this is based on the XZU recovery for locked bootloaders by @Krabappel2548
This thread will stay a dev and discussion thread for further development issues and fixes!
Download link can be found here: XZU recovery for locked bootloaders
THIS IS INTENDED FOR LOCKED BOOTLOADER DEVICES! But works on Unlocked bootloader too
THIS IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT STAGE!
DO NOT EXPECT IT TO WORK PROBLEM FREE!
rooted Xperia Z1
how to enter recovery:
when you see the Sony bootlogo and when device vibrates/leds light up u can use the entry keys to enter the corresponding recovery
VOLUME UP -> CWM
VOLUME DOWN -> TWRP
BOTH CWM 126.96.36.199 and TWRP 188.8.131.52 work
you can enter both recoveries and flash small files
what doesnt work:
in this particular version of CWM, adb doesnt work; it will be fixed later.. for debugging use TWRP
Shoudl be fixed:
TWRP and CWM both can destroy /cache and /system when trying to format it. Restoring your phone using an FTF is the only option left if that happens. You can however try to not format but use rm -rf instead in TWRP (TIC BOX!!), which will do for now.
