Prompt [Guide][How-To] Xperia M to 4.4.3 and look like Xperia Z2

Note: Only for Build number 15.4.A.0.23 I'll upload for 15.4.A.1.9 soon ASAP.

Hit Thanks if its helpful for you



Requirements:
1. Must be Rooted
2. SuperUser Mod installed (if not then check its for XM 4.3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMNdJEv3VZI)
3. Deodexed Rom (if not then check its for XM 4.3 download this http://d-h.st/VWr and flash in XM 4.3 )

For full transparent Home and Z2 SystemUI Notification bar Follow these steps





BEFORE INSTALLING
please edit your build.prop and flash zip
Add this line at last
dalvik.vm.verify-bytecode=false

Download and Flash: http://d-h.st/boA

How to install :
- Reboot Into recovery
- Wipe dalvik cache
- Flash MOD
- Reboot

How to install Manually :
- Extract the zip
- Copy all files to system
- Set permissions 644 (rw-r--r--)
- Move to system/app
- Reboot

Features :
- Initial release for all Xperia's Stock Jelly Bean 4.3
- Enable Gradient Navigationbar & Statusbar on Homescreen & SONY Media Applications
- Enable Gradient Statusbar on Lockscreen
- Enable Home Auto rotation
- Full screen Home
- Changed AppTray Background (AppDrawer Background) from 100% to 35%
- Enable space clear all recent (TASK Killer)
- Transparent
- Enable Runtime Theme Accent Color
- Look like Xperia Z2 Original
- The distance between the Quick Settings icon was extended


And for Z2 Live Wallpaper

push ExperienceFlow2LiveWallpaper.apk file in /system/app and add permission as rw-r--r--
then restart your device




Also push Setting.apk in /system/app and add permission as rw-r--r--


for show KitKat Easter eggs while taping on android version push framework.jar firstly in /system then set permission rw-r--r-- then move to /system/framework then replace.
after that your device will restart and showing android is upgrading wait till it's done then normally install signed-KitKatEasterEggHDPI.apk and you done
go and tap on android version it'll show KitKat style.


Ques. My Android version is still showing as 4.3?
Ans.. Open root explorer and navigate to /system and edit build.prop be careful while editing
change ro.build.version.release=4.3
to ro.build.version.release=4.4.3
now you done and got a KitKat Style from Z2


framework-res.apk is no needed to modify, I uploaded for further help.


thanks @ansebovi for Z2 offline charging Animation to all 4.3 XM/XMD
