    Download the kernel zip file, put it on the root of your sd card, reboot into recovery (hold volume down while powering up) wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, select install zip file from sd card, select file and hit the power button. It will run for a few seconds, tell you its done, select reboot and you are done!
    Check out Kings kernels, they are good, also netarchy. Kings plays nicer with my evo. Also be sure if you are running a havs kernel you either turn off the profiles in setcpu or uninstall it.

    Is HAVS only on BFS and not CFS? I'm not sure why I haven't read this anywhere in my hours and hours of research over the last month.

    Havs can be on either cfs or bfs. Look at kernel change logs to determine what it has and doesn't have.
