What is Sony Apps Enabler?
  • Sony Apps Enabler is basically a ported version of Sony devices' framework files. This tricks playstore into recognizing your android as a Sony device. Therefore, you get to install and update all Sony device specific apps directly from playstore.




  • What you'll get:
    • Support for all Sony Apps that are on Playstore.
      • Music
      • Album
      • Xperia Keyboard
      • Xperia Home
      • Calendar
      • Weather
      • Sketch, etc

  • What you won't get:
    • Support for Sony device specific stock apps that are not on Playstore.





Installation
  • Make sure your device has a functional TWRP recovery
  • Download and flash the "Sony Apps Enabler_3.0.1.zip"
  • Reboot
  • Clear Playstore's data
  • Reboot
  • Open Playstore and install your preferred Sony apps.

Uninstallation
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Flash the "Sony Apps Disabler.zip"
  • Reboot






Uninstaller




APKMirror:


Playstore:





Bugs
  • Currently, none.

F.A.Q.
  • Will it work on my ROM?
    => It should. It has been tested working on almost all popular 4.4.4 to 7.1.2 ROMs.
    -
  • Why doesn't it work?
    => Try the alternate version. 3.0.1 doesn't work on some devices, eg. Kenzo.
    -
  • Still doesn't work?
    => Make sure you cleared Playstore's data exactly as instructed. And try going through the whole installation process a couple of times.
    -
  • Why can't I install AR Effect and some similar apps?
    => This mod lets you install Sony Apps from Playstore that are "Independent". AR Effect requires Sony Camera app to work, that's why AR Effect and few other apps of this sort won't work.
    -
  • Will you repack your mod with the apk's of Sony Apps?
    => Nope. Kinda ruins the purpose of this mod, don't you think?
    -
  • Do you plan to make a Magisk Module of this?
    => A module has already been made by @matpower64. His thread can be found here.
    -
  • I can't find my desired Sony App on Playstore search results.
    => Direct Playstore links are already added on this thread. The Playstore links can also be found on the APKMirror pages.

Fantastic work mate.
Worked like a charm. I've been using your old zip file got from a friend of yours @shavendum
What's the difference between the old and this new one? Any updated features?

It's tested on quite a few 4.4 to 7.1.1 devices. I don't see any reason for it to not work on 7.1.2.
