RE: Need to upgrade to jessie need help

Thanks Ben, 

Actually I am using wheezy with kernel 3.2.x not the one which debian gives. So I thought of upgrading to Jessie with same kernel.

And I want to know, once support completed if I get any vulnerability. myself patch and create deb and install it will that workout. Any specific deb creation steps is available.

You can do that and it should work, but you won't be getting security fixes for the kernel.  Why do you not want to upgrade it?
