Can someone supply me with a guide to install Clockword Mod or XRecovery (or similar software) to my 10 mini? I have rooted various phones and tablets, added CWM and installed roms on other devices previously, so I didn't expect to have such problems with this handset. I have downloaded the X10 flash tool to my computer, but I can't find a stock rom/firmware to run through it. I have also tried XRecovery, but have not achieved any success with that piece of software either. I have rooted, which means I have Superuser, and I have granted Superuser permissions where necessary. I have been trying to do this for days, when I typically unlock, root and rom a phone within 30 minutes. Why is this phone so difficult to do, and can anyone help me get the required firmware(s) to do the job? Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

download the 2 file flashtools and firmware 2.1.1.A.0.6 (custom rom for x10 mini pro need this version it will not work with SE firmware)

follow the instruction to install the firmware. than root it using the root button -> reboot -> press the "ask root terms" button and in your phone allow root access -> press xRecovery this should install CWM recovery in your phone.
