Smile [Q] How do I package a zip file from the boot.img produced from kernel compile?

Hi,

I have compiled a note 3 kernel and packaged up a boot.img. I would like to flash via CWM Recovery with a zip file. How do I take the boot.img that was generated and place it within a zip for flashing? Is there some signing that needs to take place? I've noticed a META-INF directory in some kernel binaries that I've downloaded and checked.

Thanks for any help!

I'm not quite sure yet on how to zip the newly packaged boot.img into a zip for flashing with CWM, but I did figure out how to flash regardless. CWM simply does this too.

adb push boot_repacked.img /sdcard/
adb shell su -c "dd if=/sdcard/boot_repacked.img of=/dev/block/platform/dw_mmc.0/by-name/BOOT"
