View Full Version : Building Nethunter from source with custom kernel?

2015-01-11, 11:37
Is there a possibility to use a custom kernel in the .build-script for Nethunter? I want to replace the stock kernel with this one just for testing if it works on android 5.0.1: https://github.com/discipuloosho/ElementalX-Nethunter.
I know that i would need FROZENKERNEL=1 but how about LOCALGIT?

Install it after nethunter via fastboot:

First I installed the Kernel via Fastboot after i flashed my own rootfs-build from source which brought my phone into a bootloop. After i reflashed stock 5.0.1 i flashed the official nethunter 1.1.0 which also ended with a bootloop.
Then i managed to get into Fastboot with Nethunter still installed and flashed the kernel which then let me boot normaly. But i get lots of random reboots and can't get the Elementalx app to work: "Elementalx" has stopped.
I'm also unable to restore backups because of the reboots which occur everytime i want to restore the data. The old Flashable zip from you worked btw, but it had less features.

I'm working on new ElementalX kernel, in the maintime you must install @binkybear Lollipop Nethunter kernel. When ElementalX-Nethunter is ready, i announce.
The initial ElementalX kernel i set max cpu frequency to 2956Mhz, but device overheated and reboot. When i upload new kernel version will be stable. See you.
