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.

I think u can improve this app by allowing to download various kernels through app itself with permissions from developers it is a good app it will become a great app

Could you give me a link to that file you tried to flash, please?
I would like to check that.

Curious....

Would recovery still work properly in the event of a failed flash? Isn't the kernel consisting of the recovery too?

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

Hi Neldar,
Thanks for the feedback. I had some other issues with my rooting and those are fixed now. Apparently my device was not correctly rooted. Now the kernel flasher is working perfectly fine as well.

Regards,

Sometimes the recovery is still working - if the boot hangs at bootscreen, than is the recovery mostly working.


And an other update for the app:
v1.3.2:
added: update.zip backup
added: bmlwriter with verify
fixed: log auto-scroll
improved: gui responsiveness

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

I tried SO_zImage_opt_ext_root_V4_5_1.zip
Log said failed to verify flash.

Rebooted phone, and now its stuck on the Galaxy S screen. Will be booting into clockwork to try something else
