Auto Installer for Sony Xperia Line Helps Get ClockworkMod Recovery to Users Easier

Installing a recovery on a phone has the potential to be challenging. On some devices, it’s as easy as flashing a kernel. On others, it’s knowing how to use ADB in your command prompt (or terminal) to push the recovery to the correct partition and hope you didn’t just turn your beautiful device into a very expensive paperweight.

In either case, XDA Senior Member pvyParts and friends have posted an application that will install a recovery straight from the app itself. No need for computers, debug mode or any of the other potential problems some people may have with other methods. Says pvyParts:

This App will work with the 2011 Xperia porfolio. it will install CWM into the system partition so you can use recovery even with a locked bootloader!
The Recovery has been ported by nobodyAtall @xda for the Xperia phones!
All Credits to him!

all i did was bundle it into a nice easy installer. ( i also made some changes to the chargemon file to turn the LED on to signal when to pres your keys )

The development of this invaluable tool is ongoing, so if you give it a shot and experience some problems, make sure to report it so it can be fixed. The app has been posted in the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc forums, but pvyParts says it’s compatible with the 2011 Xperia line up, so there may be hope for those carrying something other than the Arc.

For additional details, change logs, a full compatibility list, screen shots and discussion in the original thread found here. As always, make sure you do a full back up of your device if you can, just in case.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild.
