This is a custom recovery for Xperia X10 mini/pro based on Cyanogen's recovery source.
Credits and special thanks to everyone involved in Cyanogenmod project!


Thanks to:

ruotal for framebuffer fix!
zoz33 for his apk installer!


DaRk_dOg peetr_ Zocker Tko for alpha testing!





How?
Press BACK button few times right after white SE logo appears.


Controls:
Use VOLUME-UP and VOLUME-DOWN to browse, HOME to select, BACK to go back.


Features:
  • ADB root shell
  • Reboot
  • Install update.zip from SD Card
  • Factory reset (full wipe)
  • Wipe cache partition
  • Install custom zip
  • Backup and Restore
  • Partition tools
    • Mount/unmount partitions
    • Format partitions
    • Mount as USB Storage
  • Advanced options
    • Wipe Dalvik cache
    • Wipe battery stats
    • Fix permissions for apps (FC fix)

Automatic Installation (recommended):
To be announced

Manual Installation:
- Download and unpack the recovery package
- use Root Explorer to remount /system rw
- copy the content of the package (3 files) into /system/bin folder


Notes:
Please bear in mind that it's not the regular android recovery (we cannot replace recovery image without cracked bootloader). Instead, the boot hijacking is used to start recovery mode. You still need basic files on your /system partition to use this. NEVER use the "format /system" option (it's there only to check if anyone reads this long, boring note).

This recovery is NOT tested for compatibility with app2sd! Use at your own risk.

This recovery WILL be used to flash custom roms easily.

DO NOT reinstall busybox. Recovery depends on it's particular busybox version.


Requirements:
1. Phone must be rooted
2. Busybox from the market installed



Changelog:
0.1-beta: Initial release


Download:
