Download Stock Kernel For Samsung Epic 4G Touch
Having problems after rooting your Samsung Epic 4G Touch? This is one of the main concerns for new comers into the Android rooting world. Now, thanks to XDA member bubby323 we now have an un-rooted stock kernel available to flash via ODIN.
If you get any issue during or after rooting your phone, you will have a way to restore the kernel back to its original state. The process is simple if you have any previous experience using ODIN.
Let the developer know your feedback please.
