After installing cwm can't boot into twrp where my previous backups are done. Can you have both methods or have to reinstall twrp with gscript?

you can, but some kernels use different wifi drivers too, so its easier right now to flash kernels thru recovery. which kernel are you referring to?

i'm referring to stock kernel and intersectRaven... i'm not good in adb, thats why i always prefer script just like your gscript or flashing through recovery... can u point me to the right direction how to flash kernel using recovery... i guess i need to compile in zip file with script/signed/etc...

For quite a while IntersectRaven's kernels have been properly zipped for easy installation via TWRP or CWM. Just copy the .zip to your Kindle,and install via your recovery. His zip will automatically update the wifi driver, as well.

However, as a word of warning... PLEASE do a recovery-based backup of your system prior to installing any new kernel. If you don't like the new kernel's performance, you can reinstall the original kernel by restoring the /boot partition from the backup you made before installing the new kernel. Also since IntersectRaven's .zip will replace your original wifi driver, make a BACKUP of your original wifi driver in case you ever want to go back to your original kernel. To do this, use something like root explorer to copy /etc/wifi/tiwlan_drv.ko to /etc/wifi/tiwlan_drv.ko.orig. Then you can copy it back if you reinstall the original kernel.

By the way, IntersectRaven's kernel will only overclock newer CPUs that are internallly flagged as factory authorized to run at 1.2 Ghz. You will still see a performance improvement with his kernel compared to stock even at 1 Ghz. Neall

Sorry, little late on the follow up question but just to be sure, if I have TWRP installed and looking to make the change to CWM I basically then would just install the APK, run the App and then just select the option to install CWM and call it a day????????

if you want to wait, sblood has included the source in the new tree, so I'm gonna compile cwm and include it in the zip so you wont have to download doomlords version. should make this process even easier. everything in 1 download!

but to answer your question, you need to download my zip, extract the gscript folder to your sdcard and install the apk, load the scripts, download doomlords recovery and put it in the gscript folder, than run it.
