This is a CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.7 Touch Recovery for Xperia Z1



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






[ info ]

This recovery is built from CWM Recovery 6.0.4.7 sources and is integrated into stock kernel... I call this an advanced stock kernel with recovery!

the core kernel (zImage) is exactly the same as the one supplied by Sony for that particular firmware... only the ramdisk is changed to add recovery and other features!





[ credits / special thanks ]
  • Koush - for the brilliant work & coding on CWM recovery
  • CyanogenMod and FreeXperia Team (especially jerpelea) for too many things
  • ME for creating this for u guys!



[ Requirements ]
  • Bootloader unlocked
  • working fastboot
  • STOCK ROM FW:
    • 4.4.4
      • 14.4.A.0.108 - v05
    • 4.4.2
      • 14.3.A.0.757 - v03, v04
      • 14.3.A.0.681 - v02
    • 4.3
      • 14.2.A.1.136 - v01
    or ROMS BASED ON THAT FIRMWARE



[ features ]
  1. standard CWM recovery 6.0.4.7 - TOUCH RECOVERY!
  2. adb debugging is enabled by default in OS
  3. init.d support inbuilt!
  4. fixed root remount in ramdisk
  5. fixed kernel level RIC implementation
  6. TIP: if u are experiencing very slow backup in CWM do this




[ WARNING ]

UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER WITHOUT TA BACKUP WILL LEAD TO IRREVERSIBLE LOSS OF DRM KEYS!!!

I have had no problems with kernel and have tried CWM for backup/restore and installing zip from SD-card
And, yes backup was very slow as indicated in OP.

@DooMLoRD,

will it be ok if i re-lock bootloader using this kernel?

or must really use stock kernel before re-lock bootloader?

will be using flashtool to re-lock it.
