    i want to return back to my original kernel for my droid 4 version 4.0.4, help a nub!

    I have no idea how to just flash back to the stock version of the ics kernel for my phone. Im a nub with all these phone mods and just want to return to the original state, i feel like the kernel i have flashed to is causing issues. Please help! Thanks a lot.

    The Droid 4 has a locked bootloader, meaning you can't flash custom kernels. If you're running a KEXEC based rom, then you're running an alternative kernel, and all you have to do is simply switch back to stock or a standard rom.

    Basically: there are only two kernels for the D4, stock & kexec

    Hmm, well the link below is what i used. It was a lame attempt to overclock the d4 but now i dont care so much for it anymore. Not worth all the trouble to me so how do i set it back?

    I have no idea what that link did to my phone, thought it would allow my set cpu app to increase the clock speed. and i haven't backed up anything. I'm sorry if i sound like an idiot. Im so lost -___-

    If you flashed the .zip, you will likely need to SBF/flash back to stock. If your using bootstrap, you can just flash a new rom or swich back to your non-safe system and verify things are working OK.

    What you flashed isn't a kernel, it is just 'modules' that enable the changing of the CPU speed 'slots'. The version in your link isn't ICS compatible yet, there is a version in the RAZR section that has been updated to work with ICS.

    I see okay I'm understanding it now. Well I flashed using the rom mod application. The thing is im not sure what rom to flash to or how to revert back to original setting. I didint use bootstrap, or backup anything because i have a bad habbit of never backing data up. But there should be an easy way to just remove this mod right?

    Thats one hell of an instruction list. So that's gonna wipe my phone, and everything will get back to factory stock?
