    I'm guessing you are using Bekit's kernels...right? If so, you just install it (through ROM manager) and it will not take off your theme...it just writes to the boot partition.

    Okay, so you will not be using ROM Manager for this (I though you were running NexTheme on Cyanogen). Is the kernel in "update.zip" format? If so, you just apply it as you would any update.zip file.

    Basically, whatever the method you have to apply the kernel, it is going to write to the boot partition...not the system...so your theme will remain intact.

    Also going off UBRocked, if you're using say Chevy or Adamz Kernels, just rename it to "update" and update it using clockwork recovery mode. I'm currently using Chevy's 7-Slot Medium Volt running 900mHz. My temps aren't high, highest I've seen was 111F. But somehow Droids are still different so it's what works for you....

    ok. so as long as it is in zip it will not overwrite my other roms? lol. spent three hiurs last night reading om rooting before i did it. dont want to have to do it again.
    ok. and i used rom manager to install the nextheme rom last night. should i use rom manager to do the kernel as well?

    Nope it'll just affect the Kernel within the phone. It won't affect the ROM. They're two different things basically lol. It'll be better to use Clockwork Recovery and do the "update.zip" like UBRocked said....

    never used clock work. i can run update.zips from rom manager. or at least i had nextheme rom as update.zip and used rom manager for it. and it worked just fine. if thats not a good idea can someone give me some info on clockwork.

    You could do that I believe, but in ROM Manager you can reboot into recovery. Just make sure the Kernel you have is renamed to "update" and is the only file that is named that way on the root of your SD. In Recovery its usually the 2nd option that says "apply sd card: update.zip" hit that, then reboot and your done....

    I use Chevy MV (7-Slot) 1000mHz. I'm running 900mHz my temps are 29 C in standby. Yours is definitely running high.... Chevy makes great quality Kernels, but it all depends on your phone. Try either the LV (Low Voltage) or MV (Medium Voltage) that. I tried Low and it didn't work, but Medium is excellent...

    I must have tried about 30 different setups before I found what worked best on my phone. I tried ChevyNo1 and AdamZ in evey volt and speed they have. Just worked out that the ChevyNo1-1.1Ghz-LV-7slot did the trick.

    Even though installing a kernel in update.zip form will not overwrite your setup do a full backup first. Murphy's Law does apply when doing simple upgrades.
