Except for the camera bugs, seems to be stable. I've read somewhere about Sony releasing new sources for camera. Are these new sources used in this ROM?

You are correct in that Sony will be releasing new binaries for camera and this is indeed what we are using for PA on Sony. However this work will take time, but we will in the end have Nexus like support for Sony devices.

That's what we are waiting for, Nexus like support
However due to that nasty reversed fish-eye people just gave up, since Sony didn't release proper binaries and blobs. Lets see if that gets fixed with those releases.

Yeah. Making the camera work properly seems to be the biggest difficulty in developing for the Z3C. I will test every build and give feedback. Thanks!

I have a lot of problems with this rom! Sometimes I have lag and my phone has randoms reboots. The camera worked at the first time with a very bad quality. Now I can not acces to the camera because I got a error code.
Please fix this problems

@TomGus 1 hi I can't find your sources on the official PA repository. Are you using the sony open devices repos for device tree etc?

Hi, for the reboots etc this is a kernel issue. Currently we are using the 1.2.2 branch from sonyxperiadev which has an issue with vidc/iommu. This is fixed in the 1.3.3 branch but currently Camera is not yet supported. Once support is added we will move over. I can confirm that it is fixed as I am currently running from that branch at the sacrifice of no camera.

For your current camera issue please try a reboot or going into recovery and wiping dalvik/cache and trying again. Had this happen once and a reboot fixed it.

We are using Sony Open Devices repositories for all Sony Devices as seen in our dependency files.
