    Same problem.

    It’s becouse this CWM is made for Xperia T (a.k.a. mint), and our phone is Xperia V (a.k.a. Tsubasa).

    It’s the most helpfull post for this in all the internet, except for this little detail.

    I’ve searched everywhere also, and I couldn’t find a single recovery made for us 🙁

    • @y0y4y0:disqus thank you for informing me about this, I’ll look into this and find a recovery ASAP. Stay connected.

  • @markdelarosa:disqus flash gordon exe? Can you please elaborate what you’re trying to say actually? so that i can help you accordingly.

  • @markdelarosa:disqus i haven’t done a guide on that yet, but there will be one on our site in a day or two. Stay connected.

  • @sheikhaadi:disqus flash stock firmware on your device to recovery it.

  • Abhishek
