Noone will deny that Xperia Z is the best smartphone available in the market and it is becoming even better because of the involvement of experienced developers in its development. Firstly DoomLord developed a Custom Kernel and Rooting method for it, then came CM10.1 By FXP and now CWM and TWRP Recovery are also available for it and the best thing about it is that it will work with Locked Bootloaders. So there is no problem of unlocking bootloaders and all the people would be able to use this as some of the people's Xperia Z's bootloaders cannot be unlocked. CWM AND TWRP are developed by two members on XDA namely krabappel2548 and Cpasjuste . It will not be wrong to say that this device is receiving updates very fastly as compared to the other devices. It is sure that this device will leave other devices far behind in developement.


ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM):

ClockworkMod, abbreviated as CWM, is a popular custom recovery for Android phones and tablets developed by Koushik Dutta (Koush), a well-known name in the Android dev community. ClockworkMod recovery allows you to perform several advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on your Android device that aren’t possible with the stock recovery, and is one of the most common ways used to gain root access, back up device data, install custom ROMs, kernels, themes & mods, and more.

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP):

Team Win Recovery Project 2.4, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features.  It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash.  The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able.  You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.


  • Locked bootloader
  • Root.( If you have not root your device, then root it using this method)
  • Windows pc with adb drivers


  • Download The CWM Package here and TWRP package from here
  • Extract it to your pc
  • Run the script(install.bat) to install the recovery
  • Enjoy it!


  • Press volume up or down when green LED is on while booting

Error with creating file for faster backup?
This isn't a problem, it always gives an error if the file already exists, so it means you have the file already
