Default S2W on S-On stock ROM ?

Hi.
My power button is kind of broken and before it breaks completely, i want to enable S2W on my phone.
Its S-ON and i dont want to S-Off it. Its kind of risky i think.. I have rooted my phone successfully by HTC-dev unlocked bootloader.
Hboot: 2.02.0002
Sense: 3.6
Android: 4.0.4

I just want to get S2W functionality on my phone. I read about this here and i got choice i guess:

1) Flash a custom ROM
>> Will this work with S-ON ? I have to flash the kernel manually, right ?

2) Flash just the kernel that supports S2W
>> Is there any kernel that i can flash manually that includes S2W and works with stock ROM ?

Thanx in advance...

you can flash a kernel with s2w, but will need to follow instructions to get the kernel booting on your phone with s on. zimage injection does not work with s on
You will have to repack the kernel and flash modules, like on hox

ok i flashed vipervivo ROM but battery life is pretty bad.. S2W works good..
so what happens if i restore the nandroid of original stock ROM and flash only the kernel from the ViperROM (boot.img) manually using fastboot ? how can i get modules for that ?

Viper uses redux kernel so of you flash that it will work. There's a separate kernel thread, you can find kernel and modules in the zip. There's a full boot.img in the redux zip

Correct. You might need to flash the sense 3.6 version to have wifi working. sense 4 and 3.6 use different wifi drivers
