Kernel Update Utility Makes Flashing Kernels Easier

We’ve got some good news for both notorious kernel flashers and the ones who just started flashing. XDA-member jkoljo has created a Windows tool that makes all the command-line stuff superfluous. If you want to flash a new kernel to your Desire HD with a nice GUI, you really should take a look at this. If you’ve never heard the word “kernel” before, or don’t own a Desire HD, stay far, far away from this. If you use this on a phone other than the Desire HD, it may cause permanent damage to your device.

The tool accepts kernels in both zImage and CWM flashable zip formats and flashes them to your beloved Desire HD. The developer says he used it more times than he could count and hasn’t encountered a single bootloop or failed flash.

Requirements and download link can be found below.

  • Windows XP SP2 or higher
  • .NET 4.0
  • HTC Sync (or ADB drivers)
  • Rooted, S-OFF Desire HD

Download is available here. For more information, head over to the application thread.
