Will this Rom work on a z2 device with locked bootloader if using dual recovery?

Is anyone using this as there daily driver? If so do you have one bug bear thats might make others reconsider trying it as a there daily rom and what is it? also since im already posting a question how much customization is the launcher and the rom itself? Im quite interested in trying this and i mean no disrespect ( i am NOT i repeat NOT asking for an eta) however there is only a nightly build and im just trying to figure how stable it is and if everyone is getting reboot or touch screen issues. thanks for your time.

I'd love to use this as my daily driver. Unfortunately the current bugs make it a non-starter for me. AOKP was what I wanted so badly the moment I got this phone, even before I did! It's a deadly Rom, I don't even have to try it to know that. But it has to work. Clearly it has proven more difficult to code for this phone than anyone anticipated. That's no one's fault.

In the meantime, I've rooted, installed custom dual recovery and have heavily modded my phone with xposed. You can pretty much pick and choose all the features from all the best roms, a-la-carte. So it's like you're on a custom Rom, but you're not, and the features are so easily reversible. Then get an awesome full featured launcher like adw ex, freeze your bloatware, and you'll forget you're on the Sony Rom.

But with all that said, if they get all the bugs out of this, you've Damn right I'm going to give it a real good try.

    Device:Sony Xperia Z2 (SIRIUS)

    What is AOKP?
    AOKP stands for Android Open Kang Project. It is a custom ROM distribution for several high-end Android devices. The name is a play on the word kang and AOSP (Android Open Source Project). The name was sort of a joke, but it just stuck, just like our infatuation with unicorns.

    We fork the source code of Android that Google puts out in the open with every major version release, and we then add the magical unicorn bytes (read: we add some of the coolest features that are both useful and make your ROM awesome).

    With AOKP, you can generally do a lot more with your device than what you could do with the original firmware that came installed on it.


    Why AOKP ?
    We were waiting for when you’d ask this.

    There are a variety of reasons why a hilly billy Android user, on a bright sunny day, would suddenly start using AOKP and loving it.

    For one, AOKP is lightweight. Most OEMs provide a heavy UI layer over Android and have loads of bloatware (i.e. apps that not everyone use every day, but you cannot remove because they’re “baked in” by default). Since AOKP is built upon vanilla Android source, it has neither of the above.

    Also AOKP has features that you will not find on your stock firmware. You can have a multitude of toggles to quickly flip a lot of your phone’s settings right at your fingertips, or you can launch apps quickly from any screen using our Ribbons.

    You can change almost each and every aspect of the OS, from its looks to the way it functions, with total freedom. And did we tell you, AOKP helps you make tacos?

    what are the differences between this and CM? I've always seen CM as the gold standard of roms, and it's hard to imagine a rom improving on this. I understand this is based on CM. What has been added to the CM build? What is maybe not as strong as in CM, or missing that CM features?

    AOKP is CM on streroids...

    AOKP is based on AOSP like CM but it has many under the hood tweaks and that enhances the user experience but it depends on you and what you want the devices to do. The feature list is extensive and there are too many to list but it comes down to prefernce and what you as the user wants to do with the device.

    CM is based on AOSP with minor additions to enhance the user experience.
