    Okay, so I'm gonna do this post as an informative one because I think people just may not know. Basically, ALL the current 10 slot kernel's that have been created to date are dangerous. Taz (everyone knows who he I assume) has come out and said this himself. He and the Droidmod team (although he goes by sgx now) are working on a way to allow for more slots safely, but in their current state these kernels are like "playing Russian Roulette" with your droid. I don't know if its a lack of knowledge on the other developers part, or if they just don't care...but you run a serious risk of cooking your droid using a kernel that has more than 5 slots at this point. I know people aren't going to believe me, or they are going to think I'm mis-informed, but I honestly believe Taz(sgx) and the DroidMod team over anyone else at this point. Hope this information finds you all well, and I hope the other Dev's out there take this warning and stop pushing ROMs with 10 slot kernel's till there can be a coded resolution. Happy Modding everyone.

    And where is the proof that they are dangerous? You never explained why.

    I've been using Droid mod and I trust the developers, I think I will take this recommendation serious.

    Well I'm not an expert or a coder, and this is the exact type of "you don't believe me" stuff I was talking about in the OP. However, if you want a technical explanation from an ACTUAL developer and not someone who is just passing information on to other users (i.e me). Then you can log into the irc channel and speak to sgx yourself.

    freenode Web IRC (qwebirc)

    choose a nick

    join #droidmod

    I'm just going off what I've been told by the developers (including the original kernel hacker Taz). Suite yourself if you want to fry your droid, it was just a fair warning to the rest of the community.

    Weird. I was thinking about this very thing today and loaded Chevy's 5 slot 1.0 kernel. I need to quit toying with my setCPU widget anyway, just load something that works and forget about it.

    just installed one of chevy's 5-slot kernels to replace his 10-slot i was using. i only used the 250/550/800/1000+ settings anyway, so better to err on the side of caution IMO.

    Not sure about the details on this subject but I have been using Chevy's 10 slot since it came out and I have not had a bit of an issue. No FC's, Shutdowns, Freezes, or Temps over 47 Deg. C. Even (while running GPS, Cardock, charging, full bright screen, and navigation for aprox. 55 minutes at a time). I don't think I would worry too much about it at this point. I do appreciate the information though...

    Me neither...I have *rarely* experienced issues like that, but it's the things you don't *see* that may permanently damage your phone

    I like to play. I am always doing what I can to try to tax my phones, computers, PSP, Xbox, truck, etc. With that said I would figure that if something was going to happen to the phone it would have happened by now. Trust me, I put the poor phone through the paces everytime I change a ROM, Kernel, or anything really. I have had ROM's and Kernel's bomb and some that have not. I have been on my current setup every since Chevy's 10 slot came out and haven't found an issue yet. All is good and I really am not trying to start anything I just don't want a mass hist aria starting over nothing. Sorta like the sky is falling or the Mars Invasion. I will say this, if anything does happen to my phone due to a 10 kernel well heck for that matter from anything I will be sure to post details and pics... :)

    I got a message from AdamZ saying he was having a conversation with sgx about this, I believe AdamZ's kernel has 8 slots. He said that sgx told him that too many slots can overwrite the OPP registry.

    FWIW, I don't know what the OPP registry is, or what it does but he said it was not good.

    Yeah, I'm reading an explanation in IRC right now. Basically the OPP registery is what controls voltage, by overwriting it you run the risk of a massive voltage spike and "poof". Broken Droid. Thats the gist of it. Still way more tech stuff involved...but there is the non-tech explanation that I didn't have before.
