Good evening ladies and gentlepeoples! I guess I'm the new kid in town and I'm in need of a little assistance.

As the title of my post states, I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2 (SCH-I415) which has been rooted and I think my Kernel is a skootch outdated & I'm not sure how to update without messing anything up.

Just to make things easier, here is my setup:
Model Number:
SCH-I415

Android Version:
4.1.2

Baseband Version
I415VRBMA3

Kernel Version
3.031-947060
se.infra@SEP-100 #1
SMP PREEMPT Fri Feb 8 01:35:31
KST 2013

Build Number
JZO54K.I415VRBMA3

Hardware Version
I415.04

Sorry for such a long post, but any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your time.

the kernel is part of the system(firmware), if you update the firmware, the kernel will be update too
but, if there's a custom kernel for your device, you can change it, but you have to rooted your phone first

Well, my phone is already rooted. I just want to update my custom kernel without accidentally bricking my phone. OTA updates no longer work. I try and I get "Unfortunately, Settings has stopped".

Bump/Update

Now sometimes my phone will randomly shut itself off when I'm in the middle of doing something like web browsing or listening to music.
