    My question...

    Can I add a kernel to PE 5.0.2 and have it show up in the Elite Options / Performance / Change Kernels list. That would be very cool if thats possible.

    Not sure how its setup but if its as easy as adding the new kernel to a specific folder or file and running/editing a script. Im sure its not that easy or else everyone would be doing it. lol

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Now, I am by no means qualified to answer this question with 100% certainty ... but I am pretty sure the answer is no. I assume that the PE team hosts these kernels on an ftp site somewhere and when you install one it actually downloads and installs - the kernels are not actually stored on the phone.

    Again, I am no expert so someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    I second that notion. As when you check for an update, it reaches out, downloads, then restart into recovery. I think it tells you the same thing when you choose a new kernel. I think both just download a new update.zip and then run it from recovery. Pretty slick.
