Smile [Q] heimdall - download kernel image from phone

I recently started experimenting with the Android kernel. I downloaded the 3.0.31 kernel (because I wasn't able to find the sources for my stock one: 3.0.31-889555) and built a kernel image (zImage) successfully.

I plan to use Heimdall to flash the kernel image on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100) but before I do this I would like to download the current kernel image from my phone.

Since heimdall is capable to flash the current kernel image, I guess it's also capable of downloading the current, is it?

Any help appreciated.

Sorry for bumping up this old thread but... do you (or anyone else) have a solution for this ?
