Default [RECOVERY][14/11/11] 5.0.2.7-nAa-r2 ClockworkMod for Stock Xperia Mini/Pro/Active/Arc

This is ClockworkMod Recovery (v.5.0.2.7) ported to work on Xperia mini (ST15 and S51SE versions) / Xperia mini pro / Xperia Active / Xperia Arc

Introduction
This CWM recovery is for people who don't want to unlock their bootloaders risking their DRM / warranty. It is not 'true' recovery per se, since it installs in /system, but all the CWM functions should work.

Features
  • ADB root shell
  • reboot system now
  • apply update from sdcard
  • wipe data / factory reset
  • wipe cache partition
  • install zip from sdcard
  • backup and restore
    • backup
    • restore
    • 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
    • partition SD Card
      • Ext Size
      • Swap Size (Set this to 0)
      • Rest Size is for vfat
    • fix permissions
  • power off


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.



Requirements
  • Stock 2.3 ROM
  • Root



Installation
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.



Notes to everyone

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

Please someone explain this line:
then give 755 permissions to those files, especially to /system/bin/chargemon
Files means those two folders?
And then the chargemon we need to give it permission again even if i o'redy give the permission to the /bin?
Please help me,i want this to work as it meant to be.
Thanks for replyin

755 should be enough for all files.

For charger you might need to:
chmod u+s /system/bin/charger

for offline charging. It hasn't been tested though.

Give 755 permission to all content of xbin and bin?

Why would you want to touch files other than the one's you are installing?

Yes, it's like installing the old xrecovery if that makes you feel comfortable
