Angry [SCRIPT] KERNEL FLASHER- IMG,ELF AND SIN files ( V2.0) 2011 & 2012 Xperias

Presenting Ghostfreak's KERNEL FLASHER



Disclaimer
Code:
 Make sure you have bit knowledge of android and adb functioning before using this tool. If you mess up with something, I will be in no way responsible for it but will try to help you as much as possible :)
About ADB:

Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets you communicate with an emulator instance or connected Android-powered device.
Find more here.


About the tool:

It is an executable application and I have included the required things with it but make sure to install all the required drivers. This tool can be used for the following things:
+ Flashing .img files.(Includes, system, userdata and kernel)
+ Flashing .sin files.(Includes, system, userdata and kernel)
Works for on ALL XPERIAs........!!!



How to use this tool and what are the requirements for it?



Before using this tool, make sure you have:
+ A rooted phone(all it's functions are for rooted phones) with USB debugging enabled.
+ Phones drivers installed.
+ A recovery installed.(CWM recommended)
+ Basic knowledge of android, adb and fastboot.
+ A working Mind.(Includes Common sense).


STEPS TO FLASH :

-----------------.IMG FILES -------------

Extract the files using Winrar
Rename your kernel to "boot.img"(Incase it's some other name)[FOR V2.0 you need not Rename,it'll be flashed automatically]
Place it in the IMG folder
Start the Batch File
Press 1
Follow the Instructions IMP
Click ENTER
Done !!

-----------------.SIN FILES --------------

Extract the files using Winrar
Find a KERNEL .FTF file
Select it and extract using any Archiver like Winrar
You'll find the "kernel.sin" in that
Rename your kernel to "kernel.sin"(Incase it's some other name)[FOR V2.0 you need not Rename,it'll be flashed automatically]
Place it in the SIN folder
Start the Batch File
Press 2
Follow the Instructions- IMP
Click ENTER
Done !!


-----------------.ELF FILES --------------
Extract the files using Winrar
Rename your kernel to "boot.elf"(Incase it's some other name)[FOR V2.0 you need not Rename,it'll be flashed automatically]
Place it in the ELF folder
Start the Batch File
Press 3
Follow the Instructions IMP
Click ENTER
Done !!




What are the features not working?

I've tested everything working but still if you find something report here.


Download Section:

Get the KERNEL FLASHER TOOL V2.0 HERE

FAQ:

Q. This function doesn't work. What now?

A. Just report here and i'll fix it.




Important notes and tips:



1. While you boot in fastboot mode please wait for some time till the PC recognizes your phone and loads the appropriate drivers.(Only first time needed)
2. Make sure you close all the adb based tools before this like SUS, PCC, Flashtool, Rooting Toolkits, etc. Or else go to TaskManager in your PC and end the adb.exe and fastboot.exe processes.
3. Always make a backup before doing anything

See... We are not here to compare this tool with flashtool. Flashtool is really a great tool and we respect the dev like bin4ry, androxyde and doomlord and others who made the tool. This tool is just a small tool if someone specifically needs for flashing any kernel. Please never ask the advantages of this over flashtool.
ThankYou
