Hey @flar2 when attempting to patch the zip file for 1.01 magisk fails to patch returning error unsupported/unknown image format. 1.00 went fine during this process.

Nevermind. I'm stupid sometimes. This is a zip not an image. Flashing now.

Nice to see the first custom kernel for the 3a. This will probably help me decide if I should get the device ?

I went ahead and bit the bullet on rooting and installing this kernel... I am amazed. The 3a is snappy as is but this is at another level. My 3a is noticeably snappier and overall smoother. Thank you!

Actually, I used Ex Manager from OPs instructions , it allowed me to flash the kernel zip.
Gotcha. Thanks.

    Is there any reason you don't publish just the boot.img? I would prefer not having an extra app installed on my phone just for a custom kernel. I like to patch the img with Magisk and flash it myself.

    EDIT: Just saw that the app costs $5. That'd be why.

    That would be wrong and I don't appreciate the insinuation. I didn't need to spend $700 on another phone and I don't need to spend my time and expertise to bring you new features. How many apps do you think I need to sell just to pay for the phone?

    To answer your question, I don't supply a boot.img because you also need the dtbo.img and I want to reuse the existing ramdisk so I don't break your other mods.
