[Q] Custom Rom Installation

Ok I have a Sony Live With Walkman.I have unlocked the bootloader,rooted my phone and installed and have tried many custom roms on my phone.Every thing works fine but its such a long proceess for me to flash a rom.Every custom rom comes with its own boot.img file i.e. every rom has its own and different kernel.If I flash different kernel and install a different rom it results into a bootloop.It means if I use rom manger to flash a rom it results into bootloop as the kernel installed in it is of current running rom.I want to have a permanent kernel and I cant install kernels using rom manager as its not available for my phone .Steps I use to flash a rom
First I copy the gapps and custom rom zip folder onto sd card
Extract boot.img file from the custom rom on my pc
Open Flashtool
Open recovery my phone and wipe and format data,wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache.
Shut the phone
Connect my phone in fastboot mode by pressin volume buttons
Flastool displays that my device is sucessfully connected in fastboot mode
Click thunder sign in flashtool
Select fastboot mode
Select kernel to flash
Select the boot.img file that I previously extracted from the custom rom file
The kernel is flashed
Then i go into recovery
Again Wipe and format data,Wipe Cache,Wipe Dalvik Cache,.
Install Zip from sd card
Install custom rom zip file and gapps zip file
Installation is done.Then I reboot the phone
