    Installing Xperia Z2 Firmware in Xolo Q series mobiles

    Today I am going to show you how you can install Sony Xperia Z2 Firmware on Xolo phone. If you are having XOLO Q700 or Xolo Q700i or Xolo Q800 then you can use the Sony Xperia Z2 Firmware on the same. As per the hardware of Xolo model which are mentioned above the firmware is going to work fine. It will not lag or freeze in between. There are many additional features which you get on your phone by adding this firmware. I am going to give you a detail process about doing the same.

    But remember that this is not a official method. That means it includes rooting stuff and that will void the phone warranty. So it is recommended to go ahead on your own risk. If you are done with installing this firmware you might also not receive any future OTA updates. The firmware brings up Android Kitkat 4.4.2 Os features. After adding this you are going to get Xperia Z2 Home and Themes. You will also get the exact System UI. And default Xperia Z2 Apps like the Albums, Movie Creator, and Music unlimited.

    The firmware will also add Xperia Z2 boot animation and enable Sim Switching feature with Smart gestures. The Surround 3D settings will be available but it won't work well due to lack of hardware support. But you can try using Battery Saving options.


    • Before moving ahead it is recommended that you must backup your entire phone data. Backup everything.
    • Go in settings and tap on application. There you can find Development. Go in that and enable usb debugging.
    • Charge your phone to maximum before moving ahead. Or else you can brick your device.
    • Check once again that you are having exactly the same model that are mentioned above. Do not try to use this firmware on any other model.
    • To move ahead you have to root your device first. If you are not sure whether it is rooted or not then add root checker application on your device and test with that.
    • You will need a windows based pc for the process. Just verify that you had updated the system with latest Xolo usb drivers.
    • Download Sony Xperia Z2 Firmware package.

    Installation Process:

    • Just verify once that you had rooted your phone. If not then root it.
    • Connect the phone to your pc through original usb cable. And then copy the file to the sd card of your phone.
    • Disconnect the phone and now we will boot the device in recovery mode.
    • For that hold the volume up and the power button at the same time after turning the device off.
    • Once done with that you have to select clear cache and factory reset. This is going to wipe out the entire internal storage.
    • Once you are done with that go back on the main screen and using the volume key choose install zip from sd card.
    • Select the Sony Xperia Z2 Firmware package file and wait back until the installation is over.
    • That's it. The device is not updated with the latest Sony Xperia Z2 Firmware.
