    HOW TO INSTALL/FLASH/UPDATE XPERIA Z5 NOUGAT ROM UPDATE (ANDROID 7.0 AOSP ROM):

    1. First make sure that the bootloader is unlocked before updating the Nougat ROM to Xperia Z5. If not then unlock it first and come back.
    2. Then download all the images. BOOT, SYSTEM, USERDATA, RECOVERY image and Nougat GApps.
    3. Boot into the recovery image:
      fastboot reboot recovery
    4. Clean/Wipe data factory reset, Cache partition, Dalvik Cache partition from the recovery:
      – Here is a guide explaining how to wipe data using TWRP recovery.

      This will delete all your data on your phone. IGNORE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO OR IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THIS. You may consider complete backup of your phone data or take a NANDROID backup of the current ROM.

    5. Reboot to bootloader again and flash the BOOT, SYSTEM and USERDATA partitions using fastboot:
      fastboot flash -S256 boot boot.img
      fastboot flash -S256 userdata userdata.img
      fastboot flash -S256 system system.img

      DO NOT EXIT FROM FASTBOOT/BOOTLOADER MODE YET.

    6. Again boot into the new recovery image to flash the GApps:
      fastboot boot twrp-E6653.img

      This will boot into the new recovery image. Enable changes if it asks by swiping to right.

    7. Copy the GApps to the phone using MTP mode.
    8. Flash the Google Apps package using the TWRP recovery and then reboot to system.
