    Can i install this rom on c2004

  11. Anurag Dutta Chowdhury March 30, 2014 at 4:06 pm - Reply

    No better ram
    Better graphics with open gl 3.0
    and you cannot move any apps to memory card .

    And i pushed the theme to system/app and working .. But better option this to install the theme install bugfix and replace home.apk with xperia z1 home.apk .And no matter what theme you install volume slider will be vanished when theme is applied ..

    I assume the “PL” in C1905_15.4.A.0.23_Generic PL.ftf means it’s Polish. Is it safe to flash this to my English (UK) C1905?

    • Anurag Kumar May 31, 2014 at 6:08 pm - Reply

      Yes but you will get some regional PL apps then and next time update will be released for your device as when it comes for PL region..
