Because there is no Xperia NEO Section i will post it here.

FreeXperia Team presents ClockworkMod Recovery for Xperia NEO phone.

Download:
http://www.multiupload.com/4GUVJI80Z9

Usage:
1.) Connect phone in fastboot mode.
2.) Open a command prompt and type:
fastboot boot recoveryNeo.img [ENTER]

3.) then wait until you see CWM Recovery.

This recovery is for "hot boot" only. A installable version will follow together with CM7 ROM.

Control:
VOL +/- = Menu Up/Down
Power = Select

Please test and report.

Have fun - Team FreeXperia

I am getting:

C:\Flash>fastboot boot recoveryNeo.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
FAILED (remote: The Device must be rooted first)
finished. total time: 0.002s

My device did have an unlocked bootloader, but I relocked it. My phone is rooted. I've not had any luck unlocking the bootloader again though the SE website.

This is what I get when I try and unlock the bootloader again:

C:\Flash>fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xAC38D....XXXX
...
(bootloader) Unlock phone requested
FAILED (remote: oem unlock failed!)
finished. total time: 0.003s

Any advice?

Reqeuest new unlock key, but this has nothing to do with the recovery! If you have an locked bootloader it is normal that this wont work.

I tried a new unlock key just then. Does not seem to be a way to unlock again, after relocking.

Please ask in another thread (re-lock bootloader thread), i want to have this thread clean about problems / suggestions for the recovery itself!
Thanks.

Regards

after re-unlock bootloader Clockwork recovery works fine :)
P.S. Or re-unlocking or recovery wipe my data = factory data reset :|

Hmm after boot i dont have a lock screen, power menu shows only one option "switch off", meybe reflash help

OK after reflash 3.0.1.A.0.146 (wifi fix) from WotanServer everything looks OK (missing root :)

P.S. How enter into recovery ? Power + Vol down ??

To operate the bootloader has to be unlocked?

If so if we can not enter locked fastboot mode and can not do anything. Is there another option?

Creating recovery worked fine. Wiping caches worked fine. Stock Neo ROM does not automount ext2. Creating ext2 partition in recovery worked, but my phone did not find it on sd card after booting.

That is on 2.3.3 of course which has kernel to support ext2/3/4.

Discovered how this recoveryNeo.img CWM is even more awesome.

I messed around with partitions with Minitool and fdisk. Both caused the sd card to become unmountable, even with fdisk showing info about it as:
c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)

This CWM either restored partition table or did something else, but it fixed what i have yet no idea how to do it manually.
