I have a Xperia z2 6503 running the this rom:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...k-pie-t2839305

Previously i had a combination of this rom
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2755390
and this recovery
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2785598

Everything was working fine, but i wanted to switch so i flashed the rom i mentioned first through the recovery.

-When i tried to boot back to the recovery from android, i only get a black screen with an orange light.

-When i boot up the phone and press volume + or - at the pink light, i get a black screen with an orange light

-When i boot up the phone and wait for the green light, then hold volume + for 3 sec i get a black screen with the sony logo. And every touch nomatter where on the screen gives me a haptic feedback.

I have tried flashing multiple recoveries with and without a kernel, but i get the above results no matter what.
Since i havent posted enough i cant ask in the apropriate thread for the rom so im asking here.

Does anyone know a solution for this?
Does anyone know what firmware the Rom is based on?
Does anyone know what recovery/kernel is compatible with this rom?

Any help is greatly appriciated

The only app i have tried using is the NDR Utils app.
It porduced the same results as trying to reboot to recovery from the power menu.
One more thing i forgot to mention.

I got into the thing were there is a sony logo and haptic feedback and just spammed the screen all over.
When i rebooted to android there was a screenshot of a recovery in a folder called screen_shots.
In the screenshot everything looked normal, and you could see that it had reacted to me spamming the screen:

Is this worth a shot?
How to remove:


Delete the following files:
/system/bin/recovery.twrp.cpio.lzma (or .tar)
/system/bin/recovery.cwm.cpio.lzma (or .tar)
/system/bin/recovery.philz.cpio.lzma
/system/bin/charger
/system/bin/dualrecovery.sh
/system/bin/mr

Rename /system/bin/mr.stock to /system/bin/mr to restore stock functionality, then inside /system/bin/ rename chargemon.stock to chargemon check its permissions (should be 755 or otherwise visible as -rwxr-x-r-x). Done!

EDIT:
So i deleted the above files and flashed a new kernel with recovery, but it doesent seem to have changed anything.
