Since we got KitKat, I wanted something new and different, so I've created a new eXistenZ who will replace old ones.

The main difference with my previous works is that I am not allowing my users to do their own choices, that's why I am introducing the AROMA installer.

The main choice that you can made is the "Main theming" who can be Light or Dark, after that you will see many options, these options are according to me the most usefull ones, no need to have 20 differents systemUI...

  • Based on latest Xperia Z build.
  • All Applications and nearly all features based on latest Xperia Z3 build, others are updated version coming from other Xperias.
  • All Applications available in Light or Dark theming (Main theming).
  • All Applications FULLY themed, no missing part like the other modders!
  • Xperia Z3 In Call UI.
  • Xperia Z3 Ultra Stamina.
  • Xperia Z3 Settings.
  • Xperia Z3 Bluetooth Unlocking.
  • Xperia Z3 Power menu with Screen Recording.
  • All Framework changing according to Main theming (Dialog Box, Icons, Toggles, Switchs, Backgrounds, ...).
  • All Widgets changing according to Main theming.
  • Various Navigation Bar sizes (36DPI 42DPI & 48DPI).
  • Various Quick Settings styles (Default KK, Colored KK, JellyBean, eXistenZ).
  • Various Caller picture sizes (Default & Full Screen).
  • Various Boot Animations.
  • Various Emojis (Sony, Samsung, Apple).
  • Various Home Launcher options (4 Dock and App drawer choices).
  • Various LockScreen styles (KK, JB, Real AOSP).
  • Various Sound Mods.
  • Various Screen Off Animations (Fade out, CRT Horizontal, CRT Vertical).
  • Double Tap on Status Bar to turn screen off.
  • Ringtone & Notifications Volumes separated (Optional).
  • All Sony's Applications optionables.
  • All Google's Applications optionables.
  • Various Keyboards choices.
  • Various Browsers.
  • All Social's Applications optionables.
  • Various eXistenZ Widgets (Weather, Clock, On Off Tools, ...).
  • Optimized Sony Camera (No compression, 20MP in Auto Mode) with all Add on optionables.
  • Various Smalls apps.
  • eXistenZ Settings (App OPS, ...).
  • And many more...


All these screenshots have been made with the Theme Sappy or Sony Red

  • Reboot in recovery, Wipe Data, Cache and Dalvik Cache
  • Flash the rom.
  • Restore your datas (It may cause problems!!!)

  • When download is finished, select install, no need to clear datas.
  • Prompt Root autorization to OTA Updater, the phone will reboot.
  • Once you are in recovery, flash update found in SDCard/OTA-Updater/download

If you can't download the OTA Update, wait the server must be busy or use mirror in Download section.
