Suggested March 2024 Sony Xperia Sp Cm13 Brings Marshmallow Update Unofficially

Sony Xperia SP won’t get a Marshmallow update from the company now that it is pretty old to receive the Android 6.0. And that’s why you will have to rely on custom ROMs as such to get the update unofficially. This is where CM13 ROM comes into play, a popular ROM that’s raining Marshmallow updates on many devices these days.

Recently we covered CM13 for Xperia SP, Moto E 1st Gen, and a very old device in Galaxy Tab 7.7. It’s one super cool thing about Android that you can still receive major updates as custom ROMs when OEM has long abandoned the device.

If you own an Xperia SP and want to install Marshmallow update, then CM13 remains your best choice right now. The ROM is pretty good, too. It’s got some bugs as it’s under development right now, but you could find it good enough for trying out 6.0 update.

This ROM requires that your device has bootloader unlocked, which is our step 1 below too. Also, you are going to need a custom recovery like TWRP, which is out step 2 below.

Note: Check the source page here (by Mrcl1450) for details and download link of latest release. As the ROM is under heavy development and new features are added and bugs ironed out, we recommend you check out the details to know current bugs and become fully aware of what’s working and what’snot, before installing the ROM.

Supported devices

Sony Xperia SP, codename huashan

Don’t try this on any device whose codename is not same as the one specified above.

→ Use the Droid Info app to determine the codename of your device. If it is exactly the one specified above, then it should be compatible with the 6.0 custom ROM we have here.

Warning!

Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup!

Backup important files stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have backup of all your important files.

How to Install

Step 1. Make sure that you have unlocked bootloader of your Xperia SP. If not, then do that first.

Step 2. Also make sure that you have installed a custom recovery like TWRP on your device. TWRP recovery is required to be able to install CM13 ROM.

Step 3. Download the CM13 ROM and gapps file from above.

Step 2. Connect your device to PC and transfer the ROM and gapps file to it. Disconnect the device then. Remember the location of the files.

Step 3. Boot your Xperia SP into recovery mode. If you are rooted, you can use Quick Boot app from play store. To manually boot into recovery mode, do this:

Power off the device. Wait for 4-5 seconds after screen goes off.

Now, power on the device using power button and then be sure to press the volume up or down key repeatedly once you see LED light blinking on the device.

You will enter recovery mode soon, and should see TWRP recovery. If you see android with exclamation mark, or 3e recovery, then you need to install TWRP recovery for this.

Step 4. [Optional] Once in TWRP, create a backup of your device. Tap on Backup, and then select all the partitions for back. Now do the swipe action at bottom to start creating a backup for emergency cases. This backup is really a lifesaver!

Step 6. Now, install the ROM file. On TWRP’s homescreen, tap on Install, and then locate the ROM file and tap on it. Then do the Swipe action at bottom to begin flashing the update.

Step 7. Tap on Home button to go back. Now, install the Gapps the same way you installed Marshmallow ROM on your Xperia SP.

Step 8. When it’s done, tap on Reboot system button to restart the device.

That’s it.

Download Galaxy Nexus Marshmallow Update: Cm13 And Other Roms

Maguro (and toro, and toroplus) users enjoy! It’s the Marshmallow update for your Galaxy Nexus. Well, the Galaxy Nexus is our one of the most favorite devices to date, along with the like of Galaxy S and Galaxy S2, HTC One X and One M7, and the like. This is one of those devices that made you totally believe that without using this device, your mobile phone experience is incomplete (at that moment).

Even though a Nexus device, the Galaxy Nexus no longer receives direct updates from Google because of obvious and legit reason of its old age. Even its successor Nexus 4 is not getting Marshmallow update officially, but we also have the Nexus 4 Android 6.0 update covered for you (also here and here).

Thanks to awesome developer community around, Galaxy Nexus has some incredible Marshmallow custom ROMs available for it, that bring the latest update from Google to the device unofficially, yet pretty stable form.

Read: Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a Marsmallow Update

Strangely enough, the Galaxy Nexus CM13 ROM isn’t available yet but it’s not a sad situation because there are some other cool ROMs, packed with more features than even CM13, are available, as well as simple AOSP ROM.

With the Galaxy Nexus Marshmallow update, you get to experience the famous Doze mode in the latest update, that puts device to deep sleep by restricting the data and CPU to apps at times when you are not using your device, and allows only limited usage at fair intervals to preserve on battery. Apps that aren’t used by you so often are also hibernated in Marshmallow, which makes more free RAM available on the device. Here’s more on Doze mode.

Apart from that, you also get robust app control options in Galaxy Nexus Android 6.0 update. You can control which app can use what permissions, and also find out how much memory and data an app is using.

Required? You have to use a custom recovery like TWRP and CWM to be able to install a custom ROM. Look at the link at bottom for more help on this.

Marshmallow doesn’t any particular minimum system requirements, but given that it features under-the-hood improvements and isn’t resource heavy than Lollipop, the 1GB RAM recommendation for Lollipop Google gave earlier serves well for Marshmallow too.

With that in mind, the Galaxy Nexus is capable of running Marshmallow builds easily, especially these are AOSP based light builds than OEM-based heavy builds that feature custom skins. Good luck! Do feedback us on how well you like these Galaxy Nexus Marshmallow ROMs.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Review

Our Verdict

A 4K smartphone might seem like something you want but you really don’t need it and it’s an expensive card to play in order to trump your mates. The device is also big, uncomfortable and brash. Hardware is the same as the regular Z5 so it really comes down to the screen, which doesn’t even display 4K much of the time. We strongly recommend steering clear of the Premium which is this year’s most unnecessary phone and sticking to the regular Z5 or one its alternatives.

One of the surprise announcements of IFA 2024, back in September, was Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium which is the first 4K smartphone to make the light of day. After some proper time with the new phone, here’s our full and in-depth Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review.

Also see: Best Black Friday Phone Deals

Also announced at IFA 2024 by Sony was the Sony Xperia Z5 and the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact. Sony faces tough competition in the smartphone market and the unique selling point of the Premium is something which it helps will differentiate it from rivals such as Apple and Samsung.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: Price and competition

As you might expect from the world’s first 4K phone, the price of the Xperia Z5 Premium lives up to its name. Sony’s official price for the handset is a whopping £629. This makes it one of the most expensive phones on the market along with the iPhone 6S Plus which costs up to £789 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ which can set you back up to £719 – the Z5 Premium doesn’t even include headphones either.

You’re better off buying the Xperia Z5 Premium elsewhere as Clove is selling it for £600 with free accessories while Amazon has it for a fairly reasonable £576.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: Design and build

This is the most recognisable of the Z5 range with since it’s the largest of the three and, oh yeah, it’s shiny mirrored finish. The device will be available in Chrome, Gold and Black options and we took a look at the very bling Chrome option. Also see: Best MiFi 2024.

It might make the device look fancy and you can check your makeup or do your hair my looking in the back, but you’ll be forever polishing it to get rid of fingerprint marks and smudges which appear the first time you pick it up.

Things go from gleaming to grubby in a matter of seconds so we prefer the frosted glass of the other Z5 phones.

If you can bear owning a phone this shiny then the Z5 Premium has the same design features as its smaller counterparts. This means its waterproof with only a flap to cover the slot which houses the SIM-card and Micro-SD card slot.

It also means the Z5 has a new power button so the iconic round one is gone and has been replaced with a flat rectangle. Sounds a bit boring but it’s because it now has a fingerprint scanner built-in. We’ve tried it out and it’s fast, accurate and is placed on the phone better than any other we’ve seen exactly where your thumb naturally lies.

At 7.8mm, the Premium is a little thicker than the regular Xperia Z5 but it’s not that which we’re worried about. The phone weighs 180g which is pretty colossal and more than other phones with the same screen size – even the brick-like OnePlus 2 is lighter at 175g so this is a serious drawback of the Z5 Premium.

We can understand why Sony has kept the same rectangular shape for the Premium to match the other Z5 phones, but at this size it makes for a rather uncomfortable and unwieldy experience.

A smaller problem is that the volume rocker is situated below the power button which makes it pretty awkward to use. That’s the same as previous Xperia handsets but it’s lower down this time around.

As usual, one of the key selling points is that the Z5 Premium is dust- and waterproof to an IP68 rating which is great to see. There is only one flap, too, making life a lot easier.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: All about the 4K screen and content

Let’s jump straight into the most exciting section of the Xperia Z5 Premium’s spec sheet which is that 4K screen. Sony has skipped Quad HD entirely and is the first manufacturer to bring us a resolution on a phone which most people don’t even have on their TV or computer monitor yet.

That’s right, the Xperia Z5 Premium offers a 2160×3840 resolution on a 5.5in, meaning a jaw dropping pixel density of 806ppi. That beats the Galaxy S6 by a long way which has touts 577ppi.

Sure this phone has some serious top trump credentials in this department and people at the pub might not even believe that it’s Ultra HD but the numbers on the spec sheet make up a very small part of the full picture here.

In comparison with the regular Xperia Z5, the premium model doesn’t have as much brightness available and colours are slightly less punchy – the latter is more a personal thing and I actually prefer it a bit more laid back.

There’s a good reason for this and you can probably guess what it is. Driving all those pixels 100 percent of time would result in a serious dip in both performance and battery life. The other reason is that Android 5.1 Lollipop doesn’t support 4K resolution.

The latest, 6.0 Marshmallow, does and an update is coming but even then it’s designed for up to 640ppi which Google describes as ‘extra-extra-extra-high density’ which is a fair way off the Premium’s 806ppi. When the update does arrive, we doubt Sony will simply remove the downscaling.

So when exactly do you get 4K on the only 4K phone around? Well not often; you need to open Sony’s own Album, and Video apps which will display content in the full resolution. This means you’re most likely to see 4K when viewing photos and videos you’ve captured with the phone. Third party services such as Netflix and YouTube have 4K content but this isn’t what you’ll get on the phone.

Our conclusion on the 4K screen of the Xperia Z5 Premium is that thing can look great on it with excellent amounts of detail. However, it’s extremely limited and really not that different compared to Quad HD phones.

At the moment, 4K on a phone is simply a mismatch and we think the need to downscale proves this.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: Other hardware and specs

So is there anything else other than the 4K screen to tempt you to buy the Premium model over the other Z5 phones on the hardware side?

Well not really, the Xperia Z5 Premium also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage and a Micro-SD card slot for adding up to 200GB more which is the same line-up as the regular Z5 – the Compact is only different with 2GB of RAM.

As you can see below the phone benchmarked almost identical numbers to the regular Z5 due to the downscaling of the resolution. We’ve found the phone to be smooth and responsive in use.

The battery is larger, since there’s more space for it, but battery life is similar to the Z5. The 3430mAh capacity provided five hours and 49 minutes with a score of 3491 in our Geekbench 3 test. Not a bad result but still two or three hours behind the leaders.

As you would expect from a phone which costs over £600, you get a lot of the latest tech on-board. The Z5 Premium features dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX, NFC, GPS and support for 4G LTE networks.

Sony has opted against a Type-C reversible USB port for now but that’s not the end of the world at the moment. The Micro-USB port is at least waterproof without a flap but we’d like to see wireless charging included for such a high-end phone.

Like the other Z5 phones, a big addition is the fingerprint scanner. But we don’t mean in size as it’s somehow squeezed into the power button on the size. The scanner is quick and accurate and has the best placement on the device we’ve experienced. It’s even easy to use with the Z5 Premium on a flat surface without picking it up.

It’s also got the same camera which is a new 23Mp sensor with some improvements too such as faster auto focus (just 0.03 seconds according to Sony), x5 digital zoom without a loss of quality and the best low light performance.

We love that Sony has kept the physical two-stage camera button which makes photography that bit easier and feels more professional. The focus is amazingly fast and is easily one of the quickest we’ve seen helping you shoot more freely.

Be default the camera shoots at 8Mp, not the full 23Mp, so that the extra pixels can be used for oversampling. We’re not convinced by the Clear Image Zoom feature and while low light performance is good, the lack of optical stabilisation is a big omission here and something we’d expect Sony to offer.

The camera is very good but just not as good as Sony makes out. At the front is a 5Mp camera which is about as good as you might expect – good but nothing out of the ordinary.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: Software

There are new Nexus phones running Android 6.0 Marshmallow now but the Z5 Premium comes pre-loaded with version 5.1 Lollipop. As mentioned earlier, an upgrade will come but we can only review it like it is now.

Sony hasn’t really done much on the software side so it’s really about the design and hardware here. Previous users, and even those coming from a different Android manufacturer will feel at home.

As with previous Xperia phones the user interface is fairly vanilla so Sony has decided to use the stock Android Lollipop notification bar and recent apps menu. But it does add all the Sony style like normal including wallpapers, widgets, floating apps and own-brand apps like Walkman and PlayStation.

All the Sony Xperia Z5 phones come with Xperia Lounge Gold access but they come pre-loaded with some third party apps like OfficeSuite, AVG, Dropbox and Facebook. These do take up space and we’d rather choose what to install but Sony does allow you to uninstall them so it’s not so bad.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini And Mini Pro Get Official

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini and mini pro get official

Sony Ericsson has announced the XPERIA mini and the mini pro, apparently the smallest HD smartphones in the world. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread handsets can shoot 720p HD video, and use Sony’s BRAVIA engine along with Sony Ericsson’s custom UI. The XPERIA mini is touch-only, but the mini pro has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Behind the 3-inch 320 x 480 scratch-resistant touchscreen there’s a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 320MB of storage and a microSD card slot (a 2GB card will be included). There’s also quadband GSM/EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi, AGPS, Bluetooth, an FM radio and a 3.5mm headphones socket. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, face-detection and an LED flash. A bigger, 1200mAh battery than the last-gen mini adds up to 30-percent longer runtimes.

The four shortcut corners of the original X10 mini have been retained, but each now acts as a shortcut area for four icons, in what Sony Ericsson is calling 4×4. That, along with auto-correction on both devices, adds up to what the company reckons is the performance and usability of larger Android phones, but in a very pocket-friendly form factor.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini will go on sale in August 2011 in a choice of white, black, blue and dark pink. The XPERIA mini pro, meanwhile, will drop at the same time in white, black, pink and turquoise. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but we already know Vodafone UK will be ranging the mini pro.

How To Boot Into Sony Xperia M Recovery Mode

A recovery is a separate bootable partition on your Android device that you can use to install system updates and repair (factory reset) your device. A lot more can be done using a custom recovery, but the stock recovery that comes pre-installed on Android devices is limited to these features only. And FYI, these features are integrated into the Android OS as well — when you choose to factory reset your device from device settings or install an OTA update, your device reboots and boots into the stock recovery to finish the job.

The recovery installed on your device may not be touch-friendly. You’ll have to use the Power and Volume buttons available on your device to select and navigate between options in the recovery.

There are multiple methods to boot your Xperia M in recovery mode. The most handy (and hardware coded) method is about pressing a particular hardware button a couple of times while booting up your Xperia M. Others are software based, let’s have a look at them below.

NOTE

Sony Xperia devices don’t ship with a pre-installed recovery. So unless you’ve installed a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP on your device, you won’t be able to boot into recovery mode.

1) Boot into Xperia M Recovery Mode Using 

HARDWARE BUTTONS

This method is a fail-proof method that’ll always work for you, unless you’ve broken one of hardware keys. In such a case you’d be left with only the other two methods discussed on this page.

Switch off your Xperia M first

Switch it back on and the time when you see your phone’s LED notification light turn Pink! (or changes to any other color) — start pressing either the Volume UP or Volume Down key a couple of times to make your phone boot into recovery mode

Once you’re in recovery mode. Use Volume buttons to navigate Up and Down between options and Power button to select an option in recovery.

[ad1]

2) Boot into Xperia M Recovery Mode Using 

ADB

[ad1]

ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge, a tool used to send terminal commands to a Android device via a PC command line. ADB requires a bit of setup, but it gets the job done with much lesser effort than hardware buttons, so pretty useful in cases when you’ve to boot into recovery mode frequently. Also, if (for some reason) your hardware buttons aren’t working than this is a very good alternative to boot into recovery mode.

And make sure you’ve proper drivers installed for your device.

Extract the file (ADB chúng tôi you downloaded from the link above to a separate folder on your computer

Prepare your phone

Enable developer options: Go to your phone’s Settings » select About phone » Scroll to the bottom and tap on “Build number” seven times to enable developer options

Enable USB Debugging: Open phone’s Settings » select Developer options » Tick the “USB debugging” checkbox (under Debugging section)

└ If the script shows any error than that means either your device is not connected or you don’t have proper driver for your device installed on your PC.

FYI, the ‘Boot into Recovery Mode.bat‘ script file that we used above to boot your device into recovery mode only uses one line of command:

adb reboot recovery

If you already have ADB setup on your computer and you know how to use it, then you may just use the command given above to boot into recovery mode.

3) Boot into Xperia M Recovery Mode Using 

Quick Boot (Reboot) APP

Yes! There’s an app for rebooting your phone into recovery mode, and it’s the most easier of the methods we discussed above. But it won’t work unless you’ve root access on your device, and since not everyone roos their device, we’ve put this as the last method here.

ROOT ACCESS REQUIRED

Open the app and grant Root Access

Select ‘Recovery‘ from the list of options and it’ll boot your device into recovery mode

That’s all.

Verizon Galaxy S4 Scores Android 5.1 Update Too Unofficially

The official Android 5.1 update for Verizon Galaxy S4 via OTA or Kies is easily at least 3-4 months away, even if we’re to believe Samsung still cares about its S4 users — don’t forget that S4 is now full 2 years old, an update criteria that most OEMs stick to barely. But that’s not a big worry, at least we have the awesome developer community to bend toward, and grab an 5.1 update unofficially. The GamerROM is based off AOSP Android 5.1 update, and gets your OS all the goodness of pure stock Android UI — goodbye TouchWiz! — along with all the new features from the 5.1.

Even though is development stage, the GamerROM is working quite alright for the Verizon Galaxy S4. That’s a big plus, and a good achievement by the community to get a working build so early — even Nexus 4 is yet to get an official Android 5.1 update from Google as of today.

Though, there’s a one bug currently, the video recording is broken for now, but we really think it would be fixed pretty soon, maybe within a week, or two at the max. Network, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, etc. are all working fine.

And in any case, if you want to go back to official Samsung firmware for your Verizon Galaxy S4, you can do so pretty easily — a simple firmware flash using Odin software is all it takes to remove custom ROM, custom recovery and root, all in one shot, and restoring the phone back to stock, Samsung firmware.

Note: As you already know, it’s not an official Samsung Android 5.1 update for Verizon Galaxy S4, so expect few kinks at some corners of the ROM that are yet to be fixed by the team. Any major bugs will be reported below.

Bugs

Video recording is not working

Download the ROM file in .zip format from the source development page here, where you could also keep a tab on updates for the ROM, and any current issues with the ROM with fixes, if any, available. No nee to download the Gapps file as its contained in the ROM file.
