Enter recovery mode using the following steps:
Turn your device off.
At the same time, press the Power button and Volume down until your device vibrates.
Quickly release the Power button, but keep pressing Volume down.
When you see the screen shown in the image below TWRP, release Volume down. You have now successfully entered recovery mode.

It won´t work for me.
I have the latest TA update + fastboot flash recovery recovery.img.

The following steps to boot into recovery doesn´t work, the screen stays black and nothing is happening.

Now recovery mode is enabled and you can flash a custom recovery image to your device. After doing so, you can enter recovery mode using the following steps:

-Turn your device off.
-At the same time, press the Power button and Volume down until your device vibrates.
-Quickly release the Power button, but keep pressing Volume down.
-When you see the screen shown in the image below, release Volume down. You have now successfully entered recovery mode.

Xperia Z Ultra C6833 with release CM 11 M12.

Any ideas?



EDIT:
After installing the latest Resurrection Remix rom i can boot directly into TWRP (with restart menu)... i don´t know why it works but i´m happy.

Tried Rashr, tried fastboot flash FOTAKernel recovery.img and still doesnt work (CWM boots)
Sent using C6833 - AICP/GreatDevs

For the record, while installing 2.8.5 I first tried on-device methods: dd and rashr, but always ended up on cm recovery. fastboot flash fotakernel did not work as well. What did work for me was fastboot flash recovery. YMMV.

Something with the "new" bootloader and twrp doesn't seem right.
TWRP 2.8.5.0 falshed via fastboot flash recovery works fine.
TWRP 2.8.7.0 (this version) doesn't on some Kernels/ROMS
However it works fine with Saatvik's BlackSheep-Kernel

Also i cant go to recovery the method sony described, despite having flashed the "TA-Update"
Anybody got it?

I wonder why that is...

    Tried this recovery with GreatDevs kernel (flashed over AICP kernel) and it still boots to CWM not TWRP.

    I had a similar issue when installing twrp 2.8.5. The only method that worked for me was fastboot. However I successfully upgraded to 2.8.7 using rashr.
