Jelly bean for Xperia ray st18i..! Yes, that’s possible. This tutorial that will guide you to install Jell Bean 4.1.2 on your Xperia ray smartphone. We all know that Jellybean is not officially released by Sony and it will never going to happen in the future! Sony already announced that Sony Xperia ray’s final version is Ice-cream Sandwich (ICS). Sony Xperia ray’s last official release is ICS 4.0.4. So I was really unhappy because my phone will never get jelly bean update. But, now my Xperia ray is running on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 without any issues! The unbelievable truth is, now my phone is running better that the earlier version of android. I’m fully satisfied on Jelly Bean.

How To Unlock The Bootloader of Sony Xperia Ray?

Step 1: Bootloader Unlocking

We have to unlock your bootloader to install a custom ROM. If you already unlocked the bootloader, you can skip this step. If not, follow these instructions. If my steps are not clear, just go to google and type “unlock bootloader of Xperia ray“, and fine a good tutorial for unlocking the bootloader.

  • I hope you already downloaded the Android SDK, it’s in .zip format, so you will need 7zip or WinRAR to extract it. So, extract the files.
  • Run “SDK Manager.exe” and choose “Tools” and “Extras”. Click “Install x packages” and “Accept all”.
  • Wait until all packages will be installed.
  • When all packages are downloaded and installed, go to sdk/platform-tools/ and check you have adb and fastboot is there.
  • Now, go to and read the instructions carefully.
  • Go to the bottom of the page and click Start unlocking the bootloader.
  • Type *#*#7378423#*#* and go to Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status.
  • If you can see Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes, you can continue to the next step. But, if you see Bootloader unlock allowed: No, Do not continue.
  • When you reach the Create unlock boot loader key request page, just fill the forum with your Name, IMEI, and Email. [Don’t use the fake email address, because your unlock-code will be going sent to this email address].
    If you can’t submit the forum, remove the last digit of your IMEI code and try again!
  • After few moments, you will receive an email from Sony with you Unlock-code. Don’t delete the email or don’t lose the unlock-code until you unlock the bootloader.

Hurray! It’s time to unlock the bootloader!

  • Download the Fastboot Driver file [Check requirements above]. Extract the file (android_winusb.inf) and copy to Android SDK>extras>google>usb_driver and replace it.
  • Turn on the device by pressing the Fastboot button and connect it to the PC with a USB cable.
    Note: To connect the Xperia ray device in fastboot mode, press and hold the Volume Up button while connecting to the PC. Blue LED light will turn ON, so this means that your device is connected in Fastboot mode!
    More details about Fastboot buttons of different phone models are given in Sony help page.
  • On your computer, you will be asked for drivers. Point to the usb_driver folder where you placed the android_winusb.inf-file, and select the Android Boot loader Interface-file.
    Note: If your PC is already having the driver, it won’t be asked. Then, you can skip this step!
  • Then, Go to Android SDK>platform-tools> and press and hold shift button on free space and right click and select “open command window here”. Then copy fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version to the command prompt and verify that you get a response back (for example “0.3”). This means your device is connected properly. See the below image: Then close the command prompt.
  • Last and final step: Re-open the command prompt like the above step and paste the command fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xKEY replace the KEY with you unlock-code, and press enter.
  • Congratulations! Your bootloader was unlocked! Turn on the phone, don’t worry, it may take some time to turn on.
  • Please note, now phone settings are currently restored. So, turn on the USB debugging once again.

Step 2: Installing ROM Manager App

We need to install an application to install Clockworkmod in our Xperia ray smartphone.

  • Download and install ROM manager from Google Play.
  • You can use your PC to download and install ROM Manager. See my video tutorial for more details.

Step 3: Copying Files To SD Card

  • Connect your phone to the PC in mass storage mode.
  • Copy the zip files to your SD card (Super Jelly Bean 6.0 and gapps-jb-20130624-sjb Note: Don’t extract the files into the SD card.
  • Disconnect the cable from PC.

Step 4: Installing ClockworkMod

  • Turn on the phone & open ROM manager.
  • Open ROM Manager and Install ClockworkMod Recovery. See the below step-by-step screenshots for detailed explanation.
  • Select Recovery Setup option in ROM Manager:

Jelly bean for xperia ray

unlock bootloader of xperia ray

jelly bean for xperia ray st18i

Click “Yes”

unlock bootloader of xperia ray

Select ClockworkMod 2.x

jelly bean for xperia ray st18i

Step 5: Flashing Fusion Kernel

I have already seen the CyanogenMod 10 Jelly Bean 4.1 firmware in my friend’s phone, he is not satisfied with that firmware. But, this version is very stable and having better performance than the CyanogenMod 10 Jelly Bean 4.1. So, let’s start flashing our Fusion Kernel.

  • Turn off the device and connect your device to PC in fastboot mode.
  • Copy urushi_fusion_5.4.img to Android SDK>platform-tools directory.
  • Open command prompt from that directory [In the platform-tools directory, press and hold shift button on free space and right click and select “open command window here”.]
  • Type fastboot flash boot urushi_fusion_5.4.img and press enter. You will get a “Finished” message after the successful completion of flashing.

Step 6: The Final Step – Installing Jelly bean and gapps

  • Turn on the phone and boot into the recovery. To get into the boot recovery, Press power button to turn on the device, then press volume down button few times while the phone gets booted.
  • After getting into the recovery, go to backups and restore>backup to take a backup of your current ROM.
  • Then wipe data, wipe cache, wipe Dalvik cache (advanced>wipe Dalvik cache)
  • After wiping, select install zip>Super Jelly Bean 6.0 and confirm the install process.
  • After installing, select install zip>gapps-jb-20130624-sjb and confirm the install process.
  • Next step is to turn off the device. So, select power options>power off.

Tip: To navigate options you can use your volume up and volume down buttons. To select use the home button. To go back, use the back button.

Note: After the installation process, allow the rom to settle for at least 15min, then turn on the device as usual. It may take some time for the first boot. If you have any issues in booting, repeat the Step 6 one more time.

Congratulations!! You successfully installed jelly bean on your Sony Xperia Ray Smartphone!

So, now I’m waiting for your response. Let me know if you completed these steps successfully. Having any issues? Feel free to comment here!

      1. Sorry for that. In my case, I can use Google Search without any issues. I don’t why this issue occurred in your phone. Well, what are all the apps you installed(no default apps)? Did you update the Google search app?

      Really glad to know that. Thanks for following my tutorial. Currently I’m not accepting donation to NetMascots.

      If you like NetMascots, promote us on facebook, twitter etc

      1. I spent most of 2 days trying to get this to work. Many guides assumed I knew some not so obvious things. You understand how many of us need a guiding hand. I’ve loaded Cyanogenmod on other phones and it is never easy. This install seemed impossible until I found your step-by-step guide. Thank you so much.

  4. I was looking for step tutorial to flash my xperia ray to jellybean, I will try this today. Does google now work fine with this rom?

      1. акхил помогите правильно установить jelly bean на sony xperia ray
        плиз ))

        1. Hi.

          Can you make it in English?


  5. i would like to try this SJB on my Ray, but before that i just wondering does this ROM will wipe all of my data? if yes, can i backup all of my data with titan backup?


    1. Hi Choe!

      Hope you are doing well. Warm Welcome To NetMascots!

      Yes, we need to wipe all data, so take a full backup to your PC and start the proceed.


      1. yeah thank you..

        i have another question, i watch the said the SJB needs to move to SD card, what if someday i want to upgrade my SD card, does it effect “something” ? ..sorry for stupid question i am a real noob..

        thank you for your help

        1. Hi Choe.

          This is not a stupid question Choe. This a common question. Well, If you changed your sd card, this will not cause any issues to your Jelly Bean. We are just using those “two zipped files” only for the “installation purpose”. After installation, you can delete those files from your SD card. I hope your doubt has been cleared.

          Please don’t hesitate to ask queries here. I’m always happy to solve your issues.

          3. Phone is restarting when running apps.
          4. Screen is not resuming after locking the phone!
          5. Freezing in most of the time.

  20. Hey,
    can i use step-6 Flashing Fusion Kernel with help of xperia flashtool
    coz i don’t have android sdk if yes then tell me process

    1. Hi Sunny!

      I’m really sorry for the late reply. I was busy with my university exams.

      Well, Here are the simple steps to flash the kernal using flashtool:

      1. Cop the kernel urushi_fusion_5.4.img to Flashtool>>firmwares directory
      2. Staet flashtool software.
      3. Press the flash button.
      4. Choose “Fastboot Mode” when a window is popped.
      5. Turn off your device.
      6. Now connect your device to fastboot by pressing the button right to menu button.(The led must turn to blue)
      7. On Fastboot Toolbox click on “Select kernel to Flash”.
      8. Wait to complete and you are READY!

  21. The download link for gapps-jb-20130624-sjb is dead ,can I/we use gapps-jb-20131511 sjb insted of gapps-jb-20130624-sjb ?

    1. Hi.

      I’m adding all the necessary files to my resource section.You can easily download all the needed files from the resource section within 2 days.


  22. Hey Akhil,
    when i am on step 5. it says root access required
    but my RAY is already rooted and unlocked bootloader.
    can i flush it using flush tool ??
    can i use fusion kernal 5.5 ??

    1. Hi Sunny!

      I’m going to post an article for the latest version 7.0 and 8.0 with a comparison. I will never suggest you to use kernal 5.5 in the version JB 6.0. Please wait 2 more days for the article publish. Don’t forget to subscribe my newsletter to receive updates!


  23. Hi Akhil,

    i just followed your Video post and tried to flash my mobile, But i missed the 4th step. ( which was also not there in Video ) and proceeded with 5th step ( Flash boot command ). Now my phone is hung up and it is not showing anything, ( Fusion logo came up at the start and now dark screen ). Please help me out from this. Awaiting for your reply.

    1. Hi Sandeep.

      Actually the 4th step is very important. You have to install clockworkmod for the proper working of jelly bean. So, I’m requesting you to repeat the steps one more time, and please note that. After installing GB, allow at-least 15-min to settle the ROM. Then you can turn-on your ray!


      1. Thanks for the reply Akhil,

        I believe there will be some old version of cwm installed in the mobile by default, ‘coz as you said, i tried installing JB one more time ( and it was showing CWM 3.5 version, something like that ) and after 15min or so, the phone booted properly. Now it is working fine, and very much faster than ICS. I was waiting for something like this. Thanks for the upload, and i hope you will also upload if you get a faster ROM than this,

        Thanks once again.

        1. Hello Sandeep.

          I’m very happy to know that. By the way, I’m glad to say that, the new version of JB is released and the review article will be published today. So, read my review and take decision!


          1. I’m glad to hear the news. Waiting for your review.. 🙂

  24. You are really a genius. Thank you so much Akhil.

      Well, I hope JB works fine on your phone. If you have any queries, feel free to ask here.

    Regards Calle

    1. Hi Calle.

      I’m sorry for the late reply. I was busy with my exams. This is a very rare issue. Well, did you tried the latest version of jellybean? Check this latest version of Jelly Bean for Sony Xperia Ray


  30. Is there any way to change Bootloader unlock allowed: No to Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes?

    1. Hi John.

      Oh! This is very rare. Well I have found some solutions on other sites. Try this search on google:


  31. Hi Akhil

    Thank you very much for this update.
    Works like a charm as you detailed all the steps perfectly.

    Somehow i’m having trouble in using the camera and camcorder app.
    As for the camera, i couldn’t use the flash.
    And for the camcorder, i couldn’t change the resolution.

    So i tried install other camera app includes the camcorder such as snap or camera JB as an alternative…but both didn’t work well because each time the camera or camcorder start using the apps, the screen showed green blink with many noise.
    Though if i take a photo or record a video the result were good, but the problem lies only on the screen while using the apps.

    So i wonder if you can suggest the best way to install other camera apps without having such an issue.
    Again, many thanks and great works.

    1. Hi Haya.

      Thanks for trying my tutorial. Your all issues are resolved in the latest update. Please update your ROM now:


  32. I installed it, working well, quite fast as compared to stock BUT Play store is not working

    1. Hi FAS.

      Play store is not working?? Looks very odd! Try to clear the “app data” of play store from settings and try again. This may help you. Because, some data error may cause this issue.

      Try it and please update me.


  33. big thx bro this is great ,the only problem is the camera flash doesnt work any idea?

    1. Hi Wisaam.

      This is a major drawback of our xperia smartphones. I don’t know why sony removed this feature. So, our hardware doesn’t support flash during camera shot. This is not a ROM issue.

      Anyway, we can only turn on/turn off the light continuously during taking photos or videos.

  34. Hey,
    sorry to bother, but i have a problem. In the 5th step when i open the command window, write there that “fastboot flash boot urushi_fusion_5.4.img” kind of a thing it tells me that “device must be rooted first” but i have rooted Ray, i went through your own tutorial for rooting Ray, rooting was succesful and SuperUser is in my appdrawer. Can you hep me please?

    1. Hi Bob.

      I’m really very sorry for this issue happened to you. As you said, I think your phone is rooted. But I don’t know, why is this happening to you. So, here are my suggestions.

      1. Ensure that, USB Debugging is enabled.

      2. If you are flashing with SDK, try with “latest flashtool” method:

      3. Did you unlocked the bootloader properly?

      4. Did you connected your phone in fastboot mode?(A blue LED will be seen)

      Try these suggestions and reply me.


  35. if i install 4.1.2 & i will face any problem…so what can i do??
    can i downgrade 4.0 or 2.3??
    plz help

    1. Please wait for the “downgrade procedure” tutorial.

    2. You can now easily downgrade to original ROM. Read this article: How To Restore Original ROM On Xperia Ray

  36. Excellent tutorial.. I followed and now have JB on my Xperia Ray.
    Just to notes to take into account.

    – the usb_driver its only needed on Windows on Linux and iOS its not needed
    – after unlocking the boot-loader the phone boots and resets to factory default so you lose your configuration. Its important to backup it previous this step.

    One thing interesting to its that my phone AnTutu benchmark was 4700 aprox. previous the upgrade and now its 5400! (with the same applications running)

    Great Article
    I have Updated my Xperia Ray

    1. Hi..

      Really happy to hear that.

      Thanks for the comment.


      1. Hi!
        as my previous comment I have updated my Xperia Ray in Jelly Bean, i have also changed my bootanimation but I want to relock bootloader again because my phone is starting with FUSION Display.

        1. Hi.

          If you want to install custom ROM, then you have to use a custom kernel. So, the boot animation will change according to the kernel. Anyway, If you want to restore your stock ROM of xperia ray, then follow this tutorial :How To Restore Original ROM On Xperia Ray


  39. hello akhil..i have complete your tutorial and now my experia ray is 4.1 jelly bean..thank you…just i want to ask you..if i want to flash other rom…which step i must repeat??? thank you very much for your tutorial.. 😀

    1. Hi nazmi.

      Hope you are doing great.

      Well, you can try any Custom ROM by flashing the needed kernel and install the ROM .zip file.


  40. hey bro
    when i connect my xperia in fastmode i got notification that usb is not recognize in windows 8

    1. Hi Saad.

      Looks like the needed drivers for sony xperia ray are not installed on your PC. Choose any of these options.

      1. If you are running genuine windows, turn on automatic driver installation from “windows update options”. Then, try to reconnect the device once again. Windows will automatically find the needed drivers and install.


      2. Download Latest Flashtool Software and install it. Then go to “C:Flashtooldrivers” folder and install “Flashtool-drivers.exe” and select “xperia ray” from the list while installation. This will automatically install all needed drivers needed for our sony xperia ray.

      Hope this will resolve your issue.

      I’m waiting for your reply.


  41. Hello Akhil,
    Thank you for this great tutorial. Very helpfull, 5 stars. I did all step by step and everything works perfectly and my phone seems to be more faster than before!

    Maybe you know how to solve problem that this phone doesnt recognize my headphones (accessory not supported). When i bought this phone i used these headphones and there were no problems. After about 6 months my battery started to drain very quickly, in about 1 day IDLE. I solved this problem, it was software issue. I reinstalled OS and battery life improved dramatically, about 3-4 days now, but phone started not to support any accessories except original SE headphones.

    Thanks again for this topic,

    1. Hi Valts.

      Welcome to NetMascots. First of all, thank you so much for following my tutorial, and I’m very happy to know that, you are fully satisfied.

      Now comes to your issue, “accessory not supported” is an error message occurs whenever the phone software or accessory is not supporting to the hardware of the phone. Actually, I’m using the headset from the “beats by dr dre”. It may little bit costly, but It Rocks!!

      I think, the issue is with your headphone port or your headphone. Did you tried any other headphones? If any other headphones is working, then the issue is with your headphone. If other headphones are also not working, then the issue is with your headphone jacket. Then you have to go to any nearest sony support centre. Hope this helps.



  42. Hi Akhil,
    Thank you for your response.

    Yes i tried 3 different sets, my computer set, original SE headphones and my Thomson headphones.
    The only ones which worked were SE headphone (because it is the only one with mic wiring i guess), but the sound was strange. When there were no music playing, it made some noises and music sounded like the jack wasnt plugged in completele Now i opened my phone to see whether the jack port is not damaged or dirty. Cleaned everything but looks like connector places are a bit damaged ( maybe burnt). I remembered what could be the cause of this problem, i once tried to connect my phone to my BMWs stereo ( old NAVI- cassette one) I suppose that the current was too high (or i did something wrong lol) and burned connector slots. Life is a lesson, you never learn if you never do.
    But the phone is still great even now without possibility to listen to music.

    Best wishes,


  43. hye akhill, just wanna ask you..can we install sony bravia engine after we flashing other rom in our experia ray?? can you write the steps..thank you..:)

    1. Hi Nazmi.

      It is under development stage. I will inform you when it is complete. So, don’t forget to subscribe my newsletter.


  44. hi akhil. i followed all your instructions. and now JB logo is animating for 1 hour already. how long should i wait before it goes to home screen? any suggestions? thanks!

    1. Hello Yuri.

      This is a common mistake done by the most of my readers. After installing the ROM/Flashing the ROM, you have to wait atleat 15min to 20min for ROM settlement. So, do this:

      1. Turn-off the device(If not possible, remove the battery) for 5 minutes.
      2. Turn-on the device.

      If the above steps is not working, then repeat the last step (step 6).

      And, I’m extremely sorry for this trouble happened to you. If you have any issue, please fell free to ask here.


  45. It works. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Hi Marija.

      Thanks for the comment. Glad to hear that, my tutorial helped you.

  46. After installed jellybean…. can i unroot my xpreia ray?

    1. Hi Nazmul.

      Currently it is not possible. But, you can expect in future updates.


  47. sir i tried all the steps ,but i not able to do last step as while i m not getting the option to wipe data and cache as my phone always show black screen after rebboting

    1. Hi.

      To proceed with the last step, you need to boot into the recovery. For that, you have to press the the power button and turn on the device. After pressing the power button, you need to press the volume down button few times when the phone is getting turned on. Then only you can see the options for doing the last step. Please follow this and hope this will help you to resolve your issue.

  57. Does the phone have to have an unlocked bootloader I mean my xperia ray can have it but I have issues with Android SDK manager

    1. Hi Methan.

      I’m not getting your point. Can you please explain your query?


  58. Hello Akhil, During bootloading whenever I enter the command “fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version”
    in command prompt, it shows ” and nothing happens. What should I do now? Also one more thing, when I connected my phone in fastboot mode it didn’t asked for drivers as you mentioned above. I even install the drivers using FLASHTOOL DRIVERS APPLICATION but even then the same problem persists. Please help me!

  59. When I run SDK manager a comand window just opens and closes every time

      1. I am facing the same issue as “adam” & I can’t understand what to do after that written on the alternative link you provided. I think that is quite another issue which have no relation with this. that is “How to flash custom kernel”. But after that, what I am supposed to do. I mean, after finishing that, from where i should continue in this current page ?

        By the way I am satisfied with ICS on my xperia ray & dont want to do these stuffs, it seems quite hard to me.

        but my wifi is not scanning after upgrading into ICS. when I press scan button, nothing happens. Would you please give me a suggestion to fix this problem, it would be the best solustion for me instead of doing all these.


      2. by the way, I am from Bangladesh and I know Hindi well enough.Since you are from india, Would you plz share me your skype ID so that I can contact you directly. mine is nasim.reza49

        If you feel uneasy, No need to publish this comment. But brother, I am badly in need of your help !!

  60. Managed to fix that but now when I type in fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version it says waiting for device but it is already conected

    error: cannot open ‘superFusionRay-kk.img’

    1. Hi Adam.

      What is this “kk” in file name?

      fastboot flash boot filename.img

      fastboot flash boot urushi_fusion_5.4.img

      Please check your file name.


      1. when i download the file in the link thats what i get should i just delete the kk

      2. Hi I tried this with flashtool too and it works but when reboot my phone the superfusion logo shine for a minute and then the screen is dark but the lights are still on.So since I can go in recovery when the superfusion logo flashes should i just wipe cache dalvik cache and install gapps and super jelly bean.

        Should I do that

        1. Hey Adam.

          Looks like, you have missed a step in my tutorial. This issue will happen, If you are not properly cleared the caches. So, try again. It will definitely work.


  63. hi, I downloaded all the needed files but i’m really scared, so how risky is what i’m about to do? i mean what’s the worst scenario ?

    1. Hi Ali.

  74. Hello, after step 6, i reebooted my cell but after fusion logo there is nothing, just a little white screen and thats it. whats wrong here? m i able to get back to ICS 4.O from here?

  75. Help please,

    After doing step 6, i restarted my phone with power button+ Valium down button i got FUSION logo and then nothing, tried several time. but same result, what should i do now?

    1. Hey Raja.

      I’m extremely sorry for the issue that was happened to you. The reason for the issue is clockworkmod (It may resolve if you going to repeat the steps again). Downgrading from jellybean to ICS is possible. You can follow this article for downgrading your OS:

      Before going to downgrade, I’m requesting you to read my review and tutorial for upgrading sony xperia ray to kitkat 4.4; Article will be published within 24hrs.


      1. Thanks for ur response, finally i successfully installed Jelly Been on my Xperia ray…….the problem was that i was simply pressing and holding volium down button. the correct way was continuously pressing volium down button after step 6.

        1. Hi Raja.

          Thank you so much for updating your comment, and I’m very happy to know that your issue is resolved.

  76. i am waiting for that article.

  78. hi akhil,
    I am at the 6th step. I am unable to start fone in recovery mode. What to do? 🙁

    1. Hi.

      This is a common mistake doing by most of the readers, to get into the recovery you have to press the volume down button repeatedly while booting. DON’T PRESS AND HOLD THE VOLUME DOWN BUTTON.


      1. I did it bro, I continusly tapped on the volume down button, while booting the fone. I also tried the app ” x-parts ” to start the fone in recovery mode. But to no success. Is there any way out of this?? 🙁 I feel lost.

        1. Hi Nithin.

          I can understand your current status of your issue. Please don’t worry and stay calm. Please clarify my queries:

          1. Did you completed the flashing without any error? Are you sure? (If possible, can you please repeat the process and provide me the error log/screenshots?)

          2. I think, now you can see only the blank screen in your device?

          3. Is you device is getting hot after switch on?


          1. My fone’s current status is that i can use it the way it was earlier .
            Please let me knw how to attach a screen shot in here.
            Further explanation is followed in th enext post.


  79. First of all let me thank u so much for ur concern, Akhil.
    When u mentioned abt flashing only, my thoughts went into it. Sorry.
    Let me tell u what happens when i do the flashing.

    I do all the steps which u guided in the video as well as the flowchart.
    When I paste that command in the “CMD” screen I get a message “”waiting for device”.
    After that there is no response.

    I am sure that my fone is connected in fastmode and all the steps wer done appropriately.

    Long bak I had upgraded my fone from GB to ICS . Then I switched bak to GB itself.
    So currently I am using GB.
    I wish I cud get this JB version of urs in my fone.

    Hope u’ll help me out. Awaiting response.

    1. Hi Nithin.

      After doing some research, I’m sure that your issue is “google usb driver”. You need to install that driver for resolving this issue.

      To resolve this follow this steps:

      1. Download SDK from google.

      2. Read Step 1 of this article. Follow the steps under (Hurray! It’s time to unlock the bootloader!)

      This will install the driver. See the video tutorial for details.

      After installing the driver, restart your pc and try again.


      1. Thank u so much Akhil!
        U sorted out the exact issue with my installation !
        U are awesme man!!
        Thank u thanx a lot fr ur help!! 🙂
        Will provide reviews abt this os soon.. 🙂
        Thanks a lot ..akhil!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

        1. Hello Nithin.

          Glad to know that your is resolved, and thank you so much for valuable feedback. I really appreciate it.

    1. Hi.

      I don’t get you!

  81. i try to fastboot flash boot the phone but it is not working it says: plz help me fix this cause i really need this rom badly

    1. Hey Shon.

      Can you please tell me the exact error message?


  82. Hi Akhil, Thank you very much for your tutorial,,,
    Firstly I stuck in Command Prompt but now everything is ok 🙂

    I had a little problem with my xperia, the battery usually drop to 1% (I think the problem at the battery, but I already change with the new one) and the problem still same, can you help me to fix it??

    thx 🙂

    1. Hi Rian.

      Can provide me the log/screenshot of your Command Prompt? I need to know the error code for resolving your issue.

      On to next issue:

      1. What Android Version are you running?

      2. What is your kernel version?

      3. Is this is a notification issue or your phone is getting switch-off due to low battery?

      Please provide your feedback to my above queries to assist you better.


      1. Hi Akhil, thank you for your reply
        After I read your new article, now I changed my xperia to KitKat OS..
        but the problem still same, the battery notification drop to 1% and sometimes it restart automatically

        My kernel version 3.4.82-nAa+ Langes@BulidBox #1
        Baseband Version 8x55A-AAABQOAZM-203028G-77

        Thx 🙂

        1. Hi Rian.

          Your device is completely compatible with KitKat. So, this may be a hardware issue. Kindly contact the nearest sony service centre. If you are on warranty period, use can solve this issue for free. But, before going to sony sevice centre, kindly restore the original stock OS (ICS)


  83. can we remove the fusion logo when start up…..

    1. Hi Sovinda

      Currently we can’t do that. Because, changing logo may lead to some issues in the working of ROM.


  84. Hi Akhil.
    I am using jelly bean in my fone as per ur video tutorials an instructions.
    I had told earlier that I would put in my reviews.
    I was using GB earlier. My fone has got completly transformed after putting in this OS.
    A big thanx for u.
    I was tired of the usual GB.

    Only thing am disappointed is about the CAMERA . As u knw xperia ray has a realy gud cam.
    But after putting in this JB the cam functions have severly gone down i gues..

    But I can adjust with the additional features of the cam as there are lots of apps available in the market. But what am sad is that the “focussing ” is not available in this OS .
    If u remember, the GB version had diffrnt modes “macro”, “infinite”, “touch focus”.
    I had really loved the focusing abilty of this camera.

    But the focusing option is absent here, quite sad abt the cam clarity also 🙁

    1. Hi Nithin.

      This is a common issue with most of the custom ROMs. I hope, next update may resolve this issue.


  85. Hello Akhil,

    my phone is rooted now, and I have updated it to jelly bean, but after reset my phone its stuck with “sony” startup logo?

    is it normal? do I need to wait for need to do something? please advise.

    1. Hello,

      are you available at the moment?

    2. Hi Jitendra.

      Sorry for the delay. I was busy with my college works. It is normal. Turn off you device for 20 min and turn on the device. It will work.


  86. how long to take my ray to turn on after flashing kernel?…

  87. Hello Akhil KA, introduce, I am from Indonesia.
    I just finished a root xperia ray, now information from my phone: 4:04 android version kernel version, for 4.1.b.0.587 numbers.
    I want to ask if I could use the method in the above article for installing a jelly bean.
    sorry, my english messy, happy can also comment here

    1. Hi Dhany.

      Welcome to NetMascots, First of all I’m apologizing for the late reply.

      Your sony xperia ray is perfect for installing Jelly Bean. Try it and update me. If you are facing any issues, I’m happy to help you.


  88. hi Akhil, this night i hv success install JB on my Ray, but how i can bakcup my BBM apps to new rom?

    1. Hi Dhany.

      Use Titanium Backup app.


  89. Hi Akhil, i have trouble while doing this step “Then, Go to Android SDK>platform-tools> and press and hold shift button on free space and right click and select “open command window here”. Then copy fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version to the command prompt and verify that you get a response back (for example “0.3″). This means your device is connected properly. See the below image: Then close the command prompt.” i dont get any response.. what do i do?

    1. Hi Lnez.

      You are the only one person who finds this mistake. I forgot to place that image. Sorry to say that, I lost that image and I’m unable to get that image.

      By the way, coming to your issue:

      You are not getting any response means you are doing something wrong. Please verify the below suggestions.

      1. Check whether the USB is connected properly (Try to connect the device in any other usb ports).

      2. Did you installed the android_winusb.inf driver? Please check it. If you not installed it, please read the above instructions and install it. After installation just restart your PC.


      1. Hi Akhil, I’ve tried everything you said but its still not working *sigh* i really want to upgrade my xp to jelly bean

      2. uhm it says ” ” what does that mean? what do i do, i’ve waited for more than 20mins..



    1. Hi VISAKH.

      I think, this is happened because of some issues in the kernel file or the ROM files. My suggestion is to download all the files again and repeat the whole process/steps once again.


  91. I can’t connect my ray to pc in fastboot mode. when i connect to pc says there was no driver on ur fastboot device…contact ur device manufacturer. If i manually pont to google usb driver says acces deny. what can i do now? please help me.

  92. hi Akhil
    I can’t install java se jdk in my xp, it says entry point not found. . .the procedure entry point regdeletekeyexa could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAP132.dll. how can I fix it? please help

    1. Hi Zisan.

      The reason for your issue is compatibility. Java 8 not supporting Windows XP. If you are advanced java developer/programmer, I can give you the solution. Because, it need some programming skill to resolve this issue.

      Otherwise, you need to install Windows 7/8 resolve this issue.


  93. hi akhil k?…plz help i cant find sony fastboot intrface on my window xp sp3?…i already download fastboot driver povided by sony but every the i plug my ray to fastboot mode it always appear on flashtool that device connected flash mode…plz help i cant use my loptop for installing this rom…

    But now, I can’t add new contact on my phone, could you please help for this issue?


  99. Hi Akhil
    In Bootloader Unlocking mode i finished everything while trying the following step i am not getting response from my mobile
    Enter fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version, and verify that you get a response back (for example “0.3”). This means your device is connected properly.

    Warning! If you perform this step, you will unlock the boot loader. This may void your warranty and/or any warranty from your operator. If you still want to unlock the boot loader of your device, enter fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0xKEY, where KEY is the unlock boot loader key you got in the beginning of this instruction. The boot loader should now be successfully unlocked.

    Its simply showing .
    What can i do for this?

    1. Hi.

      This is a driver issue. Install the drivers in the flashtool folder in C drive on your PC.

  110. Hi,

    After the step one, I exactly did what you say, “Then, Go to Android SDK>platform-tools> and press and hold shift button on free space and right click and select “open command window here”. Then copy fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version to the command prompt and verify that you get a response back (for example “0.3″). This means your device is connected properly. See the below image: Then close the command prompt.” but after i paste “fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version” my phone doesn’t answer to me and i can’t get any response. What can I do? I did everything what you say, never miss something.
