Unhappy Xperia v boot problem

Hi, i have xperia V (protoype). It was working fine, until i decide to put new Android (i was 4.0.4 on it). I don't have much of experience in flashing, but i did success already with my two other phones (ARC and P ), so i thought this time will be easy as usually. but...
phone was dead as stone..i spend more than week to trying all methods what i was able to find. now it's a big mess in my head and my PC, but now i made phone to start in recovery menu. thats all. tried install different roms, cyanomodgens-nothing... it just shows me SONY-->cyanomodgen and freez. at the moment flashtool can't see my phone.
if anyone can help me what to do( step by step), how to make this phone working again -i will be very happy person.
sorry for english.

Wipe Data + Cache + System + Dalvik

i can't tell you exactly how i did it- i did it with flashboot (boot.img or something), don't remember. didn't touch the phone for week, because i don't know what and how to do. as i said, i need step-by-step advice from beginning. if anyone will help me-i will be sooo happy

1. Is your bootloader unlocked - and did you test if your BL is/was unlockable?

If BL is unlocked correctly:

2. Try to flash another kernel in recovery,such as http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2223534
Then try to install a CM-ROM for example.

1. i did kernel install
2. CM install shows me some errors. can you drop me link for rom, please?
p.s. tried another CM-and again: "sony"->"cyanogenmod"->blank screen (phone is on)

well, i did unlock ( i was thinking i did it-got code, entered it). and now i got message on flashtool
- Reading device information
29/018/2014 19:18:27 - INFO - Unable to read from phone after having opened it.
29/018/2014 19:18:27 - INFO - trying to continue anyway
29/018/2014 19:18:32 - INFO - Processing loader.sin
29/018/2014 19:18:32 - INFO - Checking header
29/018/2014 19:18:32 - ERROR - Error in processHeader : 6 : The handle is invalid.
29/018/2014 19:18:32 - INFO - Your phone bootloader cannot be officially unlocked

when i do that "fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xxxxxx" it says "phone is already unlocked! "

yes, i tried different kernels.

there are so many files with *.img, sin, elf, ftf -i don't have clue what has to be done.

when phone was OK i checke in service (?) menu and it was "bootloader unlock allowed-yes"

i'm trying to answer as much as i can.
