Hello xda members.
I've got a question regarding kernels. How is one to know which kernel will work with there particular ROM? Are they all somewhat compatible just to a matter of degree? Or do people just find one that sounds good and hope it works on there particular ROM?

I'm running aosb end of the line ROM and I'm real curious to try out kernels now.

Any insight world be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There are pretty much 2 types of kernels.


CAF kernels - Used for CyanogenMod based ROMS
NON-CAF kernels - Used for AOSP / Stock

Find out if your ROM is CM based. If it is, Look in each kernel thread to see if it mentions CAF.

Hi,

This rom is based on CM so you need a kernel compatible with CM roms like (or tagged with "CAF"): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2551441 or http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2661397...

Maybe there is one or two others, don't remember exactly.

Since you are running aosb which is CM based Rom you can try the above 2 given and also the elemental X for CAF based Roms
