    Every ROM you flash includes a kernel. The only time you'll have to flash one is if you'd like to try a different one

    You are both right and wrong. :D

    You are on the newest HTC kernel on skyraider but it was included in the rom. When you wipe system you delete the kernel as well so the rom has to have kernel or it wouldn't boot for you. Most roms do not come with a stock HTC kernel.

    its there. if it didnt have a kernel you wouldnt have a functioning operating system :eek:

    IIRC,skyraider mostly did stock,and tweaked stock roms,and i believe it comes with an HTC kernel. im not sure if the kernel is modded,or stock.
