    How can I tell if I flashed a kernel correctly or if its working? Just rooted recently and still really new at all of this.

    Thanks

    If you flashed a kernel and your phone works, you did it correctly.

    Download the kernel.
    put it on the root of your sd card
    boot to red cmw recovery
    clear cache partition
    clear dalvik cache
    install kernel zip
    voodoo - enable lag fix
    reboot

    I always wipe cache and dalvik just to be sure. You don't have to, but you never know.

    I have been doing everything through rom manager. Does that do what I need it to if I am flashing kernels?

    Rom manager uses orange cwm you need red cwm. Find it here in the forum.

    Can you tell me if I am doing this right.

    I download the zip file from the browser on my phone to my sd card.

    I install from sd card in rom manager.

    I let the phone reboot.

    am I even on the right track?
