Talking [Q] Something for Newbes :)

Hey wonder if there is a giud and stuff for newbes
I have recently changed my phone from a Icrap to Sony Xperia Z1.
Was so tired of Apple that they shall decide everything that you are allowed to do so i changed.

Now i have rooted my Z1 and want to find out how to Change stuff on the Z1.

Things like GUI, tweeaks like fullscreen disable and enable stuff.

Much of the stuff in here i dont understand and i am scarde to try to do stuff because of my lack of knowledg.
I have downgraded my Z1 and then rooted it and then flashed it to newest Firmware again but that was a guide so.

And then to do all of this tings do you need to have win 7 or win xp?
I use windows 8 and hopefully everything supports that

Cheers Stian

look at the top of the general thread, there is a HUGE thread on everything for new comers, updating, backup flashing new fw etc...

as for cistumizations, look for xposed framework, it requires root and lets you install addons that can modify your device a lot, the app has his own repository of mods you can browse, pretty neat. i use mostly gravitybox and "xperia long press" for quick access to wifi and BT menu from the drawer.

With SEUS, flashtool and Pc companion there isn't much you can do to totally brick the phone. I played around, bricked it a couple of times and generally changed things until the phone both worked and became the way I want.
If it's broke, use a hammer. If that fails, you're not using a big enough hammer.

As guys said - you have bunch of threads and "how to" guides.
If you still don't know to do something send PM to someone who knows or just tag that person here and he'll see your question.
