Default [TOOL] Kernel Update Utility 0.9 - Flash kernels easily!

Kernel Update Utility 0.9


"Making kernel flashing a bit easier"

About:
This lightweight tool takes a kernel, and flashes it to your device. You can give it the kernel in zImage or CWM flashable zip format. Some people have come across bootloops when using clockworkmod to flash kernels, hopefully this tool will prove to fit better for the job. It can also push and apply kernel modules. I have now flashed a kernel using this tool more times than I can count, and not a single bootloop or failed flash.

This tool is ideal for people who do not want to mess with command lines, and people who want the job done fast and easy.

System requirements:
  • Windows XP SP2 or higher
  • .NET 4.0
  • HTC Sync (or ADB drivers)
  • Rooted, ENG S-OFF Desire HD

Quote:

It can now flash zip files that would usually be flashed in clockworkmod. Using my app to flash it should reduce the possibility of a bootloop. Also the space in filename -bug has been fixed.

e: Another update, now for selecting and applying kernel modules. Please leave feedback! Is there something I should change? Any features you would like to see in this tool?

Keep in mind that this tool can also be used for recovering from some bootloops, where kernel itself is not properly flashed. In some situations, however, boot.img corrupts in CWM flash, then you will have to restore a partial nandroid.

Well, I can enable my tool to flash a recovery, but because flashing hboot is so risky, I think I will not do that feature..

So, are people interested in a recovery flasher?

Yeah, if those files are kernels. This tool has been tested with Apache14's 1.2 and 1.5 GHz OC/UV kernels.
