    Iam using Sony Xperia Z1 C6903 ver 5.0.2 Lollipop and my phone was not detected by CWM which option should I use

    1. Since your device is not detected, why don't you check on xda

  3. Hey im using lenovo a390 os. ICS. "unsupported device". How can i put that recovery on my device please help tnx

  4. How to get a recovery for a non supported Device ?

  5. The 'Porting Methods' like MTK Droid Tools , Easy One Touch Recovery methods were for MT65XX Series only.

    Those methods donot work on newer MT Series like MT67XX.

    I am not saying there wont be a method for newer MT67XX. There would be ofcorse. There are Custom recoveries for other MT6735 devices. But not for my one yet. Because my device is not so popular.

    I have tried Manual Porting as well where you take a recovery from the same chipset and screen resolution device and copy and replace some specific files and repack recovery.
    I done it. I flashed it. But the phone dont boot it. It reboots back , may be it dont accept it.

    I have asked help on xda-developers as well , but nobody has replied. Over a month has passed.

    Thankfully Yomi Tech , a kind hearted , very hardworking guy has replied. Now i have some hope. That i will get a custom recovery for my phone (Xolo Era 4K, MT6735, 1280x720, LP 5.1) are its specs.

  6. I need cwm for Xperia E4 E2115 help me please :'(
