PhilZ Touch is a CWM Advanced Edition that adds all the features you could ever miss in CWM
It is a well proven recovery for many phones

It also adds a full touch interface a completely configurable GUI


Please give your feedback, what works, and any bug you could encounter

Flashing and updating instructions

If you have pure untouched stock
Before you begin: Make sure that you have the ROM you want in .zip format and this recovery in .zip format on your external sd card. If you don't have one, on your internal.

1. Install Towelroot APK.
2. Launch it, click on magic button, bah, you're now rooted.
3. Make a backup of your TA partition using i.e. Backup TA. DON'T SKIP THIS STEP, or you will lose your warranty forever. You need root for this step, so don't try it without 1 and 2.
4. Get familiar with fastboot.
5. Turn off your device.
6. Hold Vol-up button, don't release it.
7. Plug your phone to your PC, while you're holding Vol-up.
8. It won't boot (black screen) but LED should indicate that device is turned on.
9. Execute fastboot -i 0x0fce getvar version. Use fastboot.exe instead of fastboot if you're on windows, do the same for all fastboot commands, you should already know it.
10. If you got return value, such as "0.5", you did everything correctly, congratulations! If you did not get return value, don't go further until you get it, because your fastboot connection doesn't work.
11. Get bootloader unlock code from Sony here. You can view your IMEI with *#06# code if you need it.
12. Unlock bootloader with fastboot -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xCODE where CODE is the code from Sony. I.e. if you got "ABCD0011" code on your e-mail, execute fastboot -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xABCD0011
13. You should get response like "Okay".
14. Extract boot.img file from the zip you downloaded from this thread. Put in the same directory as fastboot.
15. Flash boot.img with fastboot flash boot boot.img.
16. Execute fastboot reboot to reboot.
17. Wait for your device to turn on, then immediately after you see that your led changed color to pink, start clicking Vol-Up button repeatedly. Stop when you see that your led changed it's color to blue.
18. If you did everything correctly, you should have booted custom recovery right now.
19. Enter "mounts & storage", and format: /system /cache /data. If you don't have anything important on your internal sd card, I strongly suggest to format /data and /data/media as well.
20. Flash any ROM you want
21. Remember that your ROM will overwrite your recovery (kernel), so if you want to preserve recovery, flash this zip right after every ROM flash.
22. Finally, reboot, be patient, you shouldn't get any bootloop.

If you already have CWM, TWRP or any custom recovery installed
1. Simply flash this recovery with install zip option.

I'm using CM11 (Free Xperia) with CWM Recovery , is it possible to install this recovery on the current? would it be possible to make any kernel related issues? (phone not booting up and else).

This kernel has been only tested on my private ArchiDroid 2.X build (not public yet), but it's based on FreeXperia sources so it should be compatible with all CM11 ROMs that don't need any kernel-ramdisk-based changes, including your CM11.

In case of issues you can always reflash, as this recovery boots and works properly, apart from some functions we're currently fixing with Phil.

I also tried to build Philz and was succeeded, but it has same issue. I contacted Philz he told to me to enable Axis parameter in BoardConfig.mk but still the same. What you think, why this issue is caused? Due to faulty Touch screen events?
Devices which I supports
╬ Sony xperia M ╬ Sony xperia E ╬

Why you shouldn't get bootloop? It's only for CM11.
