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.

Soft Bricked phone I really wish this app could have worked. I tried TWRP & I was stuck on boot logo. I tried CWM and the app never recognized download so I could never flash. Very frustrating by the time I figured out how to get my phone working it was to late for a refund. This APP would be great if it worked & did not mess up phone

NO DEV HELP-Cannot do a thing now..NEED REFUND. EDIT: May 2nd 2014 almost 3 months hence..same problem exists. Download recovery image..flash..go to recovery...all 0MB folders.. (PAC ROM, CARBON, AICP, AOKP, liquid rom.all same results on ultra z c6833 togari) Posted on xda message board to developer..no replies. private message PM to developer..no replies. From Feb 2014: I had Kitkat 4.4 custom ROM installed with CWM recovery. I installed this and installed TWRP recovery and flashed it. Now when I go into TWRP I do not see any storage (0 MB) and cannot even see to select the internal storage. All I see are /su /root /etc folders. I cannot even boot back and ask for a refund. Although the biggest thing of concern now is how to get to see the internal storage or even boot back to what I had. (had AICP Kitkat for Xperia Ultra Z) All folders it lists are empty. The only options I saw in the start screen were download the TWRP image and flash the TWRP image (both of which I did and rebooted to get to recovery and now am stuck) EDIT manually fastboot flashed custom kernel with tWRP to see my files and backups..will request refund although way beyond 15 min period (could not get phone to reboot anyway)
