Been trying to flash dr87's kernel to the Mahdi ROM (which has been a great ROM thus far), phone ends up getting stuck on LG symbol and starts getting the white lines, at which point I reboot into recovery and just re-flash the ROM. I've read other people have been able to flash it to this ROM with no issues. Wiped Dalvik before flashing. This is the VS98024A. Any thoughts? Heard the combination of this kernel and ROM was really good, would definitely like to try it out.

The DR's kernel is part of mahdi so not sure why you're trying to flash it.

It's been discovered LG used two different panel types on the G2, check out the explanation in the Furnace thread. You need to use the kernel that matches your panel type. As noted above though, Mahdi has a dr87 kernel in it.

I see, was not aware of that, I will have to look into that more. From my understanding, I believe this specific kernel is different from the one he used for the Mahdi ROM. I did assume that he used that AOSP v7 kernel in the ROM, however that kernel can be OC to 2.8, where the ROMs can be up to 2.5, and I read that some people had flashed that kernel to the ROM as well with good results.

I just looked, his AOSP kernel is only for roms running 4.2.2 source under the cover, I'm pretty sure the latest Mahdi is running 4.4.2.

Furnace AOSP should work on Mahdi.

Okay I wasn't sure if v7 was perhaps the update to implement it for 4.4.2, I took it as that from reading the thread title but it does say only for 4.2.2 source. I will have to look into Furnace more, see how it compares to the kernel running in Mahdi. Thank you for the link and all the info!
