[Q] Flashing Kernels [AOKP]
Ok... Kernel flashing question... probably very simplistic to most, but here goes... feel free to just throw a link at me if it answers my questions. I'll appreciate it either way!
First off...since starting this whole rooting, rom, kernel, mods, theme, etc. experience just 2 weeks ago (yes, I'm a noob, hence the question...) I've tried many different ROMs on my I317M including Jedi X 16, CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, and a few others... Needless to say, the one I've enjoyed most so far because of it's built-in aesthetics control is AOKP officials. Currently running the 2013-08-21 t0lteatt nightly release. However, during my time on Jedi X I found the overclocking and gpu control just absolutely fantastic for gaming purposes.
My question essentially is what needs to be taken into consideration when flashing kernels? Am I able to just simply flash a performance kernel like Saber, for example, onto the AOKP ROM I'm using now and reap the benefits? What general and/or ROM-type specific considerations have to be taken into consideration?
I'm asking this 'cause I've been having some difficulty in finding a straight-forward and detailed description of the how-to's, don't-do's and go-right-ahead-and-do's on flashing kernels... so to speak.
Thanks for the help.
