Default [Q] why need to update with Karnel and what is OC ??

Right now I am android 4.1.1 and now I am going to update a ROM which is of 4.2.x but in every thread I have seen that first flash with kernel. Why we need to flash with karnel . In earlier many tym I have flashed many different ROMs but I never flash any kernel and without flashing kernel my ROMs are working fine in my device so why we need to flash kernel and what is OC mean over clock?? Thanks in advance..

You need to flash 4.2.x kernel so that your device runs according to rom. Kernels are like brains. They control how your device works. Si flash an appropriate 4.2.x kernel when you flash a 4.2 rom. And yes OC means overcloak. It basically is a process of increasing your processor speed more than usual. Lets say if your processor is 1ghz, you overcloak it to 1.2 ghz. OC may speed your device, but it also creates heating problem and battery drainage quick. Hit thanks if i helped.
