* I am not responsible for any bricks for the phone!!



Requirements:
1) Phone must be rooted
2) Busybox from the market must be installed
Busybox Link: https://market.android.com/details?id=stericson.busybox

Instructions:
1) Download the .apk file and install
2) Install busybox from market
3) Reboot and click a few times the back button to boot into xRecovery

*For those who can't install the xRecovery through the app, you may try to check if there's a xrecovery.tar in /system/bin/
Just delete it if found, so that you can install the correct xRecovery through the app

Credits:
zoz33 - for this idea
zdzihu - for the fantasic xrecovery

Please comment below to let me know if its working or not
For any problems, please feel free to tell me

I have tried to install it with rooted stock 2.1. It says: "Application not installed"
How could it be the xRecovery with 425 kb while Xrecovery.tar file at least 1.6 Mb?

Lol, it's so hard to move 3 files with Root explorer.
Anyway, good work, but i won't test it with this comments for bricks... I prefer old school.
