I have followed the instructions given and made sure i extracted to the right folders. I actually extracted to another folder and carried the files over to system one by one. I can't boot into recovery. Tried both 775 and 755 with all files.

Xrecovery is not an option. Can't get that to work either. Tried different versions and ways to install it. I get the green lights upon installation, boot without recovery and when checking on xrecovery after reboot it shows red lights.

For me, after copying all the necessary files, giving them permission, the CWM wouldn't work. I relized that I hadn't installed superbox. So I installed the application, but that didn't help neither. I tried deleting all the coppied files, launched superbox, it required to install sthing, I did what it required. Then restarted, re-coppied the files. This time CWM worked. Hope this can help you.

Yes, that was the case for me also. I thought i had busybox, but after reinstalling it and reinstalling the cwm-files, it worked.

Thanks

This is ClockworkMod Recovery (v.3.2.0.0) ported to work on X10mini / X10mini pro / X8

Introduction

ClockworkMod Recovery is the default recovery option by the CyanogenMod, it has several additional features over plain old xRecovery and uses Edify exclusively:



Despite the non-support for Amend scripts, it's the future of Recoveries and cooks should get used to this kind of scripting when making their zips.

Update:

CWM 3.2.0.0-r3 introduces two new features that validate and restore the currently installed recovery and it's deps before reboot / shutdown. If the current recovery doesn't appear to be correct, it will prompt for a recovery restore option that at least guarantees that the phone can boot into recovery. This is NOT:

- a way to make any ROM that you installed boot
- an idiot proof mechanism (e.g. if you are prompted and omit restoring, you are on your own)


Features

  • ADB root shell
  • reboot system now
  • apply update from sdcard
  • wipe data / factory reset
  • wipe cache partition
  • install zip from sdcard
  • backup and restore
    • backup (also backs up ext partition and installed apps to sdcard)
    • restore (also restores ext partition and installed apps to sdcard)
    • restore from xRecovery (Use this in case you want to restore backups done with xRecovery)
    • advanced restore
  • mounts and storage
    • mount / unmount /cache
    • mount / unmount /data
    • mount / unmount /sdcard
    • mount / unmount /system
    • mount / unmount /sd-ext
    • mount / unmount /cache
    • format /cache
    • format /data
    • format /sdcard
    • format /system
    • format /sd-ext
    • mount USB storage
  • advanced
    • reboot recovery
    • wipe Dalvik Cache
    • wipe Battery Stats
    • report Error
    • key Test
    • partition SD Card
      • Ext Size (formatting as ext4)
      • Swap Size (Set this to 0)
      • Rest Size is for vfat
    • fix permissions
    • validate recovery
    • restore recovery
  • power off



Usage

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



Requirements

  • Stock 2.1 ROM
  • Busybox from the market
  • Root



Installation

EITHER:
If you have xRecovery: Flash the CWM recovery Amend zip
OR:
If you have a previous version of CWM Recovery: Flash the CWM recovery Edify zip
OR:
If you don't have a recovery installed, using Root explorer: manually extract any of the above CWM recovery zips and copy the contents of the system folder (system/bin and system/xbin) to /system, then give 755 permissions to those files, especially to /system/bin/chargemon, or you'll get bootloop.



Notes to everyone

Do NOT use this recovery if you are not in Stock 2.1 firmware. If you have a custom ROM, your cook should incorporate this to his ROM first



Notes to Devs/Cooks

To incorporate this to your ROM, extend the chargemon file to contain the needed part required in order to boot your ROM, the rest of the files need no changes.
Switch to Edify when giving updates for your ROMs. Search xda and google for that, there are plenty of resources out there. E.g: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=936175
Also use the attached update-binary which is modified and tested to work correctly with this recovery.

Completely stock X10 mini here...so this is a total n00b asking a question...

What are '755' permissions?

I tried the 1st method (xRRecovery)...didn't work.

So Now I copied the files to the /system folder, but I just ticked all the boxes for 'permissions'.

Another n00b question...

How exactly do I get into recovery mode?

Well I've followed every instruction to the letter and my x10 simply will not install this CWM thing or Xrecovery. It's not happening, no booting into anything, just same old 2.1.

I did manage to root the phone, though why in the hell I have to read 150 page threads, download 8 or 9 different applications, and then follow seperate methods of installation with different installers for different roms only to then find that it doesn't work I have no idea.

Guess nobody's smart enough to just make an all in one installer. Oh well, thanks anyway.

You need to update to stock rom 2.1.1.A.0.6 or 2.1.1.C.0.0 before using any custom kernel or rom.

Does this work for x8 too? And what to do when phone is in bootloop?I looked at first chargemon-14,03 K, and second chargemon-646 bytes. Why is the second chargemon(was in the cwm folder with charger-14,03 K, and recovery.tar-2.46 mb) smaller then the first one???????

---------- Post added at 05:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:01 PM ----------

And what is "charger"(size 14,03 K) anyway?

9.THEN go to permissions and check READ,WRITE,EXECUTE
READ EXECUTE
READ EXECUTE
,then press ok.YOU MUST DO THAT TO EVERY COPYED FILE YOU COPYED FROM STEP 8.
