Default How to flash recovery on unrooted, unlocked .290 build?

Hi all - I recently took my C6906 on .757, downgraded it via FTF to .534, rooted with VRoot, backed up TA, updated OTA to .290, unlocked bootloader, and now I want to flash the Carbon ROM.

I'm used to simply flashing a recovery (spoiled by Nexus devices), so I'm seriously confused on how to go from here, considering I lost root when I unlocked my bootloader. Any tips would be greatly appreciated as to what to do from here -- I've been trying to figure it out for hours, but I'm a total Xperia noob.

Thanks in advance!
Device: Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB (flo)
ROM: CyanogenMod 11 Nightly / Stock Prerooted KOT49H
Kernel: Glitch / Stock
Recovery: TWRP modified for MultiROM

Device: Sony Xperia Z1 C6906
ROM: Stock (14.2.A.0.290)
Kernel: Stock
Recovery: Stock

Did I type something that helped you out?
