  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.

  • @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!

Can I only boot the recovery via the app and quit that delay at boot?

Thanks for all Nut, you working hard for us, thanks.

Yes, that's possible but do you wish never to have the option to boot in to recovery by key press?

You are aware that you will not be able to enter recovery when or if you ever end up in a bootloop?

You actually can but it requires an sdcard1 which holds the xzdualrecovery folder... It's possible to enter recovery by creating a file called 'boot' there, but it does make this way out of a bootloop require a pc and a sd cardreader.

Hi mate, just few things to ask

Code:
When installing custom ROMs:
Be sure to flash Z1-lockeddualrecovery[VERSION]-BETA.flashable.zip from http://nut.xperia-files.com after installing the ROM and before you reboot, this way you will not lose recovery!
Is that mean if I flash this recovery over beta 2.7.73 I'll have to reflash older recovery to be able to flash ROM?

I guess not - but just want to be sure...

Sorry I just checked OP again and now I get it.
That's for flashing new kernel or ROM with a kernel - to be sure recovery will stay or if recovery isn't already in kernel.

BTW - thanks again for awesome work...

It should.

And it's a valid question
