So far when I flash EX kernel root stops working and when I reboot the phone to root it again kernel reverts back to stock. Is there a way to keep the kernel permanently?

works like a charm..only four cores show in exkm
How many more cores are there?

Chainfire's root for the Pixel/Pixel XL is live!

I'm running this kernel with root and it works great! A few small things in the EX Kernel app that still need to be implemented/fixed (@flar2 already knows), but so far after a few hours things are still solid.

How did you manage to get the kernel and root running at the same time? One removes the other for me. Is there a way to flash the kernel permanently?

You flash this kernel with:

fastboot flash boot IMAGE

Then the root boot image:

fastboot boot KERNEL_IMAGE

Make sure you leave off the flash part for the kernel.

Update!!

Changes for 0.05:
-add vibration control

Obviously you'll need root to play with this stuff.


Here's the procedure:

1. reboot to bootloader
2. fastboot flash boot_a EX-P-0.05.img
3. fastboot boot boot-to-root.img
4. Profit...

I just pushed an update to EX Kernel Manager. Version 2.93 fully supports the Pixel. It fixes the crash on the Graphics screen, adds vibration control, updates to work with all GPU settings, and fixes Kernel Backups.

If I flash the kernel without root, just to get Android pay working, what would be different from stock kennel? Sweep 2 wake and sweep to sleep are both on correct? Any scheduler/swap/zram/clock changes?

    Update!!


    Initial release for Android 8.0.0 Oreo. Everything is like the Nougat kernel, except the installation is tricky at the moment.

    Something changed with SuperSU and my old way of keeping root seems to have stopped working. I have not had time to investigate, and likely won't until TWRP and everything is settled. For now, you will need to install the stock boot.img, flash ElementalX, then flash the latest SuperSU (doing this in a different order will probably either unroot or restore a backup boot.img).

    I did not test with Magisk.



    Android 8.0.0 (Oreo)
    ElementalX-P-2.00



    Changes:
    -Oreo release

    Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate Christmas, and Happy Holidays to those who celebrate other traditions at this time of year.

    Thanks to everyone here. Looking forward to more great development in 2017.
