Get CyanogenMod for the Xperia M


Installing CyanogenMod on Sony Devices
1.Download the CyanogenMod package for your device that you'd like to install to your computer.
Optional: Download 3rd party applications packages, like Google Apps which are necessary to download apps from Google Play.

2.Extract boot.img from the zip to your computer, you will need this file for fastboot.

3.Put the phone into fastboot mode:
With the device powered down, hold Volume Up and connect the USB cable. The notification light should turn blue to indicate you are in fastboot mode.

4.Open a terminal on the PC and enter the following:
* fastboot flash boot boot.img
*fastboot reboot

While the device reboots, press the Volume rockers a few times to load recovery.

5.Once the device boots into ClockworkMod Recovery, use the physical volume buttons to move up and down. The power button is used to confirm your selection.

6.Optional (Recommended): Select backup and restore to create a backup of your current ROM.

7.Select wipe data/factory reset.

8.You have two options for transferring and installing the installation packages. Both cases require adb to be working in recovery. The sideload method is more universal across devices, whereas the push and install method is more commonly used:
Sideload method: select install zip > install zip from sideload. Follow the on-screen notices to install the package. The installer does not necessarily display an "Install complete." message. You can tell the install is complete if there were no fatal error messages and you have regained control over the menu.
Push and install method: Open a command prompt (or Terminal on Mac and Linux) and navigate to the directory holding the package(s) you would like to install. On the device, navigate to the mounts and storage menu. If you see /storage/sdcard0 as a mountable volume, go ahead and mount it. If you do not see this directory, then instead mount the /data directory. Take note of which volume you mounted. Now, push the package(s) to your device:
If you mounted /storage/sdcard0, then: adb push /storage/sdcard0/
- If you mounted /data, then: adb push /sdcard/0/
where should be replaced with the package filename. Go back to the main menu and select install zip. Choose to install from the same directory where you pushed the package(s). If you are installing multiple packages, install CyanogenMod first and then install any subsequent packages on top of it.

9.Once installation has finished, return to the main menu and select reboot system now. The device will now boot into CyanogenMod.
