Can kernel source from copyleft repo working with stock rom for xz2

Hi 

 

I'm try to compile kernel from copyleft repo on github for xperia xz2,

 

The compilation was success without errors

 

I have repack the boot image from firmware that download from xperifirm then replace zImage with mine and pack it back and flash it, but the phone is not boot (always showing the "your device is corrupt" screen the power off itself)

 

I wonder that the source code from this repo can be use to build the custom kernel for stock firmware or only the source from "kernel" repo is compatible to use with stock firmware?

Hi,

 

the source from kernel-copyleft is the copyleft for the Sony Sw release while the kernel git (support for XZ2 is work in progress) is used for the Open Devices release

Any update on bootloader for xz2?

Does the latest version for H8266 (51.1.A.4.265_1313-4799_R5A) able to use custom kernel?
