Default [Q] Quick rooting order Q

I'm coming from S3, so things here are completely different.
So, I'm on stock UK .55 Firmware.
I want to RomAur and DoomKernel.
So:
1 - unlock bootloader (Fastboot etc is confirmed working).
2 - fastboot flash doomkernel 0.9 (Z2 kernels contain the recovery as well? - they were seperate on S3)
3 - reboot to the new CWM recovery.
4 - recovery flash RomAur.

Have I got this right?
No need for SuperSU as RomAur is already rooted with it.

Thanks

Here's what I did

1. unlock bootloader
2. fastboot flash 402 stock kernel + baseband (to get baseband) FTF
3. fastboot flash modified stock kernel by doomlord
4. reboot into CWM
5. recovery flash RomAur

You'll end up with 402 baseband, 402 rom. You can optionally, at the end flash the proper doomkernel v06+. I think you can go to the doomkernel instead of the modified stock kernel, just not how I did it.

Also, make sure you remove your SD-Card before you unlock your bootloader.

Coming from HTC or Samsung, the key to remember is that recovery is part of the kernel for Sony devices.

Thanks, I thought kernel/recovery came together. Is the baseband bundled with the kernel/recovery too then?
So bootloader is now unlocked

It does on Sony but on Samsung and HTC you can flash a recovery separately from kernels and vice versa. Just follow the steps it should go smoothly.

Quick link to the 402 stock kernel + baseband.ftf?

thanks

Edit - I'm guessing that you download the full firmware .ftf and selectively flash the kernel/baseband?

you can flash the full 402 FTF but instead you can also just flash the 402 kernel + baseband file I linked. Seemed easier to me.

Can you fastboot flash an .ftf file or do you need to use flashtool?
