{Recovery} FreeXperia - Xperia S [12.04.2012]

Team FreeXperia would like to present you the very first full working recovery system for the Xperia S aka Nozomi aka LT26!

Notice:
For unlocked bootloaders only!!

Also this is ONLY RECOVERY for now! You cannot boot the actual system with it!
We will create a recovery for stock booting later! For now enjoy this.

Howto:

2.) Flash it to phone with command:

Code:
fastboot flash boot recovery-nozomi.img

After that your phone will now always boot into recovery!

To boot again normal Rom you have to flash the stock Sony kernel.sin (can be found in ANY Rom ftf, just extract ftf as zipfile)

Reflash stock Rom:

Code:
fastboot flash boot kernel.sin

This Recovery is ported to our device by Defer, Jerpelea and Bin4ry.

Have fun with it

Regards

The same question again: what did you do to work around the bootloader bug? Also, is it possible to fastboot boot it?

Pretty please? :3
I'm quite new to the Android scene, but good with embedded Linux, so really interested in the magic behind this

Due to how the bootloader is implemented, at the moment you can't hotboot with the recovery image or any unsigned kernel.

Sadly this is not implemented in Sonys bootloader :(
