Hi Somesh, after I’d extracted the downloaded xc_cwm.zip file, it become xc_cwm.exe , hence when I’m trying to do Recovery Update by Mobileuncle Tools and pick one kind of Recovery option, there is no automatically pop up for restart the devise, so I did it manually, but when reboot it stuck on the android lie with triangle red icon screen, not as your screenshoot above. Please advise the correct way after extract the xc_cmw.zip file it’s should be .EXE file or .ISO file.

    Mugi Patriadi - May 5, 2016

    Correction, I mean .img file not .ISO file.

    If Only Sony Logo is coming, then do this : First Press Volume UP and Power Button and when Phone is Power OFf – Insert USB Cable and PRess Volume Down Button and Start Wmshau and flash the ftf! This will solve your problem! Thank U!

      Sorry , but my boot is the s :2.14.j.2.16, it is correct, and while the phone is stuck in the SONY logo , just when I try acceseder in recovery mode , however the phone functions properly … Now I consult I must I change the boot.tft to try to repeat the process .. my phone is a Sony c2304 (dual sim) , you can pass the boot for that model .. but since I’m wrong than we are to c2305 .. am right or I’m wrong … .. I await your comments and apologize .

        Well if you have the correct bootversion, then ofcourse you can Install CWM recovery and thereafter try flashing custom ROms for the same! Which can solve your problem!

Sir, I followed the steps and updated the S1 version to .16 and installed mobile uncle and updated recovery . img. But when i enter to recovery mode phone is showing another recovery mode not the CWM!!! I followed the steps line by line

Reply
    Somesh Chaudhary - July 16, 2015

    Which recovery did you use?

    Reply
      parikhit - July 16, 2015

      CWM, TWRP I tried all. When I try to boot into recovery by pressing vol and power android logo with a red triangle coming. Then I need to press camera button to enter into the recovery mode which is a different recovery interface neither CWM nor TWRP. I only used the files from this website only. One more thing before S1 boot version changed to .16 under memory card it was showing no file found which is same as after S1 boot version changed to .16. In your tutorial after changing the boot version under memory card in service menu it was showing some numbers which is not in my case. I have repeated the whole process couple of times, but no use.

        LOL this is Android Stock Recovery! This shows that you have not followed the tutorial! Memory Card Number need not to do anything with it! Have you Rooted your phone and then installed Mobile Uncle Tools and flashed reovery.img?

          parikhit - July 16, 2015

          Obviously bro its a rooted one. I have flashed the phone with recover img using mobile uncle..
