    Hey fellas :)

    My S3 had to go back to sammy for repairs, so I've been rocking a GNex again and playing around with building kernels for it.

    I can build no problem, but does anyone know how you get from the resulting zImage to a flashable .zip (via boot.img)?

    I know I can just fastboot the zImage but I'd like to learn the "proper" way :rolleyes:

    Anyone have experience here?

    Honestly this is an awful place to ask. This forum is d-e-d

    Glad to have you on the gnex though even if it's only for a moment!

    Yeah it pretty much is unfortunately. Maybe ask in the Verizon Gnex its a little more lively plus it should be the same process since kernels are cross carrier.

    I got this awhile ago, but I figure I'll post it up anyway:

    There's a version of koushes AnyKernel you can use

    Super simple, running my own kernel
