Angry [D550X] CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.6 + ROOT for Xperia Z1 Compact {KitKat!} [20140410]

This is a CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.6 Touch Recovery for Xperia Z1 Compact!



Credits and special thanks to Koush and everyone else involved in Cyanogenmod project!






[ info ]

This Recovery is built from CWM 6.0.4.6 sources!

I dont have this device with me and I dont intend to buy one... my friend wanted root on his phone so I created this to help him out...

all the testing was done remotely on users devices...





[ PROOF ]






[ credits / special thanks ]
  • Koush - for the brilliant work & coding on CWM recovery
  • CyanogenMod and FreeXperia Team (especially jerpelea) for too many things *
  • special thanks to @swedan for helping out with testing and risking his devices for the sake of development!!! and NO, his phone was NOT damaged during testing
  • ME for creating this for u guys!



[ Requirements ]
  • Bootloader unlocked
  • working fastboot
  • STOCK ROM FW:
    • 4.4.2
      • 14.3.A.0.757 - v04
      • 14.3.A.0.681 - v03
    • 4.3
      • 14.2.A.1.142 - v02
      • 14.2.A.1.114 - v01
    or ROMS BASED ON THAT FIRMWARE



[ features ]
  1. standard CWM recovery 6.0.4.6 - TOUCH RECOVERY!
  2. kernel is insecure (ro.secure=0)
  3. adb debugging is enabled by default in OS
  4. TIP: if u are experiencing very slow backup in CWM do this




[ WARNING ]


for flashing this kernel you WILL NEED TO UNLOCK BOOTLOADER! Check this thread for more info (same steps as Xperia Z1 are used for Xperia Z1 Compact)


UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER WITHOUT TA BACKUP WILL LEAD TO IRREVERSIBLE LOSS OF DRM KEYS!!!


AND YES CAMERA STILL WORKS AFTER UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER!!!



[ known issues ]

  1. adb is not working in recovery (can be fixed later)





[ how to flash this kernel ] (via fastboot)
  1. download the kernel image
  2. save the boot.img to the folder containing fastboot binary
  3. flash the boot.img using fastboot:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  4. reboot from fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
  5. the device should now start booting
  6. enjoy!



[ how to enter recovery ]

when you see the Sony logo and the LED light turns pink/amber/orange keep tapping/pressing VOLUME UP key

thanks a lot but I'm a little confused

For the moment I would like just to root the phone
is that possible without unlocking the bootloader?

because if it is not possible, I would like to make a TA backup but it needs root :S

My z1 came with 267 firmware. So I downgraded to 534. Used kingo root to root it. Then backup TA. and used this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606
So my phone was rooted on 4.3 with locked bootloader. Enjoy!
