Special Thanks:

  • The Team Win developers for TWRP
  • The ClockWorkMod developers for CWM
  • @alexocean for his awesome job testing almost all FW releases and the discovery of SuperSU causing problems for the installation of this recovery!
  • @RoberM for testing
  • @surdu_petru for testing and handy pointers
  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.
  • @lancebukkake for finding the TWRP 'fix' to use exFAT formatted sdcards!
  • @delewer for the final fix for TWRP and its use of exFAT formatted sdcards
  • @DevShaft for some code help on the windows installer (the menu!)
  • @Androxyde again, but now for his bash code/script suggestions... oh boy this guy is a genius!
  • @Tamirwig and @shoey63 for their excellent job at testing early BETA's (Xperia Z)

Well, enjoy!

Would like to report that your TWRP recovery log font seems a little too large for Z1 Compact screen. Can you resize the font size just on the log window of TWRP?

I think the issue is because the DPI set in default.prop is

# Graphics
ro.sf.lcd_density=480

where Z1 Compact only uses 320 DPI.

Thanks for the report, I'll have that fixed next version.

Hi @[NUT] ! I tried changing the default.prop to ro.sf.lcd_density to 320 and it's still the same. So the issue is not with the default.prop. Now I don't know what the issue is.

The default.prop actually reflects the setting used at compile time. So changing that will have no effect indeed.

Like I said, I'll have it fixed in the next version
