I do apologize I've personally never seen a rom come with a zimage before I've always seen it come already as a boot.img. so I apologize to the previous member I ranted about.

I cant find any libs/modules in the kernel zip. There is only the zimage and gipo-keys.kl in system/usr/keylayout (and of course META-INF, but I think that isn't important).

he is looking at a samsung rom touch wiz and it uses zimage not the boot image like aosp roms do and you dont have to flash any other modules like wifi or lib files they are in the rom. the zimage is the kernel so just switching thoughs will work


so zimage from kernel zip file put in to rom.zip will do what he wants

just swap zimage thats all and META-INF is used for the flashing process just leave it alone

One more thing I am not yet clear about:

Do I have to copy the zimage from the kernel zip or from the extracted kernel and do I have place it in the working folder of the rom or in the rom zip (or does it not matter)?

the easy way for would be to double click your kernel zip folder then double click your rom folder have them side by side and drag zimage from kernel zip in to rom zip and drop it when finished just close rom zip and flash now as for working folder im assuming your useing a kitchen whitch i would think it has a spot for kernel so if there is a spot with zimage i would say you shoild be able to change it there as well

so do I now have to copy it to the working folder (i'm using dsixda kitchen) or do I have to copy it to the flashable zip of the rom?
and does it matter if I copy it before or after adding root permissions and busybox?

Two more questions:

1. Do I still have to add CWM or is it included in zimage?

2. My rom is about 850Mb large. I've seen other XWLS8 roms and they are 400-550Mb large.
So are there any tricks to reduce the size of my rom?

I think those are all questions for now

yes after

yes cwm is in zimage

if you want smaller rom you can remove the apks not needed or the ones you do not need/use wallpapers,samsung apps ect. that is what most do for smaller rom sizes you can remove any app aslong as it is not needed to run the rom
