You're so fast, I'll test with CM12.1. Thanks!

Edit : If I already have TWRP 2.8.x it's no require to flash FOTA formater right?

The cleaner is unneeded, flashing is enough.

What I could advise would be to make a final backup
with the one version of TWRP, move it to a computer,
then update to have a way back.

I have restored an old backup with the 3.0.0 version,
so completely doable.

I have CM13.0 and I had TWRP 2.8.7.0 and I did this :

Flash FOTA cleaner
Reboot to recovery ( CM recovery )
then apply update , TWRP3
reboot

I tried "reboot to recovery" in CM recovery but still it was CM recovery ! I rebooted and tried to boot into recovery using volume keys but still the same !
so I booted into ROM and tried again and it worked !

Thanks Adrian ! <3

I don't know if is a general problem of TWRP 3.0.0 or not but in other devices in this version of TWRP aroma archives don't work.
Someone confirm this.

Helium kernel is a kernel, TWRP recovery is a recovery, they won't delete each other.
The TWRP recovery will be flashed to the FOTA partition so it can't be lost with kernel / ROM update.
