Is it possible or easy to create a system bootable recovery only?

As you managed to root the phone without flashing a custom kernel, it would be very useful for those who want recovery in a rooted phone with latest stock kernel.

There is a version of CWM for locked bootloaders already.
Not really doing anything Android-related right now. OnePlus plz?

Exclamation Stuck at CWM

I installed this CWM and now I'm stuck at it. I didn't know that I have to put the ROM to the SD BEFORE I flash this CWM. So I cannot boot my Xperia to Android, only to CWM. And my Windows 7 wont recognize this phone anymore (it shows MTP USB device but it is unable to install the drivers).

What to do?

Mount storage in cwm and you might copy a flashable zip rom to the sd and flash it.

Default Recovery X tool or Binary recovery

Hi guys

I want to flash Erachter ROM v5 , but in the instruction say to install binary recovery.

I have already installed CMW using Recovery X tool by LEDdelete.

Do i need to install binary recovery to flash Erachter ROM or use the existing CMW recovery to flash the rom.

Need help here.

Thanks

Is it possible to get a CWM flashable version of this recovery, for those of us who want to get back to this recovery since it usually fixes all issues and don't have access to a pc at the time?

Default Stuck in CWM, unable to Mount storage

Hi,

I flashed this recovery using fastboot, but did not follow that with the kernel.sin

Now my device is stuck in recovery.

I cannot mount my storage (Error: Unable to open ums lunfile)

Is there a way to switch off the mobile now? Or should I wait till battery dies and then boot into fastboot?

Edit:
[SOLVED]:

Found that you cannot enable USB Storage from this recovery if stuck in this kind of situation (no system image flashed)

Only solution is to try and get into Fastboot. Before you try the key combos, keep a command line ready with "fastboot flash boot kernel.sin"

When you get the <Waiting for device> message, do the following:

1. Remove USB cable
2. from CWM menu, go to one line below the Reboot option, press and hold volume UP button (after pressing vol up, "reboot" option should now be highlighted)
3. Press power button and simultaneously insert USB cable
4. Blue led should glow and flashing should start in your CMD line

Repeat if unsuccessful. You can also try using FlashTool for this.

Phew. Cheers.
