Finally got around to using the kernel switch tool (my computers usb decides when it wants to recognize devices or not...)
was panicking because i thought i bricked my phone from deleting the OS on my stock ROM slot but found a backup of the .16 i thought i erased and it saved my poor phone.
just finished 2nd reboot and everything seems to be working smooth.
a couple problems,
1. google search widget doesnt work
2. favorite contacts widget will not open when swiped up or down,
3. (this one is kind of a rhetorical question) it keeps popping up with the official ota (.16) update. is it safe to download and install the update? im sure i know the answer to it, just looking for the reassuring NO i will probably recieve.
4. (one last question) if i wanted to revert back to my stock ROM/.16 ota update, do i need to switch kernels with the utility then boot into safestrap and restore the previously mentioned backup?
this rom so far seems to be smooth and stable
i will probably be posting more about it when i go into more modifying (cpu overclocking and battery life coming from stock to this one)
thanks for the time and replies.
