Xperia Camera 2 ported_4Sony Mobile updated the camera UI for the Xperia Z5 series earlier today with the Camera 2.0.0 update. So far, the update is only live on the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium, but the APK will also work on the Xperia Z3+ without modification.

However, if you own an earlier Xperia Z series model with 20.7MP camera, then you’ll be glad to hear that Camera 2.0.0 has been ported (as long as you have root). The Xperia Z5 camera port will work on the Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, Z2, Z3, and Z3 Compact. To install, hit the source link to download the zip file and then flash through recovery. There are still some bugs being ironed out, but keep an eye on the source link for future updates.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Hmm… why not ? it’s not that dangerous :P

    Well I have brick my xperia ion sometime but it’s so easy to recover it back.

    Just try it :P

  • Jaissal S

    Different subject matter… Has anyone had this bug on Z5 where all your widgets on your screen disappear randomly when unlocking screen? Happened twice to me. Even on latest build.

  • Alvin

    Too risky for me lol :P

    As i dont know where my laptop is and i don’t have any experience with rooting..

  • Tan Keeyong

    The theme pls?

  • Matt

    well if you decided to try there is 3 advice for you BEFORE you do it:

    :) im myself considering to buy z4 tablet but hindered by the inabilities to root without unlocking the bootloader

  • haxona

    Anyway anyone has the unmodded apk since Z3+ supports the unmodded one?

  • Nodar Sixarulidze
  • Mario Junior

    Same shit. What has been ported was just the app, not the image algorithm.

  • Mohit Verma

    haha.. tht was fckng fast….

  • bilomar

    New music app allows to choose between dark and light theme. And this site lags so fucking much on mobile

  • Brick

    Ehh, too much effort, I’ll wait for the official version.

  • saif

    Does anyone know how to root z1 without bootloader unlock

  • Igor Eisberg

    That’s because the “port” consists of only 3 lines of code replaces… Nothing complex.

  • Igor Eisberg

    Why are you using a smartphone then? For the show-off? Use a feature-phone, it’s risk-free.

  • Alvin

    Chill mate. It’s just a joke.

    You’re one of these people that screw people because of jokes that you can’t take.

  • Few days ago new Benz subsequent after earning 25,448$,,,this was my previous month’s paycheck ,and-a little over, $25k Last month ..4-6 h/r of work a day ..with extra open doors & weekly paychecks.. it’s realy the easiest work I have ever Do..

    You need to tie your shoe laces Kalvin!

    Though the app handles the ISO and shutter speed balance aswell as some other aspects beyond camera framework system and BIONZ post-processing.

  • matiiijas

    Interesting. I’ve just installed it on my Z2 and now I can shot HDR photos even in 15 and 20.7 MPX in manual mode. Before that it was available in max. 8 mpx shots only. Terrible HDR as usual, though.

  • Igor Eisberg

    By what you wrote, the replies, and that you wrote “Too risky for me” later, I don’t see how it is a joke 0.0

  • Alvin

    Umm… Because that part wasn’t a joke?

  • Igor Eisberg

    Exactly, that’s the thing I was commenting about…

  • Alvin

    Lol alright
    Will consider for rooting my phones…

  • Ruslan Halidov

    It’s because most of people really bad jokers.

  • Hans

    works great on my Z1C 5.1.1 Stock but i can´t change storage from internal to sd card

  • Alvin

    And it’s also because most of people have bad sense of humour.

  • Deckard_Cain

    I use a non-rooted smartphone and I am really happy with it.

  • Hej Pac

    does the new update will show in the software update in the z5 settings??
