2.Enable USB Debugging on device
3.Connect your device using usb data cable

CWM install Download UPDATED*
Update : support Xperia Arc / Neo
Updated to CWM-5.0.2.7-nAa-r2

ADB Driver Download UPDATED

ADB Driver tested on :
- Xperia Arc
- Xperia Neo
- Live With Walkman
- Xperia Mini Pro

The Above one is the Easier Method and below is the old copying method using Root Explorer :


Installation *Requires Root
Download CWM From here and extract its contents.

Using Root explorer: copy ALL the contents of the system folder (system/bin and system/xbin) to /system (system/bin and system/xbin respectively), then give 755 permissions to those files, especially to /system/bin/chargemon, or you'll get bootloop. Double check everything before rebooting.







Usage

When booting your phone and when the 'Sony Ericsson' logo appear, press and release continuously the volume down button.
Once you are in the CWM recovery, use the volume keys to navigate upwards / downwards, the 'home' key to select, the 'back' key to go back.


Notes to everyone:

Do NOT use this recovery if you are not in Stock 2.3 firmware.

Ok, trying it. I'm working on the installation, in a spanish forum, of custom roms based on stock kernel in phones with lock bootloader via convert them to recovery files and it's a shame that i need to reinstall recovery every time. Thanks.

IT WORKED Its all good looking with cyan color

for those who r are unable to enter recovery , try this

1. switch off your phone
2. press the power button & quickly start pressing the VOLUME DOWN button untill RECOVERY appears
( i started pressing volume button way before i saw SONY ERICSSON logo )

BUTTON BEHAVIOR ON NEO V

back button : back
home button : select option
menu button : scroll down
volume up/down : scroll up/down

Ok not to shatter the fun but , installing custom Roms (cm7 , mini) will need unlocked bootloader ,so if bootloader is locked no custom Roms

But we can backup/ restore stock Roms , install flashable theme tweaks
