I'll keep this simple.. This is pure Stock JB kernel with TWRP integrated.. This thread is for all our developers who want to integrate my TWRP build into their kernels.. Attaching boot.img.. KernelDevs, Extract Ramisk of recovery from it and use it

Steps to extract recovery-ramdisk
Code:
Step 1: Download Kernel Kitchen from here

Step 2; Rename the boot_twrp2.img to boot.img and put it in "input" folder in the Kitchen folder

Step 3 :Using terminal, cd to the folder where your kitchen exists and run "./menu" without quotes and Select option 1.Work with boot.img files (extract or build)

Step 4: Press enter and select 1.Extract boot.img

Step 5: Find the ramdisk.cpio.gz in out put folder.. Unpack it to find ramdisk.cpio.. Again unpacking the ramdisk.cpio, you will find sbin/ramdisk-recovery.cpio..

Step 6: Replace your recovery with this ramdisk-recovery.cpio.. You may rename it however you want.. Pack your kernel back.. Done :D
Please Note: You are always welcome to use this recovery into your kernel, provided
1. you ask me before doing this..
2. give me proper credits along with link to this thread and my sources
