Do not ever call yourself as a flashing maniac if you never tried flashing a custom kernel. You might have flashed Magisk root or a custom ROM. However, without ever trying a custom kernel your life would be miserable.
Users of Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 can now be happy. The most efficient custom kernel for the device that has codename Lavender is finally available.
Meet Evira Kernel, a custom Android kernel developed by an XDA member known as Resurrect.
Unlike any other kernel builds that put focus mainly on improved system performance, Evira focuses on system stability and efficiency.
In case you didn’t know it yet, a kernel is an important component of an operating system. Its main duty is to communicate with system hardware with languages it can understand.
Shortly, it is a translator to help an operating system which in this case is Android communicating with all the hardware components (chipset, CPUs, GPU, camera, modem, etc).
A custom kernel is a set of instruction crammed within a single kernel to manipulate or to modify how a device will behave.
Basically, anyone with a proper programming language can do it manually. However, this could be arduous. There are so many variables, lines, and parts to read and to grasp.
Flashing a ready-to-use kernel is the solution. There are many builds of custom Android kernels.
Redmi Note 7 users can try Evira.
Within its latest version, Evira sports latest CAF Patch LA.UM.7.2.r1-07000-sdm660.0.xml. CAF stands for Code Aurora Forum which is a special Android development community for Qualcomm-powered devices.
Unlike AOSP Android that is built generic for all devices, CAF is optimized for Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
Evira kernel simply brings its latest patch within its build.
Despite that fact, Evira kernel is compatible to run side-by-side along with any ROMs: the official MIUI, LineageOS, Xiaomi.eu, Havoc, Pixel Experience, etc.
