So I've unlocked my phone and flashed the newest kernel with cwm recovery from doomlord. like described in here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2620794

I'm only able to enter recovery mode during the first boot right after the flashing of the kernel via fastboot. only that time the led will turn pink.
after that, the volume up + power button method does not work for me nor will the led turn pink again during boot.
Via adb it also dosn't work because my device is not recognized. Software methods like "restart in recovery mode" in "rom manager" also do not work.

beside that, i have no write access to the system partition. making root (wich is working) useless for me.

so what am i doing wrong?

How are you flashing the kernel. Write down the exact command.

oh man. thank you for that hint. I checked my command prompt history and I saw that I had forgotten the "flash" command. I just typed "fastboot boot bootimage.img"

that is a little bit embarrassing. thank you very much for that hint. now everything is working as it should.
