    Default I have CM installed but want to try a different Kenrel, so some questions...

    1. How do I install a different kernel?

    2. how would I go back?

    3. Does it erase my data or is it like updating a kernel in a normal Linux OS?

    Does no one have info on how to change the kernel?

    You find the kernel you want and dowload it to you sdcard. Boot to recovery wipe cache and dalvik cache, and then flash the kernel. To revert simply follow above steps for wipe and teflash your ROM and gapps.

    Kernel flashing doesn't erase your data.

    A lot of people at XDA have been recommending the marmite kernel. Download links: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...4eDRCbXc#gid=0

    Thanks!

    So to undo, I have to reflash the entire ROM?

    Or flash a different kernel. To get back to the CM kernel you'd have to flash the rom again, but no need to wipe data.
