So when I first got my Z1C I unlocked bootlocker and installed a new ROM. Now I really want 120fps recording! I did not make a backup of my original ROM, how can I refresh my device and then install this mod (if possible)

Cheers!

Thumbs up
Deodexing does not work with version 6a of the tool. Always bootloops; good thing I did a full nandroid backup beforehand. Locked bootloader, dual recovery + root, maybe that's why?
Anyway, confirming the 4k mod and timeshift video both work without deodexing.

4. Open the Xperia Xposed app thing go to System, enable it and checklist the Super User Mode, reboot.
5. Download the flashable zip, extract it, and install SuperCamera.apk in the folder priv-app.
6. Reboot just in case, then voila.

The 4K Recording doesn't work though, so don't try pressing it, it force closes the Camera App.

So i've done this method on my Z1C and it has given me the TimeShift Video but the recording is no where near as smooth as what i've seen of other peoples on youtube, to be honest it looks no different to the slow motion option in the movie editor. What have i done wrong?
Here's a video i've uploaded
Compared to this one someone else has done

Dunno dude, I didn't make this mod. And I haven't compared it yet with others too but yeah, doesn't seem as smooth as other phones 😕

Edit: I think it's because we're missing some files that need to be pushed into system. Can somebody try to this manually and compare the result?

Timeshift works great on the z1c. Take a shot of moving cars and you will see how well it's working.

Very dark video
Thanks for your guide, everything works but there is one problem - the timeshift video is very dark which makes it almost unusable, you can't see anything. I have doedexed stock rom 4.4.4 on Z1Compact.

I presume you talk about serajr Xperia Xposed in point 3.
After soft reboot my systemGUI went into FC loop, I could only press OK. I had to restore system from backup.
I am on Z1C KK 4.4.4, 108.
Maybe I missed a step, I didn't wipe Dalvik, not camera data, but I didn't reach that far as flashing zip managing 4K camera.

I write to want warn anyone that you better have backup before going into game.
For me it was only 1 hour work plus lost 2 weeks history of SMS and call log. .Could be worse.
I will read more and give another try to it. If folk says it works on odexed stock ROM - it should for me, too.
