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.

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

Devoted Developer I ran into a issue while trying to use & the developer went out of his way to help me use this APP so I could avoid further issues. It's nice to have an APP like this that makes flashing a recovery easy. Philz worked Perfectly, thank you

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
