Just a quick update of the previous article on “Sony Xperia Z2 upgrading to CyanogenMod 11“.

One thing is that CM now included the custom recovery and you do not need to download any other custom recoveries !

Download the CM 12 ZIP file for Sony Xperia Z2 (sirius) and extract the ‘boot.img’ file

Download link: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=sirius

Get the device into fastboot (bootloader mode)

fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img
fastboot reboot

Install CyanogenMod

Choose the “Install zip from sdcard –> Install from sideload” option

adb sideload cm-12-20150219-NIGHTLY-sirius.zip

After the install has finished choose the “Reboot system now” option.

    I have been using CyanogenMod (CM11 initially and now CM12 for at least 5 months) on my Z2 now for over one year and have no real issues with anything.
