Announcement from frapeti: [APP / Tool] Universal kernel flash
Universal kernel flash tool

Instructions:

It's pretty easy, just follow simple few steps:
- Press "Check compatibility button"
- Select a valid kernel image
- Flash
- Reboot

Screenshots:



FAQ:
Does it increase binary counter? No
Do I need to be rooted? Yes, of course.
Why is it for? With this tool you can flash kernels without a PC in your Android, easy and safer than never, just select the kernel image, flash and reboot.
Why is it safer? It has MD5 checksum to verify that your file is not corrupt, you must want to check it before flashing...
I have soft bricked my device flashing an mp3 file (?) what can I do? Flash with odin again, you can optionally flash the kernel only.

Suported devices:
GT-I9070 running Jelly Bean / Gingerbread
GT-I9070P running Jelly Bean /Gingerbread
GT-I8160 running Jelly Bean
LG Nexus 4 running Jelly Bean

* If you want to add a device to the list pm details and a kernel thread to have an example and I will update as soon as possible.

Bugs:

feedback: not working
step 1: compatibility check - pass
step 2: select a kernel - error message. no window shown, no way to choose a program to select a file to flash like in second screenshot. I have ES and stock samsung file explorer installed.
