Default What am I doing wrong (Faux kernel flash causes bootloop)

Hi Folks,

Some more advice would be appreciated.

I have my HTC One X running nicely on Leedroid but wanted to install the Faux kernel as I'm reading good things about that.

I downloaded Faux from here:

[Kernel] (004 beta 5) Hybrid (DVFS-UV Control/CPU_G/LP/AVP/EMC) [Jul-06] - xda-developers

I did recovery etc.

I then did:

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot


But the phone gives me Bootloop. I tried using CWM to erase Dalvik Cache in case the fastboot erase cache wasn't working. But still got bootloop.

In the end I gave up and reflashed the previous boot.image file (using same fastboot flash boot boot.img process as above).

And this has resolved my Bootloop.

But any ideas what I did wrong when trying to flash the Faux kernel in that might have caused my bootloop?

Is the faux kernel compatible with UK/International HOX's?

Or does a kernel flash require extracting the ROM again from the SD zip file so the ROM is built upon the current kernel?

Cheers,
Alan

Thanks Shauny,

I'm a bit embarrassed by that, but in my defence I think I've read so many of these instructions recently they're blending into one.

Just tried again, following the instructions more carefully and it's worked this time.

Will keep an eye on it to see if I can see an improvement. But hey regardless, I just changed my first kernel successfully - so it's all good.

Thanks mate.

Alan
