CWM recovery is included in kernel [in Xperia devices], so if you want a cwm, just flash a custom kernel (through flashtool).
consider that the kernel must be compatible with your ROM

If I can remember well there was a script written in shell to install CWM from Linux, just open the terminal and change to the directory where CWM files are and type:
Code:
sudo su
source install.sh
BTW, wrong section

It's simply. You must flash boot.img or kernel.elf.

First install fastboot (on Ubuntu 13.10)

sudo apt-get install android-tools-fastboot.

Second move boot.img or kernel.elf in home.

Open terminal:

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img (or kernel.elf).

It's the best way
