I Guess you are on Un locked Boot loader.
You can flash this kernel, i think its pretty stable and working fine. You will get TWRP too. Or Not, its your wish. Anyways Both will work.

Now, What i normally do is delete the files in phone memory.Then boot into recovery do a factory reset or Mount /system , /cache, /Data and format. Triple format to make sure everything is wiped. Factory Reset wont be enough.

Now flash the ROM which you like. It will be like fresh installation, there wont be any leftovers from previous ROM.



Sony Xperia ION(LT28h)
Android Version - JB 4.1.2
Kernel - Ghost Kernel Final - CWM + TWRP
Tweaks - init.d + build.prop
Bootloader Status - Un-Locked
Firmware - FX5280 Build - 6.2.B.1.96


Hit Thanks, If i Helped you

Same here bro, mine is BL unlocked. Im now running on stock rooted ROM and using the same kernel i sent you in previous post.
so its stock kernel and stock ROM. and advantage is you have TWRP with the stock kernel.
