Hey guys spent about 8 hours today attempting to root, unlock bootloader, install custom recovery (TWRP), install custom ROM (PAC ROM) and custom kernel (MEOW).

I got as far as installing TWRP but for whatever reason the OS got deleted while flashing it. So now I have no OS and its stuck in bootloop. All I can access is TWRP. How do I get it out of bootloop and reinstall the original Android 4.3 OS with Sony's bloatware? After I reinstall the original OS/ROM. I'll attempt to install PAC ROM and Meow and g-apps

How do I reinstall the original OS/ROM and get it out of bootloop?
How do I install PAC, MEOW and G-APPS?

Please provide links or instructions thank you.
Somebody please help me!

Same problem
Bump; same problem
Will post if I solve it

EDIT:
OK, to solve I simply copied the Cyanogenmod install .zip to my microSD card, mounted that while in TWRP, then installed it.
I then downloaded the mini Gapps package, installed that, and all was right as rain.
All of this meant that I didn't have to re-root, which was a pain for me on a mac, and I didn't have to go through too lengthy a process either.

Thanks for the info androidfreak70, but I didn't need it this time.

Do this:

Flash the stock 4.4.4 via flashtool

Root and install dual recovery

Boot to TWRP

Go to wipe >> advanced wipe and select dalvik cache and cache and system and data

Install the ROM and GAPPS like any zip

Reboot system

Boot to CWM (PAC man has CWM not TWRP)

Wipe dalvik and cache

Install the Meow kernel

Done
