When device developers are faced with a locked and unlocked scenario, things can get interesting. While many devices are either unlockable or not, there are some situations where only some devices are unlockable. Or, in the case of some Verizon devices, it started out unlockable and then Verizon shut it down. In these cases, developers have to find interesting ways to provide the same things to locked and unlocked devices. Now, Sony Xperia T owners who have locked bootloaders, but still have root, can have ClockworkMod Recovery.
XDA Senior Member Sharaz22 released the popular recovery for the Xperia T. For those who have unlocked bootloaders, this was likely a much easier process. However, for those who are stuck with permanently locked devices, you can now get in on the action. Of course, you’ll still need root. As newer firmwares haven’t been rooted yet, users will have to wait for root before they can proceed.
The installation process should be pretty easy. Just root your Xperia T, download the zip, and flash it in stock recovery. There is also a root zip you can download and install, should you need it. The only downside is that AOSP-based ROMs still won’t work because of the locked bootloader. However, if you want to flash a different stock ROMs, this is definitely what you’re looking for.
