Default CyanogenMod

Hello Everyone, I am new around here.

So about a week ago I got my first ever Android phone (after spending years on iOS) I am extremely happy with the Sony Xperia Z1, it just blows iPhones and iOS away, Let me get to the point haha.

I have done a long and painful process of:

1. Flashing Old Firmware.
2. Rooting.
3. Updating again.
4. Unlocking Bootloader.

So I'm at stage 5 now, I would like to install CyanogenMod. On the site it says C6902 But I have a C6903, will this make a difference? and if so are their any better alternatives to CyanogenMod?

Since I am inexperienced in all this Android and rooting etc (Long time iOS Jailbreak User) I would appreciate if somebody could point me in the right direction on where to go from here. I don't want to brick my shiny new device but I also want to give the device some customization.

Many thanks, I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Happy new year!

I found out you can install CM on C6903 but a lot of things are broken, the Camera is broken on all levels, but C6903 is supported.

Also try and use the search button for answers, I only recently asked the same question about 8 hours ago.

If you're still having problems reply here. I see you bricked your phone, sorry about that! Always take caution when cross flashing, etc. Did you back up everything to an SD card?

I'm trying again now, I fixed the brick by using Flashtool

So now I need to figure out where to get rom.zip and gapps.zip also where would I put them before attempting to flash the cyanogen boot loader again?

Cheers

Good, you know I wouldn't try and get CM on C6903... even though people say it's possible, the issues with it are many. I personally haven't seen anyone put CM on a C6903 device yet... and like I said, the amount of problems with it wouldn't make it fun.

What are you looking for that's so special about CM?

I am enthusiastic about trying something new, Basically I have never tried CyanogenMod before so I would like to chance it and if things go too wrong then I will flash back using Flashtool.

Also Its nice to know this so once the CM becomes more stable I can install it again in the future.

Sorry if im a nuisance, I really appreciate the help

Nearly all development for the Honami goes into CM11, which hasn't been graduated to nightlies just yet, meaning that there are no up-to-date builds available at the moment, FXP252 was supposed to be the first release of Honami CM11, but it wasn't deemed ready for it at this stage.
