Recovery Manager for Xperia™

Recovery Manager for Xperia™


Replace the boring CWM with TWRP or PhilzTouch Recovery on your Xperia.

Almost all custom kernels and ROMs have the "extract_elf_ramdisk" method embedded in them which allows flashing a recovery.img to the FOTAKernel partition and using this recovery instead of the recovery that comes inside the kernel.
Since most CM/AOKP/PA ROMs come with CWM in the default kernel, it is really helpful in having TWRP or Philz-Touch Recovery on the FOTAKernel.
Another big advantage is, even if the recovery inside the kernel is broken, The FOTAKernel recovery will continue to work.

Tops! Works as advertised... tho I did download the latest TWRP myself which was newer than the one the app supplied... changed its name and dropped it in the Apps folder and flashed! Worked a treat... heh heh.

Buggy but it worked. Downloaded TWRP, and the app crashed. Then I restarted the app, and it flashed correctly.
