Default [Q] Can i flash a New Kernel on top of present one !!!

Hi All,

I need a quick help.

currently i have a kernel 3.4.X for KitKat ROM LWW (coconut) downloaded from this site http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2755249 kernel is good with good RAM & Battery performance, but it has some bugs like Wi-fi, videos can't play, can't take video recording etc..

Now i have downloaded another kernel and wanted to test it. So, do i just need to flash the New kernel on top of the present kernel one. or
should i need to go back to the stock build version WT19i_4.1.B.0.587 and then i need to flash the New kernel or what ?

Thanks in Advance,

If the new kernel is compatible with your current rom, just flash it and it'll work. There's no need to flash the stock rom and you won't lose any data
