There isn't a recovery mode on Xperia, nor will Xperia Companion recognise your device after bootloader unlock, as was pointed out earlier in thread.

I had followed the official instructions by Sony to unlock my Xperia E (c1504) bootloader and it was successfully done
but when i booted it , it was stuck in boot loop [ i.e Sony logo >> Xperia logo >> animation (6-9 sec)>> screen off >> ......repeat] I also tried of after removing the battery ,but again stuck in boot-loop .
and the flash tool and Xperia Companion is not detecting my device nor in fast boot nor in reboot.
My Sony Xperia E (c1504) is not in the supported devices list for flash tool at https://developer.sonymobile.com/open-devices/flash-tool/supported_phones/
If there is a recovery mode please let me know how to get there.
Also posted this at developer world open devices.
Please help !!

I don't know why, but the Companion Software works well for my devices with unlocked bootloader. I have to say i didn't used it when i had boot loop problems. Last week after flashing a selfbuilded ROM which had some issues, the Display was non responsive. Flashing a working image didn't solve the Problem. So i had fixed that problem with Xperia Companion. Did you try both, connecting in fastboot mode and flashmode? If there is no native recovery mode, you can flash a twrp image (i use it on both phones).

I'm sorry, i have to correct myself. I just bootet my Windows to test it. I fixed my problem with the Flashtool not with the Xperia Companion Software. The Companion Software doesn't recognize my devices. I confused this two programms.

Power off your Device
Press and hold VolDown, connect the USB Cable, wait till LED changes color.

Again, XC WON"T work with an unlocked bootloader, if you unloocked the bootloader BUT you re-locked the bootloader then you can use XC. Also, there is NO recovery.
