  2. You must run on latest Xperia Build 16.0.B.2.16 (Any version either Western or Eastern) .
  3. Now Download Xperia C Deodexer, which is a zip file which must be extracted first in the place you can remember. Download Link : Xperia C Build 16.0.B.2.16 Deodexed Zip
  4. Last but not the least, one must check that Bluestacks is not running on your pc. To check it one can just open task manager and kill the bluestack app if running.

  2. Extract the downloaded Zip folder and open it. It will have two things as can be seen in the image xc deodexer
  3. Place the xc_stock_deodexer folder in the direct SD Card of Xperia C. Be sure you have placed all the files to the SD Card only.
  4. Now simply run the XC deodexer and proceed as per the instructions in the app and  and if you get popup on your phone asking for Root Permissions then simply tap on grant! And thats it! Here starts the deodexing of the stock ROM of Xperia C.
  5. Wait until your phone restarts automatically. Do not unplug the phone until it restarts or the program closes.

hi Somesh,

I am a beginner so please don’t mind if my question sound stupid.
Your step says: “Now Download Xperia C Deodexer, which is a zip file which must be extracted first in the place you can remember.”
Where is this to be downloaded, PC or Phone?
Which software I need to connect and command this operation through PC?
Bluestack is it BtvStack ?

Do i need to change my recovery mode or stock may do to flash the zip ? . . . Cause changing recovery will have a lot of work cause i have s1 boot verison .68 . . And dont have pc to change it to .6 or .13.

Thanks . . .im new with this phone.

    Somesh Chaudhary - April 29, 2016

    So better first install custom recovery! But having Computer to change bootversion is compulsory! Without changing the bootversion do not proceed to install CWM on Xperia C else you will Hard brick your device!

    Somesh Chaudhary - October 24, 2015

    It takes around 10 minutes for first boot up, therefore if it is taking more time then simply flash backup and then follow the same procedure using CWM method!

    Hold Volume Up and Power Button Until Phone goes off and as soon as it goes off! Just Press on Volume Down Button such that you are connected to PC via USB! This will boot you into flashing mode! And this time flash B.2.16 firmware and thereafter Deodex using CWM firmware! This will help!
