Xperia ZL’s White Balance Ported

When the Xperia ZL was released, it shipped with Sony’s brand new screen calibration software called White Balance. This software allowed users to separately adjust the white balance, color saturation, and hue of the ZL’s screen. A most useful and practical addition, especially considering the importance the screen is to a satisfying smartphone experience, it’s with surprise that Sony did not include this in their latest flagship, the Xperia Z. However, worry not, as not only has White Balance been ported to the Z, the Xperia T, V, and TX can also get their hands on the cake.

The original port is for the Xperia Z, made to work by XDA Forum Member mw1kaduxx, with the other devices receiving support courtesy of XDA Forum Member AliAlsuhail. The installation methods for these devices are pretty much the same, with T, V, and TX users required to perform an extra step. Users of all four of these devices must download the provided White Balance zip file and flash it through recovery or manually push each file in the zip to their respective directories on the phone and set the correct permissions. Users of the T, V, and TX will have to subsequently flash XDA Senior Member gm007‘s Xperia Z Settings mod in order to get White Balance to operate correctly.

AliAlsuhail has acknowledged that the port for the T, V, and TX may incur some peripheral bugs when adjusting the brightness through the settings menu. However an updated port has been released by XDA Senior Member recoba23 that may put an end to some of these operational flaws.

For more details, downloads and instructions, visit the original thread for the Xperia Z or the Xperia T, V and TX.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
