*** WE HAVE A CAMERA!! *** CyanogenMod CM13 (Unofficial) for the Xperia Z3 Compact

Ok, have a pretty stable build of CM13 for our beloved Z3C.... This is a work-in-progress, so don't expect stock-like stability.

Have one BIG issue currently - NO CAMERA. This is being actively worked on, but proving tricky... rather than post unstable builds with flaky camera framework, I have opted for stable builds with no camera until it's working well....

We have a camera now.... Need a couple of volunteers to test... The new build is uploading now, and is NOT available on the download link below - I will post the link once the upload is complete....

No real need to tell you about CM features as most of you will be familiar with CM and ROM's based on CM.

Note: Root is disabled by default - you will need to activate Developer Settings (7 taps on the Build Version in the About Phone menu).

Known issues:
Errr, lack of a camera (note that downloading a camera app from Play Store would only be of use of you need to waste some time... hehe!)​

External sdcard - using your card from a previous android version *may" give you a notification that it is corrupted - IT'S NOT, it will still be ok and accessible from your previous ROM. If you want to use it on Marshmallow, it will need to be formatted. :-(
External storage is NOT mounted as "sdcard1", and is not natively writeable... This is being worked on.

External SDCARD fixed!!

DOWNLOAD! (will be uploading updated builds every few days - until the official CM nightlies start rolling out....)
To Install:

1. - BACKUP YOUR CURRENT ROM (on internal storage preferably)
I will NOT be handing out tissues to wipe away tears if you do something silly... if you are not sure, then don't!

2. - Factory Reset from the Wipe menu in TWRP

3. - Flash the ROM.
IMPORTANT!!! If you want to use Gapps, you MUST flash it straight after flashing the ROM. Do not reboot, then decide you want to flash gapps. You have been warned.

Have fun!!!
