Default [Q] So, how the heck do I install a custom recovery?

So, as with my Xperia Play, installing a custom recovery on my pollux_windy seems about as easy as pulling my own teeth. I honestly haven't been able to figure out how to do it yet, and all the guides I can find are incomplete/fragmented/outdated. And once installed, how do I boot into recovery?

Does anyone have a guide that works?

EDIT: Ok, got TWRP to flash via fastboot, but now I need a rom that will install. CM11 failed. *pulls out handfuls of hair*
EDITEDIT: Flashed boot.img and I think I'm good to go. Good god, I remember when this stuff used to be more straightforward. I love the Dev community, I suppose I can only blame manufacturers for this...
