Hi,

This tool unlock bml5 to allow writing of kernel with a simple "dd" command.

You can find also a basic update.zip for CWM that :
- Make backup of the current current
- Flash new kernel

The bmlunlock tool is in kernel_updater.zip.

How to use :
Put your zImage in the update.zip. Then, use CWM and install zip.

This tool was made by Koush (Thank to him ): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=767431
also Thanks to Supercurio for the updater idea.

Is this hard todo? You just have to open the zip(not extract) and replace it with a new zimage.
