i dont know. I have installed Cyanogenmod and have to restore my stockfirmware because auf a bad vcf export. But if i dont touch the boot partition i cant start the stockfirmware after restore.

So i just want to be sure that nothing can happen if i restore /boot

Boot and recovery are on different partitions, and recovery had its own kernel.

You can wipe boot and still enter recovery -- that's what it's designed for.
