Installing Z1 Over Dual Recovery
How do you install this ROM given that the dual recovery is registering the device (Z1) as a Z Ultra?

EDIT: Was able to flash this ROM successfully by first flashing the RevolutionROM Kernel.

Reboots after a few seconds
Does anyone know what's going with the ROM since it reboots after a few seconds of starting up?

Please read. It says

OS

Android™ 4.4 (KitKat®)

If you mean can we get 4.4 on our devices, well Sony have already promised it, so yes!

EDIT
Apologies to OP for replying to this OT, I didn't realise this spam was in this thread.
