Default [RECOVERY] ClockworkMod Recovery for Xperia X8 - 4.0.1.5 [UPDATE - 24/9/2011]

The Clockworkmod recovery is working on our X8 now
* I am not responsible for any brick or damage to your phone, so be cautious!
The package script for CWM recovery is different from xRecovery, don't try to flash xRecovery script with CWM recovery, errors might occur
If you want to create update.zip for CWM recovery, please go to here.
Use the attached update-binary which is modified and tested to work correctly with this recovery.










Features


- reboot system now
- apply update from sdcard
- wipe data / factory reset
- wipe cache partition
- install zip from sdcard
- backup and restore

------ backup (also backs up ext partition and installed apps to sdcard) (please make sure you have enough space on the sd card!)
------ restore (also restores ext partition and installed apps to sdcard)
------ Advanced restore
- mounts and storage
------ mount / unmount /cache
------ mount / unmount /data
------ mount / unmount /sdcard
------ mount / unmount /system
------ mount / unmount /sd-ext
------ mount / unmount /cache
------ format /cache
------ format /data
------ format /sdcard
------ format /system
------ format /sd-ext
------ mount USB storage

- advanced
------ reboot recovery
------ wipe Dalvik Cache
------ wipe Battery Stats
------ report Error
------ key Test
------ show log

- power off


How to use?
The method booting into it is same as booting to the xRecovery, just click the 'back' button continuously when see the white 'Sony Ericsson'


Installation requirements
1) Rooted
2) Busybox installed from the market


Installation
- If you are having xRecovery, flash "Amend" package
- If you are having previous version of ClockWorkMod Recovery, flash "Edify" package

If is possible you can copy part of chargemon script to other chargemon of custom Rom and overwrite xrecovery script. So your custom zips will work with custom rom.

Xperia X8 (slow phone but good) > Xperia Live with Walkman (fastest but bad screen) > Xperia U (smooth as butter) > Xiaomi MI2S (best so far)

Sony Smartwatch 2 (not so useful)

So I take it CWM still doesn't work with binary updates...
| White X8 | FroyoBread ROM | OC 768 MHz | CRT animation & other features |
| alfsamsung's theme | GO Launcher Ex | Gre home theme | Droid Sans Font |
| GO SMS pro | GO weather widget |
| doixanh FTW! |

CWM doesn't support old update-scripts, I don't know which ones (amend or edify) - you have to convert them.
