[ info ]

Hello friends,

so after the sneak peak, i present to you leaked Sony 4.2.2 JellyBean Firmware 10.3.A.0.407 for the Xperia Z (C6602/C6603)...


this firmware was ment for developer (brown) devices but i was able to get it to boot on production devices...


THIS IS FOR UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS ONLY!






[ NOTICE ]

since this is an internal testing firmware, do not expect to see the same features on the official final release... some things could be added while others removed...







[ screenshots ]

about.png


most screenshots are posted here






[ WARNING ]

PLEASE DO NOT CROSSFLASH THIS ROM+KERNEL... this is ment only for C6602/C6603 (Xperia Z)... please do not flash it on ZL/Tablet Z/etc....





  1. THIS IS AN LEAKED ROM

  2. FEW THINGS ARE EXPECTED NOT TO WORK

  3. THIS IS POSTED JUST SO THAT USERS CAN ENJOY THE UPCOMING FEATURES AND OTHER DEVS CAN HELP IN FIXING THE ISSUES

  4. MORE THINGS WILL FOLLOW AS AND WHEN I/OTHERS CAN GET THEM TO WORK

  5. DO NOT ASK FOR FURTHER UPDATES/ETA OF OFFICIAL RELEASE




please backup all data, including internal SDCARD data before flashing this ROM



[ why has this been posted? ]

many devs can use the libs to improve existing/work-in-progress ROMs...

many themers can start porting to ROMs/devices...

many users will get a feel of whats in store for the JB update...



[ features ]

  1. Easy to flash update.zip via recovery
  2. Prerooted and busybox installed
  3. working CWM recovery is included in kernel
    [ To enter recovery keep pressing VOLUME UP button AFTER u see the "PINK" LED at bootup (Sony logo) ]
  4. insecure kernel
    • ro.secure=0
    • usb debugging enabled
    • /system & rootfs mounted as RW



[ whats not working? ]


you tell me!


please report other things as and when you find them



[ requirements ]

  • unlocked bootloader
  • previously on stock .253/.307 JB ROM or roms based on that [since some components of THIS rom contain files from those firmwares]
  • supplied ROM
  • any existing kernel with recovery
    OR
    just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot



[ how to install ]

  1. download the ROM and save it on SDCARD
  2. reboot device into recovery
  3. flash the ROMs update.zip (this will take some time)
  4. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU WIPE DATA WHILE IN RECOVERY!
  5. thats it now reboot device
  6. at first boot device the NFC firmware will get updated wait for process to be completed
  7. after a few reboots the ROM should stabilize!
  8. enjoy!

[*]any existing kernel with recovery
OR
just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot

You said in the other topic to have a .307 kernel with recovery! But since you already release this can i flash the kernel inside with fastboot after unlocking my bootloader and enter directly to recovery and flash the Rom?

Can I do this starting from an old .350 Rom with root and them unlocking the bootloader so I could flash your kernel?

Sorry but I never unlock a bootloader and flashed any custom kernel...It's my first Xperia phone!

Thanks :)

Quick question. Can we use your custom v8 kernel with this?

And thank you for all your effort with kernel and this leak.

Reserved for feedback: Roughly a half hour ;)

UPDATE:

Just flashed a few minutes ago and everything seems fine so far.

Camera launches very quickly from lock screen. Still slight delay launching from app drawer.
ROM seems extremely smooth thus far, no graphical glitches etc.
Too soon for Wi-Fi or battery life.
Quick Settings is nice, (up to 10 customisable panels similar to Niobac's mod)


Thanks Doom :D

Wow great Work DooM Thanks a lot!!!

i know you don't like stupid questions but there is one very important Thing...

is it possible with 4.2.2 to move additional app data (/internalSD/Android/data and /internalSD/Android/odd) to external SD Card??? this is the only major issue to be restricted to the limited 12GB internal Memory for ALL Application data...

It would be awesome if it is movable now without root

Backup TA beforehand ;)

99.999999999 % it won't boot with v8, just use provided kernel :)
Thanks mate. Will first flash to .307 to update baseband (as I have C6602 and didn't updated), then will flash 4.2.2
