If you are willing to concede on 1&2, then just ODIN flash any GB-based kernel repacked with CWM. They will work with any GB-based ROM.
I actually don't care about 1, and I am willing to concede on 2, now that my 14-day in-store return period is almost over and I'm pretty happy with the phone (except maybe for a pinkish tinge along the middle section of the phone with the brightness turned very low with ScreenDim), which is why I asked this in a new thread.
I assume nobody has had any problems with flash-count and warranty service?
Where can I get an appropriate, safe, non-bricking GB-based kernel repacked with CWM?
Can I use Odin to back up the original kernel and restore it after rooting?
