Xperia Tipo Tools: Multitool for the Sony Xperia Tipo

You may remember that a couple of months ago, the Sony Xperia Tipo received an unofficial CyanogenMod 11 port, supporting the fact that even small phones can have Kitkat too. Of course, what’s the use of such a port if you don’t have your Xperia Tipo set up and ready to take a bite of the Kitkat bar in the first place? Good thing for you if this sounds a bit too familiar to you, as XDA Forum Member AlexDroid00 has developed a handy multi-tool called Xperia Tipo Tools.

The aptly named utility packs in some very useful functions, both for new owners of the Xperia Tipo, and for those who have been playing with it for some time. Its functions include:

  • Rooting your phone
  • Making a logcat
  • Flash kernels
  • Install drivers for fastboot and flashmode
  • Change the language of your device
  • Change the boot animation
  • Check for and apply updates

AlexDroid00 chose to categorize the tool’s functions as primary, secondary and universal, but all of them should work just fine with your Xperia Tipo. Additionally, the tool comes both in English and Italian, and is already version three. It must be noted that as of right now, the root function only works in Italian. So if you can’t read the language, you either have to wait for a future release which may include English as well perhaps other languages, or use Google translate.

If you would like to give Xperia Tipo Tools a go, head over to the original thread for more information.
