[Q] Questions on Flashing in Aroma
I'm curious to see what the popular opinion is one the following topics:
1) Is it acceptable/ok to dirty flash from a ROM to itself to gain additional features? Ex: I'm currently running Hyperdrive RLS15 and I'd like to reinstall with all of my prior options, but adding an AOSP/other app. Is this ok?
2) What is the best practice in flashing a new kernel? I'm working to maximize my battery life (thus far, Hyperdrive is working decently), and I need to flash a custom kernel. Should I be doing a "so fresh and so clean" 3X wipe (system/data/dalvik/cache) and somehow include the kernel into the Aroma installer (and as a complete newb, how do I go about doing this?)? Can I flash the kernel through TWRP over top of my current install? If I'm running a complete re-install, is there any reliable method to keep all of the Hyperdrive tweaks that I've implemented?
Thanks in advance folks!
