Ok, first of all, I finally got my Galaxy Player working (thanks thanks for the dump you provided me)! So the next releases will be tested before uploading it.
For backup the kernel, the best to do is open the firmware .tar o .tar.md5 file and extract zImage file. Then, in linux, you can do:
tar cf zImage.tar <path-to-zImage>
You will get a .tar file containing only the kernel, flashable from odin3.
Don't bother testing the initial upload, it won't boot.
