no no no, never extract .zips if your going to flash them in recovery.

Just download them, put them on your SD card, and flash them. They will automatically erase and replace the existing kernel and they will also automatically wipe the dalvik cache because they use koushes any-kernel updater.

So
1- Download em and put on your SD card
2- boot into recovery
3- navigate to where you stuck em
4- Flash them
5- Reboot and enjoy.

Yeah netarchy is a beast for sense-based roms.

Don't unzip it. Go into recovery and wipe cache and dalvik cache, then go to flash zip from sd card and flash the zip.
All roms come with kernels and you just flash over what is there. Thats is why you wipe first.

Hope this helps

Ok Thanks.Im trying to flash but i cant find my rom files.I use rom manager to load my roms.Also if i have backed up my roms can i loadmy back up and flash the kernel with that or just flash a fresh rom.

Do you know how to boot into recovery manually?
... You rooted with unrevoked didnt you?

Yes I do.Yes i rooted with unrevoked.I researched a little more and came across a thread where you told a guy to use Rom manager to apply the new kernel over the old and i got it to work.First i tried the 4.3.2 cfs no havs Beta and when i went into setcpu to overclock my screen froze and i had to take my battery out to turn my phone back on.Second i tried 4.3.1 bfs hvs same thing as the first.I tried restoring and wiping everythig still the same thing.I guess my phone gave up and it wouldnt let me pass the white evo screen. I thought i had bricked my phone.I tried several times but it didnt let me get pass the screen. I went to a last resort and hit the button that said update sim and my phone started working again.Whewwwww.Any ideas. Also do i delete the PC36IMG thats on my SD card theres 2 of them.

Some phones cant handle too much overclocking or HAVS (hyper active voltage scaling, basically undervolting the power draw from your battery).

That is why its freezing.

Yeah, you just can't overclock to the Max, my phone can't either. Just don't check the set on boot option while your testing the overclock.

I'm using the stock CM7 kernel.

How are you liking that new Cyanogen upated rom. I love that rom.Im upating it as we speak.Do you use rom manager or do you add your roms manually.
