Code:
adb shell
su
cd /data/local/tmp/boot/
kernel_make zImage initrd.gz cmdline boot.img
then copy the boot.img to your desktop and flash it.
ok.. stupid question mayde.. i get the "cmdline out of range" error and after executing run_me I type the commands and finally I get tha message "target file boot.img is patched succesfully, enjoy new kernel" but where is this boot.img stored so I can grab it and flash it? I am searching my androd folders and can not locate it.. probably I have not understand it or what..?

EDIT: ok. the problem was that folders were not mounted as writable and were not visible.
anyway. thank you!

not even with volume down works.
here is what I do. after extracting boot.img, I flash it via flashtool and fastboot mode and it gives me the "OK' sign. I power on device and on SONY logo I keep pressing volume down, enters for a second in recovery and restarts again to boot normally cause it can not enter recovery.
I think I am gonna give it up..

After sony logo, led bar will light up with red, yellow, green light. Then it'll vibrate and pressing volume button will trigger recovery. If not, then you have done something wrong. Follow instruction properly, use command line not flashtool. Also this is mainly for kitkat roms, I don't know if it'll work properly on previous android versions.
