How To Install Android 5.0 Lollipop on Sony Xperia Z [unofficial build]


Recently Google released a new version mobile Android operating system called Lollipop. This new Android Lollipop update brought a nice range of features including a minimal interface called martial design. But it is not very easy to try this officially at this time. As far Google has rolled in to just a few devices even many flagship devices are waiting for update. But XDA developers are not careful about what is being pushed officially. If they do not find anything official, they rely on self-confidence and get things done. Thanks to XDA’s member thomas1991_12, we have now an unofficial Android 5.0 Lollipop Xperia Z build.

I have no information when Sony is rolling out Lollipop update for Xperia Z but I am excited to share a third party build. This phone boasts a thin and beautiful design offering you a nice experience. With Lollipop features, you can enhance the usability more. However keep in mind that since this is an initial release, this build contains some bugs. The camera app is not working even RIL (Calls + data) is buggy. We do not ask you to try this for daily drive. But we hope that the developer will iron out all issues soon from this Xperia Z Android 5.0 Lollipop build.
