This is a CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.7 Touch Recovery for Xperia Z1



Credits and special thanks to Koush and everyone else involved in Cyanogenmod project!






[ info ]

This recovery is built from CWM Recovery 6.0.4.7 sources and is integrated into stock kernel... I call this an advanced stock kernel with recovery!

the core kernel (zImage) is exactly the same as the one supplied by Sony for that particular firmware... only the ramdisk is changed to add recovery and other features!





[ credits / special thanks ]

  • Koush - for the brilliant work & coding on CWM recovery
  • CyanogenMod and FreeXperia Team (especially jerpelea) for too many things :)
  • ME for creating this for u guys!

    • 4.3
      • 14.2.A.1.136 - v01
    or ROMS BASED ON THAT FIRMWARE



[ features ]

I don't know, if it has something to do with your advanced stock kernel, or if that app has to be updated: I can't install Antutu anymore. PlayStore says, that my device isn't compatible with this version...

Anyway, I'm waiting for your new custom kernel :D

e/ Commando back: The reason was to strong restrictions via XPrivacy - now it works!
