DISCLAIMER: Please don't ask for ROM, dump, files, where I got the ROM etc etc etc. Can't say anything and will ignore any requests.


Next patch version for the Z is still 4.1.2 but has some optimizations, let me name a few:

- Soft keys + notification bar background changed, it is now black and looks a lot better.
- There is an option to adjust the white balance of the screen
- There is an options to enable/disable the notification light
- Stamina seems to work much better, better standby time plus LED notification works with stamina on. Also noticed that apps in stamina exception list work much better now.
- WiFi reception is MUCH better.
- Camera opens faster than before, still a bit slow for my taste but it is a step to the right direction.
- The device is faster in general. Have tested this with another not updated device and it is in the scale of ms but still it is faster and more responsive.

I might be missing a few things here but it is a nice patch, I know it is not 4.2 but still it is a good patch.

Accepting questions to test things but I can't always answer very fast.

EDIT: forgot to write that the exploit for root doesn't work anymore.

Why it's looking like a wishlist to me :/
No Offend but without screenshots, everything looks like a rumor to me now.

This is most likely real! Haven't heard all of the listed improvements but we received internal confirmation on most of them.

Does this one already include the proper Music Unlimited integration in Walkman or is that planned for another release? I know it's coming but never had any confirmation on whether that would be in 4.1 or 4.2.
