Yes sir. I've done it many times. It is just about the best kernel for the ThunderBolt in my opinion. Might I suggest you run in battsaver mode. Underclocked and undervolted, great performance too.

To do that after you install the kernel, just download terminal emulator. Open it up, type su and give it permissions, then type speedtweak.sh and choose option 5. All done!

Awesome! Thank you!

Tried running the speedtweak but it said I needed busy box. Downloaded busybox installer and the newest version. Now it says speedtweak.sh isn't found...

Now that you have busybox installed, reflash the kernel and see the script is there then

Tried that and same result. Once busybox is installed in the xbin, it says speedtweak.sh not found.

Re-downloaded busybox but an older version and it worked perfectly! Thanks for the help!! Waiting to see how battery saver holds out.
