With Deck’s CMX, ParanoidAndroid, and AOKP sporting Jelly Bean versions for the HTC EVO 4G LTE, we’ve been pretty much stuck with the development kernels they ship with. Being in development, these are a pretty safe, un-clockable, dull-edged choice. However, Komodo is a new custom kernel that allows for overclocking, gives extra RAM, and basically breaks new ground in the EVO 4G LTE Jelly Bean AOSP world.

With Komodo you can overclock your JB ROM to 1.89GHz if you want to wring some more performance out of your phone. The IO schedulers are all optimized for flash devices, eight CPU governors should be able to put the phone in whatever responsiveness/battery sipping state you require, and there’s a lot more that the kernel can do.

The kernel does require a Jelly Bean ROM, so if you’re not on any of the JB builds for the EVO 4G LTE, this isn’t for you. If you’re S-ON, you’ll need to flash it either via Fastboot, Flash Image GUI, Dumlock, or some other fashion.

If you flash it, let us know how it works for you – I’m not running JB at the moment, as I need my Sense 4.1 camera more than I care to admit.
