After successfully porting Carliv Touch CWM for Xperia C we couldn’t just stop the development for Xperia C there itself. So we again tested and ported TWRP for Xperia C or TWRP Recovery for Xperia C. The important thing is that – TWRP is far better than other recoveries as it has much more functions than other recoveries.
Credits : Scripts created by : michfood,javuum and yuweng from XDA; TWRP for Xperia C is ported by Santosh and Prashanth (XDA members and our well wishers) and successfully tested by Informationlord.com’s admin : Somesh Chaudhary on our Xperia C.

Hi, my C2305 can not get into fastboot mode, it is stuck on SONY logo, it can enter flash mode but non of the flashing tools could finish the process, Sony Flash Tool, WMShua or PC Companion, all of them return errors while trying to install the rom or repair the device, i guess the internal memory needs re-partitioning, but the problem is I can not access to fastboot mode, and device is not recognized by ADB unless i go to Sideload option.
any ideas about what can i do in this case? or if I can use any external devices to fix the issue, like Riff Box or something?
If it is simply bootloop, then you can easily fix this issues for this, just press the RESET button and as soon as the device gets off and is being restarted, then suddenly tap on VOLUME DOWN button by plugging in the USB so that your phone enters into Fastboot mode! Hope this helps!
Plz yaar mere k baseband version harab hai Plz kya karo
Bro, all you need is S1 Boot Version must be same! And rest you can follow the same procedure!
is this recovery works on 2.14.J.2.16 S1 BOOT VERSION?
is this works on x.x.x.x.16 boot version like the caliv recovery
make sure that you have the correct bootversion! Before proceeding as described in the article!
Very Great work my dear buddy
I tested it in the folloqing device:
Model: Xperia C (C2304)
S1 Boot Version : 2.14.J.1.15
Build Number : 16.0.B.2.16
OS Version : 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
But it has a severe bug: It can not neither backup or restore the /system partition, which is where the system is installed, making it useless for backup, restoration and flash of the system partition.
I wish you contacted the developer to tell him about that.
Yea! But the problem is – Development for Xperia C has really come to an end! With locked bootloader and no support from Sony as well!
Hey bro….oky so after I panicked for pressing that button to boot into img…I overcame and did it. Success!!! We’ll I think so…it booted into the twrp screen with the option displayed on some of the pics you show…but my question is…if this is done correct, do I access this screen only when I boot? And will it happen everytime when I boot?
Well! I guess you meant to ask that – Whenever you restart your phone- it will start into TWRP recovery! Well that is not the case! It will only boot into recovery when you press Volume down and power button only!
my phone is totally dead ther is any other option for starting the device instead of going to service center
No other option! U cantry different Key Combitionations so that your phone can be detected by PC or else go to Local Shop!
I updated but…. But phone on black screen now not booting …. Any solution … Pls help asap….
Thats because you flashed the CWM recovery on wrong bootversion!
The flashing process wont move on…its stuck at 0%…does it take some time or something…i have been waiting too long…1 hr to be exact
Somesh Vai, I rooted my xperia c by farmaroot. then by uncle mtk tool I flashed recovery.img. But I forgot to check my boot version. Then I booted my device into recovery mode…. The phone is dead. what should I do?
Go to service centre, the only solution! Sorry for late reply!

CWM is best over TWRP!
my boot version is 0.68 and file is B.2.13 one. So do I still need to flash mentioned ftf. And another question is which recovery is best.
Pure CWM is best! And make sure you have desired bootversion as in the post!
The same is my case my s1 boot version is 2.14.J.0.68 what.to do pls help……
first Update to b.2.16 via offline method! and then proceed!
Bro my s1 boot version is also 2.14.J.0.68
But my software version is 16.0.B.2.16
So should I changer my boot version or not? Totally confused…
Well, WMShau no longer supports Xperia C, as a result you would not be able to change the bootversion!
My Xperia c is perfectly rooted and have s1 boot 2.14.J.2.6 but when I installed mobile uncle tools and installed recovery and when I tried to boot into recovery it shows a dead android with a red warning symbol.I tried both cwm and twerp.both shows the same thing.I followed your steps correctly.pleas help me..

If you now install this recovery then your earlier CWM will go, that’s not the point to worry as you can lateron flash the same if you didnt like this twrp for xperia c 🙂
