The flagship smartphone of Sony, Xperia Z2, is now commercially available and can now be purchased from retailers as well as Sony Mobile Stores in the UK. The premium waterproof smartphone is equipped with a range of new software features and apps.
These premium apps can now be installed on the fourth and fifth generation smartphones of Google – Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. This is majorly attributed to senior XDA member Jishnu Sur, who shared downloaded zip files featuring all the apps from the Xperia Z2. The app file has been taken from the system dump by CDA developer, Chainfire.
Some of the premium Sony Xperia Z2 apps are Home, Walkman – Fixed, Album, Movies, Easy Home, Notes, Sketch, Smart Connect, Social Life News, Xperia Lounge, Social Life News, Tools Widgets, Walkman Widget, Weather Widgets, Sony Xperia Z2 LWP, Calender, Sony Select and Facebook Integration.
The key points to be taken care of while downloading these apps are the Nexus phones are required to be rooted and should be custom recovery pre-installed, must have a Android version 4.4 or above, and have nearly 250MB of free system partition space.
Here is the list of steps to install the apps – 1) Download the Xperia Z2 apps, 2) Transfer the downloaded zip from computer to internal storage of the phone, 3) Reboot the phone into recovery mode, 4) Install the zip and perform Wipe cache-Dalvik cache, 5) Restart the phone.
