    I just have a quick question about the kernals. If I do a nandroid restore using one of the images does it include a kernal? If I install a kernal using an update.zip and then install a different one later do I have to do anything or will the new kernal just overwrite the old one? Also how do the kernals releate to oc? For example what does it mean when I install a 1.0Ghz kernal? Does that mean it will run at 1Ghz or that it will run up to 1Ghz? I guess im just confused because of the oc apps, why do they exist if the kernals decide this? Are there any other benifits of upgrading the kernal execpt oc?

    I went through that whole guide and it was very helpful. It doesnt really answer my questions though. There isnt much about kernels in there, only how to install one. From taking a second look it seems like it does answer one question by saying that you can overclock up to 1.2Ghz depending on the kernel. I assume this means whatever speed the kernel say means its max speed.

    The kernel allows you to use custom settings in the SetCPU application. It can be clocked at "slots" up to the max speed programmed into the kernel. Do a search on that application or search on the ChevyNo1 or AdamZ kernels. There are dedicated forums for these great developers.

    Here is a link to Chevy's kernel selections. You have lots of options speeds with 5 slots vs speeds with 10 slots. You need to be rooted and will need an app called (setCUPhttp://www.pokedev.com/setcpu/). I believe the max speed is 1.25GHZ
