  12. Dear Somesh, i had unzip the CWM.zip & kept the recovery.img in SD. When i open mobileuncle tools & click on Recovery update total 25 nos. search files were showing which is having some Chinese words… which one to select..???

    • I would recommend you to still check the boot version and then proceed! So if all done successfully! Place Recovery.img on Internal Storage and this time you will see recovery.img on Uncle Tools. Just flash it!

  13. Hi I downloaded and placed the recovery.img in my sd card and then when I clicked on recovery.img in MTK tools the screen comes up saying ARE SURE FLASH RECOVERY! when I click OK it goes of and nothing happens please help

  14. Sir, what if I accidentally deleted an app (contacts storage, it takes memory) and I need to reset it, will every steps I do here become useless? or will it stay as it is? I planned to use ODIN (or should I flash stock xperia C ROM?)

    becauseIi deleted that dimwit, I can’t dial to see boot version (I’ve seen it before deleting that apk), so after changing the boot version, i didn’t double check, and decided to proceed. After the back up started , I saw the comment section full of people saying theirs bricked and having a cold sweat… but no problem, the bootversion updated like heaven (i just found that there is “device info” to see the boot version in mobileuncle tools, yea…) and I’ve done until the CMW (my sd card was full last night, and it failed. done it the second time^^)

  15. Im using a different recovery.img already can i use do wat is the procedure? Should i just follow your steps and this recovery will replace the that im usinh?

  16. somesh .. i checked the boot version it is s1 ..16. followed the steps as specified..now only Sony logo is coming..what should I do.? kindly help
