    I found the tools located here:
    "HOWTO: Unpack, Edit, and Repack Boot Images"

    to be very helpful.

    I wrote a small wrapper script to extract
    the recovery image, substitute a new kernel, and re-install it
    on the ADP1, which I use for my own kernel testing. I can post
    it somewhere if people are interested.

    I use the recovery partition instead of the boot partition.
    I leave the boot partition alone since this thing is also my
    phone and when I'm done debugging I want to get back to
    the original code and config easily.
