    Hi,

    I'm new to rooting and Android and learning as I'm going along. I have a Canadian Captivate from Rogers. I recently rooted my phone and installed CyanogenMod following their instructions. Hardcore's SpeedMod Kernel and ClockworkMod Recovery were installed. The ROM works fine, only problem is the battery drains way too quickly, a common issue with these nightly builds. So I plan on switching to Serendipity and give that a try. Problem is this is all new to me and I'm confused on the kernel and how to proceed from here. The phone says the Kernel is version 2.6.35.7-g78face2 by kolja@unimatrixzero #1.

    1) Should I install a different kernel?
    2) What steps do you suggest I take to switch to Serendipity? I have these download instructions from their site but not sure how to proceed from my case Download - Serendipity

    Thanks for any advice. I'm in the process of learning about rooting and kernels but with the battery draining so quickly gotta change asap too. Cheers!

    Airborne :)

    U do not need to worry about the kernel. It is built into the rom. Do not change the kernel after install either. I have been thinking of going the opposite as u, only because I miss the kernel choices so that I can overclock.

    you will need to go back stock first using ODIN and then follow the instructions, but why go back to serendipity 6.4? There is a gingerbread based serendipity out now, you will need to go back stock before flashing either
