Service [Q] Kernel installation overwrites my currently installed Rom

Hey Guys,
first things first: I am Using a European Droid Razr (xt910).
ROM: cm-11-20140627-NIGHTLY-umts_spyder
Gapps: gapps-kk-20131208-no_set_metadata
Kernel: JBX-Kernel-3.3-Hybrid-Spyder-4.4_2014-06-16

Today i rooted my razr and tried to install a custom rom with safestrap. I Did everything like it was explained in this GUIDE and it worked fine. The rom worked but i noticed a faster battery drain.

To fix this i tried to install this KERNEL but after installing it with safestrap the OS (Cm11) i installed before was gone. I am pretty new at this stuff and couldnt find a solution so far.
I wiped my phone a couple of times and everytime i tried to install the Kernel after CM11, my fresh CM11 was gone so i had to install CM11 again and afterwards JBX was gone. Pretty sad :c

CM11 itself is working fine and the installation of JBX-Kernel Hybrid worked fine too, but with the new Kernel my OS/CM11/ROM is gone.

I hope you can help me, i couldnt ask my question in the developers forum cause i just created this account.

You are not wiping your system in the process. Are you?
My friend told me,there was life outside the internet and that I should check it out.
I said "Cool.! Send me the link. !!"
