Then I read that on S-ON devices, new custom Kernels have to be flashed. The creator of the ROM provided a Kernel zip file, but on extraction, there is no boot.img file which I can flash through adb
Posting here cause I can't post in the Developer forums.
Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
With S-ON you need to extract boot.img form ROM zip and put it in same folder as fastboot and adb.Then connect your phone and in bootloader choose fastboot ( should be red fastboot usb ).
then open cmd in same folder and write
if you get some devices there some numbers then you are connected.Now you go for flashing boot.img with
fastboot flash boot boot.img
it will say ok if it is good.
Then reboot and CM would boot. It will take some time to boot first time so wait...no more then 10min.
Read this about Fastboot and ADB Fastboot setup
Everytime you flash new rom you need to do this.Even if you restore backup.BC your phone is S-ON.
