Thanks for this. It resolves an issue I have had: restoring a nandroid without CWM in the \system folder. This saves having to mess with the cable and the PC and remembering where I archived CWM for my Play. (I spent a miserable hour trying to figure out why CWM's install program wouldn't recognize my phone before I realized I was using a version for my daughter's Vortex. :rolleyes: )

what can we do with CWM besides backup and restore?
thanks for answering
ps. i'm a newbie and with my phone's bootloader unlocked

You c an flash themes and mods from the forum :)
But for me the best part is the backups and restore. :)

Can we flash a CWM zip which roots the phone?? It would help rooting my wifes phone.

Edit: forgot to say, her phone is stock and bootloader locked.

No sorry :) as the app needs root to give you CWM.

can we only use themes and mods or can we have custom roms (and kernels?) as well?

you can use any rom that is built off stock and does not use fastboot. ie any rom for locked Bootloader should be ok.

but i advise caution. ask the dev if you are unsure.

Hey guys, just making clear:
this is CMW recovery, so you can do anything that requires you to have CMW.

Now, if you are on a locked bootloader, you can still have CMW,
but consult the developer of the ROM to confirm whether you can flash the ROM or not.
As far as the rest go (themes, tweaks, etc etc etc) you can use them normally.

Once CWM has been installed through the app..(having the stock 2.3).. i make a back up of the stock 2.3 rom... then i flash lets say CM7 rom for the xperia play... will CWM recovery still be installed on the device or am I going to have to install it again in order to do any restores... or CWM will only work and install with the stock rom. Want to make sure before getting stuck. Thanks i.a.

Ok just installed on my Arc S and made a backup.

If i change something in future (etc.. theme mod) and get a bootloop, can i just restore the backup without a reflash?

Correct i have done this a few times now.

Can we uninstall it like any apk and everything will be as before installing it?

Thx

Not at the moment i will be adding a uninstall option later atm it doesn't like doing it.

Is it possible to install any kind of MIUI to my locked Xperia Arc with this tooL?

I dont think so as MiUI needs it's own kernel i think.

could this work on NEO V (mt11i) ?

yes very soon :D i just have to update the app.

xperia arc

First of all thanks pvy, this really rocks.:D And yes I can now easily back up my whole phone. But here there are some questions for you... (yes I know, questions may be silly, but I afraid to brick my phone.)

I'm using an unlocked and rooted 2.3.3. arc(lt15i) with 3.0.1.A.0.145 firm. Now I want to use cm7 instead of my stock rom. can I install cm7 via cwm(which is installed by your .apk) (and also yes this cm7 is a cwm installable zip file)

On another page I saw that some of users stuck to bootloop while installing cm7 and they say something about anthalservice.apk which is this, apk is the reason for bootloop. Do you have any idea about that?

And lastly because of lack of my knowledge about android file order system, there is another folder(bootable) which keeps cwm inside right? so if my phone fails to boot, no matter what, can I easly fall back to cwm and restore my phone via backup tool...?

thanks again
Serdar

    Formerly 'Xperia CWM Auto-Installer'

    READ THIS BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER!!!

    ic_launcher.png


    Howdy All!

    So We've been Busy yet again
    And we are proud to re-release This Tool.
    Whats new

    All New UI that uses the ActionBarSherlock framework to give full Holo theme + Action Bar to devices pre ICS

    To support more phones i have had to change the way the app works.
    (OLD VERSIONS AVAILABLE IN ATTACHMENTS)
    What it does now
    1 - Check your phone model and compare it to a list of supported devices.
    2 - If you phone is supported you can pick any of the supported CWM versions for you phone.
    3 - When you click install it will download the CWM "recovery.tar" to your SD-card .
    4 - Build you a "chargemon" file to match you phone.
    5 - Take the charger + sh file from within the app.
    6 - It then backs all the previous files up to the SD-Card and moves all the files to system as needed.
    7 - if there are no problems then it is done and CWM is installed(into system)

    Comming Soon
    With the new app i am also able to do many new things that were not possible in it's last incarnation

    (in no particular order)
    1-Click De-Bloating of Stock Firmware
    1-Click Enable of Init.d support for locked Bootloaders / Stock Kernels
    Few more in the works too

    Many more phones
    My current plan is to support most Xperia devices
    My current plan is to add these soon
    X10, X8, Xperia S, U, P, Sola
    also if there is no compatibility issues the app does not need to be updated to add phones / recoveries. I can do it all server side.

    This App will work with the Sony Xperia porfolio. it will install CWM into the system partition so you can use recovery even with a locked bootloader!

    Usage

    Launch the Application,
    Swipe Between Tabs or Pick Tabs
    Let it detect your phones setup
    Press Install and CWM will be installed into your system.

    To access recovery simply, reboot phone and press any key on boot at the Sony Ericsson logo, when the notification LED turns Blue. or use the "reboot to recovery" button from within the app.

    Recovery
    Currently there are 2 recoveries that are able to be installed

    2.3.* Roms
    5.0.2.7 for GB Roms (nobodyAtall) [link]

    4.0.* Roms
    5.5.0.4 Recovery for ICS Based ROMS (pvyParts)
    Changes
    -USB Storage Mount works
    -System wont be corrupted (Thanks nAa for the pointers + puppet13th for testing)


    Requirements
    Stock ROM
    Root
    (Locked Boot Loader, if you are unlocked you really don't need this)

    apply update from sdcard
    wipe data / factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    install zip from sdcard
    backup and restore

    Notes to everyone

    Do NOT use this recovery if you are not in Stock firmware.

    Hi,

    I have official ics on arc s, since I've installed this, my phone doesn't have offline charging, it just bootloops until I disconnect charger and naturally turn phone on or I restart using cwm menu.

    Can you get offline charging working on ics Rom? :confused:

    Sent from my LT18i using xda premium

    replace the charger file with this one for me and test if it works.

    NOT A FLASHABLE ZIP!

    extract and use root explorer or similar to replace the one in system/bin/

    perms should be 0755 or
    x x x
    x 0 x
    x 0 x

    Also let me know if it does or does not work.

    Pvy.

    No offence but Se tweaker and some other ways (doom lords touch screen enabled) CWM are already in Locked Bootloaders and Unlocked bootloaders.

    i saw it, just saying ;)

    Offence aside.

    This app requires you to know how to use your phone and thats it.
    No need to get your pc talking to your phone in debug mode

    this can be quite hard for some ppl especialy if you use pc's at a library or a iCafe ect. or have a PC that has broken bits. or maybe your usb port is broken. i think you get the point.

    kindly point me to where these apps do this and i will be more than happy apologise.

    Comments like yours are why developers leave phones and never come back. maybe keep that in mind. :) just saying you know.

    i will not reply to any more post of this type as it is not what this forum is about! I Kindly ask that you pm me if you have any more to say so we can keep this thread clean.

    Thanks Pvy.

    No offense but you may have noticed that this in an app, it works without PC, directly from your phone.
    It uses nAa files, exactly like the tools you mentioned. Only it makes it easier. Sorry about that... :p
    So no offense, but please take some time to understand before passing judgement.
    No offense. :p
