So on this two step booting process, is that why I somehow have TWO recoveries installed at the same time? I installed DoomKernel as part of my original rooting process. I then installed Monx Rom, which installed TWRP. Using Rom Manager, I tried to put CWM back. Now, whenever I reboot to recovery, CWM will come up, but when I reboot system from CWM, it boots to TWRP. From there, when I reboot system, it then boots up to system. Some weird side effects to this too. I lose some installed apps when I finally get back to Android. RSA Secure ID and Go Launcger Ex seem to be the two that are constantly being "forgotten" when I go through this cycle. Also, I did a "Erase SD" from the settings menu. All was good, Ext SD was functioning fine, nice and clean. Then, Reboot recovery and go through the who double recovery cycle and WHAM! My ext sd has ALL the data I erased back on it.

So, is this double boot process you speak of responsible for this behavior?

Thanks,

LOL !

As for the dual recovery problem, i'd a similar problem on a Sony Tablet S , one boot cycle i had root and X number of apps, on the second boot i had no root and Y number of apps.
Factory reset , full re-flash, factory reset and finally root was the only way I got it back to normal.

Afaik, rom manager will install a recovery. tar format of recovery which works on chargemon hacking. Bcz we don't have a separate partition for recovery here. So that's why cwm exist in your system and twrp in your kernel :P

But we have FOTA kernel partition do we not? Wouldn't we be able to utilise that for dualbooting?

I was just thinking about this while looking at the ROMs on offer at the moment. The googymax kernel I had on my S3 was great as it allowed me to use a stock ROM I could quickly boot in to and record in amazing quality instead of the custom ROM as that used the CM camera which couldn't use the same drivers as the official camera. The kernel also messed with my partitions and uninstalling it led me to have two recoveries, a CWM and a TWRP.

I'd love to see multiboot so I still have the bonus of a custom ROM but still have the option to boot to stock if I want better camera stuff.
