Question what about other camera apps ?
I unlocked relocked boot loader... now I am with "official" 4.4.4 kitkat via PC Companion (just to try it but tomorrow I will install again Carbon or another custom ROM) ...

The quality on my Z2 when I take pictures is not the same... not bad BUT NOT THE SAME , so X Reality is gone

What about other apps from the market ? Is there a camera app that can help with this "problem" , I mean to increase in a way the quality for pictures especially when I zoom ? Anyone who noticed a difference ? Please someone with screenshots

For me it was the algorithms that had gone when unlocking my z1 and the Bravia engine still working... Your pictures will not be the same in my opinion when unlocking

So,in a few words,unlocking your bootloader of an Xperia Z1 Compact will make you lose your DRM keys forever even if you restore TA Partition.
What will this lead us to no one seems to be able to answer exactly though. Lots of conflicting info on this thread. Im not sure what right or wrong.
It seems that the sure thing is that you wont be able to restore your phone to its original state if you re lock the bootloader..right?

Same situation is on Z1 while unlocking BL on 4.4.2 - DRM keys are intact.

Not sure if anything has changed since then, but my bootloader is locked and I don't have the following line: com.sonymobile.drm.ui
So what's the situation now? Sorry for reviving the post. :P

Compare with another Sony phone with X-reality, it will NOT work without DRM Keys, or try to send an MMS with your location. If it says "service unavailable" or other message meaning the phone couldn't locate you; you have no DRM Keys.
