There are lots of howtos online but most of them are old with rotten links (to the downloads). In addition to how to root and upgrade and where to download the files, I'd like to know the following:
- Is the (ICS or Jelly Bean) kernel I need to download trustworthy (i.e. open source)?
- Are there any bugs associated with the kernel?
My phone is not rooted and is running firmware version 2.2.1 and kernel version 188.8.131.52.
