The partitions aren't going to be mounted correctly.
also, I saw a post a little bit ago that mentioned using adb to simulate volume button presses.(not sure if that's possible)
adb shell
input keyevent <volume button code>
and I also saw this post a little glimmer of hope for cwm..
(I think this is the reason the kf2 is left out.)
Try to make a backup first without flashing anything.. if that works..

Good idea about the key codes. You mean try to make a backup in twrp? ....I think i will flash the cwm recovery made for kfhd and try to get keycodes working...but not now it is 4am over here lol

you know, making a backup might hurt more than it helps... keycodes sounds better anyway. Central time that stuff rocks, we live in the same timezone. cwm comes before twrp anyway. once we have a workingish cwm, we can start to make a twrp. Knowing that we have the proper setup within a previous build of twrp means it should be easier to do, rather than figure every value out from scratch. you said touch points work correctly... I'll play with twrp when I get my replacement tomorrowish. (or later today depending on how you look at it.) I'm tired of being a leech. I want to start figuring stuff out, maybe contribute a little lol.

I pmed revkjr and asked him what the output of the button codes was in cwm so hopefully I could try that whenever my replacement is here.

Ok cool. You should ask him if the ROM will flash correctly on the kf1 with cwm or even twrp...I think the keycodes wont be too hard.

how did you get twrp running then? Why did twrp boot but cwm didn't?
did you try flashing it in boot system and recovery to get it to boot to cwm?
