Working, but I'm facing major lags that I now notice once flashed the September Factory Image and on stock boot, so some things must have changed, or something is up with my setup.

    Hi, someone have 1.07 on october update ?
    Working fine for me.
    Yes, he's got to rebuild his building environment, then release a new update. Probably days, or weeks away.
    Yes, you need to unlock the bootloader to root or flash kernels
    Can you update the first post to reflect this information for others?
    Also, most of the op post is out of date. Last update was 11-2020..

    Thx, vandyman
    do I need to unlock the bootloader before installing this Kernel with the help of the ElementalX App?

EXKM can be used to configure settings, backup and flash zips and img files, run scripts and install kernel updates quickly and easily.

    It's incredible that still to this day only a tiny percentage of users have purchased my app. Missing out on so much over the years.
    Significant update to EX Kernel Manager version 5.70. Now you can choose a directory for kernel downloads and backups. This will make it a lot easier to access your kernel backups and kernel downloads.

    This required a lot of refactoring and new code, so let me know if there are problems.

    And yes, I will get to the new kernel builds soon
    The latest update of EX Kernel Manager adds backup and restore of dtbo.img

    I've also released kernel updates for the Pixel 3, 3a, 4, 4a, 4a 5G, 5, and OnePlus 6, 6T, 7, 7T, 7 Pro and Nord this month.

    So, if you want to support active kernel development, think about paying a few bucks for my app.
    I've spent many days trying to get a working kernel for Android 12 and June or later for Android 11 and I simply can't figure it out. I have no idea why my builds won't boot. Tried everything and I'm stumped.

    If anyone knows the secret, please let me know. Otherwise, I can't spend any more time on it, I have too many other things to do.
    There are two things to try:


    This resolves the issues at boot time with mini dump driver and its dependencies
