    Ah happy days :D

    Yep it's a recovery to make nandroid backups, if you rooted with a custom kernel then you probably have it.

    To see our you have restart your phone and when you see the Sony logo just keep pressing volume up repeatedly and you should go into recovery ;)

    wow you're right. so this recovery is NOT a kernel and is not a "ROM" so if i do something wrong when flashing kernels/roms i can revert by going to my backup. right? that's if this backups kernel, rom and firmware

    It will backup your rom so you can restore back to a previous state if you stuff up but I'm not to sure about the kernel because cwm is part of the kernel

    Try the XsX kernel, I'm on that, seems nice.
    Not over clocked it, just under clocked.

    I think maybe the xss speed kernel allows over clocking to about 1.67

    Just wanted to let you guys know that if you want to return to stock kernel just extract the kernel from your ftf with 7zip or winrar and flash it back in fastboot, and the best part is you retain root :D

    Why would you want a stock kernel?
