super stable and with smooth performance.

I've been using your kernel ever since I got my Nexus 5 (and N7 2013). Got so much respect and appreciation for you and everything that you do. Thank you for all the years of sharing the fruit of your hard work so generously with us all. Cheers to you @flar2! :)

Thanks a lot for the great work, @flar2 !

Will there be an express.zip-file of the kernel to flash after each OS update so that settings are being kept?
Thanks for your answer! :)

So this won't be working with LineageOS? Previous versions of ElementalX used to work with Lineage. Why not this one?

Facing white led and black screen issue after updating to Magisk 19.3. Had to uninstall Magisk completely to boot normally. Asked the same in OOS thread and got to know that users with stock kernel had no such issues.
unlocked bootloader

Hello @flar2

Thanks for your great work and support here.

I noticed an issue on the latest kernel v5.00
Upon installation, I selected "no swipe to sleep gestures" in the aroma installer.

Despite that, the default "swipe to left in the nav bar area to sleep" remains active! Tried many times to reinstall...

This is particularly annoying when navigating between projects in Tasker, I often unintentionally put the phone to sleep...

I remember someone mentioning here a similar issue with the I/O scheduler in kernel v5.00.

Probably a root cause to both issues?
(Although I/O scheduler is tunable with the manager app, this is not the case with swipe-to-sleep)


Thanks in advance for your help

He mentioned that the settings chosen in the Aroma installer aren't necessarily considered when flashing the kernel. I suppose that is the reason.

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



    Notes

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

    You can also use my free app Button Mapper to configure the navigation buttons.
