Stamina Mode have you heard of it 😛 Surely every Xperia user must have, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL saw for the first time this battery extending app “Stamina Mode” in the phone. Stamina Mode app or I say feature is a great one if you don’t want to install any third party battery saving apps.

How to update Manually Xperia S LT26i /SL/Acro S on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware –  OFFICIAL UPDATE ?

Recently Sony rolled out Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update for Xperia S, SL and Acro S which had “Extended Battery Mode”, so if you want to have stamina mode on your phone, here comes a solution. XDA developer Aeron has ported Xperia Z Stamina Mode to Xperia S, SL, Acros S, Ion successfully 🙂

How to Port Xperia Z Stamina Mode to Xperia S, SL, Acros S, Ion ?

Stamina Mode on Xperia S Ported

Let’s see how you can port Xperia Z Stamina Mode to Xperia S, SL, Acro S, Ion i.e. on Xperia 2012 handsets. We have 2 methods of porting.

[ Method – 1 ]

Download Stamina Mode files


Download SystemUI.apk I 1.81 MB


  • Deodexed Jelly Bean ROM
  • Xperia S, SL, Acro S, Ion must have Rooted Jelly Bean firmware.
  • Works for both locked as well as unlocked bootloader. To unlock bootloader refer to this official Sony unlocking bootloader guide.

Installation / Porting steps

  • After downloading the stamina mode zip file, unzip and copy it to your phone then, it has 3 folders “app, bin, framework”. App folder contains 3 apk files as “SemcPowerSaveModule.apk , Settings.apk, SuperStamina.apk”.

Do change the permission while moving below 3 files.

  • Now move the folder “app” to “system/app”.
  • Now move the file “bin” to “system/bin”. Change permissions to “Rwxr-xr-x”.
  • Now move file “framework.jar” to “system/framework”.

All done, reboot your device now 🙂 If it didn’t work for you, try checking the method 2 below.

Method – 2 ]

Download I 10 MB

After downloading the above file, flash it via CWM, it will work 🙂

New UI on Xperia S after porting looks great.

Do let us know if the Stamina Mode worked on your Xperia S, SL, Acro S, Ion or not. Leave comments in case you need any help regarding porting or installing. Do mention any bugs if you come across any.

    • Anurag Kumar July 7, 2013 at 8:20 pm - Reply

      Yes sure tell us, which firmware you are on right now…
      STAMINA mode has not been successfully ported yet….may bugs are there like “boot loop” etc.

    • LinuxDaemon July 9, 2013 at 3:53 am - Reply

      I have an unlocked and rooted LT30p running XperimenT rom v2.9 (http :// and here is my zip with fully working stamina mode on experiment: https ://
      Just download, unzip and then copy content from app folder to /system/app and so on from all folders using a root file manager. I am using Root Explorer. After reboot you’ll have the stamina mode!

    hai….im using xperia ion 4.1.2 and just rooted,i need to know how to do that by move folder app to system/app,second,and third instructions…

    • Anurag Kumar July 11, 2013 at 12:51 am - Reply

      Well do you have CWM recovery installed on your device ? If yes flash the zip file from alternate method.

  5. iqram July 16, 2013 at 1:38 am - Reply

    cwm??yes…i do…but how do i know that my device is doedex jb rom..
    sorry…i new here….:-)

    • Anurag Kumar July 16, 2013 at 1:42 am - Reply

      If you are rooted, go to system/app and see if there are any .odex files ? If yes then you are not on deodex rom 😛

  6. BlindThief July 17, 2013 at 8:05 pm - Reply

    So this should work if the ROM is deodexed? I had boot loops before and I just found out now that my ROM’s not deodexed so maybe that caused the problem.

    • Anurag Kumar July 17, 2013 at 8:11 pm - Reply

      Yes you need to have a deodexed rom for that…

      Deodex for XS –

      • BlindThief July 17, 2013 at 8:15 pm - Reply

        I’m on Xperia Ion JB. I can’t find a tool to deodex my phone. Well then, maybe my last resort would be installing a deodexed ROM. Oh well.

        • Anurag Kumar July 17, 2013 at 8:24 pm - Reply

          We will post the DeOdexing tool, as soon as we get it. 🙂 We will update the post soon.

          What’s your firmware version and phone model ?

          • BlindThief July 17, 2013 at 8:28 pm -

            Nice to hear! My phone’s Xperia Ion LT28h 6.2.B.0.211 Jelly Bean. I hope it’ll work, backing-up, flashing ROM, and restoring is a bit of a hassle. 😀

    Hi Anurag,

    As per instructions when i click on the Method 1 link it comes as invalid ,,,,,, so downloaded Method 2 and flashed it –it was successful ,,before this i had flashed Honami i1 home — after rebooting my XS ,,,as soon the Homescreen comes it continuously pops out as ,,Homescreen stopped and reboots,,, any solution.


    • Anurag Kumar July 18, 2013 at 1:01 pm - Reply

      Well if you are able to get to your homescreen, please clear the data of Xperia Home from “Settings > Apps > All > Clear data of Xperia Home.

      Are you getting Bootloops ?

      • Nithin July 18, 2013 at 9:19 pm - Reply

        Yes i cleared the data of Xperia Home , but again after rebooting iam getting the same popout,,,,,, and i tried flashing Stamina mode after rebooting my XS is getting reboot automatically,,,

        Sorry — what is Bootloops….

        • Xperia Guide July 18, 2013 at 9:23 pm - Reply

          In Bootloops phone reboots automatically…

          Try rebooting in recovery and restore the backup you made in recovery before flashing.

          We hope you made back up.

  8. Nithin July 18, 2013 at 10:19 pm - Reply

    In recovery i dint backup,,, but before flashing i made backup on my system

    In recovery wheather restore is possible ,,which i backed up in the system

    • Anurag Kumar July 18, 2013 at 10:21 pm - Reply

      No i am afraid recovery can restore only files backed up by recovery process.
      Before flashing you made back up from titanium backup ( full system + data ) or by sony backup and restore app. ?

      In bootloops i guess you are not able to access anything on your phone or you are ?

  9. Nithin July 18, 2013 at 10:31 pm - Reply

    Back up done through sony backup and restore app.
    What has to be done now,,,,,,,

    • Anurag Kumar July 18, 2013 at 10:54 pm - Reply

      Now when you are not able to reboot the phone or able to access the homescreen of your phone.
      try flashing the ftf file of your firmware again.

      Before flashing, try this :- as soon phone opens, press power + Volume up button to reboot the phone and then try is phone booting ?

      I guess no other option is left…if you can access the phone, do a factory reset.

  10. Nithin July 18, 2013 at 10:51 pm - Reply

    It was working fine in the begining,, after i flased the Stamina mode its getting rebooted….

  11. Nithin July 18, 2013 at 11:20 pm - Reply

    I did everything now even

    (Before flashing, try this :- as soon phone opens, press power + Volume up button to reboot the phone and then try is phone booting ?)

    Now only Honami home flashed after rebooting i cleared the Home app data,,,,,,,to check i rebooted Xs normally then on home screen as ,,, unfortunately stopped….

    • Anurag Kumar July 18, 2013 at 11:35 pm - Reply

      Now it means you are able to boot in your phone properly ? If yes, then please restore your backed up data.

      Something has gone wrong. Please restore back.

    now experiencing bootloop. hehehe, made a wrong decision trying to install this.

    • Anurag Kumar August 28, 2013 at 9:45 am - Reply

      don’t install stamina mode on jb .96 firmware, just now another use said, bootloop in phone…

      Try rebooting in CWM and then flash back your old backup or reflash the firmware again.

      • marcelo August 31, 2013 at 8:58 am - Reply

        Hi Anurag will be a version of stamina mode compatible with .96 firmware?
