Hey guys,
After the Z3 was announced in IFA 2014 in Berlin. I noticed there was no major change other than the new PS4 Remote Play feature. The feature that allows you to use your Xperia Device as a Second Screen for the PlayStation 4 anytime and anywhere. I was pretty sad that other devices might not get the feature. But it wasn't long until I ported and figured out the necessary files needed to get remote play to any and all Android Devices with Version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). So now we can get Remote Play in our devices too as soon as Sony releases the PS Remote Play APP. But now, it will be compatible with our devices as well.
So the requirements:
1. CWM (ClockWorkMod) Recovery
2. The flashable zip I created
3. PS APP (Download Link will be given below)
4. Common Sense and a wee bit of patience.

So here we go:
Instructions:

Download the Flashable Zip from this link:
https://www.mediafire.com/?5xjqaxipkfc4bsz

And this specific PlayStation APK from here:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/zvqrvgzcgdu7pq4/playstationapp.apk

Copy them to your Phone.
Enter CWM Recovery.
Flash the ZIP.
Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache.
Reboot.
Then install the PS App normally.
After you install the App, when you go to the "Connect to PS4" Tab, you will notice that there will be a small logo for Remote Play which isn't there normally. Screenshot is given below:

Then, when you press on it, this is what it will say:
http://www.mediafire.com/view/11d1ztnk7c4kbls/Screenshot_2014-09-05-11-59-48.png

So it should work when the app is here. But this is what you will need to get the app running.
When the app comes. It might be incompatible at first but with a port or some changes to the build.prop. We'll be able to get Remote Play Running on your Android Device.



A NOTICE FOR XPERIA Z1 USERS ONLY.
When the "PS Remote Play App" comes, if Play Store says it's incompatible, this build.prop( link given below) might make it compatible for the Xperia Z1.
Here is the build.prop: https://www.mediafire.com/?2x6hr5fcovvlbot
Copy this build.prop to your system folder using a root exploring app and set permisssions to 0644



Please PRESS THANKS and give it a THUMBS UP if this helped you in anyway.
If anyone could share this to the General Android Development and Hacking Forum, It would be very NICE

That's good! But you also need this for remote play. That's just for connecting your dualshock 4 which we will also need. Now where did you get this? Could you tell me please? I downloaded your ported version of the Dualshock Manager but I can't find it in settings. Could you tell me where in settings should I be able to find it? Thanks in advance!!

Should I just move the APK to system/app or remove the other apk in system/app for Dualshock 3?
Just flash the zip in recovery like its told in the OP or just extract the zip and push the apps in to the right folder like system/app, just look where the apps stands in the zip ;)

Btw you post this but dont where to install it ?
Strange !

What? Me? I don't understand. I gave proper instructions. I said everything I could bro. But I don't get from where you got the flashable zip for the controller. If you could give that to me, it would be very helpful. Thanks.

So if i understand it correctly, this is just set-up which actually not working with PS4 right now, because PS4 needs an update to make it work? Or it is not working, cause there is another application for Xperia remote play, which isn't released yet?

Levered, Bro. He is talking about a Flashable zip. There is no Flashable Zip. If you could just give me the link to the thread where I can find this. Thanks
What stands here in the OP ?

Is that not a flashable zip file ?
I guess yes mate, so you need flash that because its a zip what you posted in your OP here !

Pandemic, I mean not for this. I need the thing Levered ported which is the Dualshock 4 Manager. I need that. I said if someone could provide me with that. Not this. I ported this already.

@XperiaPlaystation
Be more clear then -__-
@Levered posted that apk in an attachment, just download that app and push it manually into system/app and reboot and its an app and not a zip !

What I wish to say is that, I copied it to system/app, fixed permissions and rebooted. Then I went to settings and in Xperia Connectivity, I only found the option for Connecting DualShock 3 Controller just like it was before mate. So basically I wanted to know is there anything else I have to do.
