After root and install a recovery flash, my phone won't work

After root and install a recovery flash, my phone won't work

I rooted my phone using kingroot apk. Since the kingroot apk did't install a recovery flash boot, i install the TWRP recovery using XZDualRecovery for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. It worked. I can finally open the TWRP recovery flash boot. I installed an Xposed zip file using the recovery boot. After the installation finished, i try to reboot my phone (using an 'system' option on the recovery boot) but then, the problem started to happen. My phone remains on the very very first state "SONY XPERIA" thing. And it started to vibrate twice with the light turned green (and when i press the volume down key it turned purple and entered the recovery flash boot window). But, if i didn't press the volume down button, it will go to the next state "Powered by android". And a few seconds later, it rebooted to the first state. And the same condition keeps recur. I have tried to wipe data and did a factory reset (from the TWRP recovery boot ofc). Then i press a system reboot, but then an option appeared "Do you want to install SuperSU?" I clicked yes. And it began to reboot. And it stucked on the first state "SONY XPERIA". It didn't vibrate anymore, and the light didn't turn on anymore. But, the phone also did't go to the second state. I tried to use the "emergency" power off button. Then i turned the phone again. But it remained on the same occurrence.

Unable to boot into recovery mode

I'm using Xperia Z1 d5503 Lollipop 5.1.1. I've tried to manually boot my phone, but it didn't work. I've also tried to use a flasing app (i forgot the app name), and it said the phone doesn't have recovery partition. Is there any way to install recovery partition or something?

Because, when i tried to install CyanogenMod, it always failed (https://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_amami)
