This is a very short one

Pretty often I stumble upon guys having issues to flash boot.img via fastboot, especially for noobs on the block. Also when flashing new Kernels it`s handy, if you always have your current boot.img as flashable on your device in case something is going wrong or you simply don`t like the new Kernel.

So here is the very short how-to:

1. Download the BootUpdate_by_hestheone64.zip
2. Open the zip with winrar or 7zip and drag the boot.img in the zip (just below Meta-Inf)
3. Copy the zip to your SD and flash convenient in Recovery

Can`t say for sure, but you definitley need to adjust mmcblk0p for boot.img in updater script first. otherwise you might flash boot in data block or wherever

On One it sits in mmcblk0p33

So just type:

adb shell
su
cat /proc/emmc

and you should see the correct block.

It's the kernel partition if I'm not wrong.

Flash boot.img let you change the kernel.

In the future forward a dev to this ans ask if it will work on your device, it's easier since you know the dev has the device to test on

If we have s-off, can we just flash a ROM.zip with the boot.img in it and skip all these steps?
