[Verizon] Custom ROM question: should kernel, Base and Radio version match?

    So I've had my eye on a new Kernel that I want to install, but as a former Droid X-er, I'm not quite sure what is involved. If I install a designated 4.0.3 kernel, do I also have to install a 4.0.3 ROM and radio?

    The kernel may be able to run on a 4.0.2 rom but you will likely need to see what the dev has stated in their post about the kernel. AFAIK the stock radio should be fine with a 4.0.3 rom/kernel.

    When flashing a new kernel, if you're on a 4.0.2 ROM then you must flash a kernel that is listed compatible with 4.0.2 ROMs. Same goes for 4.0.3.

    The order is flash ROM, then kernel :)

    Just be sure to follow any instructions given by the developer of that ROM or kernel as to what preparations to make before your flash.
