    Sorry, but I am sure such installation guide exists. I want to install a new overclocking kernal. I have never done so, so I have searched forum for guide.

    Can anyone direct me to it?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    If you're using SP recovery, just rename the file to update.zip and put it in the root of your sd card. Make sure its the only update.zip in your sd card though. If you're using clockwork.. I'm not too sure.

    Using clockwork simply select the install zip from sd card option and then select the kernel file. Easy peasy.

    if you are using clockworkmod recovery you just put the kernal's zip file on the sd card. Reboot to recovery and then choose install zip from sd card, and choose the zip. Once thats done reboot and you are done
