yes, you will have to first root your phone, using either the hack kit or the one click method which means you must make a gold card. read the instructions and follow them step by step im sure you will make it fine
Thank you very much for the fast reply. It is greatly appreciated.
you dont have to have a kernel, you can just flash the rom. after flashing the rom you can flash one of the OC kernels in the forum if you want.
i havent tested the rom with other radios, so you can try it if you want but i dont guarantee the results.
