    Put the file on your sd card.

    adb shell
    su
    flash_image boot /sdcard/<filename>

    Yes, you can run other kernels on the sholes ROM from posts I have seen, but I'd suggest you wait, as the kernels that support CPU temp reading (Taz's kernels on Alldroid) have a defect that breaks how profiles work in setcpu.

    Never had an issue with Taz kernels and setcpu profiles.

    Same here, I have always used Taz's kernels and my profiles work fine, and yes I did verify that by plugging it into the charger and checking the bogomips, it went to 550 like I have it set in the profile.

    Now to the OP, if you don't know what adb is then you need to do some searching and learn how to install and use it. Alternatively you could just download a nandroid backup from taz's post at alldroid and flash it that way. When you go into sprecovery and select backup/restore you need to choose perform a advanced restore then choose backup, find the one you downloaded and then MAKE SURE that only Boot has a * next to it.

    You need to install the android sdk on your computer, then you open a cmd prompt, and cd to the directory you have adb in. If you haven't done any of that then just do the nandroid install option unless you want to take the time to learn.

    I know there is a few around, not sure if we have one here or not. Try searching for ADB and make sure it is a title search, but if you use google you should find some even better guides for it. Try either "Noob guide to android sdk" or "how to install adb", or whatever else like that.

    I was in the same spot as you, and a lot of people suggested going to rootyourdroid.info, which is a great general guide for this stuff. Specifically for ADB, the link is Android Debug Bridge | Root Your Droid
