  31. Hi somesh,

    Thanks for the awesome ROM, i already installed it. It works like a charm but i have one problem. When i play a game, for instance “marvel future fight” and i touch the home button by accident, and when i switch back to the game, the game gets restart again. Is there any option to make it normal? I mean, it’s like the application/game getting killed (force close) somehow when touching the home button.

    Best Regards,

    After flashing the Rom, status bar is not visible

  97. Hi fellas first reply for this time…
    Okay let’s start with user experience
    1.A more refurbished ui which I like it to my heart.
    2.The rom itself is 650mb only which is more lighter than old version of pure z3 rom.
    3.New apps and less bloatware which is a thumbs up.
    4.Battery seem to be more better than the old one.
    5.Omg the stock camera.Wow it is a new one and 10x better than the old.
    6.Tweaked settings which I like it.
    7.Init.d support which was more better.
    8.Overall it is a badass rom.

    The thing i didn’t like was system apps are outdated which I didn’t expect

    No browser.Seriously you guys are joking…

    I expect antutu score increase but nah its okay..

    All in all I’m more than satisfied..
    Thank you for the great job.
    Btw can I install pureperformance mod?Does it cause problems?

    Thumbs up fellas

  98. luridx says:

    So the one with the z2 camera, video recording won’t work. How about if you install another camera app, say lenovo snap it, will that application be able to record video? thanks!

    • Yes, it might help! Or one can have short quick fix by replacing mediacodecs.xml in etc folder with the stock ROMs xml and then installing the stock Xperia C Camera! Do try and let me know πŸ™‚

  99. Is there no way to record videos or there is another app other than z2 camera app to record videos?

  100. Minh says:

    can you make startusbar and navbar is transparent? thanks alot
