    Installing CyanogenMod 11 Kitkat ROM in Sony Xperia SP

    Today I will show you the process to add Android Kitkat rom in Sony Xperia SP. We are going to install this through CyanogenMod 11. A ready to use rom that can be flash instantly on rooted device. The process is tested and works well on Sony Xperia SP. I am not really sure about any other phone. The first important thing you have to do is root your device. Because without that you cannot install custom recovery in your phone. Custom Recovery help you to flash the rom.

    So if you had done with rooting starting taking backup of your existing rom. Many people face issue after root or after adding custom rom. Some of them are not satisfied with the performance. At that point if you want to restore you need the rom backup. This is a manual process. It will void the phone warranty and there are chances that in future you no longer recovery any more updates. So move ahead on your own risk.

    Sony Xperia XP comes with Sony Xperia SP. Official Kitkat update is not yet provided. The device provide 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Dual Core Processor and 1GB ram which is enough to run the latest Android OS. It has a 4.6-inch TFT HD Capacitive Touch screen. The phone offers 0.3 MP front and 8 MP Primary Camera. Overall it is a good phone for gaming, multimedia and photography. So let's move ahead with adding kitkat on it.


    • The first and most important thing that I had already mentioned is to take your phone rom backup. Do not move ahead unless you have that in your pone. Because you won't be able to restore the phone factory settings back. You can use Nandroid or Titanium Backup Pro for that.
    • You have to root your device and install a custom recovery in the phone. This is again important. Add a root checker app later on to verify that the device is rooted or not.
    • Charge your phone to maximum. Low charging can cause issue with the device. It can brick.
    • Go in Settings > Developer Option and enable Usb Debugging.
    • You will need a SD Card with more than 500MB of free space.
    • You will also need a Windows pc with latest Sony Xperia SP USB drivers.
    • Download Cyanogen Mod 11 Firmware package
    • Download the Google Apps Package

    Installation Process:

    • Connect the device to your pc through original usb cable. Move Cyanogens Mod 11 Firmware package and Download Google Apps Package in the sd card of your device.
    • Now boot your phone in recovery mode. You have to install rom manager app for that. Just add that from Google Pay and then boot the device in recovery mode.
    • From the recovery screen choose Wipe Data/ Factory Reset. And then choose wipe dalvik cache.
    • Once done choose Install Zip from SD Card. Select the Cyanogens Mod 11 Firmware package first. And then choose Google Apps package. The first process will take a few time because we are flashing the rom. Then you can go ahead with the second one. Once done reboot your phone.
