Hi Bann. I moved this to the All Things Root forum
for you. Did you get your phone fixed?
Read through this root and rom guide
. It may answer a lot of your questions.
I recommend TWRP recovery over any other. Its faster, easier to use and does a better job of wiping. If you read the flashing instructions with most roms they recommend TWRP. A kernel with BLN, I'm not sure. I think BLN is usually integrated into the rom but I don't know if AOKP has it. I've been using the CM 10.1 rom
