Hello !
I'm having the same issue, my Xperia Z2 (fw 23.0.1.A.0.167) won't boot into recovery, I tried every method possible but the light never turns green on start.
Could you please tell me how you fixed yours ?
Thanks in advance !

Recovry partition isnt supported unless suported by the kernel

M5-kernel for lolipop CM12 supports this but thats CM12 and not stock

I recomend using one of the many adv stock kernels since they are bundled with a recovery

Hello friends I have the same problem, my xperia z2 isn't booting into recovery mode neither by the hardware keys nor by adb although the usb debugging is turned on, when I use "adb reboot recovery" cmd the phone boots up normally.

Note: the notification light doesn't light when the phone boots.
Another question: if I flashed acustom recovery could I receive the official lollipop update?
Please help me...
