Default Xperia Mini Pro hangs at boot after flashing other boot.img

Hi!

I wanted to flash a custom firmware, which has own boot.img. I flashed it via Flashtool and it didn't show any error. I wanted to turn it on and bah, I can't. It hangs on a screen "SONY". I can enter into fastboot mode, but I can't enter into recovery.
What should I do now?I had unlocked bootloader, so I don't know why it happened.

take out the boot.img from the zip, flash the kernel (boot.img) via flashtools, then enter recovery flash the remaining zip via rrecovery. be sure to select the right zip for your device (xperia mini pro = mango = sk17i)

That's what I wanted to do, but after flashing boot.img phone doesn't allow me to enter recovery. It shows "SONY" forever.

Solved, I've used wrong option to flash kernel. I should use "Select kernel to HotBoot" in Flashtool.
