The ElementX EVO JB kernel is a modified replacement stock kernel for the HTC EVO 4G LTE running Sense 4+. While based off of stock, it includes modules that allow for making permanent changes to the system partition as well as overclocking and underclocking the phone.

Since Android Jelly Bean was released for the HTC EVO 4G LTE, we’ve seen a lot of work on patching what HTC and Sprint did wrong, and for the most part things have reached a state of usability and niceness again, at least in the root world.

While this is not a built-from-scratch custom kernel (HTC has not yetreleased the source code for the new kernel), it does fix a few bugs and provide functionality that has not been seen yet for Jelly Bean on the EVO 4G LTE.

The AROMA installer allows you to select whether or not you’re interested in installing the overclocking modules. If you are, you can clock up to 1998GHz using your kernel clocker of choice (they suggest the No Frills or Kernel Tuner).

If you try this out, be sure to make a nandroid backup and be comfortable with flashing kernels on your device before going in. This is fairly early kernel development, and you never know when you might end up with a New Year’s Brick.

Have fun with this kernel in the New Year and let us know how it works for you. As for me I’ll still be working on not writing “HTC EVO 3D” on my checks.
