    refer to my Arc kernel thread

    [ requirements ]

    • stock SE 4.0.2.A.0.42/.58/.62 FW
    • bootloader unlocked
    • working fastboot

    [ how to install this kernel ]

    1. download the boot.img
    2. save the boot.img in the folder with fastboot binaries (fastboot.exe files)
    3. power down device
    4. start device in fastboot mode
    5. use the following command to flash the boot.img
      fastboot flash boot boot.img
    6. reboot phone and enjoy the kernel ;)

    Incase you are installing this over kernel other than stock, you may run into wifi not working issue... in that case flash the wifi modules for stock kernel via recovery to get it working again...

    2. there are multiple notifications to tell u when to press the entry key:

    [ for modders/themers/others ]

    hey guys here i am attaching a template update.zip which has been tested to work on the recovery provided here... u can add ur stuff to that file and edit the updater-script so that the u can flash ur files via this recovery...
    basically it contains the correct combination of update-binary & mounting syntax...

    this file is NOT required for normal/general users



    Features of my custom touch edition recovery

    base recovery sources are from koush/CyanogenMod/FreeXperia Team... i have added more features to it and my team mate, Napstar, has worked on adding the Touch capabilities...

    [ features ]

    • remapped key layouts for specifically for Xperia PLAY
    • revamped layout for recovery menu (to improve navigation) [renamed few options and changed their order]
    • changed "wipe data/factory reset" option to just "factory reset", and detailed the partitions which will be wiped
    • added reboot options
      • reboot into system
      • reboot into recovery
      • reboot into fastboot mode
    • some modification in "Partition SDCard" section:
      • put up a confirmation to warn the user that this option will wipe sdcard
      • added ability to select filesystem when creating new layout
    • add confirmation to "backup" option in Nandroid menu... it used to keep getting pressed by mistake and start making backups immediately... now it will ask u before starting backup ;)
    • removed tons of "NO"s from some menus...

    [ how to enter recovery ]

    1. when the device is booting the new bootlogo will be shown, keep watching the notification LED
    2. when the LED turns BLUE keep pressing the BACK button
    3. you will now enter my custom recovery

    [ how to navigate in recovery ]

    • the recovery is touch edition so controls are on screen
    • if someone prefers to use hardware buttons the the mapping is as follows:
      • BACK button -- to go BACK in menu
      • HOME button -- to navigate UP in menu
      • MENU button -- to navigate DOWN in menu
      • SEARCH button -- to SELECT menu item
    reserved for later
    Sorry to be dumb dude......can we overclock with this kernel? :confused:

    obviously not...
    i can flash this kernel with clockworkmod?, if yes. How?

    Nope, you would need a dedicated recovery partition which the device lacks.
