Nice. I only have 3 question:

1. After rooting, will I still recieve OTA updates when they become available with the new dev previews?
2. Can I use Clockwork recovery instead? My devices never play nice with TWRP.
3. I never flashed a custom kernel, is it any more dangerous than flashing a custom ROM? Can it irreparably ruin my phone? Does this kernel offer any advantage besides permissive SELinux?

1. Yes, it should (or if not, just flash system images / firmware images)
2. Yes
3. If you flash a custom ROM, the you flash a custom kernel. That's the logic. So basically it has the same risk of flashing a custom ROM. The kernel offers some tweakable features (it can be tweaked via an app)

I flashed @hellsgod kernel and got root. So there's like 3 kernels now that give root. Code blue has one too.

Also with this kernel I get about 6.5 hours sot cause standby is amazing now.

Android m root

I'm Running M as secondary rom through multirom(with lollipop as primary and Ubuntu )
If I change kernal will it apply to both android roms?
Will this be ok if it does?

Thx

You won't get updates. The md5sum has been altered

i dont know about kernal thing :D i just share the way with you guys

Kernel is the heart of your device. It processes all I/O's of your system. Consider it as a base platform or the foundation on which your Android OS works. To run any OS on the device there has to be kernel. Its a mediator between the hardware(device) and software(OS) ;)
