Xperia Z1 Compact CM13 (Z1c codename: Amami) is a CyanogenMod custom ROM based on Android 6.0.1 built by developer derf elot. In addition to this ROM there we have the Lineage OS 14.1 for Xperia Z1 Compact. There is a high possibility that this ROM may be in ALPHA stage (with many more BUG than you can imagine). Please proceed with CAUTION if you understand what am I talking of and don’t forget to have a complete backup of your data and current ROM, otherwise don’t blame me if something goes wrong.
– TWRP 3.0.2
– CM 13 download link [Select the latest cm-13.0 ROM]
– Android 6.0 GApps download link
Copy the ROM and GApps zip file to your phone (By using a USB cable or via adb push command).
Enter into recovery mode by pressing your device specific key combinations. Or else if you are on a pc with USB driver and adb installed, then type the following command:
$ adb reboot recovery
Wipe system partition, cache and data partition. [IMPORTANT]
If you don’t know how to do this then here is how to wipe data using TWRP recovery.
This will delete all your data on your phone. You may consider backing up your phone data or take a nandroid backup. Here is how to take NANDROID backup using TWRP recovery.
Select the Install Zip from SDcard option.
Select the Android Marshmallow ROM zip file for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and let the installation complete and then reboot and then flash the GApps package and reboot to enjoy CyanogenMod 13 on the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (codename: Amami).
