Here's an application to install and uninstall TWRP 126.96.36.199 recovery on locked bootloaders Xperia Z. It's stable on my Xperia Z, but i highly suspect some partition (system) problems with Xperia ZL phones.
This application will install TWRP recovery ramdisk to system as "recovery.tar", but you can provide your own recovery (ramdisk) by placing it to "/sdcard/XZRecovery.tar". This way this application could be compatible with other recovery or devices.
TWRP recovery ported to Xperia Z by krabappel2548 !
If you don't know which file to use, download XZRecovery-1.0.apk, install it and run it.
The recovery will get lost each time you flash a rom or wipe system partition.
Removed SD Card, Reboot phone to recovery, tap install, freeze
Removed SD Card, Turn off phone, Recovery, tap install, freeze
Remove SD Card, Reboot Recovery, Insert SD card, tap install, freeze
I have tried all these multiple times hoping it only works some times but it never does. Going to install CWM tonight and see if it works.
I have identified the problem with TWRP freezing when pressing on install and it has something to do with the cache partition.
Once you wipe it, TWRP will get this issue, maybe not straight away but a few times and the problem will occur. The only way to get it working again is to reinstall stock firmware (without excluding anything, full wipe with stock firmware).
Next time you flash something, don't touch cache since it may screw up TWRP again. If you need to wipe the cache and dalvik, just choose dalvik cache
