Cyanogenmod 10 for Sony Xperia Ray [Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean]

According to Google, phones that are capable of running ICS (Android 4.0) can run Jelly Bean too. Same is the case with Sony Xperia Ray ST18i which has 1 GHz single core processor & already got official ICS firmware update from Sony. It means that Ray has full filled all the requirements needed to run all new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But Sony had announced that they won’t be providing any latest Android update for 2011 Xperias as they are more focused on newly launched devices.

Now there is no need to worry about Official Jelly Bean update to come out. Custom ROMs are always there to serve you latest Android versions with better quality. The most famous custom ROM Cyanogenmod 10 based on Android 4.1 is now made available for Xperia Ray. All thanks goes to FreeXperia Project team for bringing out the same. CM10 offers many more customization features than the pure Android which lets you to change every aspect of your device. There might be some bug though which will be fixed in near released.

You are not far from the Cyanogenmod 10 to make it run on your device. Just follow some simple steps given below & you’ll be enjoying Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on your Xperia Ray.

Disclaimer: The Procedure described in this article are risky & can cause damage to your device. You should not try to attempt this if you are unaware of these things. Please follow this guide completely at your own risk. If any damage happened to your device while following this tutorial, neither we nor developer should be held responsible for it.

cyanogenmod 10 for sony xperia ray android 4 1 1 jelly bean0(Attention!) The guide given here is applicable only for Sony Xperia Ray ST18i/ST18a. DON’T try it on any other device or it may result in undesired outcomes.

Things to do before installing a Custom ROM:

  • Your device must be charged up to minimum 70% battery level.
  • This procedure involves wiping data therefore for the safe side, it is recommended to backup all your essential data such as Contacts, SMS/MMS, Apps, APNs etc.
  • Enable USB debugging mode on your phone.
  • Ensure that you have unlocked the bootloader of your device.
  • Custom recovery like Clockworkmod is required to flash the Custom ROM. Follow this guide to install CWM on your phone using RecoverX tool (If youve already installed CWM then you can skip this step & go ahead).

Procedure to Upgrade Sony Xperia Ray with Cyanogenmod 10 Custom ROM:

Note: Sony Xperia Ray is code named as Urushi, therefore while downloading the ROM package from a list of Xperias, lookout for the same name & download that file.

  • Since Google Apps are not there in the ROM by default, you have to flash them manually. Download GApps from the link given below.
  1. GApps for Jelly Bean
  • Connect your device to the Computer using a USB cable. Enable mass storage mode & copy/transfer ROM package & Google Apps file to the external memory slot on your device.
  • Now switch off the phone & boot into the Clockworkmod Recovery. For doing the same, press Volume rockers few times while the phone restarts.
  • After getting into the recovery, make a nandroid backup of your current ROM so that it can be restored in case of failure. To do so, Highlight backup and restore option in the recovery menu, select it & then choose backup to start the backup process.
  • Select wipe data/factory reset & subsequently wipe cache partition to wipe the data & caches respectively from the phone memory.
  • Now select install zip from sdcard & then on next screen select, choose zip from sdcard. It will show you the files & folders located on the SD card of your device. Navigate to the ROM file, select it using power button (unless youre using touch CWM) & confirm the installation by pressing on Yes. This should start installing the ROM.
  • As soon as ROM installation finishes, again select install zip from sdcard followed by choose zip from sdcard. This time search for the gapps-jb-20120726-signed.zip & install it.
  • Select +++Go Back+++ to land into the main menu of recovery. There, select “power off“.
  • Up next, you need to flash kernel image required to boot CM10. For that, follow the steps mentioned in further article.
  • Download the fastboot files
  1. Fastboot Files
  • Extract the zip file, you will find four files inside the fastboot folder.
  • Open Cyanogenmod 10 ROM package, extract boot.img file (which is nothing but a kernel) to any convenient location.
  • Now move that kernel file in the fastboot folder so that now it will contain total 5 files inside.
  • On the phone (while switched off), enter into the fastboot mode. To do so,
  1. Press & hold Volume Up while connecting your phone to the PC.
  2. Open the ‘Fastboot‘ folder where the fastboot files are located.
  3. Now Open command prompt & Point its directory to the fastboot folder (OR You can do the same as: open Fastboot folder, Press & hold shift key and then right click on the free space in the same folder.When right clicked (holding shift), you’ll see Open Command window here‘ option. Click it & Command prompt will be open pointing to the Fastboot directory).

cyanogenmod 10 for sony xperia ray android 4 1 1 jelly bean1

  • Type the following command in command prompt to flash the kernel file:

fastboot flash boot boot.img

  • Restart the phone by typing “fastboot reboot” (without quotes) in command prompt.
  • Your phone may take some time to boot than the usual. This is normal & happens only for the first time after installing a new ROM. So be patient.

Tip: If you want to restore back your previous ROM, you can do this easily using restore feature available in the Clockworkmod recovery. For restoring back your previous ROM, enter into recovery mode (mentioned above). From the main menu, select Backup and Restore option & on next screen, select restore & choose the backup you would like to restore.

Voila! Android 4.1 Jelly Bean based custom ROM Cyanogenmod 10 is now up and running on your Sony Xperia Ray ST18i. Share your thoughts with us on the newly installed Jelly Bean ROM through comments. We would be glad to hear from you.

  • lyrabee

    hello viraj,
    first of all: thx for your lovely guide :)
    i already run cm9.1 on my ray for a year now and was thinking about upgrading to cm10.0, but unfortunately i’m losing a little bit of control concerning the “haves” and “not haves” of cm10.0 on the ray. nonetheless i’m finally in the mood to upgrade, but i’m not sure, if i dare to ;) so i wanted to ask you:
    - are there any severe disadvantages of cm10.0 (FXP234-CM10) compared to cm9.1 on the ray?
    - is mass storage supported “out of the box” or do i have to flash some patch? if so, where do i get it and how do i apply it?
    - should/must i update my current baseband 72? if so, to which version? i read sth about a current version 86.
    thx a lot in advance :)

      Install latest version of CWM.

  • Elena

    Hello! I have Xperia Ray and I can’t enter recovery mod. I checked with rom manager and it tells me I have installed Clockworkmod recovery, I also checked and the bootloader is unlocked and my phone is rooted, but I’ve tried several times to enter recovery mod and the phone keeps booting up normally

    • Viraj SK

      You’ll have to install a custom recovery like CWM. You can use this tool for the same: http://www.androidlegend.com/install-clockworkmod-recovery-on-any-xperia-device-using-recoverx-tool/

      • Elena

        I have already installed that and I downloaded an application (Rom manager) which confirms that it has been successfully installed. But I still cannot access the recovery mode. I even tried using the application rom manager, it has an option “Reboot into recovery” but my phone just reboots normally.

        I tried pressing continuously the volume down button while the SONY logo appears on the screen but this doesn’t help either.

  • sujoy sinha

    i have bought a Xperia J yesterday it comes with the Android Jelly bean, everything is functioning fine but i tried to download a mp3 file from a couple of sites and as soon as it started downloading it stopped automatically showing failed download. Can someone help?

    • Viraj SK

      It’s not your device’s fault. Try with different SIM card or use Wi-Fi (if available)..

    any suggestions?

    • Viraj SK

      Try to flash kernel before you flash the ROM…

      • Sasha

        Hi Viraj
        Thanks for replying.
        I already flashed the kernel after the rooting, and it didn’t help.

        • nilomoni

          try kernel fusion 5.4 .

      • Rikus

        Hi

        I flashed the kernel. Then I cannot use CWM to install ROM. I can move up and down, but cannot choose any option. Now I am stuck

  • Vishal

    Hello! I just installed and everything seems to be good so far. My only problem is that,my phone keeps on restart over and over. I have installed on Xperia Ray. Also can’t record video on 720 dpi. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

  • Eliel Lobo

    Sir Viraj, unfortunately not yet…

    When the phone is ON, I can connection and do a commands like adb shell, su, reboot…
    But, when in FASTBOOT mode I only have WAITING FOR DEVICE for all the commands.

    sorry for the questions.

    and thanks for everything so far.

    • tago tf

      use flashtool instead to flash the kernel

    • Eliel Lobo

      Sr. Viraj, I´m happy =D

      Problem [WAITING FOR DEVICE] solved:
      I used the software: FLASH TOOL to flash the kernel BOOT.img

      Now, I have the JB 4.1 in my Xperia RAY.

      =D

      Thanks for all.

      • Viraj SK

        You’re always welcome Eliel… :)

      Try with this:
      First, flash the kernel (how to? – given in the article above) and then install CM10 (unmodified zip)..

      • Eliel Lobo

        Viraj, thanks for answer..

        but, the link from ´fastboot files´ is broken.

        do you have other link?

    Good morning, i´m in step: “”◾Now select “install zip from sdcard” & then on next screen select, “choose zip from sdcard”.

    • Viraj SK

      You need to have Overclocking kernel to OC your phone. Check if CM kernel is OC enabled or not, else flash CM compatible OC kernel…

  • pratipal

  • Kaushik

    Recently, I unlocked my boot loader,rooted my phone which was on stock ICS 4.0.4 to CM10. **All thanks to your tutorial,keep up the good work**
    But to be honest, I wasn’t that impressed with the CM10. Therefore I am thinking of downgrading to ICS 4.0.4 for the time being. Since,I’m totally naive regarding all that, I would like to know if I can revert back from JB to ICS and if so how.
    Pleeeease help me out. Eagerly awaiting for your reply.

    • Viraj SK

      Don’t worry. Here is how you can downgrade your phone to ICS again: http://www.androidlegend.com/update-sony-xperia-ray-st18i-with-official-ics-4-0-4-firmware/

      • Kaushik

        Thanks a million for helping me out..I’m just curious,after using the process mentioned above, will my phone still be boot unlocked,rooted?? or will i have to repeat the methods for installing a custom ROM?

        • Viraj SK

          Yes, it will remain unlocked & rooted. No need to repeat those things again…

        • Kaushik

          Thanks a trillion dude..i successfully downgraded to ICS..am so happy..Will definitely ping you if i need more help..really loved your help..cheers :)

        • Viraj SK

          Yeah, Sure..

  • oomjcv

    Hi, A few months ago I was running stock ICS on my Ray, I wanted to give out CM10 a go and tried installing it on my phone, but I just couldn’t get it going. After many hours of failing I thought I’d try CM9.1, – which I got working rather easily and has been working perfectly ever since.

    So today I thought I’ll try installing CM10 again, and I again encountered the same problem. After installing the rom along with GApps and then flashing the kernel, it simply bootloops. I can’t even get into CWM – once the LED turns pink I press the volume rockers, the LED then turns blue and the phone hangs for a while before restarting. If I don’t press the volume rockers it basically does the same, just bootlooping.

    Any idea what the problem might be or what I’ve missed?

    • Viraj SK

      Flash boot.img (kernel file) before flashing the ROM. It should work now and bootloops won’t occur anymore…

      • oomjcv

        Thanks for the quick reply. No luck though, once I flash the CM10 kernel I can’t get into CWM, exactly like I described in my original post.

        As far as I understand CWM is bundled with the kernel so it should work right? My guess is that for some the reason the CM10 kernel isn’t working like it should on my phone. Any ideas?

        • Viraj SK

          Have you experienced the same situation while flashing any other ROMs?

        • oomjcv

          The only other ROM’s I’ve tried are CM9.1 and both stock GB and ICS, none of which exhibited the same problem.

          I’ve also tried multiple different nightly builds of CM10 and had the same problem everytime (don’t know the kernel versions).

        • oomjcv

          Ok, I got it working. I used a kernel from Lupus and am now running CM10.

        • Viraj SK

          That’s great. Cheers.. :)

  • Bexxalexa

    Hi! I’ve been reading through the information given here repeatedly for a few days trying to figure out what I was doing wrong because no matter what I did, I always ended up with a “status 7″ error. After a lot of searching and experimentation I came to the conclusion that it’s necessary to flash the kernel before the system if you’re doing this on a “vanilla” rooted and unlocked device.. If its the first time you’re installing a custom rom.. I finally, after lot of headache and reverting back to stock to rescue an unbootable device several times, got it working that way. Maybe it would be prudent to make a note of this and save people some annoyances.

  • ellynepain

    • Viraj SK

      Download the fastboot files
      Fastboot Files
      Extract the zip file, you will find four files inside the fastboot folder.

      1) Find these lines in above guide & download fastboot files.
      2) Extract them.
      3) Enable USB debugging option in your phone & connect it to the PC.
      4) Now, open command prompt pointing to “Fastboot” folder and type this command: adb reboot recovery
      5) That’s it..

      Note:

    Hi, I’ve done as it written, but my devices failes to install zip from

    is Urushi…
    What should I do? i tride 205-cm and 206-cm also…

  • Nabeel

    I dont understand what u r saying. U mean when u copy the two zips to sd card?
    Try restart the whole process. my SD card also went dead!. dont panic if it happens. format it through mobile its gonna be ok again. these two zips can kill the sd cards if you try to access them through PC.
    Did you backed up the stock ROM through ClockworkMod? you can restore to Stock version if the instalation of CM10 fails. I failed the first time too. My screen went black on restart. I restored to stock Rom through the start of the screen when u keep pressing the vol up n go in to the boot screen menu. after the restore I restarted the mobile, copied the two files again, and tried again by installing both zips at the same time through boot screen.
    hope I’m helping
    remember use the latest CM10. I guess its
    FXP203-cm-10-20130119-UNOFFICIAL-urushi
    Warning!
    You gonna miss the Camera features of Sony! they key sucsess of this mobile!
    Sony Album for music will vanish!
    No BE engine! means dim screen!
    ——-
    Im thinking to move back to stock. if I do
    I can upgrade to Ice cream sandwich through PC Companion
    I can install Pimp My Rom through Play store. through it u can get BE2 engine, new Sony Album, Brightest screen, Overclock ability, get rid of Bloatware (The apps u dont want) and all the Sony features.
    Only advantage in CM10 Rom is that it gives u better music sound quality and a sound manager. I dont find this rom intersesting anymore as all the Sony featurese vanished.
    Pardon my English…..its not my mother Language….so who gives a S*&t!!
    ____________________________
    1. I recommend you to download the stock Rom
    ST18i_4.1.A.0.562_(1252-5332).rar
    its 202MB file u can google n download
    2. flash your mobile again through “Flash Tool” /install the stock Rom
    3. Download bussy box through Play Store and install it
    4. Install ClockWorkMod (Google it)
    5. Restart mobile and keep pressing vol + and back up your stock ROM
    6. Then give it a try (I recommend not to as u gonna miss sony features and its gonna be a made in china like mobile….stick to Sony!!!!)

    Ok. I downloaded Pimp my ROM from android market. I had no idea what it was. then I realise its a control of Star Ship Enterprise from Star Trek. :
    but I poke around here and there and somethings got working some made the mobile crash on boot. it offers the Bravia 2 Engine, XLoud from sony and Sonymusic Library. all three made the mobile crash on boot. then I just simply restarted mob.
    Camera Sucks! as its more than half screen view only. How can I get full screen view?
    if you can please advise on the following
    1.Camera full view on sceen (no buttons ^%*&^%*&)
    2.Bravia/Bravia2 as I got low brightness like old X10i
    3.I miss the Sony Music Library
    can u come up with a soloution please?

    After sacrificing thses 3 things in return I get a super duper fast mobile I never used before. JellyBeans……Yummy!!!! cpu 130+ -1100+MHZ. i dont wanna burn it so can u pleae also tell the recommended speed of CPU. CM10 is amazing!!!!! Colors on screen are beautiful but low brightness.

        (status 6). Please help me with this problem.

        • Viraj SK

          Status 6 error occurs due to invalid updater-script. Make sure you’ve edited the file using Notepad++ only and deleted the required 3 lines without leaving any comma / space in the script.
          Let me know if it fixes your problem..

        • harish kumar

          after deleting 3 lines the script is like this
          assert();
          mount(“yaffs2″, “MTD”, “system”, “/system”);
          package_extract_file(“system/bin/backuptool.sh”, “/tmp/backuptool.sh”);
          package_extract_file(“system/bin/backuptool.functions”, “/tmp/backuptool.functions”);
          i tried to install with this script. Now i am getting
          set_perm: some changes failed
          E:Error in /sdcard/FXP151-cm-10-20121214-UNOFFICIAL-urushi.zip

    • Praveenkumar Chengi

       I faced the same problem and it got resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the latest android sdk.

      • Eliel Lobo

        I have the same problem in FASTBOOT: “Waiting for device”

        My windows device manager see the phone like:
        Android Phone -> Sony ADB Interface

        I have the Flashtool installed.

        what do you uninstalled and reinstalled in SDK??

    • CWY

      you can go to “device manager”
      and refresh the S1 fastboot drive
      then you can solve the problem
