yea put them both on your card , as a safeproof so you can get to whatever rom or stock if you need to. Its very simple, flash or activate a .8 rom and flash the .8 zip over top of it, when you wanna go back to a .16 rom , activate it , and flash the .16 zip over the rom. I dont know for sure, but I assume that you do not have to flash the file everytime if you are only switching between .8 only or .16 only. Only need to flash if upgrading or downgrading. I believe this is correct bc all the zip does is flash the kernel and once the kernel is active you can change to as many roms of that kernel until you gotta rom that needs the other kernel, then you flash it. Hope this isnt confusing, most of you know ive only been at this hobby for a few months and becoming familiar with everything.
excellent work drinxtir! a must have utility ON THE GO!
Yeah you only need to flash the .8.zip if you are booting an .8 based ROM, and .16.zip if you are booting .16 based rom.
It doesnt matter if you flash before or after the rom install, because they usually dont rewrite that partition.
Its easy to tell which you are booting because if you boot a .8 Rom with the .16 kernel, you will go into a bootloop.
and if you boot a .16 based rom with an .8 kernel you will boot into an error screen complaining about a "Cryptographic Verification" issue.
I'm working on getting it down to one zip that will parse the hash for each rom version and flash the appropriate kernel accordingly. But beins I wrote these on my phone and I dont get a whole lot of typing time, it'll take a few when I get the chance. I'm hoping to have something by tomorrow... but dont quote me on that.
