== FAQ & HELP ==
== PC Companion still tells me there is a newer update for my XZ? ==
- Download latest stock ftf
- Download and install latest Flashtool
- Choose to flash the ftf, but:
- exclude system!
- Uncheck all wipe options!​
- Enjoy my latest rom with latest stock Sony kernel, baseband etc :)

== XZ Revolution Tweaks Force Closes ==
- It will force close on first run for some unknown reason, just reopen it from settings and it will work :)

== Lockscreen music controls not working with headset plugged in? ==
- This is because of the Clearaudio+ app from Rizal Lovins
- Delete Clearaudio+.apk from /system/app
- Delete headset.so from /system/lib

== No sound when selecting ringtone or notification tone (works on incoming call or notified event) ==
- No solution yet, but could be related to the above.

== Walkman app sometimes just closes (without any FC message, just closing) ==
- Probably something some people can have, others won't. Didn't had this problem myself and I also listen quite some music myself :)

== Screenshots ==
Black Navigation bar :)

loss of bravia engine if root , damn , is so much better after root ?

It's your choice, I don't really care a lot about BE, but I'm searching for a way to enable BE on unlocked bootloader though ;)
Maybe I found a way to have BE1 instead of BE2, but at least it will be working on unlocked bootloader, so it's a start :)

Hi and thank you.

I have a question. This rom base on RomAur? Or you took the base from (C6603) 10.1.A.1.350 Original Sony Unbranded UK Rom ?

regards.

Base is Sony 10.1.A.1.350 original rom of course :)

EDIT: And I'm uploading to XDA Fileserver instead of devhost, devhost is bad today for uploading for some reason..
