I am not sure if someone posted something similar or not.

Anyways.

This ZIP file does not have a KERNEL in it, it is just a ZIP with empty boot and system folder. The META-INF contains a script that will copy everything in boot to your \boot in your ROM and everything in system to your \system in your ROM.

NOTE: It will overwrite any files that have the same file name in the same folder. So, yes, you can use it for other than updating kernel, say copying a file to a specific folder in \system partition, or \boot partition.

Just open with 7-zip, drop zImage file into the boot folder, then drop modules in the system\lib\modules folder. Copy the zip file to your SD, then run Clockwork Recovery, and install the zip.

It doesn't have to be signed?

Code:
ui_print("Welcome to MDJ Kernel Updater");
mount("MTD", "boot", "/boot");
mount("MTD", "system", "/system");
ui_print("Copying zImage...");
package_extract_dir("boot", "/boot");
ui_print("Copying modules...");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
unmount("/system");
unmount("/boot");
ui_print("All Done...");
I don't see anything in the updater-script that requires signing.
