Thunderbolt radio question

I just rooted my thunderbolt and started flashing ROMs. A very highly recommended ROM gave me trouble - Thundershed. I am a NOOB so let's go slow on this:
I flashed the ROM, then I flashed the gapps. After reboot, homescreen button doesn't work, phone forecloses, totally unusable. After some investigation and reading, it looks like I might need to upgrade my radio. Is there a radio that is good for everything? I can't find a great step by step on this and don't want to mess it up. Also, would be great to see how to flash a new kernal.
BTW - I flashed Gingeritis and it worked well, just trying to see some other stuff.

Here goes a link for upgrading your radio.

Your problem doesn't sound like radio issue though. You should try to flash the rom again, make sure you wipe your device before installing.

If you want to try a different kernel, it just like flashing a new rom. Just download it to SD card and flash. Make sure you get the right kernel though. There are ones for aosp and sense roms. Here is a link to some kernels.
