Not Working

Tried it and it just gets stuck on "Waiting for device..." everything is correct, connected with debugging on and it does not do anything, do I have to be in adb? I also tried to extract it and it still does nothing. :(

Any Ideas? there isn't much to go off, plug in this click this aaaand done, I really want to flash this. Please help

Yes i do have adb drivers installed, I can confirm this because i am able to record with litecam android recorder, which needs adb to work. are there a specific set of drivers maybe? the drivers come with the pc companion app which I have installed

When you use the installer have you tried to start it as admin?
Okay tried this and i got... somewhere, now it says
"/system/bin/sh: su: not found" this means I don't have root, when I do. I have heaps of apps that have root permision and they work fine, I tried finding the /sh folder in the /system/bin but that wasn't there

EDIT: okay so I did have the /sh file in /system/bin I thought it was a folder not a file, but that still doesnt really help my problem :(

have you allowed ADB to use root on your E1?

disconnect all android phones and close all android emulators (example: bluestacks app player) and try it again

Hi everyone!
First of all thank you very much for your great work on this device!
Here's my problem with my SS E1 D2005 (bootloader not allowed to be unlocked) : I was in 20.1.a2.19 kk 4.4.2 and wanted root. So I downgraded the kernel to 20.1.a.0.47 and tried to get root access with towelroot but the apk said 'this phone isn't currently supported'.
Finally, I downgraded again to 20.0.a.1.21 jb 4.3 and towelroot rooted my device properly. I wanted to install recovery following this tut but it's only for 4.4.2 so not working (no access to recovery and boot loop).
I need root access on the latest 20.1.a.2.19 but I'm stuck in this 20.0.a.1.21 kernel because I can't find a jb recovery allowing me to do updates without losing root access...
Is there a solution for me or not? Can I build my own recovery based on JB sources for my device?
Thanking you in advance.

You have to install Busybox
There are many installers in Google Play

    This Custom Recovery doesn't need a unlocked bootloader, but you must have:
    - a rooted Xperia E1
    - a computer
    - a brain

    How to Install:
    1. Extract the downloaded zip
    2. Enable ADB at Settings> Developer Options> USB debugging.
    3. Connect your phone to PC using USB
    4. Run install.bat

    Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZCRhr7_DQxUGZpbzlrb3V5SlU/view?usp=sharing

    I have found this Recovery here: http://galaxyypocketfans.blogspot.de/2014/11/xperiae1all-variants-bootstrap-for.html

    I keep getting this:

    Is there anyway to fix this?
    I have Busybox installed.
    Hi, for anyone getting the busybox not installed error....

    I just installed this on a friend's phone and also got the error, so I opened up the install.bat, the line that does the work and contains the problem is this one:
    adb shell su -c "cd /data/local/tmp/strapinstaller && chmod 755 system/bootstrap/bin/busybox && chmod 755 install_hijack.sh && ./install_hijack.sh"

    By that stage the installer data is already on the phone, so the only problem is that the 2x chmod commands didn't work, and the install_hijack.sh hasn't yet run.

    To get past this, connect to adb shell and type su, this should give you a '#' prompt indicating you have superuser access. Then type those commands manually, I did one line at a time, so :
    cd /data/local/tmp/strapinstaller
    chmod 755 system/bootstrap/bin/busybox
    chmod 755 install_hijack.sh
    ./install_hijack.sh

    And all worked fine, recovery installed.

    You can flash an official kernel from Sony even if the bootloader is locked/can't be unlocked.
    With Flashtool, selecting flashmode.

    Tips to install this recovery without pc ..

    -Extract bootstrap alpha 0.1.zip though root explorer for example
    -Rename /system/bin/e2fsck to e2fsck_hijacked
    -Move "e2fsck" from /bootstrap alpha 0.1/files/system/bin to /system/bin (set e2fsck permission to 0755 "rw xr xr x")
    -Move "bootstrap" folder from /bootstrap alpha 0.1/files/system to /system, no need to set the permission of "bootstrap" folder
    -At last reboot your device, when you see blue led bring up, press your volume down button, and you'll go onto phillz recovery
