Give this a try,I use it because it's hard to press the power and volume buttons on my phone at the same time.Try it.
Have you tried TWRP Recovery here.
TeamWin Projects - TWRP 2.7 - Sony Xperia Z | TeamWin
And use a Terminal Emulator here.
Give this a try.
Don't try this, that recovery is for the Xperia Z, not the Z1.
The simplest way to install a recovery is to root using this: Easy Root Tool for various Xperia devices - XDA Forum (although if you are rooted, you can obviously skip this step)
Once rooted, install NUTs dual recovery here: [DEVDB][TWRP][PhilZ Touch][CWM] XZDualRecovery 2.7.1XX RC - XDA Forum
You can then use his NDR Utils app here to boot in to recovery: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.camber.ndrutils
How did you unlock the bootloader, via the official Sony Dev site or using Flashtool? (this: Flashtool | Xperia device flashing)
From the recovery link, head to NUTs download page here: -=- [NUT]'s XDA download page -=-
The file you want is this one: Z1-lockeddualrecovery2.7.154-BETA.installer.zip (23.99MB)
It's an exe/batch file ran from your PC which will install the recovery for you.
I would advise against using ROM Manager for anything tbh.
The 2nd "guide" you linked to is also full of nonsense, just ignore it.
I've linked to the recovery you need to use in your other thread.
Awesome, happy to have helped.
