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

Hi
Just go E1, but run into a problem. Root (SuperSU 2.82 SR5), Debugging, authorization, all is fine, but CMD stops at "Unable to open system/boostrap/bin/busybox: No such file or directory".
I installed Stericson's BusyBox (1.28.4) and still nothing...
Any idea?

    Hope this is what you want. It's a pity how many files have been lost to time

      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

      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
