Default [E/dual] [CWM] boot+recovery image for stock JB

This is a boot image with CWM for stock JB. The included kernel versions are stock Sony (versions 11.3.A.0.47 and 11.3.A.2.1). You may need an unlocked boot loader for this.

This can also be used to root stock JB ROM by installing Superuser through recovery.

Downloads:
Xperia E single
Xperia E dual
Note: Don't directly link to these releases. Link to this thread with current releases instead.

Usage instructions:
Boot to fastboot and flash boot image:
Code:
Select Code
fastboot flash boot <filename>.elf
Recovery boot is triggered by pressing any of the volume keys during bootup while the notification bar lights up.

How to run fastboot is explained in Sony's instructions. If you still need help with that, please Google it yourself because there are plenty of guides.

Standard disclaimer that I'm not responsible for any messups applies.

Thanks go out to FXP for the initial Nanhu device port.

Release history:
2013-05-26:
Separate versions for single/dual-SIM variants
Shut down option added to CWM
Proper default.prop included

2013-05-13:
Initial release

This thread is about CWM, not how to get JB. I've explained how to get it from SUS on another thread.

First post updated with new release.

Single-SIM E users, please flash the new single-SIM specific version. The stock kernel on the devices are slightly different, most importantly the battery percentage specification, so the reported battery level will be off when running the other device's kernel.

The method of flashing a custom boot image won't work with a locked boot loader.

There may be other methods like this where recovery is placed on the system partition instead of the boot partition, but I haven't looked into that.
