[Q] Xperia S Unable to Install any Custom Rom
New of the forum here. For the past few days, I have been trying to install a custom rom on my Xperia S which I bought in Hong Kong about 2 years ago. I also had it updated to JB .96 version.
I read the forums as much as I could and firstly tried to root the phone. I couldn't determine if I had a locked or unlocked bootloader. I used this rooting guide:
and then I moved on to installing a recovery which was also following doomlords guide :
After having done this, I wanted to install PureSlim KitKat on my Xperia S which I found here:
But once I got into the recovery of CWM and selected to install the zip file, after installation it says that it will reboot device but it doesn't. I tried to manually start the phone but it couldn't start up. I can only get it to go into flashmode and thus I ended up flashing a ftf which I found here:
Afterwards, I am back to square one and I repeated the steps to reroot the device and then I installed recovery again and then tried another rom, this time I tried LeopardRom which also resulted in the same problem of not booting.
I also use Galaxy S2 and have custom rom on that but I didn't expect it to be that much different for xperia S. I am willing to follow steps to resolve the issue here.
