Default [Tool] Backup Kernel V1

Kernel Backup V1
Backup your current firmware kernel
(This tool is for beginners who are difficult to backup their kernel)

You can backup your current kernel by this tool. Many devs are creating kernels for our SGY like Maroc-OS. So when we flashing, we need to backup our kernel to get back into our stock kernel.

-----------------------------------------------------------
How to backup
//Place Kernel_backup_V1_by_chamatht.zip on root of your SD card.
//Boot into CMW
//Select install zip from sd
//Then select Kernel_backup_V1_by_chamatht.zip
//Backup Complete
//Kernel is on root of your SD card (name is Kernel_Boot.img)

Thankz faqbly, mai77 and Koush for sources. (credits for them)

To restore
Download Kernel Update.zip
Rename Kernel_Boot.img into Boot.img
1.Turn off phone and boot into CWM
(Note: To boot into CWM press Vol Up, Home, and Power at the same time and in the stock recovery choose update from zip and select the CWM.zip)
2. Once in the CWM recovery, simply choose install from zip and select KernelUpdate.zip
(Note : Kernel Update.zip looks for a boot.img file in SD card and flashes it)
3. After successful kernel up press power to return to CWM
4. Press Reboot now, and your kernel is updated

Press Thanks if I helped you.

It should work. I tested before upload. Use skin's cwm. kernel will save on your sd card as " Kernel_boot.img"

Yup. In merruk kernel it is much easier to do it as a root shellscript. Even if mobile
