    Please bear with my ignorance on this. I recently installed 7.1 to internal memory thanks to some help on this forum. I thought 7.1 included the OC kernel, but when I go into settings, I am only allowed to go to 925 mhz. Do I still need to install a kernel through CWR?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Yes, the default kernel allows you to go up to 925MHz (stock is 800MHz) but you need another kernel to go beyond that. Yes, you can flash the kernel from CWR per the usual procedure. :)

    I am still new at this, so please bear with me. I tried several times to flash this, and each time I reboot, I get a black screen and have to reload CM 7.1 .
    I have tried install from SD, and update from SD under CW. What is the correct procedure to add the overclock kernel? I feel like an idiot, but at least I'm getting practice at installing!

    Never mind, I've discovered the joys of ROm Manager and the CM nightlies......

    Well there you go :)

    Keep in mind though that using ROM Manager isn't quite as reliable as flashing from CWR (despite having the opposite issue earlier), so if you get an error like a boot loop you might want to reflash whatever you are installing from CWR either internal or from a card and see if that corrects the issue before moving on to other solutions.
