If anyone would like to start playing with custom kernels for Bulletproof 1.1, please see this link below:
doubleshot kernel project OC/UV
You will find Bulletproof compatible stock HTC, undervolt and overclock kernels.
Custom kernel management:Bloater:
Bloater is ONLINE and updated as of December 17th, 2011.
Installing custom kernels:
-  - Download the kernel zip file to your sdcard.
 - Flash through clockworkmod recovery just like a ROM.
- - If you do not know how to do this, you should learn how to flash ROMs before moving on to kernels.
- - SetCPU is an app that lets you regulate the clock speed of your device. ( and more! )
- - Check out the app in the XDA News page, and then check out the Dev thread.
- - Consider donating and buying the market app to support the developer if you really use the app.
Installing an Overclock kernel on your device could have negative physical consequences (Read: broken hardware) if misused/abused.
Please educate yourself on what overclocking does and how you can melt your processor.
You proceed at your own risk and any damage that may result is the sole responsibility of the end user.
Function of Bloater:
- Add or Remove stock apps!
- Customize your installation just the way you want it!
- Add in anything removed from the Stock ROM by Bulletproof!
- Now includes widgets individually!
Bloater: MT4GS Menu
- Live Wallpapers.
- Stock and HTC Apps

The app DoubleshotAndroidZipgroups_06-15_V1.0b13935.apk, as per this thread: Shocker on my last phone bill, malware in rom? has been determined to be the problem that *some* people were having with getting billed for international texts they never sent nor received.
For the benefit of all, and to err on the side of caution, this app has been removed from the ROM. There was not time before the release to remove the user interface option from the ROM, or figure out how to enable it safely.
For the time being, please accept this concession of incompleteness in order to get the rest of the ROM in people's hands to play with.
Bulletproof is a ROM that is the brainchild of Romanbb. I would like to single out this developer as a shining example of what a developer at XDA should be. He releases code that isn't just slapped together and thrown out there, but rather takes his time to get things right, and labors for long hours on small things, those details that are so important and oft ignored in general.
He displays a level of patience, helpfulness and contributes much more to XDA then the code he writes. I should hope to live up to the example he sets for us all.
He has moved on to new projects beyond the doubleshot (MT4GS) and i'm sure we all wish him well in his endeavors, I know I do. I thank him for allowing me to pick up where he left off, and appreciate the solid ground he gave me to stand on - both with the code left behind and direction to start working with it.
I also thank him for not spoon-feeding me every answer, and forcing me to exercise my brain by pointing me in a direction, but leaving me to find the answers on my own. The hardest part of being a teacher is NOT giving your student the answer, and instead teaching them how to arrive at the answer on their own.

Bulletproof to me is first and foremost a ROM to use as a basis for my next project, which is delving into kernel modification for the doubleshot. Incidentally, this is also another project
Romanbb started us on over here in the MT4GS forums.
I need a solid, stable platform to test my kernel work in. I don't want to waste time guessing if a problem was from a kernel, or from the ROM itself. I have learned quite a bit about Bulletproof, and while it still holds a few surprises for me, there aren't many left to uncover.
As a tangential bonus to users of the doubleshot, this should be a solid daily-driver ROM to use on your phone, when you just want a Sense-based ROM to work and not have to deal with broken things as you use the phone in your daily life.
This is no slight against any other developers, and I could not have put this out without a monumental amount of help from Romanbb, the XDA community at large, and many members here in the MT4GS forums (and some not) who may or may not realize how they have helped me. This really is a community achievement, and the credit rests not on any one persons shoulders.
As with most software, it could always be better - and there are still issues to be resolved, though none that will inhibit stable usage of the device or ROM (to my knowledge). Please stay tuned for future improvements.
Where we go from here:
I will support this ROM to the fullest extent of my capabilites.
That being said, please understand something about my life. I work a very random schedule. Sometimes I have a week or more off at a time, other times I put in a 90+ hour work week between two jobs.
Some of you may have noticed by now that when I am here, I go into great depth with my postings and spend a significant amount of time writing up guides, answers and questions.
The trade-off is that when i'm not able to be here, I am like a ghost.
Please do not ever think I have left the community. XDA is my home on the internet, and rarely do I go elsewhere in my free time anymore - unless it is to look something up to use here. I have been very passionately involved with computers for most of my life, and there is no other place like XDA on the internet anywhere.
I really need people's patience if I am in a period where I cannot spend much time on the forums. Believe me, I would rather be here then anywhere else if given the choice. I have a wonderful Lady in my life, and am trying to start a family - so please understand that I will give any and all time I can.
1 - Overclock kernel. Incremental kernel CPU clock speed increase until we reach 1.5 stable.
2 - Undervolt kernel. Incrementel voltage decrease until lowest stable voltage achieved from 1.5 CPU clock speed.
3 - Careful, cautious incrementation of CPU clock speed above the manufacturers rated 1.5, emphasis on stability.
The kernel work is honestly the primary drive behind what Bulletproof 1.0 is. I intend to lay out a very in-depth explanation of how and what was done for a majority of the kernel work I do after I get it working. I feel the discovery and sharing of this information will be a great service to the XDA community.
It also has the benefit of being able to teach others who have a doubleshot how to work on kernels, and then team kernel projects become a reality. I hope that some of you out there are interested in working with me in the future, because CPU speed and voltage are but a tiny fraction of what the kernel is about.
More information forthcoming....
