    Every kernel I flash causes bootloop. I can't restore from recovery. So I use RUU and the unlock bootloader, then fastboot recovery. Then I'm able to restore my backup. But really all I'm trying to figure out is why every kernel I flash bootloops me. Am I not waiting long enough for it to finally boot? The VM bootscreen and audio jitter and then it reboots. Thanks in advance guys/gals.

    What ROM are you using and version of the kernel. There versions of both kernels for ICS and Jellybean. Super sick also has different versions for Sense and CM10.

    Super sick is built for AOSP based custom ROMs. Look on xda for jmz's ics kennel. It will work on stock. You'll need to flash the zip in recovery, then extract the boot.img from the zip and flash it in fastboot.

    Here's the link.

    I guess I'm just scared. Is it possible that the new HTC update is causing this

    The OTA update was causing this problem but since you flashed RUU that problem should be addressed. Make sure you are using the latest RUU for your HTC One V. I had this problem when I flashed my kernel first then the rom (after I had OTA).
