Question [SE Live with Walkman] Installing MESA Kernel over Extended Stock Kernel

Hello

I am a newbie Android user though I flashed Real ICS r6 and Extended Stock kernel a few months back. The ROM is great, the kernel works fine. But I wanted to Overclock and use Swap File which isn't enabled in extended stock so, I wanted to install MESA which is compatible with Real ICS as well as my phone. But I have no idea how to flash a NEW kernel.

If I flash a new kernel does my ROM get erased too?

I need a detailed step by step tutorial about flashing MESA and replacing Extended Stock with it, without removing Real ICS r6. Any help is appreciated guys. Also, please take note that I cannot brick the phone as I won't get a new one for years if that happens.

Thank you in advance.

The steps is so easy,
1-Download the kernel, extcract if it is a zip file
2-Get boot.img
3-And put it in your fastboot folder
4-Open cmd and navigate to fastboot folder,
Or simply click on start search for cmd and drag it in fastboot folder then open it
5-shutdown your phone
6-hold on volume up and connect the usb from the phone to pc
7-it will ask you for drivers ( skip if you already done so)
8- in cmd run the following commands
Fastboot devices
Fastboot flash boot directorytoboot boot.img
Replace directorytoboot with actual directory

It will not earse your rom.
And btw xperia 2011 is hard to be bricked
Click thanks if I helped you

Try MESA Hybrid v3.6 kernel. It's better. Flash kernel via Fastboot and then flash mesa-hybrid-stock.zip via CWM.
