I've owned my Z2 for about a month now, really enjoying the phone. I've rooted and created a TA backup zip and have been exploring more of the phone with root, however, since my first phone was a Nexus, I'd like to go back and test the waters with an AOSP-based image like CarbonROM, but there's a couple concerns with doing so:
- Will the camera button functionality remain? I like being able to launch the camera with a physical button, and the half/long-press functionality.
- How well do apps like Google Camera, Impala, and VSCO Cam fill the void left by losing the Z2 camera app? Are they suitable substitutes?
- Aside from the DRM keys that I've saved in the TA backup, what else is there to worry about losing after unlocking the bootloader? I don't have any investment in Sony's ecosystem outside of this phone, so things like "Social News" and "SmartConnect" aren't exactly deal breakers. In fact, I don't even think I use the active noise cancelling because I own Sennheiser/ATH headphones.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
