I have an HTC Hero GSM with CyanogenMod 7.1.0 (stable). Before i had elelinux mod (

This thing is, after installing CyanogenMod i still have FlyKernel-13.

Should the kernel be changed to the cyanogenmod one? (Screenshot here: )

I have some stability problems with the phone rebooting when using GPS, i'm afraid that's causing it...

Where can i download the correct kernel ?

Hmm. How did you install CM? A normal install shouldn't have kept the kernel, in fact I'm surprised it would even work with that kernel. – Matthew Read Oct 21 '11 at 16:27
Recovery -> Flashed. – NeTeInStEiN Oct 21 '11 at 16:47

Some phones' partitions have a separate partition for the kernel (often called "boot") that is separate from the one that holds /system.

Unzip the CynanogenMod - there should be a boot.img inside. If you have fastboot and know how to use it, you can flash boot.img with ./fastboot flash boot /path/to/boot.img(You will need to be S-OFF for this; sounds like you are.)

Another option is to go back to stock & flash CM again. If you're flashing CM over top of itself you may be able to get away without wiping /data (you may still want to wipe /cache)

Did another thing, downloaded Kernel Manager - - and downloaded kernel and flash through there. Worked smoothly (ok, not at first, but the second try worked!).
