( If I have posted this incorrectly, I appologise.
It's not very clear on the best place to put this, since I can't post on the actual guide thread yet )

I've just finished following the guide (

It has definately flashed the recovery, which is great.
However I cannot boot the recovery using any kind of key combination.
The only way I can access it is by booting into the current stock ROM, and using the CWM ROM Manager.

My issue is that if I want to flash a different ROM (AOKP when I figure this out), if the ROM fails and won't boot, I can't get back into recovery to fix the issue or re-flash a different ROM.

I don't want to end up with a bricked device.

I've done a lot of reading and can't find any potential solutions...

I'm more used to flashing Samsung devices

Thanks for any assists!

I suggest you to go here and send your problem here, because you cannot post to Development threads:
Sony Xperia Tablet Z > Xperia Tablet Z Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting
I'm sure someone will find a solution to your problem

just a little help: Have you tried to re-flash recovery,
Or go to read this page => ?
It says that only manual boot to recovery from system works for SGP311 devices. / / Most probably because event definations are different for keycheck
Thanks to my colleague @Abhinav2 for this link

For remember, At XDA-Assist we are here to help you find your way throughout the forum not to troubleshoot issues.

Thumbs up Thanks :)
Thanks for the response

I haven't tried a re-flash as yet.
It looks like a common issue so I was wondering if there might be an updated kernel I could flash...

The link you gave looks like it's shortened (with ....) so it doesn't work

I'll try posting again in the thread you suggested.
