Restoring the stock 800 MHz kernel without reflashing the whole ROM?

    Is it possible? I would like to go to the Chevy 1.0 GHz ULV kernel that worked well for me in BB 0.4 , but if something goes wrong I'd like to flash the bundled 800 MHz kernel back on top of it. I know I can do a nandroid backup (and I probably will) / restore, but then I'd have to restore to [the time at which I performed the backup] :p

    Thanks!

    Might that not cause problems though, since BB 0.5 has that weird "reboots on its own after first boot" situation with restoring apps? Or is that a non issue if you're just reflashing to get the kernel back?

    Not all kernels are created alike. They don't all run the same on a given Droid. P3droid's 800 MHz is not identical to Chevy's or Slayher's or the one that comes with BB 0.5.
