Can you enter the recovery of the stock kernel you flash?
Nope. Every stock kernel and custom kernel i've flashed doesn't let me enter the recovery (except, of course, the CM ones). It just shows me Sony/Sony Ericsson logo and a brick pic after that. Tried several buttons (kind of in despair), none of them let me enter the recovery. No tapping, no holding, nothing. Just the brick picture.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
