Here you can download a kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery built into it, which allows you to flash zips and to make and restore backups.
This version of ClockworkMod Recovery is the ICS version, so it is the latest (until there is a jellybean one).

Nickholtus has prepared for you an easy to flash package here for you:

Xperia P:

Xperia U:

Xperia Sola (working external sdcard):

To flash this recovery, download the kernel, put it in your fastboot folder and name it kernel.elf.
Then open up a command prompt and in that folder do:
fastboot flash boot kernel.elf
This is a joint effort of I, nickholtus, K900 and championswimmer, our sources are at, our main aim is to make trees that will build on AOSP and any other android source tree (AOKP - unicorns).

Thanks to Arakmar for clearing things up for me on how to individually compile the recovery binary.

Here is my progress:
Got minimal device tree set up for kumquat (ST25i, Xperia U)
All I need now is to make recovery.fstab, can people post mount info for P, U and Sola?
Then after that I edit ram disk to allow booting into recovery and I will post it on this thread.

Got minimal device tree done - check
Compiled recovery - check
Now all we need to do is inject recovery into boot image, then you can have recovery on stock kernel

Our sources are at
Current repo I am using is device_sony_kumquat


Edit: from above info /sdcard is at /dev/block/vold/179:14
