    My understanding is that a nandroid will not restore a kernel, that is, whatever kernel you have at the time you flash a nandroid is the kernel you will have after restoring. You would need to reflash another kernel to install something else.

    It appears that using ODIN is the preferred way of flashing back to stock. The stock firmware file for use with ODIN will include the stock kernel.
