Special Thanks:
  • @DooMLoRD for all his excellent work on our much loved Sony phones!
  • 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)
  • @gregbradley for his extensive testing on the Xperia Z1

Well, enjoy!

The origins of this XZDualRecovery package are in the packages done by:
Krabappel2548, Cpasjuste and DooMLoRD
Thank you for your excellent work guys!

Your thanks (and donations) should (also) go out to them, they deserve it!

  • Send me the contents of all the log files from right after a failed boot attempt or a link to an archive containing these logs by PM (that's including the .old rotation logs!). If you have no website or online location to store the logs, PM me for an email address to send them to.
  • Logs can be found inside:
    • /cache/recovery
    • /tmp/XZDualRecovery
    • /storage/sdcard1/XZDualRecovery
    • /cache/XZDualRecovery (if the previous exists, this one will not!)
    NOTE: I need them ALL!
I really need them to troubleshoot what failed and what worked OK. Thank you!


There seems to be a problem with the dualrecovery2.7.129-BETA for the Z2 tablet on locked bootloader. I was on the 2.7.125-BETA when I updated to 2.7.129. Philz recovery is not coming up and just the Sony logo was showing (the TWRP however was working). I had to hard shutdown the device and downgrade to 2.7.128 and it worked perfectly. I tried both the flashable and the installer. Just wanted to let you know.

Keep up the good work. Thank you!

It's possible but I'm really stretched for time as it is already.

If anyone else wants a crack at it:

[DIY GUIDE] Create a personalized ROM yourself!

It's really easy, just replace the recovery files in the base packages with the one's for the Tab Z2 and give it a spin.

You have my blessing to release it publicly of course

What filesystem is there on the sdcard?

Only ext2/3/4, exfat and fat32 are supported... But it could also be because of a strange way it got formatted from the factory.

Thank you for answering. It is exfat. Working okey in OS and other devices. Strange.

Some manufacturers format the entire module instead of creating a partition. This is a common mistake among manufacturers ... You can try to copy all of the data off the sdcard and reformat it with exfat in windows, that should fix any weirdness on the sdcard.
