--==]] Welcome to Xperia Z1 port ! for ALL DEVICES NON-ROOTED & ROOTED :)[[==---
By: Shan89


THREAD NAVIGATION:

  • [*]1st: part of the thread = NON ROOTED Port - basic stuff
    [*]2nd: part of the thread = ROOTED Port - xLoud / X-reality / walkman widget / movies and so on
    [*]3rd: part of the thread = Z1 / Z1s Keyboards - Rooted only
    [*]4th: part of the thread = EXTRAS ( additionally added updated apps / wallpapers)

    I'll add screenshots later and fix the thread a bit.



<-------------------------------_______________________________------------------------------->


1. NON-ROOTED PORT


Requirements:
  • - Android 4.1.2+
  • - Root is not needed unless you want world clock


Installation:

- Simply install APPS the normal way :)
Non-Rooted port includes:

- Z1 launcher
- Calendar app ( working events )
- Calendar widget
- Album App
- Album widget
- Clocks
- Weather widget
- Top contacts widget
- Recent calls widget
- SocialLifeNews app/widgets ( read notes ) - credits @Rizal Lovins
- Walkman ( read notes )
- World clock ( read notes )
- OnOffTools widgets ( read notes )
All the apps in the ZIP are currently the latest ones from Sony.

  • NOTES:

- Walkman is just a bare player , it doesn't have visuals nor equlizer , the reason for this is because it would require FLASHING which is something i don't want , the point of all this was simply to install APKS and use it , Tho walkman still works perfectly fine and can be used to control DSP such are : DSP Manager , MusicFX , Viper4Android and so on.

- SocialLifeNews : There are 3 parts in the zip , actually 3 versions , install them by the order 1/2/3.

- World Clock : if you want this one you gotta push it to ''system/app'' or for some devices ''system/priv-app'' and set the permission to "RW-R-R" then reboot , that's it.


  • BUGS:

- OnOffTools: has FCS with : Hot spot , NFC , GPS - Tho these 3 might work on sony devices ( need confrimation )

- Movies app This one wont be ported ATM on NON ROOT port since it requires ROOT / FLASHINGART.

    + Working all shortcuts - NEW



  • NOTES:

Walkman sound effects / movies / SRS / xLoud / dynamic normalizer / Clear Audio + :
- The only way to have WORKING xLoud / SRS / Dynamic normalizer via WALKMAN and MOVIES = Settings > Sound > music effects > sound enchantments
If the xLoud starts making CRACKLING NOISE = your speaker can't handle it , the best thing would be to EITHER volume down a bit or change to whatever DSP you're using. If you don't care for these just don't bother even enabling sound enchaments in music effects , everything will work except the sound benefits from sony.
- Lastly don't hold me responsible if xLOUD breaks your speakers lol

- Lyrics Extension will work ONLY if you have your songs CORRECTLY NAMED


  • BUGS:
- Walkman MIGHT show from TIME to TIME *music album art failed* or something like that.

- Manual sound enchantment from sony via walkman FC for now THO they work just fine and give us the effects :) ... Anyway i'll try to fix this when i have time.
SCREENSHOTS:



Download port for ROOTED

3. Xperia Z1's & Z1 Keyboard's



CREDITS : @DeveDroid for porting the Z1's keyboard, all i did is fixed the updater script and correct path, the keyboard is working fine now :)

Requirements:
  • - Android 4.2.2+
  • - ROOT ONLY ( recovery is actually only needed :p )

Installation:

Flash in recovery and reboot.
NOTES for Z1s and Z1 keyboards:


Z1s keyboard If flashed on ODEX / ART It'll have FORCE CLOSE with *SETTINGS BUTTON* Everything else works ( Yes emoji works with ODEX + ART )

If flashed on DEODEX = Everything works just fine.


Download Z1s KEYBOARD
>>HERE<<



- Z1 keyboard works on: ODEX / DEODEX / ART
- IMPORTANT - if you want WORKING *settings button & EMOTION button* you MUST FLASH on DEODEXED then later on you can ODEX , if you don't care for these 2 it's fine to flash on ODEX + ART.

Lastly it SHOULD work on ALL DEVICES 4.2.2 + ( at least i hope lol ! )

Yes it does... at least running android 4.4, whit low ram switch off.

Another thing... is it possible to also put the walkman widget?
The widget that I have from another ported xperia launchers does not work whit this one... Thanks in advance

Works on nexus 7 2013 4.4.2, but navbar and status bar aren't transparent, and with the dock background it looks kinda ugly.

Sweet , thx on the feedback guys , sorry for late response !
@ngyurov

it's kinda like that for now , it should be transparent on 4.4 while on 4.4.2 we get that damn black status bar. I managed to fix it but requires older version of xperia launcher which leads into borken widgets so it's better to have black bar and all widgets then none with transparent status bar.

Btw would you guys be interested into z1 4.3 keyboard? (tho it would require flashing )

That's too bad, I love the launcher, but the status and nav bar are too annoying.
Hope you can fix it in next version.

I'm using both on daily bases, haven't seen any crash on music player and I use it alot, as for social life.. I've got fc few days ago. It's quiet messy app to port especially cuz of the fact it's not even meant to be on kitkat yet. I guess this will have to wait for kitkat since fc happens randomly not at specific situation.

Thx mate, glad you like it.

Well I've got it working, tho it has fc with emotions button and settings, most likely due kitkat, it probably works perfectly fine on 4.3, even with this 2 fcs the keyboard is working perfect in general, only these 2 issues struggle me.

Anyway I'm still thinking whether to post it or not, no one is really asking for it, you can see that via downloads, there's over 1500 downloads no one bothers really to post a feedback or appreciate all of this and hit the "thanks button" isn't really inspiring Lol :sly:
