Formerly 'Xperia CWM Auto-Installer'
READ THIS BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER!!!
So We've been Busy yet again
And we are proud to re-release This Tool.
All New UI that uses the ActionBarSherlock framework to give full Holo theme + Action Bar to devices pre ICS
To support more phones i have had to change the way the app works.
(OLD VERSIONS AVAILABLE IN ATTACHMENTS)
What it does now
1 - Check your phone model and compare it to a list of supported devices.
2 - If you phone is supported you can pick any of the supported CWM versions for you phone.
3 - When you click install it will[B] download the CWM "recovery.tar" to your SD-card .
4 - Build you a "chargemon" file to match you phone.
5 - Take the charger + sh file from within the app.
6 - It then backs all the previous files up to the SD-Card and moves all the files to system as needed.
7 - if there are no problems then it is done and CWM is installed(into system)
With the new app i am also able to do many new things that were not possible in it's last incarnation
(in no particular order)
1-Click De-Bloating of Stock Firmware
1-Click Enable of Init.d support for locked Bootloaders / Stock Kernels
Few more in the works too
Many more phones
My current plan is to support most Xperia devices
My current plan is to add these soon
X10, X8, Xperia S, U, P, Sola
also if there is no compatibility issues the app does not need to be updated to add phones / recoveries. I can do it all server side.
This App will work with the Sony Xperia porfolio. it will install CWM into the system partition so you can use recovery even with a locked bootloader!
Launch the Application,
Swipe Between Tabs or Pick Tabs
Let it detect your phones setup
Press Install and CWM will be installed into your system.
To access recovery simply, reboot phone and press any key on boot at the Sony Ericsson logo, when the notification LED turns Blue. or use the "reboot to recovery" button from within the app.
Currently there are 2 recoveries that are able to be installed
126.96.36.199 for GB Roms (nobodyAtall) [link]
188.8.131.52 Recovery for ICS Based ROMS (pvyParts)
-USB Storage Mount works
-System wont be corrupted (Thanks nAa for the pointers + puppet13th for testing)
(Locked Boot Loader, if you are unlocked you really don't need this)
How to install!
grab it here
x-Parts on the Market!
or from the attachments in this thread!
if you experience issues with the app please post them here
Modify/Delete USB and SD-Card Storage Contents
Required to store files on SD-Card prior to installing to system
Prevent Phone from Sleeping
Required to Wakelock the phone whilst installing to ensure no issues
Full Network Access
This allows x-Parts to get the current supported phones list and to download the "recovery.tar"
View network State
Allows x-Parts to check for a connection before connecting so it does not crash
If phone is unsupported app crashes (My bad i forgot to add the unsupported screen)
sometimes crash with no internet connection (Looking into it)
Few Spelling mistakes (Again sorry will get someone who is betterer at englishing than me to fix it)
