@JustArchi I flashed the latest experimental this morning. Tried fully clean install thrice (formatted /boot, /data, /system, /dalvik-cache and /cache before flashing), but each time ArchiKernel installation would give an error, which meant wifi not working when booted up and max freq would also be stock (972 Mhz). Had to resort to flashing the stock kernel. ATM it's not much different from normal CM12.1 in terms of performance because we all know your kernel is the backbone of your ROM. I am using a C2004 on a C1904 firmware. Any help on what could be the reason for the kernel installation error??

EDIT: Attached Kernel error log

This should not happen, update recovery prior to installing AD.

Tried doing that thrice too, as even i thought recovery could be an issue. Selected the "Update Recovery" option in your ROM's AROMA installer. It would display a successful result and ask to reboot, but my recovery won't update too. It would still be CWM 6.0.something, when your ROM has TWRP bundled in it. Am i really doing something wrong, because AFAIK the AROMA installer gives me no room to do a mistake unknowingly. Do i flash TWRP independently using some other method? Which version of TWRP comes bundled with your ROM?

Then no doubt it's not AD problem if you can't even update recovery.

Extract boot.img from AD zip and flash on kernel block using fastboot manually.

And of course you need unlocked bootloader.

No success. According to flashtool I have an unlocked bootloader. I flash the kernel img, shows OKAY on the flashtool log, then when I click to reboot into system, the system goes into offline charging mode dunno why. I disconnect the cable, and poof, no new kernel, no new recovery. Everything is the same old. Tried even after formatting /boot partition in CWM. Also tried directly disconnecting the cable after flashing the kernel in fastboot mode without instructing to reboot the system. Really, there's something very peculiar. I have a sneaky feeling it could be because I have the dual sim c2004 working on a c1904 single sim firmware. This might be giving a software-hardware compatibility issue, since the kernel comes between the software and hardware. But of course, I am just speculating, since I do not have any knowledge about the nitty-gritties of kernel compatibilities etc

If you're not able to change the kernel, then you're definitely not able to properly flash/use AD.

I can only suggest flashing pure Sony stock image, then starting all over again.

But then I have a dual sim c2004, which was running on a c1904 firmware backup and c1904 modem files provided by Bonoboo in this thread. Now I'm not sure what to do, whether I just use this backup again since its single sim, or download the actual dual sim ftf file and flash that using flashtool and lose out on lollipop since it doesn't support dual sim. Can I flash single sim ftf on dual sim xperia m? Or will that brick my phone?
