Zamir Ibarra: Hey man, nice video! You know if I could backup my stock ROM (Xperia SL) through recovery? I can't find any stock ROM for Xperia SL.

dianasaar: When i go to the service menu to check bootloader unlock, it has the line but doesn't say yes or no. It just says bootloader unlock allowed. Does this mean I can unlock it?

Rubikorigami: I really wish there were a quick (beginner/noob-friendly) sorta installer for CM. I'd really like to get it on my M. But I find it too complicated... How sad.

Michal Nedelnik: this is not for sony xperia e ??? :/ 

John Smith: Does it have walkman??? I really love walkman and the equalizer of the walkman app

Mukesh Madhav: Help me out here... You just installed CM10 withou rooting the phone?

DemonMonkey112: After I flashed the boot.img and rebooted my phone.. It did not show any purple light.. And I cant enter cwm recovery.

Neeraj Kadyan: i am using xperia z 4.4 kit but this update sucks and i want to degrade my phn i have installed flashtool firmware version of 4.3 c6603 but my model is c6602 does it work and when i try to flash my device it says no drivers found even i installed all drivers??????? does it is because of bootloader becoz i did not turn it of...

Juura Eestist: do i need root

Jim Pickens: same method for doing other roms?

iskandar vicson: hey where should i download the gapps anyway ?

Mark Muscat: I followed you up to the point where you copy the boot.img to the fastboot directory and flash it to the device. However when I try to reboot my device it just becomes a plain black screen after the sony logo... any help please?

dianasaar: I flashed the cm rom and rebooted my phone, it shows the cm loading screen but won't go further. What do I do? The instructions in the video are a bit unclear to me :/

Skyrid3r698: can anyone do that for me ?? D:

Kostas Stratakis: i have rooted the device yet when i run the fastboot flash boot boot.img it says it not rooted.I have downloaded a root chacker and checked fom the super user app to accept boot requests. I have an xperia tipo. do you know what maybe the issue? thnx

luis rodriguez: how can i unlock sony miro dont have any code or password or it help me plz

Sup Dawg: Thanks a lot I managed to get CM 10.2 on my xperia tablet z because of this :D. Btw the reason why it continues rebooting in cm logo for some people is because they need to wipe data as well not just cache. (what I think, worked with me) 

Siddharth Singh: I have a xpeiria ion, i am not able to unlock the bootloader. everytime i try doing the fastboot the blue led comes stays for 5 or 10 seconds and then go, and the phone starts getting charge, i installed all the drivers, but no luck. waiting for your reply sir, thanks.

Legends Tợn: hi Jeremy Phan, are you Vietnamese ?

Danny Müller: hi , i have a question ... i follow your steps but i think i delete many dates. now i stuck in the recovery ........ i cant get into the flashmod :( can you help me pls 

kiran bharadwaj: Awesum stuff.. had to flash and reboot it for couple of times.. now it works like a charm.. THanks a lot for the video mate

jay patel: Its truly working guys..............

Junaidi Ifdam: For MIRO user, after entering CWM , -Wipe data/factory -Wipe cache partition -install zip from sd card -choose zip -pick CM10 rom first. -install CM10 ROM -choose zip -install gapps -reboot. just follow these steps and you'll be sure to avoid bootloop. startup takes about 3 minutes.

Brayan Gil: Hi, Jeremy, i saw your videos on youtube, and you know a lot of things about Xperia Devices... I have a Sony Xperia E Phone, and a Sony Xperia Tablet S. Well, i wanted to ask someone with the experiencie because the only thing i've flashed was an old 2.3 GingerBread Tablet. My phone's current firmware is 4.1.1 (11.3.A.0.56) But i know Sony released for my phone an update but i cant get it, or download it. I tryed Pc Companion and Update Service, and it always shows that my phone has the lastest software. I live in Colombia, and i don't know if that is the reason for not getting any update. The lastest software is 11.3.A.2.23. I have some questions, i hope you can help me. I found this guide: http://www.xperiablog.net/forum/resources/xperia-e_c1505_11-3-a-2-23_vietnam_generic.145/ and i wanted to try it. But i'm not sure if this firmware from Vietnam will work in my device. (When i plug it to the computer, PCC name it C1504, and that firmware is for C1505, will it work? I'd like to know if i need to unlock the bootloader to run the update... Is it safe, that update, bring many improves for my device, and i want it!! I asked in xda forums, and the ask me if i unlocked the bootloader, but the post says that i don't need to unlock bootloader, it also does not requires root, but, i rooted my phone with SRSRoot... Other question i have, is, if i update ( if i can) to the latest firmware, do i need to root again my phone, root? I saw from xda forums, the way to root the 2.23 firmware to downgrade kernel, ... but is that the only way? {root 2.23 firmware http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-j-e/general/how-to-xperia-e-c1505-firmware-11-3-2-t2435957 } I hope you can answer my questions, and thank you for your time. 

ankit sharma: Hey.. I have a rooted xperia s wid a custom rom... I followed your video to achieve this. I have a question though.. i wanna install a new rom and on d internet i found dat i need to wipe cache, wipe data and delvik cache.. And then install zip from sd card..... But seeing as our mobile doesnt have an sd card... Wont the zip be deleted when i wipe data... forgive me im just a noob, but any kind of help would be appreciated:-) :-)

Yata Geru: Thanks!! Wonderful tutorial. I successfully installed CyanogenMod 9.1 on my Xperia Mini ;)

Luka Banožić: Hi, Jeremy! Please help. I have Sony Xperia Miro (ST23i), and I successfully installed CM10 on my phone following every step on this video tutorial (thanks a lot BTW), but I have a problem with rebooting. All features on CM10 work fine, but phone keeps rebooting itself like 20-25 times a day. It reboots when I press the power key on the top of my phone for screen unlocking/locking. Power button worked fine on ICS 4.0.4, and so was screen unlocking/locking.

Moahmmed Hany: i did everything till the last thing when i finished and tapped reboot my system and the cyanogenmod logo apperea and start rolling here is the problem it kept rolling for about 10 min now and never opens i'm waiting for it but no response what should i do ?
