Default [Q] Confused about kernel compatibility

Hey guys, got a Vzn S3, trying to use Safestrap to install a custom ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2605648

Now it mentions below that I need to make sure to flash the same Kernel on both ROMS, and provides the ML1 Kernel.
But now I'm on 4.4.2 (Kernel ver. 3.4.0 May 20, 2014)
The only other kernel I can find is this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2133550
But I'd rather make absolutely sure rather than mess up my device, esp. since it's a locked bootloader.

P.s: Would the Cyanogenmod Nightly: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2558946
work with safestrap?

Read the sticky in the development section, then ask anything you don't understand.

Sorry, which sticky do you mean? I've read them all already.

The 4.3 and 4.4 sticky, you're not understanding a lot of stuff or you haven't read all the linked material. Everything you're asking is linked or located in that thread already.

Short answer is no you can't use Cyanogenmod, you can't install custom kernels. Safestrap supplies kernel modules, not kernels to flash, you're not quite understanding exactly how safestrap works.

Basically you can't accomplish what you're asking, but if you want more details on why you can't and the limitations of the device read through all the linked material. It's too much to type out.

I think I understand now. Basically even if I used safestrap, I can't use a custom rom anyways.

It's ok, I figured it'd be easier (and safer) to used the Xposed Framework + modules. At the worst, I can at least factory reset and work from there again.

Thank you!

Safestrap at least gives you the ability to make a nandroid. It isn't completely useless on 4.4.
