The only factor stopping me is loss of DRM stuff (though i unlocked it long back and relocked it ).
Can anyone confirm this !

Updated : To check for bionz processing...take a photo in dark room with a point source like an LED of a charger or something. Then check for the ISO...if it is anything greater than 3200(possibly 6400) then you have the BIONZ working !!

I wonder the same thing, probably ony on stock based roms tho.

Wait, pick the restore bravia option but not restore x-reality... really??
btw, maybe a rather risky way is to install a stock 4.2 rom on the Z1 then unlock the bootloader
so the camera will now break, and it wont work again without bionz (or is it??)
so restore this thing and check if the camera works
if it works, congrats
if it doesnt, it probably still not working

I already succeeded to take a photo with focus (see above my post)
Sony didn't make X-Reality for pictures and they just changed the name.
I read that in Z1 interviews.

so u are saying X-reality never exist on Z1 actually??
how come XS and XZ used to got mod for this?? My life's a lie??
(i used to flash X-reality on XS on unlock bootloaders and i'm sure it works and make difference, so how come the Z1 dont have it??)
and i think u can still focus with unlocked bootloaders
and that 6400 and 3200 iso stuff, any prove its becoz of the bionz??

I just think u break the camera on 4.2 unlock becoz it kills the bionz and it wont work without bionz back then
so maybe restoring this thing make camera works again on 4.2, thus confirm it brings the bionz back.
logically correct??

I used the following steps, from another thread, on iHackers/DoomKernel and is working perfectly. Though still wonder if Bionz is working or not!

To get Bravia Engine back on deodexed ROM :
- Just flash Restore Bravia Engine (do not flash X-Reality addon)
- Once you rebooted you'll have a "credentialmanager.service crashed" que couple of time.. Go to /system/app with an explorer and delete CredentialManagerService.apk then reboot regular way
- Once you rebooted go back into recovery and flash Restore Bravia Engine again
- Reboot and check if X-Reality/BE is ticked under setting of your phone

You must add this
ro.service.swiqi2.supported=true

persist.service.swiqi2.enable=1
lines in your build.prop and then it will work.
