Yes, restoring data in twrp will disable the mod, so it's a no go. Do a Titanium backup instead, as you mentioned already :)

Wiping data is a big detriment for most users as seen. Read this OP?
I also don't trust titanium data restore it's never 100% reliable. I'm stuck with v2. For now.
Appreciate the good work though, most people would be lost without this mod!

Great Work! Unlocked my Bootloader ( backed up DRM ofc ) and flashed this on latest Firmware along with Androplus Kernel

Hopefully you can make this work the Z5 and the Z5 Compact because there's currently no way to root those devices without unlocking Bootloader

This looks promising. But could someone answer these questions:

1. Can i keep using the custom rom (ZyxxOS) i'm using on my Z3, which requires an unlocked bootloader to install, with this mod or will it break? Does using this mod force me to go back to stock rom?

2. Will this mod reactivate the ability to use 60 FPS at 720p and 120 FPS at 480p when recording video? I seem to have lost this ability when i installed the custom rom, and no app i've tried so far can go above 30 FPS regardless of resolution. The official Sony camera app 2.0 cannot be installed on a Z3 with unlocked bootloader.

3. Is the official Sony audio system and equalizer part of this mod? I think i lost that too when installing this custom rom.

Hi,
1)no, the mod will work on ANY STOCK OR STOCK BASED ROM, so it won't do any disturb to these ROMs
2,3)no, the mod will only restore DRM function such as bionz, X-R, camera noise cancelling etc,it won't add any additional ability or linking to other things like the problem you met :)

Use "A better Camera" for CM. It has a better picture quality than stock Sony or Google cam. Also the colors are more vibrant. So it is a good workaround for the missing functions on CM based ROMs.

How does it do that without the drm features like noise cancellation and bionz (which i believe handles image processing) ?

I am no programmer, so I never cared about the how. Maybe the BIONZ is better to reduce noise in dark areas, but color improvement seems to be possible through software.

I want to install MultiROM Recovery on FOTAPartition with AndroPlus Kernel...
DRM function restore with AndroPlus Kernel is working at the moment.

Can i savely wipe the FOTAKernel partition or should i leave it stock?

    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

    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.

    To ALL DRM mod users:
    Thanks for the support to this mod again, to made the mod better and more simple to newbies, we will releases a all new and simple way to made the DRM mod working better. Please read some notes below it.
    1)the new version will release within 96hrs as i gotta work and not have much time to write the script
    2)the new version will just take a 3 wipe and a flash to work, no need to do the such difficult thing like before(like flash old ftf,un&re lock bootloader several times)
    3)the support to Z3+ devices may still not support now as the mod doesn't support to 64bit chipset, but we are still fixing and made it available to these devices.
    4)after the new version release, the main researching team EXR required some donations to support them as they do the mod with a couple of risks to hard brick their devices, so if you can made a donations to support them, they will be happy and gain more power to made the mod better, you can made the donation to my PayPal and made a mention to this mod and I will transfer the donations to them, thanks for your support and understanding :)

    Hope you have a great experience with the mod

    To Xperia Z3 unlocked BL users
    To let the Function reworked on your Unlocked Z3 and other Z3 users, Team EXR and YKG are going to invite SOME testers(but not limited) that can help the test on this mod by PM to me.(because both of us don't have the z3 itself
    WARNING: We are fully welcomed the Z3 users who want to help the mod work perfectly, but before you PM to me, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK ON THE REQUIRE CONTITION:
    >An Unlocked bootloader Z3
    >Backup and recovery knowledge(System & Kernel)
    >The knowledge to use Flashtool
    >The Psychological preparation for brick,bugs etc. on your Z3
    >Patient...
    >Times
    >Comprehension


    After looked the require condition above, heres the several reason why we must have the tester which have the knowledge to test the mod
    >This test will going to have the over-device flashing firmware ftf to Z3(Return from 4.4.4 to 4.4.2), and it may appear tons of bugs that may let you crazy, so patient is really needed
    >As I said, the test will have over-device flashing, so the knowledge to full kernel & Rom recovery is really needed
    >Psychological preparation, the side effect of the over-device flashing may cause your phone UNSTABLE(On test only, when finished it will be normal.)
    >Comprehension, the step of the test is really complex (but not too deep),so you may need to reconfirm the step before you do the test

    FOR MORE INFORMATION YOU CAN PM TO ME TO KNOW MORE,
    IF THE TEST ARE SUCCESS,YOUR NAME WILL BE TAGGED AS A BIG WORD ON THIS THREAD'S OP.
