Re: Confirmed List/ Frequently Asked Questions
The Xperia Z/ZL has a White Balance setting. Not contrast/brightness, but saturation/hue.

True. Looking at the kernel sources seems like gamma, contrast, sharpness is hardcoded in the display's driver. It can be adjusted but you need to do it by precompiling your own kernel.

Rooting?
I have some questions about rooting, if anyone could help (complete Android noob, never used it before) it would hugely appreciated.

1) As I understand it, Sony is very helpful for this sort of thing, but if I were to root it (which I have never done), and bricked it, would I be able to unbrick it?

2) If I can't unbrick it, can Sony repair it for me, and will it be free if in warranty?

3) If I buy a 32GB microSD card, would I be able to play games off it, or would they have to be on the internal memory?

4) If I root, does it voids my warranty permanently, can Sony find out if I have?

5) Can I unroot it should anything happen, and unvoid the warranty?

6) Do I have to root to apply a custom ROM like CM10?

7) Would it be worth rooting to get the complete stock Android experience?

8) Would the UK version of the XZ come with a locked bootloader, and if so do I have to unlock it to root, and would that void my warranty?

9) If the bootloader is unlocked, do I need to root to get a custom ROM?

10) Do I need to root in order to get a GBA emulator on it?

Thanks so much, complete Android noob here, as said previously, really anxious that I'll ruin my first big purchase.

In most cases you would be able to unbrick it by for example just re-flashing your/a ROM (ROM = CM/ParanDroid etc..)

Sony can fix everything, but the chance is 99% that you need to pay if they find out it's because of root.

Not sure yet, normally it shouldn't be a problem.

It does void your warranty yes.

Yes you are able to unroot and most of the times you should be able to hide that you ever rooted the device.

Uhm a bit tricky question. But I do think that you need root when you use CWM(ClockworkMod Recovery) to flash your device. I don't think you need root when you use Odin.(Not sure about Mobile Odin)

Hmmmmm, that's not really a question I can answer. (But when you're a complete Android "noob"). You don't really need the root. Although some programs require a rooted device.
