[Q] Neo V kernel reversion on reboot
I have this persistent problem across different ROMs and kernels. The problem is, when I flash a kernel through fastboot mode, it "sticks" only for the first session after flashing. When I reboot my device, the flashed kernel is gone, and I am left with the old kernel.
I wish to state that I have tried to search for the answer to this before posting. I also state that I have followed all installation instructions for the respective ROMs/kernels exactly. This is a recent problem for me, as I have done a lot of flashing before, and never encountered such a problem.
This happened when I moved from:
1) CM 9.1 (ICS) official stable with its default (FXP) kernel to LegacyXperia (JB) with its default kernel.
I was stuck in a loop here, like I would enter fastboot mode, flash the new kernel, new ROM and gapps, and when I reboot system through recovery, I still get the FXP logo (old kernel and old recovery), and a boot loop follows. Then I repeated the process for a couple of times, and then flashed the official Sony .587 ICS firmware, hoping it would set things right.
2) Stock Sony .587 firmware (ICS) with stock kernel (flashed official FTF) to Suave kernel.
I can see Suave kernel when I boot for the first time following flashing it, but when I reboot, the recovery is gone, and I can see the default Sony kernel again.
I hope I have stated my question clearly. Please help me find a solution to this.
