The Above one is the Easier Method and below is the old copying method using Root Explorer :


Installation *Requires Root
Download CWM From here and extract its contents.

Using Root explorer: copy ALL the contents of the system folder (system/bin and system/xbin) to /system (system/bin and system/xbin respectively), then give 755 permissions to those files, especially to /system/bin/chargemon, or you'll get bootloop. Double check everything before rebooting.

Usage

When booting your phone and when the 'Sony Ericsson' logo appear, press and release continuously the volume down button.
Once you are in the CWM recovery, use the volume keys to navigate upwards / downwards, the 'home' key to select, the 'back' key to go back.


Notes to everyone:

Do NOT use this recovery if you are not in Stock 2.3 firmware.

Ok, trying it. I'm working on the installation, in a spanish forum, of custom roms based on stock kernel in phones with lock bootloader via convert them to recovery files and it's a shame that i need to reinstall recovery every time. Thanks.

for those who r are unable to enter recovery , try this

1. switch off your phone
2. press the power button & quickly start pressing the VOLUME DOWN button untill RECOVERY appears
( i started pressing volume button way before i saw SONY ERICSSON logo )

BUTTON BEHAVIOR ON NEO V

Ok not to shatter the fun but , installing custom Roms (cm7 , mini) will need unlocked bootloader ,so if bootloader is locked no custom Roms

But we can backup/ restore stock Roms , install flashable theme tweaks

Problem is new kernel installation. I installed CM7 with this metod and works, but the lack of good kernel for that rom makes it useless

Bootloader locked, installed via conversion to recovery .img file. I know that cm7 NEEDS bl open and custom kernel. Made it for curiosity.

No, U r Wrong Dude........... U can install custom Roms like cm7..etc with CWM (with locked bootloader).. The only thing u cant install with locked bootloader is custom kernels...

I have an x10 mini pro(locked bootloader) with CWM..... Am using custom roms like cm7 and i have installed several Roms via CWM..

SO all we need Now is a CWM compatible ROM ;)

this works on the Xperia play android 2.3.4?

Search in xperia play Forum ;) if its not there its worth Trying....bcz it works on all 2.3 SE phones.....SO give it a Try.. If its not compatible,, Dont worry the phone will boot but u cant enter into CWM.... SO Give it a TRY ;) USE THE "cmd" which is for ARC/Neo/Neo V ....... Not the other one ;)

    when i want to go into recovery mode! It gets stuck in Sony Logo!

    I'm pretty sure you're doing some mistake in installing as I was able to use it perfectly when I was on stock ICS(I now moved to MIUIv4)....do one thing try once again with script method because I mostly used to install with it....before connecting your phone with computer make sure u've:
    (1) installed adb drivers for ur device using Android SDK
    (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING" from (Menu\Settings\Developer Options\Development)
    (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES" from (Menu\Settings\Security)
    (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
    (5) connect USB cable to PHONE in MTP mode and then connect to PC
    (6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device

    if unluckily above method don't work then you need to have do it manually by copy-pasting files using any file manager with root permission I use ES file explorer....from options mount root as writable....then copy "chargemon1" "chargemon2" "cwm-rec" "recovery.tar" in /system/bin and "su" in /system/xbin and change ALL file permission to 755 like screenshot given on first page.....

    Hope now you'll be able to install....

    It gets deleted after flashing the stock .ftf file, how to install CWM permanently?

    If you are using stock firmware then you don't have cwm,root by default.
    So you have to root your device first then you have to install Cwm on your device. Because root permission is needed for installing cwm. This is the step by step method.

    For rooting stock firmware, refer below the links

    For installing cwm permanently, refer below the link
