Edit 2018: Mediafire removed the file due to it being "a virus". In reality they attempted to get me to purchase a bitdefender subscription from them to "fix" the viruses on my PC. They targeted random files as some versions of Fragment ROM which is based on THIS ROM were left up (where is the virus??).
Sorry guys I don't have a copy so it's up to someone else to host if they have a copy and feel like it.

The page now stands for reference:


Xperia Z3 Deodexed Stock 23.5.A.1.291 GLOBAL

Model: D6603

(The obvious disclaimer: I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong with your device if you flash this. I have taken as many steps possible to ensure top quality and am running this myself, but you have been warned!!)

Not much to say really. Latest Sony release ready to be flashed or used as ROM base. RXSMB members (you know who you are) don't need any permission to use this, others please send a quick PM I'm pretty good at responding quickly. I know how much of a pain choosing your base can be.
All stock as it was when Sony released it. Only been deodexed by myself.

Can be flashed on Locked Bootloader and will give you root and recovery (TWRP 3.0.2 and SuperSU 2.76). Includes the latest kernel and baseband 61 from the ftf, but that is all. No FOTA etc.

V2 Changelog: SuperUserMOD integrated. No need to flash the patch.
Removed Chrome, Browser and Drive from system. Download from Play if you need.
Deodexed the two apks in system/vendor/apps that I missed
The APN downloader (ie Download Internet Settings) is fixed - Special Thanks to @Rajeev for this :)

MediaFire link: Removed due to their racketeering. Flagged file as virus trying to make me purchase bitdefender from them. lol.

MD5: de083b0d5818f364aee6fc60c695bc5f


Patch V1 to V2: Removed for same reason as ROM
(You still need to manually delete from /system/app - Browser, Chrome, and Drive folders --- If it still doesn't work just install the main V2. Dirty flash will be fine)


For all versions there is a Chrome issue. To FIX navigate with a root browser to system/vendor/apps and delete the ChromeCustomizations folder and the ims folder. Reboot and Chrome from Play Store will work now.

Install Instructions:
(Best results will come from installing over Marshmallow)
Boot into TWRP Recovery
Clean install recommended (wipe only data), but not entirely necessary unless you have issues. Do not wipe System as this is done by scripts.
Flash the ROM
Wipe dalvik and cache
Count to three :p
Reboot

Any issues let me know ASAP in comments.

Additionally people seem to be having issues with the Stock Browser and Google Drive. It is best to delete them with a root browser from /system/app and then install them from Play Store.


ADDONS:

SuperUserMod made by editing the services.jar. Flashable zip for recovery. It will overwrite the services.jar in framework. Please make a backup before flash (just in case).

Removed for same reason as ROM

Huge thanks to all of RXSMB Team for guidance on getting this together and also to @Bloodlvst and @kansasboy001 for helping with the baseband stuff and @Pandemic for some of the installer. Biggest thanks to @Wolfbreak for Root and Recovery and making it possible on MM.

ENJOY!!!


(If I need to adjust this thread, the ROM, my attitude etc please PM me straight away to work things out. First proper ROM post even though it's stock so I can still get stuff wrong and I know that)

Thank you so much for your work.
I like that there is no type of change but only Deodexed.
Just one question: icon or 4G LTE?
Thanks anyway friend. :good::good:

Not 100? sure as I use a ported system UI from Xperia X.

I imagine it's just the 4G icon as I used the Global ftf from Sony. If it's not in the system UI then it's definitely the 4G icon as this is what I have.

Nice! Now i only need superuser mod
If you need SuperUserMod I have just edited the services.jar so it is integrated right into the ROM. Flashable zip so just flash and it should work. Would be nice if you could test for me. Working fine for me :)
