Now firstly, what is a kernel? Well, let me brief you a little bit about this.
The kernel is a computer program at the core of a computer's operating system with complete control over everything in the system. It is an integral part of any operating system. It is the "portion of the operating system code that is always resident in memory". It facilitates interactions between hardware and software components. On most systems, it is one of the first programs loaded on startup (after the bootloader). It handles the rest of the startup as well as input/output requests from software, translating them into data-processing instructions for the central processing unit. It handles memory and peripherals like keyboards, monitors, printers, and speakers.
The critical code of the kernel is usually loaded into a separate area of memory, which is protected from access by application programs or other, less critical parts of the operating system. The kernel performs its tasks, such as running processes, managing hardware devices such as the hard disk, and handling interrupts, in this protected kernel space. In contrast, an application program like browsers, word processors, or audio or video players use a separate area of memory, user space. This separation prevents user data and kernel data from interfering with each other and causing instability and slowness, as well as preventing malfunctioning application programs from crashing the entire operating system.
The kernel's interface is a low-level abstraction layer. When a process makes requests of the kernel, it is called a system call. Kernel designs differ in how they manage these system calls and resources. A monolithic kernel runs all the operating system instructions in the same address space for speed. A microkernel runs most processes in user space, for modularity.
This central component of a computer system is responsible for running or executing programs. The kernel takes responsibility for deciding at any time which of the many running programs should be allocated to the processor or processors.
So in other words, you can make your phone run at an optimized speed and having the power to manage it all in a singular manager app! (Magisk Manager App is highly recommended intended to take over the #superuser requests). If you want to tweak your android and turn it into an absolute beast, you should definitely have a go and flash your current ROM!
If you are worried your phone might turn out not the way you wanted it to, fear not, click this link here so you can check out the full detail on the No-Gravity Custom Kernel itself. If you know what you are doing, then flashing your current ROM is definitely safe and worth having a go at. All the links for the downloads are available there too :)
