Special Thanks:
  • @DooMLoRD for all his excellent work on our much loved Sony phones!
  • The Team Win developers for TWRP
  • The ClockWorkMod developers for CWM

  • @RoberM for testing
  • @surdu_petru for testing and handy pointers
  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.
  • @lancebukkake for finding the TWRP 'fix' to use exFAT formatted sdcards!
  • @delewer for the final fix for TWRP and its use of exFAT formatted sdcards
  • @DevShaft for some code help on the windows installer (the menu!)
  • @Androxyde again, but now for his bash code/script suggestions... oh boy this guy is a genius! :highfive:
  • @Tamirwig and @shoey63 for their excellent job at testing early BETA's (Xperia Z)

Can I only boot the recovery via the app and quit that delay at boot?

Thanks for all Nut, you working hard for us, thanks.

Yes, how i can do that ?

You are aware that you will not be able to enter recovery when or if you ever end up in a bootloop?

You actually can but it requires an sdcard1 which holds the xzdualrecovery folder... It's possible to enter recovery by creating a file called 'boot' there, but it does make this way out of a bootloop require a pc and a sd cardreader.

Hi mate, just few things to ask

Code:
[size=4][b][color=Blue]When installing custom ROMs:[/color][/b][/size]
Be sure to flash Z1-lockeddualrecovery[I][VERSION][/I]-BETA.flashable.zip from [url]http://nut.xperia-files.com[/url] after installing the ROM and before you reboot, this way you will not lose recovery!

Is that mean if I flash this recovery over beta 2.7.73 I'll have to reflash older recovery to be able to flash ROM?

I guess not - but just want to be sure...

Sorry I just checked OP again and now I get it.
That's for flashing new kernel or ROM with a kernel - to be sure recovery will stay or if recovery isn't already in kernel.

BTW - thanks again for awesome work...

WOW. Finally I got my Z1 and I rooted it in like 30 minutes or less

-Phone came with the .534, this recovery worked like a charm because I dind't have to use vroot. I just installed the SuperSU .zip and voila! Root in 3 minutes

-Then I made a backup of my TA

-Flashed the .136 to unlock the bootloader

-After unlocking the bootloader I installed the doomkernel and as I did before, installed the SuperSU .zip

-SuperSU was fully working, so I reinstalled the original kernel (with all wipes just to be sure) and restored my TA partition.

Do you have full root? I didn't see you saying that installed XZDualRecovery (which have disable RIC script to enable full root).
