Re: Kernel Modules in Nandroid-Backup?
The nandroid backup contains the whole rom, kernel and also the modules .... If you restore a nandroid always flash the boot.img that is backed up in the nandroid folder. The modules are already inside.....

Guys, how can i make backup only on the kernel modules instead of making a full nandroid backup? Right now i'm on ViperX407 with stock kernel, and want to test other kernels, so i don't want to restore full backups just for the kernel if i need to switch to stock kernel.
Is copying /system/lib/modules folder enough?

Or if anybody got a flashable zip with ViperX 4.0.7 stock kernel + modules, it would be nice to share it

Thanks a lot for the reply Hofs!

I found this zip on my drive, but i wasn't sure if this will work on ViperX.

Thanks again!
