eybee1970 posted on his rom these instrucktions just want to know if this really makes it safer (alot) to use cwm wipe?

- install Abyss Kernel 4.2
- boot back in Recovery (find it under 'advanced')
- now FullWipe!!!
- Flash ROM
- reboot system
-...you are done
==> ONLY, ONLY, ONLY FullWipe with Abyss Kernel 4.2 installed!!!! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER Full Wipe with CF-Root Kernel installed!!!

Want to know cos i want to try a custom rom to make my battery better and no samsung crap and Oc? possible (is it yet on ICS=?)
Im running German ICS LPY with CF-Root..

Thanks!

yes, i can confirm that, just used it to go back 3 times from lpy, the most important poin is REBOOT RECOVERY (under advanced option) so that you got RedPill touch recovery before doing any wipe or flasing a nandroid backup of GB ROM.

that would mean with this method I could install CM9 without flashing a GB-ROM first nor use PC Odin?

Theoretically, yes. You don't need the whole Rom to switch to another Rom, just a working kernel/Recovery would do.

It's always the safest to go back to gingerbread via PC Odin though.
