Hey guys whats happening I came across this in my daily rummaging and will probably help out alot of people here with locked bootloaders. I take no creds for any of this exciting work ALL creds go these guys: nobodyAtall, puppet13th, draco_ag for his effordless testing and debugging
koushd for writing the piece of software the first place
Cyanogen for the obvious reasons...


ClockWorkMod Recovery 5.0.2.6 Easy installation for

Xperia Mini/MiniPro/Active/Live With Walkman

1.Run install-cwm?.cmd
install-cwm1.cmd for Xperia Arc / Neo / PLAY
install-cwm2.cmd for Xperia Mini / MiniPro / Active / Live With Walkman
2.Enable USB Debugging on device
3.Connect your device using usb data cable
4.Follow on screen instruction


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.


Disclaimer:
I can't be held responsible if this Mod bricks your device or makes it explode in your hands! Use it at your own risk!

All you need to do is download attchment extract somwhere on your computer and start it up it will do everything automatically! Have fun guys hope this helps

Recovery allows back up and custom roms. However with locked bootloader you can't flash a kernal. I may try it out.

But isn't the recovery partition supposed to be built into the kernel itself?

Also works here doing a backup now although it will be more complicated this opens doors for locked xperia devices.
