Steps to Flash Any Kernel:

open flashtool and click flash icon at the top and select fastboot
click reboot device via adb
wait fr a moment and click flash kernel option.. here u need to select the .img file of the kernel u want to flash..
Thats it.. simple :)

Still cannot found the kernel in zip file.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2278875

Every time try to install, face Status 7.

Try to flash with other kernel but no luck.
:(



Download the latest version of the rom again and unzip it. Then you should have the boot.img. If not download any other kernel for jelly bean for your device and flash it ;)

Afterwards flash the rom again :)

extremely sorry for the late reply... just pick up the "haida.img". do not drag and drop it, just navigate to it through the dialogue boxes after selecting fastboot mode> select kernel to flash> go to the respective directory> done!

TA-DA! :D

mi just asking one Q ( because i dont wanna create any new thread )

Why we cant flash kernel via CWM just like Samsung / lg / nexus

Thnks..

This was discussed many times and it doesn't work because we have no separate recovery partition on our phones, kernel and recovery is one partition so it's impossible :)

Hi,
I m trying to flash Cynogen Mod 12 on my Xperia L phone, using FlashTool.
However, unlike .ftf file, FlashTool is not recognising the zip. I even tried to extract the zip in a folder containing boot.img, still the FlashTool is not recognizing anything there.
Please help.

I'd suggest you flash it from the recovery. It's a more successful and preferred option.
