Hi guys,I made a working recovery for Xperia sp and have tested by China users. Now I share you a English version of recovery

[How to use]

Unlock your bootloader
reboot your phone into fastboot mode
flash the kernel with fastboot.

fastboot flash boot kernel.elf

Koush for recovery source
DoomLoRD for init.d scripts support and the fstab
FXP for boot scrpits.

So just a heads up here, i managed to test the CWM, it works! Just that i think people might find it hard to go into recovery mode. Have your phone TURNED OFF. HOLD VOLUME UP + POWER BUTTON at the same time. Once a blue flash and the first vibration occurs, you can now immediately release the POWER BUTTON. But keep holding onto the VOLUME UP BUTTON. Once the Boot logo shows up followed by the 2nd vibration, you can now immediately release the VOLUME UP BUTTON. You'll go into CWM Mode

Ok, just a little report. I just had 2 FCs now after installing it yesterday. Not a big issue to me. I'm guessing i should just fix permissions.
