    Alright, I recently rooted my phone and installed SS 4.8 w/ a ulowV .8 ghz kernal.

    I am wondering, in order to install a new kernal I can just download the zip file, put it on the root of my SD card and install it using clockwork recovery? Is that all there is to it?

    Yep. Doesn't even have to be root of the sd card.

    Yes. Though some may warn to back up before doing so.

    For the love of God, it's an E not an A

    Please, everybody...the word is KERNEL, not KERNAL!

    Hell, I am wondering this too. I just picked up a new kernal and wondering how to install? If using Clockwork, do I install as if I am installing a ROM or what? Does the "update.zip" method work for these?

    TIA guys!
