Flash Kernels Easily With Kernel Update Utility Tool!
If you’re a frequent kernel flasher or just starting out, there is now a lightweight Kernel Update Utility Tool for Windows, courtesy of XDA forum member jkoljo.

Requires Windows XP SP2 or higher, .NET 3.0 or higher and HTC Sync (or ADB drivers).
