Default [HELP] CWM on xperia J Locked BL 11.2.A.0.31

Hi everyone, I'm trying to install a CWM recovery on my Xperia J with locked BL. I'm in 11.2.A.0.31.

I followed these steps : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2333078

And I'm stuck at the step 6. On flashtool, I see this :

23/059/2014 20:59:18 - INFO - Selected ST26i / 11.0.A.7.5 / CE

23/000/2014 21:00:24 - INFO - Checking header
23/000/2014 21:00:25 - INFO - Flashing data

And my phone doesn't not respond after that. What did I do wrong? How to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance !

Like I said, I followed this tutorial (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2333078) and they ask to flash the recovery.tft file at step6.

And the flash does not complete. It stays so and my phone freezes until I disconnect it that aborts the flash but I waited 30 minutes before I disconnect it.

And my phone is not broken after this fail. I reboot it and it simply starts again without problem...

What do you mean, recover your phone? Enter in recover mode?
And what can I do with the update service? I already launch it but my phone already has the last update.

so are you telling me, your phone boot & working normally ? then you don't need re-flash 2nd ftf file ( "JB31.ftf" ) or SUS.
then try again with tutorial. ( flash tool not properly working with windows 8 )

I'm on windows 7.

And yes, my phone works totally fine. BUT I do want to boot into CWM ^^ and that doesn't work. I'm doing again and again this tutorial : install.bat works great but then I need to flash this recovery.tft because the CWM is not definitive as I understood. So I turn off my phone and connect it with vol- pressed, flash begins then stops... Weird.
I can unlock my bootloader but I would not want to. If nothings works, I'll do it...

To any1 else having this problem, I would suggest unlocking bl cuz it opens up so much.
