    Device: Micromax Funbook Infinity P275 Tablet / Stock ICS 4.0.4 / Stock Kernel / Rooted / Gonna get CWMR like right now.

    I want to know what the prerequisites for flashing a kernel are. I want to flash a custom kernel on it since I have been told that my device because of the stock kernel. One more thing I want to know is whether kernels have universal compatibility unlike ROMs. Can I flash any kernel on my device?

    It would be great if someone could suggest me a kernel suitable for my device. Is there any thing else I should know about?

    I would really appreciate some help! :)

    First off, what device do you?

    Second, kernels are definitely not universal, flash the wrong one and you can definitely get in trouble. Since we have no idea what phone you have any recommendation is a moot point. Best bet is to cruise over to XDA, find the sub form for your device and read what people like and don't like.

  3. Welcome to Android Forums.

    There are individual forums here for each phone that is supported and each has a subforum "All Things Root" where root-related issues for that device are discussed.

    The best approach is to post your question there.

    As was pointed out, if you identify your device someone could move your question.

    Thanks a lot for replying!

    Micromax Funbook Infinity P275 Tablet. Its a tablet by Micromax India. Little known device. No custom ROM's available / no device specific kernel available.

    I am still willing to change the kernel as I have lag / cpu usage spikes issues (even after removal of bloatware).

    Can you still possibly help me in some way?

    Thanks! :)

    You guys at AF seem to be a nice welcoming community. Thank you for that! Also, I just mentioned my device in my previous post.

    I've moved this to General Tablet Talk since we don't have a forum for this device. Thanks for your understanding.
