The below mentioned ROM is only for Xperia S and SL. please do not cross flash it on Acro S LT26w. ROM can be flashed on both locked as well as unlocked bootloader phones.
- It is mandatory to perform a “Factory Data Reset” and “wiping all Data and Cache partitions”.
- Do get a backup of your old ROM before proceeding to be on safe side.
- Take a back up of your data also.
- You can easily flash “update.zip” via any recovery.
- Pre-rooted SuperSU and BusyBox installed.
- Working signed stock kernel included.

Hello , I have Xperia S with 6.2.B.0.211 installed without root , can i flash this pre-rooted version of the same version over this one ? if it is possible to do so , kindly mention how to do that using the CWM recovery , because i can’t get into recovery mode using any combination of keys !
thanks in advance …
yes you can install pre-rooted version over this. Do back up your ROM in case anything goes wrong you can go back.
Reboot your device into recovery. (CWM). To enter in recovery press “volume up” button again and again as soon you see “Pink” LED at boot up.
Now flash the ROM’s “update.zip”. (time consuming step). “Wiping Data” in recovery is recommended.
sorry for asking alot but it really never comes to CWM mode , i tried what you said many times without any results , it always boots as normal ..
is this because there is not a CWM recovery installed , if yes , how can i install it …
it’s very important for me to flash this ROM because my current ROM is the crab update from Sony (The Wi-Fi issue ‘Cannot connect to any WLANs unless the Airplane mode is activated’ the fullHD recording issues and so on ….)
I really will appreciate your help ..
thanks in advance ..
Yes because it is CWM recovery not installed.
I have corrected Wi-Fi issue on My XSL by “resetting the phone “factory reset”. It worked for me, don’t know will it work for you.
For installing CWM refer here – http:// android.gs/install-clockworkmod-recovery-sony-xperia-s/
Detailed steps can be found on above link for installing CWM.
there is an error said that ‘Your Device must be rooted’ …. but i want to install CWM because i need to flash the DoomLord pre-rooted ROM … I don’t know but it seems impossible to do that >>>
It’s necessary to have root buddy…you need to root your device then ?
so if I want to install this pre-rooted ROM , I need to root my ROM .. hmmmmm , I think that is going to make me crazy after all …. thank you very much Anurag for your patience … i intend to study the basic steps of programming Android Devices at my Phd thesis maybe next year , thanks alot ….
