Hello,

Today I present to you multiuser support for our Z1 on .108 firmware!



Requirements:
Root
Recovery
Superuser mod (not sure if that's needed, but better be safe than sorry)

Additionally I made the minimum screen brightness even lower than stock as it was a bit too bright for me at night.

Just flash the zip in recovery and reboot. If you want to test it on some other firmware or device then make sure to make a backup!

Enjoy!

Restored the navbar

I'd like to thank my friend Dominik Lisiecki that basically made it happen as he did all of the compiling and recompiling for me as I have no access to the PC now.
Dzięki stary, jak wspominałem - stawiam ci browara. :P

Thumbs up
Hi olokos,
I think there a very simple way to enable the Multiusers functionality in this device, and i already used it and worked perfectly.
(My device is sony xperia z1, android 4.4.4, stock rom, rooted and deodexed):

Step 1: Install GravityBox Module (last version).
Step 2: Enable Lock Screen Rotation : go to the GravityBox settings menu then under Status bar tweaks --> QuickSettings Management then enable the "lock screen rotation".
Step 3: add this line to your "build.prop" (or use any build.prop editor from the play store):
Code:
fw.max_users=4
Note: add the above line under the "ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES" group codes in the build.prop, and don't forget to check the same permissions for the "build.prop" as before.
Step 4: REBOOT.

After that you will see a new entry in your system setting called "users" which you can add and/or edit your user profiles.
And when you rotate your lock screen you will see all your profiles to be changed directly from the lock screen.
Enjoy

@baha76_s thank you. I'll enable lockscreen rotation later, without gravitybox as I prefer not to use xposed as I think that it does make issues.
It's good to know you can also do this via build.prop
