Just got a ZL - Recommended mods?

Hi there,

Just got me a second-hand Xperia ZL, first personal Android device in a while, have been handling Android devices for work so am not afraid of rooting, flashing custom kernels, etc.

Been doing a little bit of recon on my end and was a little overwhelmed at the amount of development this device has (which is a good thing!). Am going to try to unlock my bootloader later today, and was wondering what the recommended ROMs and mods are out there?

Thanks!

I recommend Dirty Unicorn.. It's a custom rom that based on omnirom.. It has a LOT of customization and tweaks... Also, if you want cm based, i recommend Carbon...
I'm using Dirty Unicorn right now because it has a lot of tweaks and customization... Cheers!

Dirty Unicorn looks good, might try that. Do any of the KitKat-based ROMs have the battery drain issues I've been hearing from the official KK releases?

If your phone is a carrier phone you won't be able to unlock your bootloader.
I suggest stock + xposed, and nova Launcher.

Hi,

My phone is an unlocked unit and I was able to get the bootloader unlocked.

Went with Carbon since I didn't really like the customizations on Dirty Unicorns. Once the official 4.4.4 stock ROM releases I might try that out as well

I suggest you de-odex, install superSU mod and try some new Z3 apps on the Cross-device development section
