    6. Once the white sony ericsson logo pop up, press back button several times until you go into the xrecovery (alternative for mini pro is to slide out and in keyboard a few times until screen went into xrecovery).
      then choose your backup system.

    1. yes the battery is inbuild, but if you take a look carefully at the top of your battery, you can see the cable connector from the battery to the machine, use a thick stick to push the white connector, then you handphone will die. visit this blog http://batteriax10mini.myblog.it/, at the last picture, that what i mean. keep moving :D.
