I recently got xperia P and wanted to flash Abhinav2's Carbon ROM. Here is what I did step wise:
  • Unlocked the device from Developer World without any errors from Fastboot.
  • Downloaded and saved the zips to my SDCARD
  • Backed up my data (Text Messages, Call Logs using Super Backup)
  • Rebooted to bootloader with blue LED on and stable.
  • Flashed the Carbon Rom's boot image with
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  • Fastboot returned no errors and then I powered on my device.
  • While the bootsplash showed up, I was pressing all side buttons simultaneously.

The problem is that all I can see is a blank screen and nothing else after the bootsplash ends. The device does not enter recovery. I tried several other boot images like one from @percy_g2's CM. Everything fails. Even tried unlocking again which shows status aborted
device already unlocked
. Only Kernel that works is @Abhinav2's Dual recovery Kernel.

I'd like to know a way out of it because Carbon ROM is as slow as snail on AJ's Dual recovery Kernel.

The fact that only you have this problem in the entire forum means there's something wrong with you or your device.

Flash aj kernel, use its recovery to flash carbon rom. Boot it up. Then flash the kernel included in the rom zip.

Problem solved.
