So i m using XWLPX official ROM and used your ROOT method 1 given in your rooting forum to root my phone.. Now if I want to use your CWM 6.0, should I change anything?
Or direcly install it using stock recovery? And if I use CWM to install any zip after that and it has the wipe command, will my phone be brick proof?

I tried CF-Root method to root my phone originally and it wouldn't boot at all. Luckily would still go into download mode and had to flash a standard complete s2 firmware to get the phone working again without nfc feature (stock nfc firmware wasn't available until a helpful xda user posted it a week or two later). I guess i will stick with temporary cwm.
I have XWLPG at the moment. I read the topic and I am pretty sure that it's the right thing, I'm just waiting for confirmation.
So, the following procedure to upgrade to XXLPX and then flash this kernel is ok?
1. Flash the XXLPX via ODIN. Can I do it without wipe (it's worth mentioning that I am now on CF-Root)?
2. Flash PhilZ-XWLPX-(NEE)-cwm6-1.0.tar.md5 via Odin.
Can I now wipe everything (from cache to dalvik, battery stats, etc.) via CWM like I did with the previous CF-Root (on XWLPG) without any fear of bricking?
PS: Is this Kernel rooted? [I asked because it says in the features Ready for root]. If not, how can I root it?
Thanks, Phil, for this kernel.
