I guess I will be the noob first. What is the gpl? And what is the difference in the2? And how do I install this, do I just flash it? Or do I unroot then install?

I thought I understood this stuff but maybe I don't. CWM is just recovery, and doesn't run on a kernel, no? I have CWM installed and can flash any kernel, yes?

Every recovery has a kernel in it. It needs that to work properly. The kernel inside of it though can be different then the one you use with Android.

Hm, this recovery looks good. I've got an Acer 501, so I'm going to test it as soon as I copy it over. Hopefully it doesn't brick! :P
