Default Kernel/ROM install order

Probably a pretty stupid question but I'm doing some flashing today and I'm curious. Does it matter which order I flash the Rom and Kernel in? Or should the Kernel come first?

ROMs usually have a kernel with them, so install the rom, then the custom kernel you want.

Rom first, Kernel second! I don't know if it matters but I have never done it the other way. I always allow a boot up first when the rom installs and then reboot into recovery again and install the kernel Good luck.

when you install a new kernal, is there anything you need to do or does it replace the old one and most things should just work?

Provided you installed the correct one fo your phone it should work fine. You may notice things like longer battery life, enhanced speed on mobile networks and also the ability to change the frequency of the phones processor. I use an apex kernel on my GNex and it is really good.

If you install a kernel and then a rom, your kernel will be overwritten considering roms come with kernels

Install rom. Wipe Dalvik Cache before installing your kernel. Install kernel. Profit!
