720p30 Video Recording Mod for Various 2011 Xperia Devices Running CM10

In the past few years, Sony Xperia devices have come to be known for their exemplary camera performance. However, the camera performance of even today’s high end devices will seem a bit outdated in a couple of years, and naturally, the same could be said for yesterday’s greats such as the .

While the 2011 Sony Xperia lineup featured more than adequate image capture abilities for the time, these devices are now three years old. As such, they lack modern staples such as 720p video recording and the like. But thanks to XDA Forum Member miniuser123, at least video capture is no longer an issue for those running CM10. And with the mod installed and configured, you should be able to capture HD video at up to 30 fps.

Miniuser123’s modification comes in the form of a simple flashable zip, which is installed after flashing your ROM and kernel. It is important to note that users of certain aftermarket camera applications will not initially see the full 30 fps in their videos. However, miniuser123 was kind enough to include a few quick steps to check for frame rate issues and fix them if they arise.

If you’ve got an Xperia Mini, Mini Pro, Active, or Live with Walkman and are running CM10, make your way over to the original thread to get started.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
