Hi,
i'm trying to install AOSPA on my Android, and for this I need a kernel with CWM on my device. To flash the kernel .zip, I think that I need CWM, but how I can install CWM on my device? Should I flash the boot.img contained in the .zip of the kernel via flashtool?

You should first make sure you have unlocked the bootloader. If your device is unlocked then you can flash boot.img on fastboot mode from flashtool or adb

What about the other files in the .zip (like the system folder)?

After you have unlocked the bootloader flash boot.img. That will give you CWM. I can recommend Phantom latest kernel version After reboot use CWM to flash AOSP on it. You need to place AOSP on the memory card or internal memory before though.

Sorry forget to mention that. First copy the zip file on your external SD card. Then flash boot.img. After you flash the boot.img. You will get CWM. Press volume down buttom multiple times to get into the CWM. After you get to the CWM install the zip. You are done now.

P.S.: The zip contain modules for wifi. If you haven't flash the zip file you won't get wifi working. At any time you can flash the zip file.
