Hi guys I got Xperia T3 D5102 few days back.

I rooted it & deodexed rom & now making few mods.

I tried making advance reboot Mod with restart options to recovery, system restart & soft reboot.

Reboot & soft reboot option is working fine but reboot to Recovery is not working. It ends up in just normal reboot of phone.

Also I tried to go the hardware way by trying key combinations in many ways
Power + Volume up/down doesn't work
Power + Volume both btns also didn't work.

Also tried using ADB commands for Advance power menu
. But no luck then too.

I suspect there is no recovery partition and hence didn't boot.

The below table shows the partition table

Need help from developers /modders on how to proceed further and lemme know some hint to proceed.

I suspect recovery partition missing. Anyone can confirm the same ? The above table would give a clear layout of the memory partitions of the phone.

Request someone to throw light on this !

Thanks

Xperia devices don't have a recovery partition. Neither do they have any stock recovery.

None of them has AFAIK. Can u give some example of device which might have? Because recovery is basically flashed in FOTA partition
