If i make my Sony Xperia P with unofficial 4.4.2 KitKat android will it lagg a lot or something like that? -Thanks.
I am not sure you are doing things right. You cannot install SU (super user) before ADB drivers.
First make sure that you have 'USB debugging' and 'Allow mock location' enabled in Developer section of Settings.
Then verify that you have installed all proper drivers on your computer.
After that try Doomlord's or Bin4ry rooting solution (later is a bit older but might also work).
If that doesn't help, try with different computer (also disable any antivirus software on PC during the procedure).
I successfully rooted my Xperia P on ICS with bin4ry method, but on JB that didn't work for me, but Doomlord's method worked fine.
Also, I would strongly advise you to backup your data (contacts etc.) and Reformat your phone (System Repair through SonyUpdateSrrvice or PCCompanion, or flashing latest JB stock firmware through Flashtool) before rooting and installing CWM because this is the safest way to have troublefree Honami Moonwalked custom ROM.
hi iv been having this phone for about a year. im fed up with this piece of S**t sofware n buggy updates from sony. i recently heard about one of the best roms for XP, the honami moonwalker n ever since been trying in vain to root my device.
It seems rooting JB is not easy and iv even tried Doomlord's root kit but all i get are errors and wont complete the rooting process. Im not even able to install su binary files, let alone the adb drivers for the phone and its frustrating! On top of that i got a Win8 pc and its completely different.
Anyone got a solution? maxym? i just want to get a proper and full performance of the XP. Im tired of all the bugs and lags and just want to get rid of this stock rom.
Many thanks in advance.
There is no real solution for this problem. I usually activate 2G instead of 3G, and STAMINA whenever possible (almost 10h of intensive use)
I have also bought an external battery of 5600 mAh. It works fine.
Mahesh, 13 Feb 2014Battery of xperia p is contineously disscharge,4 to 5 times needs to be charge in day.Is there... moreBattery cannot be upgraded (if by upgrade you think of installing higher capacity battery) because of limited space inside Xperia P, but you can replace existing battery (if you are sure it's faulty) with new one, in Sony Repair Center, or by yourself if you have enough confidence.
But before that, I suggest you to do System Repair with fresh OS install, proper battery charge cycle, and uninstallation of all programs you installed from PlayStore, to check if your battery is really faulty.
If you have incorrectly calibrated battery, with all communications constantly on (WiFi, 3G, BT, NFC) and lots of installed programs that work in background, your battery might be OK, but your phone is never going to DeepSleep, and is drained in couple of hours.
great device..... only problem is the battery only 1305 mah only...... oterwise brilliant

Anonymous, 09 Feb 2014worst phone ever!!!!! why sony cannot update it's phone without tethering to a computer? why w... moreIf you want OTA Updates so badly why don't you go buy Apple iPhone and stop whining here?! :-)
Sony is far from ideal company (like any other) but glitchy OTA Update is far from making it 'worst company'.
And beside, Update is a feature that you might used only for 4-5 times in these three years Xperia P exist, I am sure there are features you use much much more then this one you complaining about.
angel beauty, 09 Feb 2014is there(xperia p) a function of a scratch resistant glass? anyone tried it? Xperia P have scratch resistant glass (Gorilla or Dragontrail) according to the info one of the gsmarena commenter received from Sony, but they are not advertising it so obviously. Dunno why, don't ask me.
Anyway, on top of the glass there is shutter-proof foil protection (hard surface materials are known for their rigidity and are prone to shattering when smashed) which is made of plastic (after all, it's called foil), and if you try to scratch your Xperia P glass you will surely damage the foil, although the glass itself might not be scratched.
Beware, 'scratch resistant' doesn't mean 'scratch proof', and eventually you might see some scratches on the screen of any smartphone, it's not there to be tested, but to protect your screen from everyday abuse (normal glass would develop too many scratches in short time).
DJ vibes, 10 Feb 2014What does rooting the phone means?Rooting is name of the procedure that gives you full access to your smartphone resources (equivalent of Administrator rights on Linux or Windows OS). Term "rooting" came from term 'root' which designate 'Administrator' on Linux OS.
Usually all smartphones comes with standard 'user' rights, because of two important things; first it prevents user to accidentally mess up system files (and render phone unusable), and second, it prevents malicious programs to alter system data and expand to other devices.
But for an advanced user who knows what he is doing, and is willing to accept the risk (which is minimal compared to benefits), 'rooting' gives possibility to install system programs like firewalls, CPU-control etc., and also to install non-factory ROM (custom ROM-s 'cooked' by enthusiasts) getting better performance or new functionality from your smartphone.
