Hi

Is there a way to get a stock kernel somewhere, in the purpose of flashing it either with CWM or in Odin? Everywhere I look, the Stock Rom packages contain the kernel, but also contain system image and recovery. I need only the kernel from this to flash, is there any way to get the kernel from each of this packages, so that I can flash it alone?

open the stock firmware with 7zip and copy the boot image to desktop

Thank you for taking the time.

So "boot.img" is kernel image?

If so, then once I extract the boot.img, how do I flash it using odin?

yes boot.img is the kernel.

if you want. attach the boot.img here in a zip and i will make it for you

Thanks samersh72. I should probably learn that myself, you did enough for me already. I should be able to take it from here. Thanks again.
