(Backup your apps for safety)
Firstly, you have to download the package below,
It contains all the files required to install X-Reality Engine on your Xperia.
1. This is not a flashable zip.
2. You'll have to download the Zip file, extract its contents to some location.
3. Using any file manager, copy the contents to the correct folders as given in the Zip. (Root access required)
& set permision, rw-rw-rw- .
4. The new Movies App has also been included.
5. The name in the settings still shows up as Bravia Engine 2, But this is X-Reality Engine, i am yet to decompile our settings.apk and make changes. (Exams!! )
6.Add these lines to your Build.prop file which can be found at /System/build.prop
X-Reality:
# X-Reality
ro.service.swiqi2.supported = true
persist.service.swiqi2.enable = 1
ro.service.swiqi3.supported = true
persist.service.swiqi3.enable = 1

7. Reboot.
8. If successful, you should see a Bravia Engine 2 option in the Display section.


To test if this works or not, Take any screenshot of a vibrant image before and after X-Reality Engine, and compare the changes in a PC, or on your mobile with X-Reality Engine OFF.

Yup, that's right. It will be better if you use es file manager for doing this, as it had automatic permission management. This does not require your phone to have CWM! You have to manually extract each file and copy to its specified folder on phone.. Cheers!


EDIT: The permision setting has to be set only through your Android!

The space frankly doesn't matter.
Have you copied all the files to the required folders as put in the ZIP file?
If so, check to see if you have set permissions.
If yes, then turn mobile bravia engine off, and take a screenshot of any VIBRANT image, then turn Bravia Image on, and take the screenshot of the same, then view them both on a computer. You should see the difference.
Ill demonstrate with your own screenshot.
