Default [Q] Conflicts between System Recovery and Kernel Recovery?

Hi Guys,

I hope you spend a wonderful Sunday and you are ready and calm to answer on my doubts.

Like all of you already know, or should know, on Locked Bootlader in the process to get Root we have to instal DualRecovery on our device.

That recovery is installed in our System and not in Kernel. So after get Root, Update, Backup TA finally we can Unlock Bootlader, like I did.

Now I Unlocked my Bootloader and do not try a DooMLoRD (v11) Kernel will be a shame! ...BUT that Kernel is implemented with Recovery.

I already had an answare from funky0308 that if I will flash that kernel I will be fine. Ok, no problem, but my doubts remain anyway.

Recovery in System working differently from the Kernel one, Right?

I don't want mess up with stuff and I will be glad if someone can explain where the recovery will go after I will flash Kernel with Recovery implemented?

I will prefer to flash that Kernel, boot in Kernel Recovery and get Rid of the Recovery in System.

Is this possible? ..or I missing something?

Cheers.
IF I HELPED DO NOT SAY THANKS, CLICK IT.

Yes, you can get rid of Dual Recovery by following this step, and after wiping those files away - reboot to recovery and wipe cache and Dalvik;

Delete the following files:
/system/bin/recovery.twrp.cpio.lzma (or .tar)
/system/bin/recovery.cwm.cpio.lzma (or .tar)
/system/bin/recovery.philz.cpio.lzma
/system/bin/charger
/system/bin/ric
/system/bin/chargemon
/system/bin/dualrecovery.sh

Then inside */system/bin/ rename chargemon.stock to chargemon check its permissions (should be 755 or otherwise visible as -rwxr-x-r-x). Done!


OBS! I don't know if all of those is included in Dual Recovery for Xperia Z1 - just delete all of them that you can find and rename chargemon.stock to chargemon..
Android Devices that I am using:
1. Sony Xperia Z1 - ROM: Tweaked, debloated & rooted stock 14.4.A.0.108 / Kernel: TrinityUltimate Kernel Experimental Build
2. Sony Xperia Tablet Z - ROM: Tweaked, debloated & rooted stock 10.5.A.0.230 / Kernel: UnleaZhed XTZ v0.2
