Par for the course at XDA is to customize our devices. This includes a custom theme or a custom ROM with different launchers, layouts, and color schemes. However, an important part of a device’s firmware and software package is the kernel. The kernel is like salt in a recipe for cookies. You don’t notice when it’s working fine. But when it’s not, you notice.

In today’s video, XDA Developer TV Producer Kevin talks about the unsung hero of Android. He gives a basic overview of what a kernel does. Then Kevin talks about a few custom kernels on XDA and what they can provide for you. So if you want to learn more about the kernel, check this video out.
