Thread Closed Email Thread
I love DooMKernel by DooMLoRD , but he does not have Z3 (also Z3 Compact).
So I started to port DooMKernel for Z3 and Z3 Compact.
Please do not ask me to add something, I don't know much about kernel and git right now...

What is FOTA kernel recovery?

NOTE: this is old info
Xperia doesn't have recovery partition for user,
but we have FOTA kernel partition for OTA.
Since we have to unlock bootloader and OTA won't work on unlocked,
we can re-use useless FOTA kernel as recovery partition using Dees-Troy's "extract_elf_ramdisk".

With FOTA kernel recovery, you can update your recovery without updating kernel.You can flash images to FOTA kernel by fastboot command like
Code:
fastboot flash recovery fotakernel.img

To enter into FOTA recovery, press power key when LED is on.

How to restore DRM functions?
When you unlock bootloader you will lose X-Reality, noise reduction and so on,
but you can restore them!
Original thread is here, but I updated steps for Z3 and Z3 Compact.

1. Download zip from original thread
* Choose KitKat version (for 4.4) or Lollipop version (for 5.0)

2. Place zip in internal or external storage of your device

3. Reboot into recovery and do Factory Reset

4. Reboot into flashmode and flash FTF with Flashtool
Any FTF is OK, but of cource use FTF for same version you are using now.
Wipe: Check APPSLOG and CACHE
Exclude: Don't check

5. Close Flashtool, unplug and plug your phone and reopen Flashtool, then relock bootloader
Click BLU icon to show relock button and click it.

6. Flash FTF (same as 4.)

7. Close Flashtool, unplug and plug your phone and reopen Flashtool, then unlock bootloader
Click BLU icon to show unlock button and click it.

8. Reboot into fastboot mode and flash my kernel

9. Reboot into recovery and install DRM Restore zip

10. Reboot

11. Done!

After doing this, do not restore old data since it will revert DRM restore.
You can restore system with recovery and use Titanium Backup or something to restore app data.
Note: When you flash new ROM (not kernel), you must flash DRM Restore zip.

If you get "net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" when connecting xda,
please disable PrototypeProtection with Titanium Backup or something similar.

Thanks for this. Also, I donated to Doomlord lately, in the hope he might end up buying a Z3C (and also just a general thank you for all he's done for the Android development community).

It doesn't work, it goes into bootloop, i couldn't even boot into cwm afterwards
i had the to reflash CWM thrugh fastboot and then i could boot my device.
firast i thought it could be related to cooperate mail, so i removed password and account
and tried to flash the kernel again, same bootloop again. so i'll wait to there is a stable one
or am i doing something wrong?
fw xxx.105 rooted with cwm on it and all kinf of other stuff

What happened, I don’t experienced anything but seamlessly perfect… I love this kernel and my experience now in my z3c is absolutely great! Try to re download maybe you got the corrupted downloaded.

One member confirmed it's working on his D5803 .105, so it might be corrupted download.
Please redownload from mirror (mega).

Indeed, I believed it is corrupted copy… for me .105, I highly recommend using this kernel, truly awesome! the graphic really works very well now, the battery perform very fine as well, I liked the new version of the cwm too! I think a lot of benefits will provide this to your z3c device, many thanks @AndroPlus you rock men! Cheers

flashed on my z3c with .105. no bootloops, haven't come across any other issues yet. I will say that my battery life seems to be lasting a bit longer. i'll keep an eye on it for the next couple of days and report back! I still haven't played with any kernel settings. thank you for porting this over!! if you have any suggestions for the kernel settings let us know!
