This is a CWM recovery for the Xperia T - you need to have unlocked your bootloader at http://unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com/instructions.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKING YOUR PHONE ETC. ETC. ETC. - I'm sure you've heard the rest before.

Steps for installation:
  1. Download recovery from http://goo.im/devs/tilal6991/recover...t/15102012.img
  2. Download fastboot and get it into a place where you can run it - I'm not going to provide instructions how - guides are all over the place
  3. Open a command window in the place where fastboot is
  4. Copy the recovery.img to the fastboot folder
  5. Type fastboot flash boot recovery.img
  6. Type fastboot reboot
  7. You will be in CWM!

Note:
The first time you install a ROM you will need to flash the boot.img of that ROM using fastboot - I'm hoping this restriction can be removed at a future date.

A CM port is also up - compiled by me.

Thanks to:
All the CM guys for having their code on Github - I didn't do anything but compile and figure out the instructions for flashing.

Hmm, so tempting but not sure since you've not tested it on the T. Someone else gonna go first?

EDIT: I am sorry, a bad assumption possibly. Have you tested this on a T?

Switch off phone.

Power on phone with volume down held.

And although I haven't tested there's nothing that indicates backup/restore won't work.

As I said the first time you flash a ROM you will need to fast boot install the boot mage of the ROM.

Yes. Since you are flashing the boot partition its a pseudo recovery so a ROM needs to be flashed.
