    First of all, the support on these forums and over at XDA is amazing, all you folks are great. I've run into a slight problem. I will try to be as thorough as possible with my description.

    I rooted about a month ago with Unrevoked. It went great, no problems, all functions of the phone are great. I have never flashed a custom ROM as I am happy with the stock Sense UI. I removed only two bloatware apps, Football and Peep. A week ago I flashed a custom kernel

    It seemed that install went well. in conjunction wet SetCPU battery life was significantly increased and phone seemed to not loose any functionality. I had not used the front facing camera since the custom kernel flash until today. When I switched cameras the phone clicked like normal but stayed with the regular rear facing camera. I troubleshooted a bit, googled, searched this and XDA's forum, reboot, all the normal stuff with no fix. So, I decided to flash the stock kernel to try and pinpoint some problems. Using the beginners guide found on this forum I downloaded the stock kernel and attempted to flash it (after clearing partition cache and dalvik cache).
    Part way into the flash it aborted and said it was aborting. So, I then decided to try and flash

    The flash appeared successful, no errors. When The phone rebooted (which seemed to work fine) I checked the about phone section in the settings. It states that I still have the original custom kernel flashed

    Not

    Not quite sure what to do from here. I'd like to flash the stock kernel if I can. Thank you for any help you may have.

    Some notes:
    When wiping dalvik cache it states "e:unknown volume for path [/sd-ext]"
    Clockworkmod Recovery version is 3.0.0.5
    My phone was purchased just over a month ago so it came with stock android 2.2
    Everything (including the better battery life) works great on my phone, except for the front facing camera

    I honestly can not thank you all enough for any help you may have. Thanks!

    First, try reflashing either kernel and see if you have any change. Next try switching to ra recovery and see if you still have the issues. I ran sbc and had to flash a kernel 3 times to get it to change
