    So I want to go ahead and try one of these ULV kernels. It seems everyone who uses one, has very good battery life. But with these ULV kernels, runs the possibility of the phone not booting up. If I install one of these, an this happens, do I take my sd card out of my phone an manually hook it up to my computer an put a different kernel on an then boot into recovery an install the kernel that way? I want to make sure I get this right, the thought of my phone not booting up makes me nervous. Or is there another way to fix this if this happens?

    if it boot loops, just reboot into recovery, whichever you're using, if sprecovery, go to mount options, enable usb mass storage, clockwork, go to partitions menu and enable mass storage, copy over a different kernel, flash, and voila :)

    Okay cool! I tried booting into recovery an it didn't work. Is this the situation where I have to flash my alternate recovery(sprecovery) an then flash back to clockwork?

    Probably. You can also flash one of the experimental clockworkmod recoveries in place of SPRecovery. It just has to be one that isn't the same as the one that isn't working, then you flash back.

    (lol I feel like I'm the official spokesperson for this fix XD)

    I tried flashing one of the older clockwork recoveries and then flashed back to the newest version and I still couldn't get into recovery.

    EDIT: I also just tried flashing SPRecovery and when I booted into recovery it still didn't load. What do I do??

    when you say try clockwork 2.0.2.4, do you mean flash that version an try to boot into recovery or flash that clockwork then flash back to the latest clockwork an then try to boot into recovery?
