Unhappy [Q] Im bored...

Hello guys.. I'm a flashaholic.

The reason i'm here, is because i've just realized, that i haven't had my quick fix for some time now..

Everything seems so stable, except the *mic* issue, but hey, i fixed it with a hands-free.. Otherwise, i'm very happy with my phone, it works, it doesn't use up that much battery, and it doesn't crash, you can even do normal stuff to it.

But to the point.. I really, REALLY miss AOSP, especially the theming.
I can live with the occasional bugs, though i wish it could be at least somewhat stable.. *You know, im not that picky*.

But the one thing that keeps me from using AOSP; is the camera app from Sony, because i like taking pictures of my son, and the environment..
Are there any Camera app out there comparable to the Sony equivalent?

Oh, the urge..
[Current Phone]
Xperia Z2
ROM: Sony - Recovery: CWM - Kernel: Stock

[Current Tablet]
Transformer Infinity TF700T
ROM: CM11 - Recovery: Philz Touch - Kernel: CM

[Retired Phones/Tablets]
SGS3 < Samsung Tab2 10.1 P5100 < HTC Sensation < HTC Desire HD < HTC Desire < iPhone 3G

Hit Thanks if you feel happy♥ and served.

I have the same urge, I wanna get the full output from my Xperia Z2, feel all those four cores working in my hand. But that one Sony Camera app stops me because it's beautiful. It's matchless. That's the only reason I'm not changing my ROM and be bound to what Sony's put in my phone.

I am in the same boat here! I want to flash PA so bad especially with all their features but then the camera app, the noise cancelling features and x-reality etc is really stopping me from doing so

i use to be in the same boat before i noticed there is no point to flashing roms when im on a rom which does what i want

perhaps you should find a rom which has what you want

Same here.I literally used to flash a new ROM on my Nexus 5 everyday. As has been said though, the stock Z2 ROM does everything I want it to and rooted with some xposed mods its perfect.I just have to learn to live with my phone the way most other people do.

just a note

formatting then writing a rom to your system slows your device ALOT, it also cause alot of other issues but that comes after long wear n tear

Does this include doing a clean install? I mean doing clean install also slows the system? I've done clean install (re-install the stock Sony Z2 ROM) for 3 times till now. (Via Sony PC Companion)

included:
repair via sony pc companion
firmware upgrade
flashing custom rom
flashing ftf via flashtool
flashing via emma

all of those wear bout the same, its a matter of which one you do the most
in this case, flashing custom roms is this one

But I've done clean install via Sony PC Companion for 3 times now... So does this mean my phone isn't as fast as the day I bought it? Even though I've installed a clean ROM?
