    if you look at my sig there are plenty of references that will help you understand what kernels are and also where to get them. the kernel in my sig is a good one to start.

    i was reading an old thred talking about chevy vs droid3 and it seems by reading that there are kinks in kernels out there. and that they are all not 100% full prof. How much time after knowing exactly how to flash different kernels does it take on avarage cause it sounds like some of the kernels are trial to find one that works well for you and your phone.

    I needed a netarchy greater than 4.2.x due to the new camera hardware or software. It breaks my camera if I dont use 4.3.x. So if you have a newer phone (0004) you most likely want to go with 4.3.x.

    yea I have setcpu funny you say that cause that is the reason i started wanting to change kernels. After playing with the app I started noticing things that were different from my my phone compared with others and it all started with the kernels the potential. I got a question???? Setcpu has been notifing me to temp problems. its set to alarm me at 38.9c. Is that to low. whats a good temp scale to go with for the EVO
