Unlocked bootloader, rooted and Installed CM11 on my Xperia S. Now I want to install PurePerformance X and can't get into CWM (lasted version - 6.0.x.x)

I tried:
- Hold vol UP while blue led
- Hold Power and Vol Down at the same time
- Tap Sony logo several times

I installed CWM with Recover X. It never works to go there after I install the system. I can only go into CWM going to Recover X procedures again. Its like its installed correctly but it doesn't stick on it.

Can I flash this kernel now? Without the need to re-install the CM 11 and gaaps and without losing user data?

This would be the kernel to flash, right?

After flashing the kernel, no need to wipe data/cache?
