  • @RoberM for testing
  • @surdu_petru for testing and handy pointers
  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.

  • @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)

Not working
When i tried installing it don't install even though the bat file says it's successfully installed. i used an sgp621 pre-rooted rom created with PRF creator. Now I flashed it and I lost recovery. Any idea how would this work on stock kernel with root permissions?

What is the FW number of the ROM you tried to install it on?

Please try again and hand me the output of the entire CMD screen.

I tried recreating the PRF (i mistakenly put the installer zip instead of flashable zip). However, i would just like to report that if i use the Windows installer zip, it just won't work though i have proper root and on stock kernel/ROM. SGP621_23.0.1.A.0.167 is the firmware. Now i made it worked by creating a flashable rom with your dual recovery on it.

Problem solved - I needed to update to the advanced kernel first.

There is a problem with the TWRP recovery - it is displaying in landscape mode while the device is booting in portrait one. So it doesn't fit the screen and it is not really functional so. Fix it please if possible. Thanks.

P.S. replaced with the file from Z3 phone and it works, but not in fullscreen.

Hi, I asked this already in the q&a but I'm not sure if anyone is keeping an eye on that section so please forgive me for asking in the main thread again:
Can anybody tell me if this recovery will work with cm12?
Thanks.
