    Is there a Kernel for this phone developed by the devs, yet? I've looked through the guides and didn't seem to find one. I also read a thread that said there wasn't a modified kernel, however, it was outdated.

    I looked through that. It looked like it was rooting, recovery, and some other advice.

    You cannot replace kernels on these hones without having root access.

    Furthermore, you cannot replace the kernels on these devices with aftermarket kernels b/c the bootloader is locked and checks the validity of the kernel for a digital signature from Motorola.
