Oh grammar, kernels are device spesific aka Z2 kernel only works on Z2 and not tablet although they are almost the same on the inside

Time to update the thread thanks for pointing that out

Great info! Reckon you could also add, like, a section with obscure/hidden general productivity tips for the phone as well?

For example:
  • If you press and hold the right-hand side of the notification bar, it will change to quick settings allowing you to then swipe down for the quick settings.
  • From the home page, if you swipe from the very edge of a side of the screen, you can scroll 2 pages at once.
  • Etc.

Screen rotation
Not sure if this is for on here or not but is it possible to have the screen rotation for the stock launcher on all the time and not just when a magnetic charger is connected? (I know other launchers are available)

It seems there is a bug when you force rotate however ive found a soution. The problem is that you need root

You need to download and install
Xposed installer
Xperia rotation and multiline lables (this is the module name btw)
Gravity box(KK) can be used to rotate the lockscreen of which this require xposed too

Hope this helps

Thanks, disappointing I have to root. I like to use stock for a while before I start to tamper with it

Actually thought I wouldn't need to root this as all I used root for was greenify but stamina mode seems to have better results.

Edit - found an app seems to work https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...otationmanager

Thanks again

I have already spammed the thanks button for you mate in this thread but your great simple guide now has my bootloader unlocked & rooted & booted as they say

Does yourself or anyone else knowa good app to edit the DPI to a setting that wont cause issues with play store or apps or games or what would be the best setting to use for editing the build prop file? I know the default is about 480 Previous device was galaxy s3 which by default was 320 but I always changed it to 240 or 245.

I usualy use xplore, you have to enable superuser in the settings but the app is functional enough for file management

Default DPI is 480, some people said 460 n stuff like that is a nicer dpi to use, hvnt realy tried my self

Edit- you also have to give credit to the ppl who wrote the other threads who i liked here :P
