what is this and what does it do?
Quote:

ensures you have no issues flashing different kernels.

Clears init.d scripts associated with Kernels, removes bln associated files, clears dalvik-cache, cache, and any logcat on/off

how to use
Quote:

download zip to your sdcard and reboot into cwm
flash kernel cleaning zip
flash new kernel
....that's it

when to use
Quote:

When flashing from one kernel to another. Right now the only two primary kernels are Entropy's DD and Siyah. Siyah adds etc/init.d/ scripts so this ensures they are removed prior to flashing a different Kernel.

So "when" should this be used? Between flashing new roms? Or can it be used to clean a rom you are using?

Btw the link is not working

Not to sound like a prick, but can't you read?

It says right under the first part of the OP titled "what is this and what does it do?"

in the OP it also the title says Kernel Cleaning Script.

@ sgs You mean before flashing a ROM, right? Or before flashing a new kernel.

Chill brotha. He's asking for when it should be flashed for proper usage. Not what it is..

I believe it should be used prior to flashing a new kernel. Also when changing ROM's which also contain a different kernel.

Well you do sound like one, I did read it and didn't say when exactly you were to use it. SO then, use it ONLY when changing kernels. So if you flash a new rom, then you do or dont use it? Only if youre running a rom, but decide to go to another kernel?

I think you're on the right track:
1) use prior to flashing a new kernel
or
2) use prior to flashing a new ROM if that ROM uses a different kernel than what you are currently using

Exactly how this should be used...
