Things to remember before installing the custom ROM
- Purex Android v5.1.1 Lollipop custom ROM has to be installed on the
Sony Xperia Z2 (aka Sirius) model only; if tried on other devices, it
might get bricked [To check your device model: Go to Settings
>> About phone >> model number]
- Though installing custom ROM improves the device’s performance and
UI experiences, it makes the company warranty void and Sony will no
longer be liable to provide updates in future [users can restore
warranty by flashing the device with stock-ROM].
- Make sure the device is rooted before going forward for custom ROM installation. [Read More: How to Unlock Bootloader on Xperia Devices – Official Sony Video Tutorial]
