Hello,

I would like to backup my stock kernel, before flashing a custom rom. Is it possible?

You don't need to do that. Just download the stock rom/kernel for your phone. As far as I know all kernels are the same and there's no difference depending on your region. Remember your kernel version and just download the kernel with the same build number from xda for example

I see. What if I could not find my kernel version and I wanted to extract it from my phone? Is it feasible?
