Version Details


Aroma Version:


Its the Big Daddy of all the other versions and the most ideal version to install for a person who knows what he is doing. It contains almost everything Sony has to provide along with all the other Modifications, Tweaks, Fixes, Addons, Applications, Kernels, Recoveries, Mods, Bootanimations, Glass Apps, Google Apps, Bloatware Removal Script etc. The main thing that makes the Aroma Version perfect is that everything in the Installer is optional for the user to install, He/She can either install everything or nothing for a clean install. It gives you complete freedom to configure the ROM and your Device exactly the way you like.


Minimal Version:


Minimal Version is a new version which has been specially optimized keeping the following things in consideration:
  • Lowest Possible Size
  • Battery Friendly
  • More and More Free RAM
  • All the Possible Bloatware Removed
  • No Additional Apps (Except the Most Required ones)
  • Optimized for best Performance, Speed and Smoothness
  • Etc ++

The Minimal Version contains All the Modifications, Tweaks, Fixes but Only one Kernel and Bootanimation, No Glass Apps and No Google Apps either. It does not have any undervolting script pre installed but all the Bloatware is already removed from it. If someone wants to install something from the Aroma Version He/She should download the Addons Pack and if someone wants any of the deleted apps that were deleted while the Bloatware Removal, He/She can get them from the Official FTF or from Aroma Version.

This Version is Ideal for those who like a very very clean Install and like to customize and add everything exactly What and How they want. The only things left out in the Minimal Version are the Core Apps without which you would loose the entire feel of Sony Xperia Z1 and without them there would be no pleasure in installing it.


Addons Pack:


The Addons Pack has everything in the Aroma Version except the ROM itself. It is being provided for Minimal and Official Versions because they do not have anything from Aroma Version included in them. So, In case if someone wants to install something from Aroma Version, He/She should use the Addons Pack and as its based on Aroma to, so naturally He/She will have all the options with what to install and what not. This Pack will not only work with my ROM, or any other Stock Based ROM alone, it will work with all other ROMs too (Ofcourse, The ones that support the Included Kernels).

Installation



Kindly follow this updated guide by @yoorie016 instead of the one below. Thanks.

Okay, follow this steps to flash the .157 FTF and how to root it. It will take more than an hour (except for the download of FTF) to finish installing the stock ROM. Hope you have the patience to read every steps. :D

1. Download any .108 FTF, try this link for the FTF. Or if you can find any .157 FTF, download it. If you find any .157 FTF, skip the step 5.
2. Make sure all drivers for Z1 is already installed in your PC or Laptop.
3. Next, download the latest flashtool > here's the link.
4. Install the flashtool and follow this steps on how to install the FTF by krabappel2548.
5. After you install the FTF, boot the phone and let it configure. then update it to the current .157 FW. Don't worry cause its just a 10mb (i think?) update.
6. Root you're phone using this method.
7. Download flashable recovery > use this and look for the latest version, with the name "Z1" on it of course. After you download the file, copy and paste it to your external SD card. (We'll also use this later on installing the 6.2 iHackers ROM)
8. Install a dual recovery via windows, try this link
9. After you installed the dual recovery via Windows, and i assume that your phone is rebooted to recovery, use the volume rockers to navigate to your extrernal SD card, then look for the flashable dual recovery that you download earlier. then install it. Reboot your device and follow the steps below on how to install the latest 6.2.1 iHackers.

There are two methods you can actually do to update the ROM, this will take only a couple of mins. For both methods, you don't need to wipe anything (Cache and Dalvik) also, you can just reboot normally without flashing again the recovery.

Method 1: OTA Update
1. In Settings, browse downwards until you see the "iHackers" menu.
2. Look for the menu "OTA Updater" and tap it.
3. In the OTA Updater, look for the "ROM" tab and tap it. Then tap "Available Updates" if the app doesn't prompt you any new update.
4. The OTA Updater will download the 6.2.1 ROM, install the update and it will boot you to Aroma.
5. After the update, reboot your phone.

Method 2: Manual Download
1. Download this iHackers v6.2.1 [Patch] and paste it to this location>> Internal Storage (SD CARD)/download/ROM.
2. Browse to OTA Updater and look for the download icon, it's located at the top right portion of the app (Arrow down with line under it). It should show the downloaded patch then tap it to install.
3. After the update, reboot your phone.

Let me know if you find any issues or questions.

Thank you and happy flashing! :D

The link for NUT recovery goes to a webpage with a million download links and all the recoveries listed are Beta not the current release.

Any chance just posting a link to the one we actually need?

Thx

    Latest News

    Fortunately I got my hands on a Z1 for a short period of time and after immense testing and debugging v6.2 has achieved the perfection and stability I desired. Its completely bug-free as far as I have tested, battery which is always my prime concern has improved a lot too, the ROM is super smooth and fluid too. Ofcourse there are a lot of other modifications and improvements too which you will notice once you start using the ROM. BTW, I have removed a few features like Ultra Stamina Mode, Advanced Power Menu etc that were there in the Beta Versions which I can release separately if you guys want me to and added some features too.

    Long story short, iHackers v6.2 [Minimal] and iHackers v6.2 [Aroma] are ready and I will release them very soon. I will push it via OTA for everyone and release it on the thread too as soon as I upload it.

    Regarding iHackers v6.2 [Google Edition] and iHackers v6.2 [Nano] they are almost ready too. I will send the links to everyone who opted to test it as soon as I upload them too.

    This release will be my final release for Xperia Z1. It has been an awesome experience, thanks to all you guys.

    Version Details


    Aroma Version:


    Its the Big Daddy of all the other versions and the most ideal version to install for a person who knows what he is doing. It contains almost everything Sony has to provide along with all the other Modifications, Tweaks, Fixes, Addons, Applications, Kernels, Recoveries, Mods, Bootanimations, Glass Apps, Google Apps, Bloatware Removal Script etc. The main thing that makes the Aroma Version perfect is that everything in the Installer is optional for the user to install, He/She can either install everything or nothing for a clean install. It gives you complete freedom to configure the ROM and your Device exactly the way you like.


    Minimal Version:


    Minimal Version is a new version which has been specially optimized keeping the following things in consideration:
    • Lowest Possible Size
    • Battery Friendly
    • More and More Free RAM
    • All the Possible Bloatware Removed
    • No Additional Apps (Except the Most Required ones)
    • Optimized for best Performance, Speed and Smoothness
    • Etc ++

    The Minimal Version contains All the Modifications, Tweaks, Fixes but Only one Kernel and Bootanimation, No Glass Apps and No Google Apps either. It does not have any undervolting script pre installed but all the Bloatware is already removed from it. If someone wants to install something from the Aroma Version He/She should download the Addons Pack and if someone wants any of the deleted apps that were deleted while the Bloatware Removal, He/She can get them from the Official FTF or from Aroma Version.

    This Version is Ideal for those who like a very very clean Install and like to customize and add everything exactly What and How they want. The only things left out in the Minimal Version are the Core Apps without which you would loose the entire feel of Sony Xperia Z1 and without them there would be no pleasure in installing it.


    Addons Pack:


    The Addons Pack has everything in the Aroma Version except the ROM itself. It is being provided for Minimal and Official Versions because they do not have anything from Aroma Version included in them. So, In case if someone wants to install something from Aroma Version, He/She should use the Addons Pack and as its based on Aroma to, so naturally He/She will have all the options with what to install and what not. This Pack will not only work with my ROM, or any other Stock Based ROM alone, it will work with all other ROMs too (Ofcourse, The ones that support the Included Kernels).
