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)
  • @gregbradley for his extensive testing on the Xperia Z1

Well, enjoy!

The origins of this XZDualRecovery package are in the packages done by:
Krabappel2548, Cpasjuste and DooMLoRD
Thank you for your excellent work guys!

Your thanks (and donations) should (also) go out to them, they deserve it!

Hi nut! I'm really amused by your work on this.just a question: It's possible to make an installer in which we could select only one recovery for install? Personally, I don't want to deal with multiples recoveries at time... Thanks for this!

No, not for this round of releases anyway.

XZDR 3.0 will be all about choices and selections... but that release is far, far away.

Need a bit of help troubleshooting an issue, I cannot get my z3c to reboot to recovery? I have updated the app, granted root privs and still no luck? I have had it in recovery and successfully made a back up when I first set up root and recovery.

Does the only remaining known issue apply to you perhaps? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...21&postcount=2

You can also try to reinstall or update to 2.8.1.

Thanks for the reply. You have given me some things to play around with when I get to my computer. I work away from home and lot and can't play around with these things that often or fix issues if something goes wrong
