First I would like to thank everyone here for the guidance I have found on the forums, very helpful.
Second, although I am new to the forums and Android, I do know a little about Linux, kernels and roms, and the like
I am running romracers Alien rom 6 and love it. I have also flashed his latest "AT&T Stock-ish 0.3" kernel successfully (according to CPU-Spy and the screenshots provided on the thread) and the "fixed UCLA3 radio" (which was flashed BEFORE the kernel). Where Im confused is that the Build Number in the About Phone section, still shows "Gingerbread.UCKK1.AL6".
I was under the impression that flashing the new kernel would update the Build Number to the UCLA3 designation. But apparently I'm mistaken.
So I guess my question is, (and I have tried to search) what is the Build Number based off of? The ROM? The kernel? or ?. Im not having any issues with my phone. The question is more for my (and anyone else's) knowledge. Or If I have done something wrong during the flash, how to correct it.
Thanks again for all the hard work from everyone.
