    I am trying to compile Linux kernel for my Samsung Galaxy 5 with full Netfilter support:
    The phone specifications are:

      Model number : GT-I5503
        Firmware version : 2.1-update1
        Baseband version : I5503DDJG5
        Kernel version : 2.6.29-perf root@SE-S605 #5
        Build number : ERE27
    I downloaded **** and **** from as they contain the required kernel trees for the samsung phone, and did the following steps:

    I modified the .config file for enabling full netfilter support and then for ****

    root@preetam:~/GT-I5500_OpenSource_Kernel/kernel# ./
        root@preetam:~/GT-I5500_OpenSource_Kernel/kernel# ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=~/myandroid/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.0/bin/arm-eabi- make

    Here i chose the toolchain from android source.

    Now i got the required output, i.e.

     CHK     include/linux/compile.h
          Kernel: arch/arm/boot/Image is ready
          Kernel: arch/arm/boot/zImage is ready
          Building modules, stage 2.
          MODPOST 30 modules
    I copied this zImage in the phones sdcard, and tried to flash the kernel using **SGS Kernel Flasher**. The phone rebooted, but i could still see the old kernel version in the settings... And there is no netfilter(iptables) functionality.

    I followed the same steps with ****

    preetam@preetam:~/GT-I5503T_OpenSource_Kernel/kernel$ ./
        root@preetam:~/GT-I5503T_OpenSource_Kernel/kernel# find . -type f -name
