No need to tell about what is kernel and what it do . because almost everyone know these days about kernel and its working process.
So with this kernel you will get twrp 3.2.1 (Latest build) which i have moded to work with MTP devices.
More ever in some devices Data in encrypted automatically. Forcefully data encryption is disabled in this kernel.
Just simply turn on your device, wait for viberation and white led. then press Vol+ OR Vol- button to enter recovery mood Both will work.
This is intial release of this kernel, will update it with more features time by time.
wait for next release with more useful mods and features
To flash this kernel simply install Fastboot and ADB drivers and use flashtool in fastboot mood OR
install ADB and Fastboot drivers,
Then put boot.img in adb and fastboot home path and Or switch off your device and press Vol+ button and attach usb cable
