My Question is about editing kernel's built In Recovery.
the kernel has cwm recovery but i had a new one so i want make it permanently by editing kernel's recovery
But when i replaced files i fount that the new cwm has folder etc that isn't exist in the kernel so i added it with the files in it and repacked
so the question is
Will That Make Any Thing Wrong In The Kernel?
If yes
What Would Happen If i flashed it?
and if the kernel failed to be flashed what would happen to the phone ?

The Phone Is Galaxy Y Duos

In the worst situation,your phone will get blasted and you'll suffer from Hypothermia.

Make a backup and then flash the kernel.Nothing will happen until or unless your recovery is not integrated properly.You might probably face a black screen though.

I already flashed it and recovery is working but i got strange problem that after phone boot up 3 seconds or 5 then it gave the boot animation and open again then the same give the boot animation and open and still luke that until i flash the original kernel
so where is the problem?
to know that the cwm that i add is the same files that i removed from the original kernel except the etc folder that i add .

you should not be adding etc folder... in normal boot /etc is symlinked to /system/etc
