Farabi, 28 Sep 2012Lets make it simple here..1.istall flashtool and drivers(neo v,fastboot,flash mode) from flash... moreWell....that's the difference between knowing and trying to explain. You showed that you know.....but even I didn't make out some things from your mini guide. Always remember this, 'When you teach, simply think that the taught know absolutely nothing'. I explained or linked to pages that explains everything. The noobest of the noob can at least learn something from my guide.
For me installing custom is just like this,
1. Flash kernel using command prompt.
2. Restart phone and clear all cache in cwm.
3.Flash rom zip from SD card.
4. Flash gaaps.
And who wants to get rooted in officials ics or like gB even in .62 to use root apps
do the same as the steps till the cm comes then.
2.install root xperia.zip (get it from xda) instead of cm 10 145mb file..now wait for rebooting
3.Vaiola!!!u r rooted in secs!....:D..enjoy!

Read in reverse order.... That is my previous post is the first part, then comes the second part.......the last part is the one I posted first. This way you guys will have less problem stitching the lines together as this opinions section of gsmarena follows the latest-post-comes-first rule...
Here you go guys....the guide to making your phone awesome, as I promised.
Let me first clear out some facts here. Rooting, bootloader unlocking,
kernel installation, rom flashing are things that manufactures (eg:
Sony) doesn't want their customers to try. Its simply because the
above things has the potential to totally ruin your phone and render
it useless IF done in any wrong manner. They look at us as threats
because their is a certain cost in repairing dead or bricked phones.
And if we are given the freedom to do stuffs like above 6 out of 10
guys will make there phone dead. So.....they simply put the rule 'Try
these at your own risk.....anythings happens.....you are on your
own.....NO WARRANTY!!!' So people who are afraid of no-warranty policy
.....stay clear of what's coming next.
But here is another fact. A phone that goes bad by rooting or
installing roms CAN be repaired. Of course by yourself. So, before
beginning ANYTHING....lets learn to repair your phone. Cause once you
know you have a way back .....you gain 'confidence' in yourself to go
HOW TO FLASH ORIGINAL ROM: Flashing a original Sony rom reverts back a
phone to the same state when you bought it first. Its the ONLY safe
and easy way to repair a dead phone. You will need a PC (duh!!!) and
some software to help you flash. That software's name is FlashTool.
Below I will give the link to this software and the links to the
original Sony roms. One is gingerbread ....the other ICS. Both isn't
the latest of their respective builds, instead they are the ones that
can be easily rooted.
Flashtool : http://androxyde.github.com/
ICS : http://www.4shared.com/rar/N-4...d_Centr.html
Process of flashing: http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/35239
Note: If you install any custom rom you don't have to root. Its
already pre rooted. As for installing CWM, the kernel has it inbuilt.
In case you are having trouble understanding these words (cwm, kernel
etc), visit this link and go through it.
Those who want to retain warranty and simply root and install cwm, the
above link has all the details. Rooting voids warranty too but since a
phone can be 'unrooted', so warranty can be retained. Best way is to
flash a original sony rom to unroot your phone. Unlocking bootloader
is a irreversible process.....once you do it.... Your warranty is gone
for good. Bootloader unlocking is a must to install custom rom and
Note: What is warranty anyway? Its just a backup system IF your phone
has any manufacturing defect or is rendered useless by going dead. If
you are using your phone for a month or two already, that means that
it has no manufacturing defect. As for going dead, I already mentioned
the method above to revive your phone. So unless you break your phone
(which in fact warranty doesn't cover) you are better off without
warranty and a rom that's 10 times better than original Sony.
OKAY!!! Now lets begin the part where 'being awesome' comes......That
is HOW to unlock bootloader, flash kernel and then flash a custom rom.
Above link has the best description on how to unlock.
Note: Unlocking bootloader may or may not reset your phone. So better
make your backup (contacts, messages etc).
CWM RECOVERY: This the main thing that does all the rom installation
(flashing). Good thing is that it is in the phone. So you can flash
roms any time you want (provided you have the rom zip file in your SD
KERNEL: This thing binds the software to the hardware. Usually all
custom roms has their own custom kernel. So unless the roms in your SD
card are based on the same kernel, you better not try to switch roms
on the fly. Installing kernels need PC. Kernels are of 'boot.img'
type. Usually 5-10mb.
ROM: Roms are in zip form. Usually 150mb approx size.
In this guide I will teach you how to flash the CyanogenMod 10 custom
rom. In case you want to use anything different, simply replace the
respective files with your rom. Process is same for all....so
depending on what file you use...you will end up with a different rom.
STEPS: After unlocking bootloader you have to download the custom roms
and kernels. The cyanogenmod 10 is based on Android JellyBean, the
latest and the best out there. Its way better than ICS and definitely
more featured than GB.... The links to the rom zip file (has the
boot.img file inside the zip itself.....simply extract this out and
keep it separately ....DON'T extract everything ....just the kernel)
and the xda thread of the rom are as follows,

Keep following this thread for new updates or discussions on bug
fixes. The last page has the latest comments.
Note: Although there is another update to the rom version I linked to
above, its not stable. So stay away from it. The one i gave is
fxp138....latest is fxp139. Fxp is a team of developers that ports
cyanogenmod roms to xperia phones like Neo, Neo v, ray, etc....
