so when i put on a kernel what exactly am i backing up? any links for a tutorial


am i just going another backup using clockwork like i did before i flashed a rom of my stock?

do i need another titanium app backup also?

currently i'm on 2.2 MIUI v0.5 1.1.28.1 and i wanna load the invisiblek kernel for it.

Just do a clockwork backup - replacing the kernel will not change any of your apps/data. Wipe Cache and Dalvik as well. If the kernel is not compatable with your ROM - you would have to restore from Nandroid anyway.

You flash a kernel like a rom just without the wipe.

You should backup your rom just incase something goes wrong.

Flashing a kernel does not delete anything of your phone.
