This is a CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.3.2 for Xperia Tablet Z



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





[ info ]

This Recovery is built from CWM 6.0.3.2 sources! There have been some changes made to get this working on stock kernel of Xperia

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!




tested on SGP321 (WiFi + LTE version) & on SGP311 (WiFi only) version!

please have the stock FTF, for UR device number, at hand before testing this!




[ WARNING ]

DO NOT FLASH THE SGP321 KERNEL ON SGP31x AND VICE VERSA, DEVICE WILL NOT BOOT!



[ 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 @championswimmer 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

[ features ]
  1. standard CWM recovery 6.0.3.2!
  2. recovery now supports internal storage!
  3. internal storage (datamedia) mounted to /sdcard while external card is mounted as /external_sd
  4. you can now flash files from internal storage
  5. you can take backups onto the internal storage (might not be compatible with CM10.1)
  6. TIP: if u are experiencing very slow backup in CWM do this

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

It does NOT work with the Wifi-only version. To recover you phone, just flash your system dump on it.
