Hello Friends, a few months ago I have written How to get Samsung Galaxy S4 looks on Android phones. Now similarly many users requested the same tutorial for getting Sony Xperia Looks. So in this post, I will guide you on how to get Sony Xperia looks on any Android device.

Warning:-

  • These methods which are illustrated below works perfectly fine. but before trying anything take a full backup of your phone using a custom recovery. So that in case of any problem or failure you have the option to revert back.
  • Before flashing or copying files to system ROM check the empty space on system ROM. If you do not have enough space, then please don’t flash the file. You can check free space on system ROM using Titanium Backup.
