    I was wondering how to make the boot.img inside the zip file after compiling the kernel source code. (It just generated zImage and many *.ko files, but I wanted to throw them into boot.img) (I tried to add some printk message and replaced corresponding .ko file inside the initramfs.cpio.gz extracted from boot.img, but the phone could not boot after flashing.. I don’t know why)
