    Hey all,

    I'm having a problem with my droid feeling way too hot in my hands whenever I'm watching youtube or using FML and TFLN apps. I didn't have this problem until i made the switch from Ultimate Droid v.10 to Jrummy's Remix v.0.6.

    I'm sure that it's an issue with overclocking kernel, however, I'm completley confused on how to execute a kernel properly. If anyone out here can please help in how to properly install a kernel to remedy this, it would be greatly appriciated.

    if you want to try a different kernel, I think most if not all are in update.zip format. Just download it, rename it update.zip and install through recovery.

    and I would get SetCPU. with profiles you can keep from overheating and save your battery life as well.
