Used CM11, Help switching back to TWRP Backup

So I finally tried some AOSP, but missed my camera immensely so I went to switch back to my backup that I made in TWRP.

Unfortunately AOSP roms use CWM recovery and it won't recognize my TWRP so I've tried to redo the Dual Recovery method but since I no longer have stock kernel it fails.

Now I've also tried to use fastboot to flash a boot.img which I thought was a stock kernel....but obviously I was wrong or it didn't want to work.

Either way as of now I'm using FlashTool to flash stock image, then root, then install DualRecovery again and THEN restore backup.

Does anyone know where I went wrong and hopefully provide a faster solution in case I go back to trying ASOP again? Maybe backup in CWM next time?

Now I do have to flashable DualRecovery.zip that I did try in CWM but it didn't work either, I'm guessing since I didn't have stock kernel...

Thanks in advanced. Why didn't Sony just have a dedicated recovery partition!

Thanks, I thought about that but I didn't want any other kernel than stock. Couldn't find stock, but I went the long route and now I'm back in business!

the recoveries in the original development sections are actualy stock kernels with recovery, you could use those instead if you dont want dooms modded/custom kernel

Well I did try to use the dual recovery but it didn't work. It says it is only for stock kernel so I didn't expect it to, but I had to try...

@ZPaul2Fresh8

EDIT: DON'T INSTALL IF YOU STILL WANT TO USE CM!!!
It won't boot the system of cm if you flashed the twrp img, just flash it if you want to go to a backup!

"
It was very easy for me, at the end i had a twrp 2.7.0.0 in my cm11'd Z2, you need pc, and usb cable, and fastboot and adb drivers, lol its way easier than flashing .ftf, go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2764971 and download the zip and extract it, follow this tout: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1752270 and you will be all good...
