Bug 1 : "Powersave Bias" under Xperia Z Settings gives a Force Close.
Bug 2 : Photosphere in camera gives a Force Close.
Bug 3 : Editing a photo causes a gallery force close.
Bug 4 : Google voice search gives a force close. Cannot activate voice search anywhere. Not even in Google Now.

That's it for now. Terrific port. Almost perfect! Great job!

OK. Thanks. Seems to be working fine on mine but I'm not using the only I uploaded. Looking into it now
