Do you have unlocked bootloader? The method mentioned there seems to be for unlocked bootloader devices.

There is another for locked bootloader devices in a different thread. Will try to post from PC later.

This is the latest post but seems unverified. http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...lb-ub-t3120214

This is an older method http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...0-454-t3115196

My back camera glass is scratched and the pictures I take are very blurry, worse than 5mp even in bright light.
Anyone has a solution? My phone is out of warranty and I dont want to pay any money to get it replaced....

I believe there's no solution to your problem, other than buying a new camera. You can only try opening the phone and cleaning the lens itself from the inside or just wiping the outer lens with a cloth.

Software wise, nothing can help you...

It could be. There are many reports of people doing that. Try it and if it does not work out you will always be able to come back to the proper country version.

Problem solved!
First I thought it was a software issue. I noticed the degradation in the image quality after I unlocked my bootloader. So I applied the Drm restore patch. I got the bravia engine and clear audio to work again but camera quality was still very bad .
Then I noticed scratches on the camera glass and realised it wasnt a software issue after all!
I searched the net and found a way to remove scratches by cleaning the glass with a qtip/earbud dipped in alcohol and it worked like magic!! I have much better camera quality now although not as good as it was when I bought my phone but quite happy with it now...
Thanks anyways

Hey, don't mention it. Press that thanks button, it helps a lot!

The 20MP superior auto is meant for Z1 and newer phones that have 20MP cameras. That module enables the Superior Auto to take pictures using that camera quality. Usually, when you select Superior Auto, you'll always see pictures taken at a smaller quality (in the ZR's case, it takes pictures using 9 instead of 13MP).

So, that Xposed module is useless for our phone.

In the xposed module description it says also works on xperia z 4.3 12mp thats why I was wondering if it would work for our XZR and if any one has tried it .Dont want a bootloop

By the way, it says that it won't work on LP because the guy who made that module doesn't want to test it there.
If I were you, I would skip that module.
