Angry CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.6 + ROOT for Xperia Z

This is a CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.6 for Xperia Z



Credits and special thanks to Koush and everyone else involved in Cyanogenmod project!






[ info ]

This Recovery is built from CWM 6.0.4.5 sources! There have been some changes made to get this working on stock kernel of Xperia

Initially i didnt have this device with me so all testing was done remotely on users devices...

this would not have been possible without the device sources by FreeXperia Team! thank you guys for your commitment to development of Xperia devices and CONGRATULATIONS for getting CM10.1 booting on this device so fast! awesome devs!




[ credits / special thanks ]
  • Koush - for the brilliant work & coding on CWM recovery
  • CyanogenMod and FreeXperia Team (especially jerpelea) for too many things *
  • lilstevie & Dees_Troy for their hack to get recovery working properly on 3.4 kernel!
  • special thanks to yeeson and others for helping out with testing and risking their devices for the sake of development!!! and NO, their devices was NOT damaged during testing
  • ME for creating this for u guys!



[ Requirements ]
  • Bootloader unlocked
  • working fastboot
  • STOCK ROM FW:
    • 4.3 -> 10.4.B.0.569 / 10.4.1.B.0.101
    • 4.2.2 -> 10.3.A.0.423 /*10.3.1.A.0.244 / 10.3.1.A.2.67
    • 4.1.2 -> 10.1.A.1.350 / 10.1.A.1.434 / 10.1.1.A.1.253
    or ROMS BASED ON THAT FIRMWARE



[ features ]
  1. CWM 6.0.4.6
  2. faster reboot into recovery
  3. supports native reboot into recovery! (adb reboot recovery)
  4. recovery now supports internal storage!
  5. internal storage (datamedia) mounted to /sdcard while external card is mounted as /external_sd
  6. you can now flash files from internal storage
  7. you can take backups onto the internal storage (might not be compatible with CM10.1)
  8. TIP: if u are experiencing very slow backup in CWM do this




[ WARNING ]


THIS RECOVERY IS STILL IN TESTING... MAKE SURE THAT U HAVE UR COMPLETE DATA BACKED-UP (INCLUDING INTERNAL STORAGE/SDCARD DATA)


THIS IS MENT ONLY FOR STOCK ROM FIRMWARE or ROMS BASED ON THAT FIRMWARE...




[ known issues ]

  1. USB storage doesnt mount in recovery (can be fixed, i think)
  2. do not use this for flashing CM10.1/CM10.2/CM11 (u will need to use the CM kernel for that)


the last two issues are with the way things are mapped on the device, nothing much can be done at the moment about this




[ how to flash this kernel ] (via recovery) [RECOMMEDED]
  1. download the kernel package update.zip
  2. save the package update.zip to sdcard (of phone)
  3. reboot phone and enter recovery
  4. flash the kernel package update.zip
  5. reboot phone and enjoy this kernel



[ how to flash this kernel ] (via fastboot)
  1. download the kernel package update.zip
  2. save it on c: and extract the boot.img from the package
  3. save the boot.img to the folder containing fastboot binary
  4. flash the boot.img using fastboot:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  5. reboot from fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
  6. the device should now start booting
  7. now follow the instructions to flash kernel through recovery as there are many files which need to be placed in system for compatibility/stability!
  8. enjoy this kernel



[ how to enter recovery ]

when you see the Sony logo and the LED light turns pink/amber/orange keep tapping/pressing VOLUME UP key



[ how to Root ]

i even have custom kernel ready with some decent overclock 1.8Ghz... may be we can try even 2ghz but that might be overkill but i guess we cna keep the phone in water if it gets too hot!!! ... i wish i had the device working, testing on it would be so much faster
