Exclamation Serious Issue - xrecovery is suddenly clockworkmod

HALP!

My phone just went black, and when i turned it back on after taking battery in and out, xRecovery is gone, and I now have clockworkmod for X10 Mini for some reason! ... i have X8.

I can't reboot through CWM, it says that "ERROR: Current recovery seems bad!"

Also I'm guessing xR-files are different from CWM's, so the backup I had using xR probably won't work. What do? I don't wanna brick this.

Prior to this error i just installed a few apps. A few that I can think of are; Dropbox, Clockr (clock widget) and Screenshot. Last one needed SU-admissions, it may be that.

Please help.

Cheers

Solved!

I took a chance on rebooting, and was able to enter xRecovery and reboot from there.

Next question - where did clockworkmod come from?

Please advice...

Hi,

ClockWorkMod is installed by your custom rom when you flash your phone.

Default Boot into either cwm or xrecovery

If you tap the screen a few times when sony ericsson appears to go to CWM. To go to xrecovery just tap the back button at sony ericsson screen. You can use either.
