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

==> ONLY, ONLY, ONLY FullWipe with Abyss Kernel 4.2 installed!!!! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER Full Wipe with CF-Root Kernel installed!!!

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.

theorethically, yes. but don't take chances and go with GB kernel like abyss.... or the best is go back to a full GB kernel and do it frim there.
