Unhappy [Q] Boot in Recovery Mode (With Broken Volume Down)

Someone Help Me Please!! I'm Begging.

I was able to Root my phone and install CWM Recovery.

I flashed a certain ROM and I accidentally choose the step for Unlocked Bootloaders, then I got a boot loop.
My volume down button is broken so I can't boot into recovery thru hard buttons.

Is there any other way to Boot into Recovery Mode? I already tried using ADB Commands, it doesn't work for me. Though I tried ADB with other phone and worked.

My phone is an Xperia Mini Pro SK17i.

My frnd also had exactly the same problem. He is using Xperia ray .he told he could enter in recovery mode by repeatedly pressing home button.
Try and let me know.

The home button doesn't work for me. I guess it doesn't work on SK17i.

When I bricked my phone ADB was the first thing that comes to my mind since my volume down is broken. But ADB can't detect my device and whenever I plug it thru USB it just reboot the phone on the SONY logo. Nothing happens and not a single ADB Command works.

I hope someone can give me an alternative. Or is there something that I miss?

Well I m not sure about what I am advising
My friend can boot into recovery using home button for sure, maybe it depends on kernel (or the recovery version) too. So why not flash a different kernel (which includes recovery :: almost all custom kernels have that, not the stock one) using fastboot mode and then give it a try.

I also found the following command
fastboot reboot -bootloader
although it didn't worked on my xperia Ray (assuming bootloader here refers booting into recovery)

Dude just flash stock.ftf
Then root it
Flash custom ics kernel (included cwm in all kernel)
Then using xposed modules add advanced reboot menu
And then choose reboot to recovery
And i don't think we need volume buttons in whole process
