@popfan

Do we need to do the whole rooting process again?
Since the rest of the steps seem to remain the same, Could we just move the recovery.tar file to /system/bin.
Would that be okay or do i need to do something else.

I tried to just move the recovery.tar using root explorer, restarted the phone and tapping on the Sony logo, did not go any where. Did not even boot.

Not for me.
Executed the install.bat as you said.

Edit:

When I tap a few times on the Sony Logo, the phone stops booting.

Ok, I fixed the files. I just noticed that my zip program did not zip the folders to right position. I also made sure everything is in the right location.

Looks like it installed fine. Running a back up now. This is really great work!

Well, the back up looked like is was running fine until the end, then it started wigging out. Warnings of "Xperia Home stopping" kept flashing up. I finally had to hard reboot to get it unstuck. I don't know if the back up it created is viable.

I'm curious to know... The zip file you are trying to load for the Bootanimation... Was it edited to be compatible with the Ion, or is this one from the other device that you just tried to flash?

I think for a quick test, and to ensure the file is signed properly... Someone should try something from here: http://uot.dakra.lt/
Maybe just a boot animation, or perhaps a battery mod.

I will later if no one else has, but I have work for another 9 or so hours...So I can't do it at this current moment.

Need an Alpha or Beta tester? Inbox me!

It is a working bootanimation that is for the Xperia S, which has the same screen resolution as our ION.
