Sony Xperia Z1 Camera Ported to Xperia Z, Z Ultra, ZR, ZL
If there’s a take home message regarding development on Sony Xperia devices, it’s that what appears on one device will inevitably appear on another. Be it due to the developer friendly nature of the company or similarities in internal architecture, we’re not complaining.
We recently talked about how losing the TA partition on an Xperia Z1 could have disastrous effects on camera functionality if a backup is not made prior. And given other reasons to keep a backup of that partition, we would highly recommend that would-be rooters make a backup before unlocking. Luckily, though, that’s not the only news we have to report on the Z1’s camera.
Thanks to porting efforts by XDA Recognized Developer krabappel2548, the Xperia Z1’s camera software can now be installed on the Xperia ZR, Xperia ZL, Xperia Z, and Xperia Z Ultra. So what features does this upgraded camera software bring? According to the developer:
- Info Eye
– Augmented Reality effects
– Timeshift mode
– Manual Mode
– Social Cast mode
– Automatic mode
To get started, head over to the appropriate thread below:
- Sony Xperia Z
- Sony Xperia Z Ultra (Timeshift mode for the Z Ultra is not yet working)
- Sony Xperia ZL
- Sony Xperia ZR

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
