PROJECT ABANDONED
There is NO SOLUTION to Sony's tampering. I am currently working on CM12.1 for the C3.



Good day to all you C3 owners.

Today, I bring you something GREAT:
Stock 19.3.A.0.472, Rooted, De-Bloated, and Deodexed

This ROM should (Theoretically) be able to run Xposed Framework by rovo89, due to having been deodexed. It has also been De-Bloated (See below for a list of what's been removed), and comes pre-rooted, with a custom boot animation.

Images:
Unfortunately, I HARD-BRICKED my C3 while developing CyanogenMod for it, so I can't provide screenshots at the moment. I will upload them as soon as my phone comes back from the repair shop.
Features:
  • Deodexed - Should work with Xposed
  • De-Bloated - No more unnecessary apps taking up precious Space and RAM
  • Rooted - With SuperSU keeping your C3 in top form
How to install:
Make sure that your BootLoader is UNLOCKED and that you have Sony firmware 19.3.A.0.472 installed BEFORE attempting to install this software.

Pre-requisites:
  • Unlocked BootLoader (Use the Z3c unlock option over at Sony Developer World)
  • Firmware 19.3.A.0.472
  • [NUT]'s XZDR for Xperia T2 Ultra (Compatible with C3 as well)
Installation:
  1. Copy the downloaded ZIP file to your phone (Preferably SD card)
  2. Reboot into recovery (Preferably [NUT]'s XZDR TWRP)
  3. [OPTIONAL] Wipe data (Factory Reset) for a *FULL* De-Bloat
  4. Install the ZIP file that you previously downloaded onto your phone
  5. [IMPORTANT] Read the disclaimer. The setup will pause for a minute to allow you to do this.
  6. Wait for the new ROM to install. You will get a message when it's done.
  7. [IMPORTANT] Wipe Cache & Dalvik
  8. Reboot into your new system
  9. [IMPORTANT] Enjoy!

Question F.A.Q.
Frequently Asked Questions:

Will this increase my Internal Storage?
No. It uses the /system partition, which is separate from the /data partition, where your Internal Storage actually is.

Will this make my phone faster?
Theoretically, yes, because it has less bloatware included with the ROM. However, speed depends on a lot of factors, such as how many apps you have, whether they stay open in the background, and how much RAM the apps that do stay open use. As a general rule, the more "free" RAM you have, the faster your phone will be. ("Free" is in quotes because it isn't actually empty, it just contains cached data. For example: If you open WhatsApp, close it, and then open it again, it will open faster the second time because the app is already cached in RAM and does not have to be loaded from storage again.)

Does this ROM support Xposed?
Yes (Or at least, it should. I haven't personally tested this yet...). The reason Xposed didn't work on our device is because Software Version 19.3.A.0.472 was shipped with a corrupted Services.odex file. Because I have deodexed this ROM, there is no longer a Services.odex file to actually BE corrupted, so Xposed should work. Should...

Is this ROM better than Sony's Stock 5.0.2, even though it's based on the Stock ROM?
In my opinion, yes. But I am biased because I "made" the ROM (Not really "made" so much as "customized to my preferences", but made sounds better...), and love to customize devices. Xposed allows for customization, while anyone will like something that they've made (or at least done something to). I think this ROM is better because it allows you to make your device YOURS, and not "just another phone" (*cough* *cough* "Apple" *cough* *cough*). But you'll have to make up your own opinion this time...

Does this ROM fix the rear camera?
No. It is based on the Stock Sony 19.3.A.0.472 Lollipop, so it will have the same bugs as the Stock ROM.

How do I report a bug?
Use the "Bug report" tab. Just fill in the fields, and I'll get an email about it. Just be as descriptive as possible, please.

If you have any further questions, please ask in the thread.

No, it's for the D2533. You can unlock the bootloader using the same unlock code as the Z3 Compact

Yeah. I've read it. Just got confused because it's on XC forum. Searching XDA, found out that there is no forum for XC3. I was kinda excited reading the unlocked bootloader part LOL. Dont get mad bro.

It has something to do with the way the camera processes images, it became a bit too aggressive in noise filtering.

Wasn't angry, just affirming your suspicions on it. Now if someone were to flash it on an Xperia C I'd be angry for just a little bit. And maybe amused.

The camera quality is bad in the Lollipop update because the camera firmware was originally made for KitKat, and just adapted for Lollipop. Hopefully, by the time the official 5.1.1 update comes out, Sony will have listened to our complaints and redone the camera firmware (or at least optimized it better than for the 5.0.2 update!). For the mean while, We'll just have to make do with what we have...
I'm also having trouble with the cm12.1 camera, as I can't find the actual source for the firmware anywhere, so I'm afraid that it won't be any better. I might just go ahead and build an experimental build without camera support in the mean time, though, but I'll only do that once my C3 has come back from repairs (They now say that, since they can't flash it in-house, they've sent it in to their main office for "Advanced Repairs" - whatever that means!).

So I'm now stuck without a phone, as my XGo, I just discovered, no longer has the last 2 SIM reader pins, so it doesn't read my SIM card at all. I'm just hoping that I'll actually get my phone back...
