Thanks for taking time out to go through my post.
I have a Xperia Z Ultra with official Sony Kitkat FW 4.4.2. & it works absolutely fine. So I decide to go the CFW way in the following order:
- Use EasyRootTool v12.1 to root the phone.
- Install Recovery via ZU-lockeddualrecovery2.7.154-BETA.installer
So far so good.
Phone reboots into TWRP Recovery from where I installed (After clearing Dalvik cache et al) Candykat ROM. Note ONLY the ROM was flashed. I did not flash GAPPS or any other package ONLY the ROM & hope the phone would boot up.
This is where it gets bad...
- Phone refuses to boot up
- I see the notification/power/charging light now change color to a blinking Red
Anyways, I use FlashTool.exe (flashtool-0.9.16.1) & resurrect the phone, flashing a factory build FTF file (God bless them souls who created it!).
This time I do the whole process again & try CandyKat ROM. Same friggin problem!!! Am I doing something that is not correct? Am I supposed to unlock the bootloader? I checked the forums & everyone seems to be having a good time flashing them ROMs. What gives?
Any suggestions/recommendations are ever welcome.
My phone is a C6802 model.
