    Well, what kernel are you currently using (on the app so I can't see/read sigs)? And have you had the issue the whole time you've been using that kernel?

    That's odd. Reboot doesn't help? Try making a backup and flashing a different type (Chevy, Sapphire, etc).

    You don't have a recovery? Kernels are flashed the same way ROMs are but without wiping.

    Lol not sure if I do. I kind of lucked my way into rooting it without any issues. So all the terminology I don't understand like flashing to recovery. What is that?

    To get in to recovery mode. Power down your phone and then press and hold the x key on the keyboard that should bring you to either Clockwork recovery or SPrecovery it depends on which one you have installed.

    From this point it is a good time to switch to a pc so we can continue to communicate.

    After booting into recovery there will be a option to backup/restore. You have to use the volume rocker to select the option and the camera button acts as an enter button. Pressing the power button once will back you out of the current menu option.

    +1! Blue letters = SPRecovery; green = CW.

    You reboot into recovery to flash a ROM, kernel, theme, etc. If the lettering is blue, its SPRECOVERY (my favorite); green lettering is Clockworkmod.

    Booting in to recovery will let you make a backup of your current OS/Rom and Kernel. Then you can make changes like loading a different Rom or kernel, and if they don't help or you don't like them you can recover to your last Backup. It is always a good idea to make a backup of the stock OS before adding a Rom.
    Clockwork Recovery Looks like this:

    And SPRecovery Looks like this:
