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
  • @alexocean for his awesome job testing almost all FW releases and the discovery of SuperSU causing problems for the installation of this recovery!
  • @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!
  • @Tamirwig and @shoey63 for their excellent job at testing early BETA's (Xperia Z)

Well, enjoy!

Bumping up the topic ... It's in fact the only one which has never been used by users to ask questions yet

It either means all Z owners know where to find the DevDB thread or just don't have any questions... either way: BUMP

I'll ask a question.
If I already installed an incompatible busybox by other means (stericson's installer), will the recovery installer overwrite it with the included compatible busybox?
I don't feel like having to recover from possible problems (if any) arising from an incompatible busybox today, so just asking.

haha

The installer/flashable package will overwrite any incompatible busybox anyway at install/update, but the current version also keeps a safety copy somewhere else and will copy that to /system/xbin as soon as it finds an incompatible version.

Great. I'll be installing later. Thanks for the fast reply and for all your work on our device.

Not a dumb question at all

You need to unpack the installer and open up a terminal. Change to the directory and then do 'sudo ./install.sh' to install.
