Default [Q] 2nd bootloader again? Safe to flash?

I've already rooted, installed fire flash, flashed 2nd boot loader and twrp, flashed cm11. My question is do I have to do the 2nd boot loader thing through fire flash again if I want to flash a new ROM or can I just go straight to recovery and wipe and flash?

You just go straight into recovery and flash it, ROMs overwrite the boot.IMG that gets flashed in the original process anyways and the stack override is reapplied by the ROM's update-tools script so all is good. In layman's terms, just flash the new ROM from twrp, just clear your cache and dalvik cache when you flash.
