This is my first time using XDA. I can't post this in development threads, so I'm putting it here.
I am rooted, bootloaded locked, and have been using Existenz. When I updated to Existenz 4.0, (cleared cache and dalvic cache) I got a bootloop. It says SONY then that fades away. If I charge it, the bottom light glows red. If I connect to computer in flashmode (volume down) the bottom glows green. I have TWRP and CWM but don't know how to boot into them, as the thing my xperia sp normally does (bottom cycles through three colors, during which you hit a button to boot into recovery) isn't happening. I need urgent help. Thanks in advance

Thanks, but what would I flash from flashtool (could you link me to a file??). I really have no idea how to get into a recovery. I can't even charge the phone without the bottom glowing green for a bit, then it getting stuck back into the bootloop.

try this kernel recovery i have attached... its doomkernel with advanced recovery
follow these steps :
open flashtool
connect your device in fastboot mode (volume up while connecting through usb)
it will show that your device is connected in fastboot mode
click the flash button
select fastboot
than click on flash kernel to flash
specify the path for the file
click ok and your recovery will be installed..

(extract the file first)
all the best bro..!!!

Do not flash this kernel if you are bootloader locked as you said you were.

Just download a full 205 FTF and start from scratch with towelroot and recovery from dev section. Then reflash existenz.

Thanks, do I flash the .205 ftf through flashtool? Do I clear data or cache or dalvic or what? Sorry but I need the specifics . I also thought towelroot only worked for kitkat, are you sure it works for xperia sp .205?

Yes flash through flashtool, just make sure the TA partition isnt selected and then flash using default settings.
