TWRP is now officially available for the Sony Xperia L smartphone. While the Xperia L is a budget phone, developers have been giving good support for it. Since Sony is not doing much to update their phone but TWRP will allow you to flash third party firmwares to it.
You can now download this touch custom recovery as an image file from the official TWRP website. Installation instructions are given below:
Download the above file. Copy the file to /sdcard/fotakernel.img and run the following commands using terminal emulator or in adb shell:
dd if=/sdcard/fotakernel.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/FOTAKernel
If you happen to be using lk, then boot your device into lk’s fastboot mode and flash using this command:
fastboot flash recovery fotakernel.img
