So I'm running CM6 rc and I wanted to overclock since this rom is defaulted to 600mhz. I downloaded P3Droids 1100kernal through rom manager then rebooted so the installation could continue. Once the new kernal was installed, my phone rebooted and the LED immediately went red, my battery icon went red and I had no service. The phone then shut it self off after a few seconds.
I was able to restore my latest backup so my phone is fine now but I want to know what went wrong. Is that what happens when a phone doesn't like a certain kernal? Should I have wiped cache and data before installing?
