HOW TO INSTALL KERNELS USING MOBILE ODIN

DO IT AT YOU OWN RISK As i have tested works perfect for me


Step 1: Download the kernel


It must be in .tar format so you can flash it using Mobile ODIN. If you have a .zip file, try to unzip it and see if there's a .tar file inside.
Step 2: Transfer the unzipped file to your device.


You can place it in your internal or external SD card.
Step 3: Launch Mobile ODIN



Grant SuperUser access when prompted.
Step 4: Select "Open file ..."



Choose the firmware you unzipped from Step 1. You will be informed about the partitions that Mobile ODIN automatically set for you. Select "OK".





Step 5: Select "Flash firmware"


Afterwards, your phone will reboot to Recovery Mode for installation of the kernel. Wait for it to finish and your phone will automatically reboot. Congrats! You just flashed a kernel using Mobile ODIN.

No need to have cwm
you can flash kernel with Mobile Odin with stock recovery too.
I would like to add in op
If kernel is flashable zip, you will not find tar inside it
In that case there are two ways to install
1.select ota/update zip option in mobile odin and flash zip directly
Or
Unzip and you will get boot.img
Flash it using kernel tab in mobile odin.
