    Before doing anything .. NANDROID backup. I do not use Rom Manager as I have not had much luck with it. Here we go.....Just download it as a zip file...put it on your SD...reboot into recovery..then select zip from SD card..then highlight the correct zip file you want.....choose it and you will get a list of no's and a single yes to choose from...choose yes and let it do it thing. I just put Kings Kernel #5 on my incredible running Skyraider3.3.2 and the above is the exact way I did it..No wipes...all is good. Hope this helps.

    Can this be done from ROM Manager? For instance, I have the new HTC Kernel saved to the root of my SD Card .... Can I just choose to "Install ROM from SD Card" like I do for ROMs normally and choose the kernel zip and not check the wipe data/cache or backup option and it will install fine?

    Or is there another way to do this from ROM Mananger?

    EDIT: It appears this works, but from my research it seems better to do it in Clockwork so you can clear the dalvik cache before installing the new kernel.

    In my experience it just goes "over" it. You don't lose anything.
