[Q] Installing a custom rom without flashing the kernel?
Hello, have been lurking on this forum for a while but never actually made any posts until now.
Let me start off my saying that I am a beginner when it comes to installing custom ROMs, I have only done it a few times before. I flashed my kernel, installed CWM and a custom ROM. After a while I got tired of the rom and decided to go back to Gingerbread 2.3.5. I hated the yellow triangle that shows up when using a custom kernel, so I went ahead and changed that back to stock as well, and that removed CWM as well.
But I've just discovered a ROM called "Batista70 Foxhound Edition 3.0" (which you can find in the i9100 general android dev section) and I love the look and feel it has, and would like to install it on my phone.
My question is pretty basic and simple:
Can I install this ROM without actually flashing the kernel (to avoid the f*ing annoying yellow triangle)? Or perhaps there is a way of flashing a kernel without getting the triangle? Though I'm not getting my hopes up for that question.
I also have a related question:
Can I install CWM without flashing the kernel?
Anything I forgot to add, let me know.
