I keep most of kernels on /sdcard/kernals/ directory in .zip (CWM) format.
Any chances of adding support of such files?
Adding .tar should be straightforward too

I have updated the app one more time:

v1.2.1:
added: PDA.tar and update.zip file support
added: choose file starts in /sdcard/sgs-kernel-flasher/
added: lagfix detection and warning

That means you can now select any .tar or .zip that contains a zImage and the app will automatically extract and flash that zImage.
Major break through for easy kernel flashing on i9000, Captivate, Fascinate and Vibrant- please propagate this awesome news.

Btw. the app is now on market.

I'm running the 2.2.1 firmware ( JPX trough KIES) and used the "SuperOneClick 1.5.5" application to root.
When I run the kerner installer, it would tell me that I have a lagfix installed (AFAIK I don't have any) and also tells me that my device is not rooted.
I can confirm that it's rooted by using the root-explorer and have super-user and busybox installed.

Did you see the root request dialog?

If not, you may restart the app or just have look what the superuser app says about the permissions of the sgs kernel flasher.

Does it support 'CWM' .zip files?
I mean these where not only zImage resides, but also some other thingies.

I ask this question because I wasn't able to flash SO_4_5_1 kernel using CWM file provided in this topic: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=811660
file: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1292684343
Attempt on JPX+SO_4_5_1 kernel (so basically it was an attempt to reflash of the same kernel)
Code:
zImage extraction failed!
Kernel flash failed!

Hello,

Many thanks for this so nice app .

I have to inform You that he detects lagfix is running on my phone, but that is not true.

My phone is running on 2.2.1 Froyo, XXJPUI9000, and i flashed all .PIT, PDA, MODEM and CSC files trough Odin.

I rooted My phone with CF-Root.

And ofcourse differenc is visible, I charge my phone each 3 days .

So if this BUG can be fixed would be nice.

Thanks.

I will also check that - it is only a warning message, you can ignore that for the moment.

Edit: I need some mount listings, if you have working adb, please run something like this: "adb shell mount > mount-listing.txt" and attach that file to a post in this thread. That will help me to improve the lagfix detection. Thanks.

The other thing we need is the ability to backup in a CWM compatible format. (zImage + redbendua + update-script)

This way we can still restore from a state that only boots into recovery if we flash incorrectly.
