    Confuses about installing other kernels

    Hi all,

    Sorry, I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm having trouble finding the answer to my question if it exists on the forum...

    I would like to try other kernels, but I don't want to wipe my phone every time.

    Right now I run bugless with 800 mhz kernel, and sdrecovery.

    If I get a different kernel and go with the updaqte.zip method, do I need to wipe the phone? Will installing update.zip wipe the phone?

    Thanks for your time.

    I gather that the same goes with applying themes with update.zip?

    Thanks

    Exactly! Just make backups before flashing ANYTHING, just in case

    Great, thanks for the tip.

    Coicidentally, is nandroid backup enough, at that point?

    Or should I backup with titanium before I reboot?

    Nandroid backup in recovery is what I meant, sorry. Titanium won't be needed since you're not wiping
