Hello all I have looked everywhere on a way to manually patch the boot.img. I have the patch file just can't figure out how to apply it. What should I try? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Go on the recorvery --> Backup and restore --> Advanced restore --> go on the folder where is boot.img --> boot only

If you have the boot.img file, you should be able to flash it by booting into fastboot and using
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
Do not flash a different file this way though!

I have the boot.img file but I am trying to flash a boot.img.p (update patch) to the current boot.img.

For more info, I have tried flashing using the apply_patch code in cwm, and I can't figure out how to open the .p file to try to make changes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

i guess you need to edit the original boot.img and compile the patches you made in that and repack it then flash.
