I'm not sure if its just my phone, had this problem for a while now, but when it occurs, i usually just flash another rom, but basically, when it comes to my rom and flashing a rom that comes with a custom kernel, its a no go what so ever, its force close central, and boot loops and all that, no idea why, but my phone just simply doesn't play nice with any custom kernels at all, started with Jellybomb, use to love it, worked perfect, no problems, then when it updated to i believe 10, 11, not precise on what version, and he used a custom kernel, then bam, tried everything, no luck, and couldnt use that rom with my phone anymore, or any other rom that comes with custom kernels, and still cant, and i guess its time to mention it to verify if this happens to anyone else.
i dont want to hijack a thread but also dont want to start a new one since there is this one. has any cspire s3 users flashed a different kernel and had success with it. im on the latest pacman rom and want a diff kernel. ive flashed one before and got a softbrick. just curious.
@ IonIcone, Keep the thread to the user that's asking the question.
Search the whole forum first / search it online, if it's a no go on both parts, then start a question
thread of your owns.
KernelCleaner can be downloaded here.
scripted by mattrb, you can thank him for that file.
When using kernels make sure it's for the right version
JB or AOSP. and also make sure its for the right version
4.1.x or 4.2.x
Usually when you're also installing a rom with a dif kernel ( and you CAME from a rom with STOCK kernel )
you'll need to wipe cache and dalvik cache, and re-set permissions via Custom Recovery.
If those don't work, search the original ROM thread for a [Q] of the same as yours and see if there was a fix / reply for that.
If all else fails, contact the dev of the rom with your specific issue.
I've been switching between kernels and JB versions and i've never ran into this issue. Anthrax, K747, Agat's and Stock Optimized.
Have you tried odin flash restore to stock LJ7 and re-installing the rom as well?
