If you don't know about the complete specification of your hardware then don't use this method.And this source build will lack some additional drivers and feautures which is added by ubuntu later.This may be avoided by compiling the ubuntu specific kernel source (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Source Code) but that's not my intention here because the method #1 is the best approach to do that.
