    I don't know what the point of a kernel is as I just installed a Fresh 3.2.0.0 rom a little while ago. Download a rom and put it somewhere on your sdcard.
    1. turn phone off
    2. press and hold volume down and press the power button while still holding the volume down button until you get to an HBOOT menu and wait for it to scan
    3. choose recovery and press power button to select
    4. I think you then have to wipe data/factory reset (I did)
    5. I think you then have to wipe cache partition (I did)
    6. choose install zip from sdcard
    7. choose choose zip from sdcard
    8. find your ROM and select it to install
    9. I think you need to flash the radio and wimax at this point
