How to enter recovery mode

  • Power + Vol+

Unlocking

Note There is no Fusée Gelée for the T20 available, so unlocking is impossible. Might change in the future. There is also no u-boot port for the nbx03

Sony does not seem to have provided a way to enter APX using a key combination, so we have to use an alternative method. Use the following project for rooting and entering APX mode: https://gitlab.com/eloydegen/apxploit
