If so is there a way to spoof the drm rights back. I have backed up the drm with ta tool and am reasonably knowledgeable with flashtool etc. Thanks for any comments
Camera gets bad of course , but if you backed them up you won't have much of a problem because you can revert everything back. I did that mistake and didn't backup my DRM keys. I was new to flashing etc. If you unlock your bootloader they're gone. There is no spoofing. But as you have backed them up, if you use a stock ROM you can use your DRM keys, there are methods for that. But in custom ROMs (as far as I know at least) there is no way to use DRM keys and functionalities of the DRM keys. You can surely see that this ROM didn't even have a camera, now it's being implemented, but still it has the fish-eye effect. If you are a camera lover, don't unlock your bootloader. But if you want to install a custom ROM you have to unlock it. You might stick with rooted stock ROMs.
