Default Q: Confused about kernel an recovery

Hi guys! I'm a little confused about kernel and recovery on the z1.

On all my others phones, flash the recovery was a separate task.

Now I cant find the CWM for z1. All I read is that the DooM kernel comes with the recovery?

is this a difference on the z1 or just another method to do it?

I'm a little scared to flash a kernel that doent work and can goes to recovery either. I'm always sure that the recovery is there to help me for any bad flashing, but if now is on the kernel, if I flash a rom with a kernel without recovery.. ? what happen?

thanks again for the time guys!

Flashing DooMKerneL is another method, you can install it normally.

There is no exposed recovery on Xperia devices, so all recovery methods are some tricks that load a recovery instead of a normal ramdisk.

The fact that both the kernel and recovery are in the same image is the same on the Galaxy SII. Although stock kernel had a recovery there.
