    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM requires an unlocked bootloader on Xperia Z3, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data.

    Nice! Can you post build sources?

    Linux User

    Runs great. Very stable generally. Only three bugs (two of which may not be strictly tied to this ROM)
    1. when attempting to search settings (magnifyng glass in settings) settings app crashes
    2. Google streetview crashes when you zoom to a certain point, and can’t install google plus (I installed gapps micro. that may be issue with that, rather than the rom itself)
    3. This may be a bug within facebook app, when at about tab, and once you choose more about Person, it sort of bugs out)

    Linux User

    Thank you very much for this. Working almost flawlessly. Fewer bugs than with the sony stock rom.

    Can confirm the problem Ashaman__ mentioned with searching the settings. It crashes the app. But aside from that I haven’t encountered any bugs (didn’t test streetview, I used the pico google apps package and haven’t installed that many apps yet)

    So thank you again for uploading this build!
