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.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
