[Q] Xperia T - Recovery booting problems

The problem

I have a rooted Xperia T, unlocked bootloader, and now I would like to flash a CM rom (10.1.3 stable). I have attempted to use some tutorials to simply boot into recovery using GooManager (flashing TWRP) or ROM Manager (flashing CWMR), but neither of these seem to work - when I attempt to boot into recovery, my phone simply reboots normally.

I then have tried to flash CWMR from my computer (I have a mac), and I can do fine until I reach a message in terminal detailing a failure that I can't seem to find elsewhere on the internet. (See screenshot)

So, I have hit a dead end - can't flash recovery on device, can't flash recovery via desktop.

Details

USB debugging is enabled
When I am in fastboot the LED is blue (correct fastboot, I rooted my phone)
I have downloaded the CM .zip, the necessary gapps, and have backed up my apps 'n data with TB and simply copying files
I renamed the recovery on my desktop from 15102012.img (as I downloaded it) to cwmrecovery.img for ease of use

What is the problem on my device and on terminal?
What can I do to fix either?
Is there a step I have missed?
Have I missed a really obvious detail (if so, I feel really bad...)

If you need anything else to help me, just let me know.

Thanks guys.

I would say, try to do it on a native Windows 7 pc. No VMware or something. That's the most safe/relieable option you have.

Alright, I returned to the problem and found a solution:
I installed TWRP via Flashtool for mac, and from there it all went swimmingly. The fact that I forgot to put the CM ROM on my phone was a little stupid, but that too worked out in the end.

Ops...

Just a thing: on CM 10.2, have you got problems with microphone? I've used CM starting from last release (11) and I've always found that mic gain is too high. This cause that every record I do is too overdriven.

Can you test it, recording a vocal track very close to mic? I've always liked AOSP based ROM, but this issue made me came back to stock ROM.

Thanks in advance for the reply!
