Hi all!

The amazing feature - BRAVIA ENGINE - is now available for ur Xperia Play

this is based on the files posted by zdzihu for X10: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1193274
all credit for the original files which made this possible goes to zdzihu

i have modified the files so that they work properly on Xperia Play


special thanks to AndroHero for helping out with testing

Thank you AndroHero for u kind donation


[ screenshots ]





[ tested on ]

Xperia Play R800i & R800a
it should also work on R800x & older FW (we havent tested it though)


[ requirements ]
  1. Stock Rooted ROM [GB & ICS] (will not work on CM7)
  2. Working recovery (either use Bin4ry's hotboot recovery image OR use my kernel which has recovery inbuilt)


[ donations ]

if u feel that this work has helped u OR u think that the work i put into making this is worthy of donations, then click on the following link for buying me some coffee/beer/etc
Donate to me

also do consider donating to zdzihu as he is the one who posted the files for Xperia X10


[ installation ]

flash the following file via recovery:
z_bravia_MOD-DooM-PLAY_v01-ENABLE.zip [mirror]

u will now have "Mobile BRAVIA Engine" option in Settings -> Display


[ uninstall ]

flash the following file via recovery:
z_bravia_MOD-DooM-PLAY_v01-DISABLE.zip [mirror]


BTW i have created the files in such a way that they should also work for other Xperia 2011 devices which dont have this feature... try it out on ur device and let me know





enjoy!

Angry Manual way
[ requirements ]
  • Rooted Device
  • Root Explorer
  • Terminal Emulator


[ how to ]
  1. download the ENABLE zip package and extract contents to a temporary folder on SDCARD (eg: /sdcard/temp/)
  2. using Root Explorer mount SYSTEM as RW
  3. now using Root Explorer copy the following 2 files to /system/etc/:
    /sdcard/temp/system/etc/be_photo
    /sdcard/temp/system/etc/be_movie
  4. open the file /system/build.prop using RootExplorer ('Open in Text Editor' option)
  5. add the following two lines to the file (preferably end of the file)
    Code:
    ro.service.swiqi.supported=true
    persist.service.swiqi.enable=1
  6. once u have added the above content SAVE the file and exit RootExplorer
  7. start Terminal Emulator and execute the following commands:
    Code:
    su
    busybox chmod 0755 /system/etc/be_photo
    busybox chmod 0755 /system/etc/be_movie
    busybox chown root.root /system/etc/be_photo
    busybox chown root.root /system/etc/be_movie
    if the last commands are giving error try these:
    Code:
    busybox chown 0.0 /system/etc/be_photo
    busybox chown 0.0 /system/etc/be_movie
  8. now restart the device and enjoy MOBILE BRAVIA Engine
