The Sony Xperia Z2 has ever been one of the Sony Android flagship devices released in 2014 but it then stopped Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. That’s a pity for Z2 users. However, there is a great news for them as you can taste the Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS features. Wonder How! The Sony Xperia Z2 has chance with the help of the Resurrection Remix 7.1.2 Nougat ROM. Your device will be able to taste all new Nougat features and its performance and reliability over stock Android will increase. Below there is a step-by-step guide to flash the custom ROM on your Smartphone.
