Hey Guys!
I have a questions related to kernels. I want to install this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2712065

I saw that I need this custom kernel:
https://github.com/SlimRoms/kernel_sony_msm8974

I don't know how to build it. I did read that i need Linux ?! I'm not sure about this.
Anyways I still don't know how to realize this. I know that I need a .sin or .img file.
I really need help with that

After that, if I manage to flash my phone with that kernel, does it start into recovery or
is any recovery pre-installed on that kernel ?! If no, how do I install/access cwm ?

I can't find any helpful tutorials for flashing custom kernels on my phone.

I think I have this kernel accidently installed now with flashtool:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2548092
(how can i check what kernel i have and is there any stock 4.4.2 kernel maybe with cwm ?!)

The main question here is, how do I install a kernel for custom roms like cm or paranoid or togari roms, etc. ?

I am very thankful for every helpful answer!

greets

SOLVED: I found out myself. the boot.img is in the zip files -.- I am pretty dumb (Y)
