    First Thing First: How To Install Custom Kernel
    1) You need to UNLOCK BOOTLOADER using one of these method. I'm NOT responsible of what you've decide. Please follow instruction carefully.
    -> S1tool
    -> Sony Mobile - Unlock Bootloader
    2) Get this awesome tool called Flashtool and install. Dont forget to install usb drivers from "Drivers" folder too.
    3) I assume you have download one of my kernel. Get into Fastboot mode. How? Do i have to repeat how? Press "Volume Up" while connecting your USB cable. you'll see Blue led.
    4) Click "Flash" button on Flashtool, then select Fastboot Mode.
    5) Choose "Select Kernel to Flash" and find your saved kernel. I'm not gonna find it for you.
    6) Once completed, reboot device into system

    Those version below was a final version xKernel for Xperia Ray. I might on a new
    device next week due someone already booked my ray. Ive planned to give the
    last version using 4.1.B.0.587 but unfortunately source published by Sony was
    corrupted. Sorry guys, i cant afford to keep my ray. This is it.
    Thank you for using my kernel.
