no...


there will be no change in performance from the kernel side... u can ofcourse use "init.d scripts" to tweak the ROM but thats not directly kernel related, though this kernel will allow u to auto-run such scripts at startup...

also with this kernel u will be able to root ANY future firmware (GB atleast) as this kernel has the necessary codes to auto-root... so u wont need to hunt for pre-rooted system images which are huge (350MB+)

I had the same problem, I did't get the chance to install the driver. What I did was to go into fastboot before windows loads, I did it in bios setup to be sure, then boot to windows. Now it wil stay in fastboot and you can install the driver. Once the driver is installed you can enable fastboot at any time in Windows.

    one of the users ROG_ZX has tested it on his phone and its working fine!

    so users can now safely flash this kernel to auto-root their system!
