I believe you still have to flash the kernel separate from the rom. The only difference now would be instead of fastboot flashing the kernel you flash it through recovery.

I wouldn't try anything like that yet. Wait for the dev's to set everything up. That is what I did on another phone. HTC is a bit different, may be you flash only the zip file containing the rom and kernel. I do believe that on HTC most phones do allow you to flash one file instead of having to flash separate files unless you wanted a different kernel then the one provided. You would do this in recovery by flashing a zip file.

With my Inspire, I could flash a kernel alone, an entire ROMs image files separately, or an entire package containing everything in one flash...all through recovery.

So if there is a Rom with a kernel (boot.IMG) inside it we just go to recovery install zip and I'm good? That's all there is too it

nope we need to add in the code of the updater-script. I would say better stay off until we have atleast one rom with the in-built kernel flashing.

DEVICE 1: Samsung Galaxy S2 - i9100
Recovery: CWM
OS : CM11 Weekly Builds by @Markox89
SD : 16 GB Samsung Class 4

DEVICE 2: Pantech Burst
Recovery: CWM
OS : SlimBean


DEVICE 3: Samsung Fascinate
Recovery: Devil 6.0.2.5(Touch)
OS : Android 4.2.1 (HELLY BEAN)
SD : 8 GB SAMSUNG Class 6

This makes no sense at all. If you're in Android OS, something went wrong.
