NOTE :- Above zip file is not a ROM, it is only a DeOdex for 6.2.B.0.211 Jelly Bean Odex stock ROM. Flashing of this zip file will convert all “odex-files” to “deodex-files” in these folders /system/app and /system/framework

  • Reboot your Xperia S, SL into CWM recovery.
  • Please make sure that /system partition is unmounted or you will end up getting error 7.

To check :- Go to “mounts and storage” > Check the first option, it should be “unmount / system”. If it shows “mount / system” tap on in to make it as “unmount / system”.

  • Wipe the dalvik cache.
  • Now flash the “DeodexSonyJB_211.zip” file in recovery.
  • Reboot your device.

All done :) , now you have running DeOdex Xperia S, SL 6.2.B.0.211 Jelly Bean ROM. To check go to “system/app” and see whether you have any “odex-files” there or not. They must have been deleted. If any files remains there, do let us know in comments, something must have gone wrong.

    thanks for responding, but question since they are two different concepts that bring many ROM and wanted to know if this is deodex and zipaling but enormously grateful.

      the above DeOdex zip just make your ROM DeOdex. No Zipalign.
      We are just making our ROM DeOdex, as the above posted zip file is not the ROM, it’s just a DeOdex making zip file.

        Hello…can i deodex my stock rom 6.2.b.0.200 generic or only works with the .211?
        Thanks

        • Anurag Kumar July 30, 2013 at 10:14 pm - Reply

          well first, lower firmware JB .200 is not in priority list of any developer to make a deodex zip especially for it…when a new jb .211 firmware is available, update it to first.

          above deodex zip works only on jb .211. If you want to try it on jb .200, make a nandroid backup first then try…we are not responsible for any damage…

      No only jb .211 is needed , it is the latest firmware and making files for .200 is not a priority…please update your phone there is a link in post for updating to jb .211
