    Anyone know where I can link the stock htc kernels?
  8. akazabam

    akazabam Android Expert

    The problem with all (or most) of the flashable stock kernels you'll find is that they are provided as a boot.img. Pretty much every custom ROM out there has a modified boot.img. Unless the ROM is stock or meant to be stock with very, very few changes, you should not flash a kernel packaged this way, or you will undo some changes. For example, if a custom ROM supports a2sd, even if it comes with the stock kernel, there are modifications done to the boot.img to support a2sd. If you flash a custom kernel, then flash a stock kernel that is just packaged in a boot.img, you'll break a2sd. That being said, if you happen to find any stock kernels out there, I highly recommend you not suggest people flash them unless they are on a completely stock ROM. I do remember myn providing a flashable version of HTC #17 in modular format (what you want; not packaged in a boot.img), but I can't seem to find it now. Anyway, you can tell pretty easily if a flashable zip is just a boot.img or not. Just open it. If there is just a zip file at the top level, and in that zip is a boot.img file, then it's going to flash a whole boot.img. If you open the flashable zip, and it has just a directory named kernel or something like that, and in that directory are other files, but no boot.img to be found, you should be fine.

    All that being said, what users need to do is just flash their current ROM without wiping data to get the stock kernel (or whatever came with the ROM) back. That will undo all other mods, but it's the easiest way. Another option would be to take the boot.img out of the flashable zip of your current ROM, package it in a flashable zip, then just flash it. That would certainly do the trick, but it would be really impractical to make flashable zips for all ROMs and versions.

    In any case, it's not impossible to make a flashable zip that has just the stock kernel, but someone with more knowledge than me would have to make it, and I haven't seen any others out there beyond HTC #17. Those that know how to do it always just suggest to reflash your current ROM, anyway.
