Database [RECOVERY] TWRP 2.6.x (sources + installation app + downloads)

OP championswimmer

25th October 2013, 08:53 PM   |  #1  
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

 * rebuilt the app on playstore from scratch
 * app supports all funcitons like format, restore backup of FOTA
 * app also has support for CWM flashing
 * support for Xperia Z1 and Z Utra added
Dec 20, 2013
 * rebuilt all recoveries
 * added Xperia SP support
Nov 29, 2013
 * rebuilt all recoveries with latest twrp2.6.x source
 * added Xperia ZR (dogo) support

This time made a repo on github
All device configs, and also manifest file should be found here

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
repo sync
. build/env*sh
lunch cm_yuga-userdebug
mka recoveryimage
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
adb push recovery.img /sdcard/
Now flash it onto FOTAKernel partition

adb shell dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/FOTAKernel

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 and @bigbiff as some of the largest contributors).
Also the device side configs have been very well maintained by @Kali- and @FXP on the CM source trees which makes porting TWRP very easy.
