Sony’s Smart Social Camera ported to Xperia L and Xperia M

Xperia social camera_5Sony’s Smart Social Camera has been integrated into the company’s Android 4.3 update for all Xperia handsets that have been updated so far. It will be a key part of Sony’s camera UI in 2014 and the ability for third-parties to integrate with Sony’s camera is a big differentiator from other brands.

There are still a number of 2013 Xperia handsets where we await news of an update schedule, including the Xperia C, Xperia L and Xperia M. If you own the latter two, then there is some good news for you as xperiaz2 from XDA has ported the Smart Social Camera for these devices.

This will also give you access to a number of Sony’s camera apps including AR effect, Social live, Info-eye, Motionshot, Timeshift Burst, Motiongraph amongst others.

You can install this port through CWM recovery, so your phone will need to be rooted. There are separate flashable zip files depending on whether you are running Android 4.1.2 (single-SIM Xperia M owners) or Android 4.2.2 (Xperia L owners). You can find more information and the download links here.

    Not familiar with term ‘CWM’. Can anyone guide how to install using cwm ?

  • Quark Gluon

    Your phone has to be rooted first, then install the CWM, then install the app via CWM. How? Go to XDA Developer forum for the particular device.

  • saif

    Can you elaborate “then install the CWM” a bit. Is it a app or what?

  • hanson eze

    It’s a recovery, that allows installing zips (which may be from custom Roms to awesome mods like this one), backup and restoring roms and other cool things.

  • Samuel

  • Samuel

    Yes, just update to 4.3 and you will get the awesome camera.

  • Caio Faria

    Xperia T dont have Social Live and Info-Eye :/

  • Caio Faria

    Where you download Social Live and Info-Eye? Do you have the Camera Widget?

  • Samuel

    If you are on 4.3 try to download them from the play store, if not possible it is because they are “exclusive” for the Z1. You will need to root your phone to manually install those and other apps.
