Hi evreyone !

I spent hours trying and reading posts everywhere I could without any success.

I'm trying to follow this rooting guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2634196 (Root and Dual Recovery for Locked Bootloader) and I'm stuck in a bootloop at step 10.

I'm using the last Z1C-lockeddualrecovery2.7.117-BETA.installer.zip and I noticed an error during recovery installation (after DEVICE WILL NOW REBOOT!):

Code:
##########################################################
#
# Installing XZDR version 2.7.117 BETA
#
#####

Temporarily disabling the RIC service, remount rootfs and /system writable to allow installation.
Copy recovery files to system.
Copy mr wrapper script to system.
Copy chargemon script to system.
Copy dualrecovery.sh to system.
Copy rickiller.sh to system.
Installing NDRUtils to system.
Copy busybox to system.
Trying to find and update the gpio-keys event node.
Found and will be using /dev/input/event4!
Trying to find and update the power key event node.
Found and will be monitoring /dev/input/event3!
Speeding up backups.
Make sure firstboot goes to recovery.

=============================================
DEVICE WILL NOW REBOOT!
=============================================

Error type 2
android.util.AndroidException: Can't connect to activity manager; is the system running?
        at com.android.commands.am.Am.run(Am.java:101)
        at com.android.commands.am.Am.main(Am.java:82)
        at com.android.internal.os.RuntimeInit.nativeFinishInit(Native Method)
        at com.android.internal.os.RuntimeInit.main(RuntimeInit.java:235)
        at dalvik.system.NativeStart.main(Native Method)
=============================================

REMEMBER THIS:

XZDualRecovery does NOT install any superuser app!!

You can use one of the recoveries to root your device.

=============================================
Waiting for your device to reconnect.
After entering CWM for the first time, reboot to system to complete this installer if you want it to clean up after itself.

=============================================
Installation finished. Enjoy the recoveries!
=============================================
(Note that I'm using Linux... I tried to run the bash script both as a user or as root)

If I continue the rooting process by flashing D5503_14.2.A.1.114_Generic UK.ftf (step 9), I'm stuck at step 10 as I can't boot any recovery. The phone is stuck in a bootloop, and after the green light pressing vol up (ou down) won't do anything...

I tried the whole process (from the begining: docomo) several time and end up everytime with the same result: an error at the end of the recovery installation and a bootloop at step 10 that prevent me from entering any recovery...

I'm out of ideas ! What can I do to manage the installation of the recovery ?

Since I don't have access to any recovery, I don't understand how I can follow this guide (step 5: Go to recovery menu[...]).

What did you meant ?

Read the requirements and it links to how to root, and if you can't or won't unlock your bootloader then you're going to have to jump through hoops.

Of course I red the requirements. The root method described is the same (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2642081) than the one I followed (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2634196). And so the result is going to be the same: being stuck in a bootloop after flashing the recovery form the computer (flashing witch returns an error that I quoted above).

I need help to "recover" the recovery, I mean to be able to properly flash the dual recovery on my phone (whether I wish to unlock the bootloader or not is not the point for now, since I need to root with the locked bootloader in the first place).

It's obvious that there is an error while installing dualrecovery. However I don't know what could cause that error. I advise you to try install it on a fresh ubuntu / Windows client.

Edit: You are executing the install.sh script right? Because at first you select option 3, which is missing in your output. It looks like you are simply executing installrecovery.sh which is of course wrong.

I don't know where the error came from, but I tried several times (about 10) and it end up the same way ! I will try on another machine (Linux too).

Yes I'm using install.sh, I just pasted the relevat part of the output, but here I paste all of it:
