Hi,

I got still my Sony Sola here and want to install a newer android version for it.
My Sola has the version 2.3.7 installed, totaly stock not rooted not unlocked etc.
I want to install the newest SlimKat ([V1] [Slim Build 5.4]) on it, the thread says:

How to install :
Download the ROM
Extract boot.img and flash it
Copy the ROM to your SD Card
Boot into recovery
Wipe data, cache, dalvik cache, system (Wipe -> Advanced Wipe)
Go to Mount and uncheck system (IMPORTANT)
Install the ROM
Reboot

So this is what i have to do only? I dont need another revovery (all stock) or unlocked bootloader etc?

Thank you guys for help.

Hello!
First of all you need to unlock bootloader of your phone.
1.Then, flash custom kernel (probably this one from the rom's zip)
2.Reboot to recovery, do all 3 wipes and flash the rom. (Follow the instructions provided in thread you linked)

I think you don't have to update your phone to ICS before flashing.
