INTRODUCTION

Here's my latest rom based this time on Lollipop, I've called it eXistenZ Y.

The main difference with the previous eXistenZ is that I've added many new features directly inside the settings, that means that you can choose what you want and apply it directly.

All these new features are coming from the best Custom rom available like CM12, BlissLP, Cataclysm, SlimLP, Disco, ...

So you have the perfect mix between stock Sony rom and all these one.

Other advantage is that you don't need to install Xposed to add new features, so you will have a better stability.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have some Sudden Freezing and restart problems

A: Try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=3853


How to avoid problems with Quick Toggles

A:
  • Don't use too much Quick Toggles, add only the ones that you're using regularly.
  • The first Notification must always be ABOVE the Navigation bar, if not you may have issue while expanding the panel. You have many way to do that, increase the number of tiles per row, do not enlarge the first rom, remove brightness slider, ...



Q: Heads Up isn't working or doesn't wotk for some applications.

A:
  • Be sure that Heads Up in turned on in eXistenZ Heads Up & Notification settings.
  • Heads Up is used by default only for the apps who have Heads Up set as prior option to display notifications inside there code. This is the case for apps like Conversations, Hangout, ...
    If you want Heads Up notification for a particular application, go in eXistenZ/Heads Up & Notifications/Launcher Applications only (or All Applications), select the apps and activate "Force Heads Up".

This is like that and not the same as stock to allow Advanced Notifications managment


Q: I can't mount System partition to RW or delete system apps?

A: Set SELinux mode to permissive with pre-installed app SeLinuxModeChanger.

Q: Why haven't you added automatic theme accent coloring for Quick Toggles, Icons, ...?

A: There is an Hexadecimal color picker who is way more interesting and give you more personalization options.

If you want to find what's the HEXadecimal code used by the theme you are using to apply it, use an app called "Color Picker" available at Play Store.

Do a screenshot with the color you want and open it with Color Picker app, touch to find Hexadecimal code, paste that code with FF at the beginning.

So if the HEX code found by the app is 5e395a, paste that: FF5E395A


Q: Hey, that thing doesn't work!

A: Check if there isn't an (*) at the right of setting description, that means that you must restart SystemUI.

If it is not the case, try to enable/disable option a few time and reboot or read thread to find an answer.


Q: How can I have stock Sony's icons for Battery?

A: Go in settings/eXistenZ/Status Bar

Check "Sony's Battery Icon" and restart SystemUI (at bottom) then go in Battery Status and select Hidden as Indicator


Q: How can I have stock Sony's icons for Signal, Wifi and Stamina?

A: Go in system/vendor/overlay and delete SystemUI-Overlay-exz_statusbar_icons.apk

Q: How can I have reject by message option while receiving a call?

A: Go in system/vendor/overlay and delete InCallUI-Overlay-reject_msgs_drawer.apk

Q: Why the Quick Toggles animations are not working anymore?

A: Quick Toggles animations are only working in you are not coloring the icons, coloring engine isn't able to color animated images actually.

So to restore animations, turn off Custom color switch in settings/eXistenZ/Notification Panel/Display Options


Q: Double tap anywhere to sleep can't be turned off?

A: The switch in Lockscreen settings is only working when Double tap to sleep is turned off in Status Bar options.
