    I have a question for someone more tech savvy than myself. I am rooted and downgraded the Hboot because I was a leaker. ;-) I am wondering if it is possible to only update the Kernel and not flash a whole ROM? The reason I ask this is I would like to enable over clocking with just the stock Eris 2.1. Can you flash just a new Kernel?

    Thank you

    Yes, you can flash Zanfur's OC kernel (available on the XDA site) instead of a full ROM. How did you root... did you flash engtools?
