The Motorola Photon Q is an interesting device. As one of the only mainstream smartphones released in the past year to feature both powerful specs and a slide out keyboard, it caters to a niche of users who still desire the feeling of physical keys under their fingers while enjoying all the latest games and applications. Development on this system has actually been quite robust, as both CWM and TWRP have made their way to it.
Now, in what many would feel to be a natural progression, XDA Forum Moderator arrrghhh (the same moderator who brought TWRP to the Photon Q) has released the first modified, custom, source-built kernel for the device. Featuring GPU and CPU overclocking as well as having been built with the infamous “Linaro” toolchains, the kernel’s feedback has been one of speed and smoothness. So if you’re a Photon Q 4G LTE user, stop reading this line, jump to the original thread, and give this beast a go!
