    We've all tried things that we should not have. My best advice anytime you make a change to the OS (new rom, theme or kernel) make a backup with SPR or CW first. A solid backup can save you hours of work and frustration.

    I have a Droid so my options and rom are different, I think. I've tried several roms and have always had great success with Chevy's kernels. I hope you find a good combination.

    Im actually gonna try the p3droid low voltage 125 starting ones... If the kernal doesnt work can i just reflash a new one over it without recovering first?

    Well im gonna dump a bunch of different kernals on my phone and just try flashing one after another till i find one that works. Now that i think about it i cant imagine flashing a new kernal over a good one that just didnt work shouldnt be a bad idea at all

    Ok well now all kernels get stuck on the initial screen and i dont know why... A kernal shouldnt require longer to boot up right?

    Well i think giving it 5 minutes to boot is more then enough time either way... No success on multiple chevy and p3droid kernels
    Edit: Just realized my battery is around 65% ill do a recovery and see what happens and probably try more tomorrow

    Thank you i honestly just want an ULV kernel because i crave battery life but i also would love to be able to overclock when i feel the need.
    In case what i said sounds silly i want to underclock my phone 99% of the time thus i want an ULV kernel but i would love one with some higher frequencies

    I did not ask earlier but in view of you last post -- do you have a task killer? They can strain the battery.

    I am uber confused here. This is the Incredible section right? Do P3 and Chevy even have kernels for the Dinc?
