    I am running the themed V6.5 Final. Right after I flashed the ROM, I flashed the CorCors 1.0 GHZ SV Kernel and everything was working ok. I was able to get CompCache working. I was interested in trying a different Kernel to see if I get better performance and battery life. As soon as I did I wasn't able to get the CompCache to initialize. Free shows swap as all zeros. I flashed back to the original Kernel and it still will not setup any CompCache.

    The one thing I didn't do before flashing the kernel was to turn off CompCache. I am wondering if that would have worked? Also do others have this issue? And is there a step I could do to get the compcache to work again?

    Thanks.

    restore from the backup you made before flashing the new kernel?

    Thank you for the response. While that does restore the functionality it doesn't solve the underlying issue in that I am unable to try any new kernels unless I reflash the entire ROM and then immediately flash a kernel. I am wondering if there are some steps I would have to perform prior to flashing a new kernel so I can retain the functionality.
