  1. hello Ritesh Bro !!
    after flashing this kernel on my Xperia L i get automatically entered to my recovery whenever i try to start my phone …. the thunderzap logo appears then it takes me to recovery 🙁 what to do ??
    i flashed the kernel using flashtool from pc… pls help

    • Obviously it will go there cause flashing kernel completely wipes your stock operating system. So you’ll boot up into recovery anyway. All you can do now is downloading a custom kernel and flash it through recovery or flash stock ftf firmware using flashtool.
