DISCLAIMER: I AM Not Taking ANY RESPONSIBLE TO YOUR CRASHED SYSTEM OR ELSE,AND PLEASE ASK FOR MY PERMISSION BEFORE YOU INCLUDE IT TO YOU MOD OR WHAT
We have our best Xperia phone with a lot of tech like BionZ, X-Reality(shortcut X-R),Noise Cancelling(Z2 ~ Z4 ONLY) which is really awesome, but most of us know if we unlock the bootloader of Xperia phone, ALL THESE TECH WILL NOT WORKING AGAIN,AND WE WILL FACE A LOT OF LOUSY PICTURE QUALITY AND A LOT OF PROBLEM!!
but now no need to fear anymore, The Team EXR from china and Team THS has presented the LATEST MOD For the people who need the X-R,BionZ worked like charm and unlcok the bootloader without any fear, DRM RestoreZ !
What is the feature of this mod?​
Well, As the thing I said, Unlocked the bootloader of S800 latest device may cause the BionZ , X-R, Noise canceling(Z2,Z3) may not fully worked or even frozen by the actionthat you made.
ok, in a conclusion , This mod is for:
>Reactivate X-Reality,Super Vivid Engine
>Reactivate Noise cancelling
>Reactivate the picture noise that will appear in dark situation( BionZ)
>Reactivate the red-green noise that appear in dark capturing
*THIS MOD WONT RECOVER THE REAL DRM KEYS THAT YOU LOST AFTER UB(except you do the TA backup),THIS MOD IS RESTORE THE FEATURES THAT LOSS BY UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER ONLY!

Well, Except this the main BANEFITS of this mod is
The size of it was EXTREMELY Light!
>This mod is only for Unlocked Bootloader Xperia devices
>This mod are just restored the funtion like X-R,BionZ that will disabled when the DRM keys disappeared.
>This MOD WILL NOT RESTORE YOUR HANDSET'S REAL DRM KEY!
>You can post the situation like is it worked or any discussion on this thread :) I will try to made this work well on most of the devices
**AND please note that the mod will only try to restore the function that depends on DRM key ONLY, DO NOT THINK THIS IS SOME KIND OF IMPROVEMENT MOD TO SPECIFIC SOFTWARE LIKE MUSIC,CAMERA etc.please note this as I am not going to reply THIS KIND OF PM

Extra:
~Why the mod doesn't support ROMs like AOSP AOKP etc?
>2 reason:
1) Original google system doesn't has any modification by sony
2)Original google kernel doesn't has any modification by sony
thats it.
~how do I keep my things work if I am from KK(4.4)and I have done for the restoration procedure?
>just flash the lolipop rom and flash the mod.zip and all will be worked
~Screen mirroring not work?
>Use this method by @triggaz

Screen mirorring fix for all who unlocked their bootloader, tested and works great:

Just follow this steps:

1: change /system/etc/wfdconfig.xml

1
to

0

2. add below line in /system/build.prop
persist.debug.wfd.appmonitoring=1

3. restart the phone
~Is New version support 4.4 KK?
>For actually we don't test it on 4.4 rom as we think most of the users are went to LP already.of course you can test it if you have made a backup before.



So what changes will appear?
Look at the Screenshot!

I am not professional of that things. So, I have questions.
I have a Z2 and I lost DRM keys. So, camera, bionz, remoteplay etc features are not working anymore. I didnt install custom rom. I am using official .167 4.4.4 firmware.

Firstly, should I install deoxded ROM?
Yeah punch get a deodexed one on there, then run this. Op if this makes remote play work ill marry ya lol

Very cool, but I would like to know how this mod is supposed to work.
Does it just reactivate all the features OR does it put DRM keys inside your phone? :confused:
The second one could be very dangerous...

It is indeed!


It's very hard to tell if it's enabled, don't want to fall victim to the placebo effect!
A quick way would be to take a picture in very low-light conditions and see if the noise has gone away.
But I'm talking about z3 and z3 compact. I don't know if z2 has the same problem after unlocking..

Is there a way to tell if you still have TA keys? Can you relock your bootloader without them?
Yes you can relock bootloader withour TA keys by using flashtool.

This hasnt made xreality work on the new firmware, but i dont care about xreality to be honest, gonna try playstation apps now.

Anyone else trying this for remote play or playstation app, its worth remembering that root and unlocked bootloaders appear to be causing issues, so if this does work we still may need to lock bl and/or uninstall su first

I have stock 23.0.1.A.0.167 .
I have Unlocked bootloader (lost DRM keys). Root. Doomlord stock kernel advanced 7.
Installed a patch through recovery to deodex rom (posted here http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-z2/development/stock-4-4-4-23-0-1-0-167-bug-free-t2929402). Wiped dalvik. Reboot.
Installed this DRM patch through recovery. Reboot.
I notice no changes, took a picture before deodexing and aplying patch, a picture after, and they both have the same amount of noise. I also notice no change with X-Reality.
Also, in service menu (*#*#7378423#*#* ) DRM still shows as erased.

It doesn't seem to have fixed anything for me on .167,

But it doe's appear to have wrote some files and a folder (im pretty sure its the same folder that vanished in may when i unlocked) in the dev-block-platforms directory

Now i've relocked my bootloader im wondering if that folder will stay if i flash another stock firmware, and if so would its presence cause keys to be wrote there, probably not but hey i got nowt else t do, so i'll just try anyway
