    I would be grateful for a suggestion for a program which will backup and save my kernel. I intend to root my phone with an insecure kernel then restore the original kernel. (after I read a LOT more on the subject!)

    Thanks

    hmm, which kernel do u have at the moment? u can find the stock kernel on xda forum, u dont have to back it up.. download it, and just flash it after u've rooted the insecure kernel. u can find it here

    however, if ur planning on rooting, i'd recommend the CF root method. this way, u dont have to flash an insecure kernel and root it, then flash back stock. u just flash the CF root kernel which is (obviously) already rooted. u still need the stock kernel though, which u can find on the above link. the CF root stuff and guide is here:

    I have not received my phone yet, only ordered it yesterday so I don't know which kernel I will have. I would still like to find a program which will backup the original kernal in any case. Do you or anybody else know of such a program?
    I found this but it is no longer available (I think):

    i dont know of any such program and i dont think its necessary :) i understand ur worried about changing anything with ur new phone, but intratech (the user on xda forum) posts 100% stock kernels and firmware, and no one has had any issue with them, so dont worry about it.
