How to Install/Flash a New Kernel on Galaxy S2 i9100!

For those of you who want to flash a custom kernel on your Galaxy S2 i9100, it’s very easy to do so and while I was installing a custom kernel (to enable overclocking) on the latest Resurrection ICS ROM, I took a video.

The process is exactly identical to flashing/installing a new ROM except you do not need to wipe.

Also, as a general rule of thumb, flash only Gingerbread kernels to Gingerbread ROMs and ICS kernels to ICS ROMs.

If you accidentally flash ICS to Gingerbread ROM or Gingerbread to ICS ROM, simply flash the correct kernel and you will be able to get out of boot loops.

The process is pretty much identical to other Galaxy S2 variants, just a different method to get into recovery.
