RecoverX: Install CWM ClockworkMod Recovery on Your Xperia Device Pretty Easily!

The procedure to install ClockworkMod recovery – which is a custom recovery used to install custom ROMs – on Xperia devices just got a lot easier and simpler thanks to RecoverX, a graphical user interface-based tool developed by XDA Senior Member LEDelete that lets you install ClockworkMod recovery on almost any Xperia device with a few simple clicks of the mouse.

Using Recover X is quite simple. As long as your device is rooted and is running on a stock Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, you simply need to connect it to the computer, start up RecoverX, choose the version of recovery you want to install, grant it superuser access on the phone, and RecoverX does everything else automatically. What’s even better is that you don’t need to unlock the bootloader on your phone for this (except for newer devices such as Xperia S, P, U which do need an unlocked bootloader).

RecoverX supports the following devices at this moment:

  • Xperia Active
  • Xperia Live with Walkman
  • Xperia Mini
  • Xperia Mini Pro
  • Xperia Arc
  • Xperia Arc S
  • Xperia Neo
  • Xperia Neo V
  • Xperia Play
  • Xperia Pro
  • Xperia Ray
  • Xperia X8
  • Xperia X10 Mini
  • Xperia X10 Mini Pro
  • Xperia S (beta)
  • Xperia U (beta) (unlocked bootloader)
  • Xperia P (beta) (unlocked bootloader)
  • Xperia Sola (beta) (unlocked bootloader)

RecoverX is surely a must-have tool for installing ClockworkMod recovery on Xperia devices specially because it provides support for almost every device in a single program. Head over to the official development page on XDA for more details on RecoverX and to download and try it out.
