Hey guys, how can I make the Xperia Z ROMs work on ZL?
I guess it's not that different. Maybe something on boot.img or build prop
Tks

Why Z ROMs? There is no difference

Not really...

I see more ROM options on Z than ZL device.

One example: MIUI is almost up-to-date on Z and discontinued on ZL

It's nearly impossible
Because the both devices are little different not the same
Get a Z

Yep
I'm serious
The ROM ports not easy as APP ports

Ask a developer. Maybe I'm wrong

I dont know if it's too different like Samsung devices.

For example: When I had a Samsung Galaxy, I just needed to change some basic information on the build.prop, like device name/product name.

I was wondering what kind of info should I change to get this running.

I used to flash Z ROMS on Locked Bootloader with no problems at all, just remember to flash Brightness Fix and ZL kernel again *BEFORE* restarting system, or else you will enter a bootloop with no recovery option and will have to flash official ZL FTF, root and reinstall recovery again to get another go.

Z ROMS flashed successfully:
eXistenZ 1.5.5 Ultimate
eXistenZ 7.0.0 Ultra
MIUI v5 (official MIUI ROM, though, not the ones posted here in XDA)

That's what I'm talking about, mate.
Will try that until the weekend

Thanks

little more difficult getting the aosp ROMs ported, I think.

I'd tried porting the KMA CM11 build to the ZL. though I managed to have it running, the screen always stayed on and at full brightness. I had done the steps that are part of this "brightness fix" which is known to work on stock based ROMs.

disclaimer: I'm a newbie and it's possible there was something additional to be done (which I wasn't aware of) while porting.
