Linux Kernel compile for Lubuntu

I need to update the HiKey970 kernel because I need to change default configuration and apply some patches.
On documentation I found however only instruction for Android

Can you explain to me what to do instead for Lubuntu?
I just need to clone the repository, compile it with make and copy the image instead of the one present under the boot folder on the board?
I need also ramdisk.img and mkbootimg like Android?

Thank you in advance

have you ever solved this problem?
i’m now looking forward to the method using my customized kernel…and facing the same problem as you…


Please have a look at this blog post. You should be able to reproduce the steps for a customized kernel there.
