I'm on InsertCoin 4.6.1 but it has no 1.5ghz option, how do I apply the Sebastian kernel, the InsertCoin ROM is all one zip file, where do I get just the kernel download from and how do I load/install using 4ext recovery touch, finally is the Sebastian kernel completely compatible with InsertCoin 4.6.1?

Download Seb's Kernel (see my sig) and use 4ext to apply, like you would a new Rom.
Job done

No worries I had backups, restored back to InsertCoin 4.5.4 which was the version to have the 1.5Ghz option, could have been the firmware as I didn't update it as I thought I was on the latest but not sure what the Sebastian kernel needs.

Anyway it's back working now, I might do a few more checks and try again or chicken out and wait for baadnwz to release 4.6.2 which he's said will have the 1.5Ghz option back in. Was probably just me assuming rather than checking, thanks for the pointers though!
