Default App Ops on Z1

Those who are using 4.3, try using App Ops to tame the battery hungry apps from causing wakelocks and having unnecessary control over your personal data.

It'll probably be hidden but there's nothing the Android peeps can't solve right?

Use this or any other App Ops starter to access the hidden menu.

I have tried couple of these appops and non worked for me, when I open the app it just shuts by itself. Do you access it through the app itself or from somewhere else, am I missing something here??

I tried it on both my xperia Z1 and my xperia tablet Z, and they both do the same thing. I'm guessing sony took it out for their 4.3 update.

Sony patched it up like Google did on 4.4.

Sorry guys, I just assumed it would work like it does on my other devices. I updated to 4.3 myself today. No luck. Root needed.

I'm not on 290 right now, but if Sony patched it the same way that Google did, it's not possible to open the App Ops activity at all anymore.

XDA article: Source Code Commits in Android 4.4.2 KOT49H Reveal Flash SMS Attack Fix and App Ops Removal

Google code commit: android / platform/packages/apps/Settings / 37f06a4^! / .

Yes, the article refers to 4.4.2, but that doesn't mean Sony didn't incorporate it into their 4.3 release.

Not working. No app will work unless we're rooted.
