Thankyou so much for the reply
I have just begun with this whole rooting, flashing in the last few days on my Xperia P, so basically im a novice, i hope you donot mind me asking for further help as a newbie.
i want to install Slimkat ( hoping it improves my battery life ), as yet ive been following this particular guide for that "http://droidors.com/2014/02/25/update-xperia-p-lt22i-to-android-4-4-2-kitkat-with-slimkat-custom-rom/". The thing is there are so many guides that im not sure which one is the right one for me. ( I followed this mentioned above and clearly it wasnt the right one for me)
As per your guidance im on Stock Rom currently, Details as below
Android Version- 4.1.2
I have a few questions and need a few links to apply what you ve said
1. How can i just confirm if my bootloader is unlocked ( i had unlocked it during my try to install custom Rom ), but since i ve then installed Stock Rom, i want to make sure the Bootloader is unlocked. Can you please suggest the steps for that.
2. Can you point me to Installing Nemesis kernel with steps.
3. After the Nemesis Kernel is flashed will my phone boot on Android 4.1.2 in case i just want to shift to this kernal and not flash the Rom
4. How do i install TWRP recovery
If i understand correctly installing Nemesis Kernal is just the bypass to be able to install Slimkat Kernal and Rom, because as you said with Jellybean Rom i will keep getting Status 7 error, please confirm if this is true.
Thanks a lot in advance.
so meanwhile download all these things and keep
