Neo L recovery mode

Hi All,

Does anyone know how to enter recovery mode on the Xperia Neo L? I would like to know how to do this before commencing the rooting process.

Message to Sony: if you didn't load up the phone with a huge pile of bloatware I don't want I wouldn't need to root the phone, and thus run the risk of bricking it.

Re: Neo L recovery mode

Xperia Neo L have no default recovery mode users can access. You will need to use CWM or similar to do this. For more information about this and gaining root access I refer you to the Android developement sub forum.
