Thank you both for this new "Xperia Z" Rom. I am downloading it right now, flash it later and test it during next week. I will come with an extensive review. Really good to see roms, updates, etc for our aging device..! I am about to get a Galaxy Note 2/3 and new roms for Xperia Arc are more than welcome! :)
