    Hey guys,

    Seem to have run into trouble with the kernel thing. Phone would constantly restart itself, etc. I didn't even notice much of a blazing speed difference. I went into Preware and uninstalled the kernel, and I orange-keyed the Govnah application.

    After that, it's all cleared up and normal, right?

    More or less. To be safe, install the recovery kernel.

    Where do I get that? Does that wipe anything?


    As for the speed difference and potentially installing wrong, what could have possibly gone wrong? Maybe I'll try it again.

    Orange + tap, reboot. Done. No need for the recovery kernel.

    If you want to confirm that, copy this into the Linux Commandline in WOSQI:
    Code:
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    For BogoMIPS, it should be about 498.07

    If you didn't feel a speed increase:
    -Make sure you installed Uber-Kernel AND Govnah
    -Reboot phone
    -Open Govnah and select a profile that suits your needs
    -Most users select the Screenstate 500/800


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    Yeah I rebooted, so I should be good. I did those things for the patch....maybe I was expecting more, or maybe I'm just not too perceptive? Eh. No biggie.

    I removed UberKernel. When I tried to re-install it, it would not install until I installed the recovery kernel. That is why I suggested installing the recovery kernel.

    You certainly don't have to.

    all the info is here, you just need to search. If you Dr your phone, you'll be good. It DOES NOT wipe your USB partition,so you don't loose anything.. Especially if you use save/restore to save your needed files, you just use that after Dr'ing and you'll have a fresh clean phone with NO issues, I just did it and I'm glad I did..

    That indicates you did not remove it properly.

    Yep, that is expected. A full erase does not modify the installed kernel files, but removes the entry which tells Preware that a custom kernel is installed.

    A full erase should *always* be accompanied by a webOS Doctor.
