[RECOVERY] TWRP 2.6.x (sources + installation app + downloads)
Almost a year back I released TWRP 2.4.x for all the Xperias available at that time. I wanted to do something similar, but for now it is only for the following devices
honami Xperia Z1
togari Xperia Z Ultra
huashan Xperia SP
mint Xperia T
tsubasa Xperia V
dogo Xperia Z
yuga Xperia Z
odin Xperia ZL
pollux Xperia Tablet Z LTE
pollux_windy Xperia Tablet Z WiFi
This time made a repo on github
All device configs, and also manifest file should be found here
KERNEL SOURCES (GPL COMPLIANCE)
The recovery.img includes a prebuilt kernel (the same prebuilt images that can be found inside each device tree on the github too. Although this kernel is never used, and is there just for the sake of being there, I would like to mention that :
Xperia T/V has been compiled from http://github.com/AOKP/kernel_sony_msm8x60
Xperia Z/ZL/TabZ has been compiles from http://github.com/CyanogenMod/androi...l_sony_apq8064
with the sources as they were on Oct 25, 2013.
To build yourself is pretty easy
repo init -u https://github.com/TWRPXperia/android -b cm-10.2
You will get out/target/product/yuga/recovery.img
Download recovery.img for your device from here http://uploaded.net/f/rwneq9
The recovery.img needs to be flashed to the FOTAKernel partition to be used (all kernels that support extract_elf_ramdisk, in other words, almost all custom kernels will be able to use this recovery).
Push the file to sdcard
Now flash it onto FOTAKernel partition
adb shell dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/FOTAKernel
TWRP XPERIA INSTALLER APP
I have also released an app that does the complete procedure of downloading the latest TWRP image (I will build and periodically update), and flashing it on the FOTAKernel partiton.
The app also allows you to keep a backup of your FOTAKernel partition before flashing and restoring the backup in case of flashing a wrong recovery file or a corrupt file. link to app thread
Team Win Recovery Project is completely the work of Team Win, (with @Dees_Troy
as some of the largest contributors).
Also the device side configs have been very well maintained by @Kali-
on the CM source trees which makes porting TWRP very easy.
