Vi ho proposto diverse guide su come effettuare il modding di Sony Xperia Z3 (un dispositivo tra l’altro che ha richiesto sbattimenti di un certo livello prima di essere modificato).

Avete visto come installare diverse ROM android 7, come sbloccare il bootloader, fare il backup delle chiavi DRM e tanto altro, ma è giunto il giorno di darvi il download di qualche feature di un certo livello su questo meraviglioso smartphone.

Camera Stock Sony: ci siamo veramente arrivati?

Esatto. Incredibile ma vero, anche se il codice era closed-source, si è arrivati a fare il porting della camera stock anche su ROM Android 7.

Scaricatela da qui e installatela da recovery tramite la classica opzione Install da TWRP, dopo aver flashato la ROM Nougat che preferite.

Speciale: Cyberian Camera 8.0!

Il porting della camera stock, così com’è, non è affatto male (è la camera originale Sony, sfido a dire qualcosa in contrario), ma alcuni developer hanno….preso tutte le parti migliori delle varie app fotocamera di Z5, Z4 ecc. undendole e migliorandole in un progetto chiamato Cyberian Camera.

Installatelo subito dopo aver flashato il pacchetto Camera stock qui in alto e….avrete il massimo dalla vostra fotocamera! Scaricatela da qui.

Bug, problemi conosciuti?

Il tutto installerà anche l’applicazione Album stock Sony. Se la aggiornerete, non si aprirà più. Vi consiglio quindi di non aggiornarla.

I video a rallentatore, il cosiddetto Time Shift video, non funzioneranno. Qualche altra applicazione 3D potrebbe non funzionare, ma la maggior parte vanno senza problemi (dinosauri, volto in video, gnomi da passeggio ecc.).
