Im trying to flash a custom rom in my xperia j.
as im a full NEWBIE, i took help of forums on xda.

0. I have flashtool and Android SDK.
1. I downloaded ROM ( X fusion)
2. I downloaded cm10 and gapps.
3. My mobile is already rooted and i unlocked its bootloader.
4. I installed CWM from both mobile and pc.
5. My problem : When i power off and press power + volume up, it wont go in recovery and boots normally.

My phone is stock jellybean.
Well im a real beginner in these things so i wanted to do it to learn it but i need help.

Try when you see Sony logo rapidly press volume down. How I do it:
Press power button until it vibrates (release power buton)
Rapidly press volume down till it go in CWM.
Good Luck!

No worries @AdarshJKC98 It's all about Trial & Error, Here's how i install & Use CWM

Ensure Unknown Sources is enabled & Ensure Debugging is also Enabled, You must be rooted, Once you've made sure all of that go ahead and turn your device off, or just take your battery out, Place the USB Sync cable into your PC and go ahead and Boot up Flashtool,Once done so place the Micro USB end into your device and Hold Volume +, If done so correctly a Blue LED will light up, Click the thunderbolt icon on flashtool and select 'Fastboot Mode' And then click on 'Select Kernal To Flash' once done so find the Boot.img i have given you (Link provided below) Once the kernal has been flashed unplug the micro usb cable and go ahead and power on your device
How do i open up CWM on my device

It's simple once you have powered on your device a Purple LED on the Illumination bar Should illuminate keep pressing Volume + or Volume - Either should do the trick, the LED Should then light up Blue, Once done go ahead and use the steps provided to flash your ROM

Unhappy
Another small problem !
I entered recovery mode, i wiped cache and tried to install cm10, but it said installation aborted.
So i installed X Fusion directly and rebooted my phone.
But now it lights up, give the purple light which turns off after some time and remains like this.
what to do ?
