What exactly is a kernel..?
Ive rooted and romed my phone with IHO backside... now i see all this business about kernels, arent these things just, interface changes? i mean, the ROM is the OS of the phone, so what are the kernels and should i be aware of what they are/do in order to further screw with my phone o.O

Re: What exactly is a kernel..?
My favorite layman's definition is by dan330:
it helps the OS talk to the Hardware... better efficient kernel.. helps the hardware work more efficiently with the OS.
better kernels help overclock the CPU to perform faster.. when the OS needs the power.
