Go through it once again

I have added the pure kernel for Xperia Pro as well. So now users won't face problems in flashing the kernel only from the rom

Re: Rooting Xperia Pro with Android 4.0.4

Since 4.0.3 was not released for xeria pro that;s the reason there is no other kernel

You have to flash the kernel that states "all other users"
