Sure, as long as it's a proper kernel for your device.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Set a fire for a man, and he will stay warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will stay warm for the rest of his life.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not....but yeah, it's possible and I'm not kidding.

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
