Sure, as long as it's a proper kernel for your device.

There's no sarcasm intended so please don't misunderstand but I'm just surprise that a custom kernel can work on stock. That's all

I think he was honestly shocked bud. This is my first nexus and I didn't know the kernels worked on stock. I am use to Samsung/LG phones where the kernel has to be made specific for stock (Samsung/LG stock) or AOSP. That is pretty cool dude! Nice to know. :sly::thumbup:

Fair enough.

Oh, and the other thing to look out for, some kernels are meant for CAF ROMs (like CM11), (the N7 stock ROM is non-caf), so make sure it's a non-caf kernel as well as one for your device if you plan to flash to a stock ROM. Kernel developers that make both usually make it obvious which is which.

I come from HTC phones whereby a custom kernel has to be "paired" with at least a custom rom so never know that its actually possible fior a custom kernel on stock
