wt19i does not have a built in recovery like the samsung phones.
you have to install it.
if you have root already, then proceed to this thread and follow instructions.

browse the last few pages of that thread, i believe somebody has got it working.

Unless you're talking about CWM recovery (keep pressing repeatedly volume down when you see Sony logo, until you enter CWM), there's also a so called 'safe mode', check this thread.

I'm looking for recovery lor my sony wt19i with official 4.0.4(4.1.B.0.587) android.
Phone is already rooted, I got Rom Manager, and I would like to install CM9.1

The only recovery I found was for 2.3 android only. Ao I did not try to install it.
Can you provide me a link or guide me what should I do?

You can't install cyanogenmod before you have unlocked your bootloader. You can unlock by official sony method for developers (look in my signature for a guide) or by testpoint method. Otherwise you can't install a rom for unlocked bootloader because you aren't able to flash a kernel boot.img.

When your bootloader is unlocked, in most custom kernels cwm is integrated

Don't try to flash a rom for unlocked bootloader on a locked bootloader, otherwise your device will brick and you will have to flash the original firmware with flashtool!

Ah btw to install cwm on ics you must have rooted ics (you can't root ics like gingerbread firmware .42, you will have to do it like this) and then you can download the x-parts app from playstore which can automaticly install cwm

I rooted device and have X-Parts.
Installed Recovery 5.5.0.4 by pvyParts.

I am able to restart in recovery mode.

Do I understand it right?
Even if I have recovery installed I won't be able to install CM or other ROM with locked bootloader?

You can install roms especially made for locked bootloader, like ics based "real ics lite" or "MiniCMSandwich". There are some MIUI rom's around here, too, but stock rom is the smoothest
