Default Can device have more than one recovery?

If I flash a different recovery, will cwm be erased?

Unfortunately, Camera has stopped.

Of course! It replaces the old recovery.

So to flash a certain kernel I'll temporarily add the derfuel recovery. And then later I can go back to cwm?

You can only have one recovery.

When flashing kernels they do not replace your recovery. They are separate images.

If you flash TWRP (A different recovery) and you have CWM installed. It will be over written.

The recovery doesn't matter when you flash kernels. Unless the developer states? :s
