1. Flash the XXLPX via ODIN. Can I do it without wipe (it's worth mentioning that I am now on CF-Root)?
2. Flash PhilZ-XWLPX-(NEE)-cwm6-1.0.tar.md5 via Odin.
Can I now wipe everything (from cache to dalvik, battery stats, etc.) via CWM like I did with the previous CF-Root (on XWLPG) without any fear of bricking?
PS: Is this Kernel rooted? [I asked because it says in the features Ready for root]. If not, how can I root it?
Thanks, Phil, for this kernel.
If you are on XWLPG, first flash full XXLPX ROM in odin (it is non wipe, but always do a backup of your data). Wipe dalvik and cache to avoid issues on migrating from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4
After that, flash PhilZ-XWLPX-(NEE)-cwm6-1.0.tar.md5 in odin or the zip version in stock recovery. No wipe needed before flash as it will be same kernel
Odin version is not rooted, but easily rooted with one of my scripts in recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1746794
Zip version can be flashed in stock recovery from your stock XXLPX. It will be directly rooted that way, no more actions needed
This version should be brick bug safe: CWM6 + patched kernel. Now if it bricks, it would probably do the same on a stock ROM
