        to DE-ODEX my ROM , my model is c906, can I use these files?

  3. Badhan Ganesh March 6, 2014 at 1:08 am - Reply

    Have you tried it? Does it really allow you to capture 4k videos in mid-range phones? No lag, no stuttering, no file writing issues??

    • Anurag Kumar March 6, 2014 at 1:41 am - Reply

      Well TimeShift Video works well 120 fps and slow motion akk good.

      4k libs files are not added yet, as soon as they are posted 4k will be available to record.

      Z1 z1c zu shouldn’t show any lags but anyother handset like XZ ZL ZR will show lag surely.

      Try visiting the original thread by dev.

    you have just screwed my Z1 now i did all the things mentioned here, i’m rooted, deodexed, .136 and after flashing the libs nothing’s working! even replacing the SemCameraUI the camera just disappeared!

    • Anurag Kumar March 6, 2014 at 3:32 pm - Reply

      That’s bad, don’t panic just restore your old stock camera files.

      P.S. All files are from the developer not by ourself, you may get success in porting and sometimes you don’t.

    Thank you for the article 🙂

    I am using NUT’s deodexed ROM

    i have installed super user mod .. but still when i install by the way you have suggested here, it gives “camera not available” error.

    Can you suggest me some other way to deodex the official 0.290/1.136 firmware ???

    Can you give the firmware details that you are using??

    • Anurag Kumar March 13, 2014 at 2:24 pm - Reply

      Try this app, here Timeshift Vide working fine but 4K has some issues-

      Do you have SuperUser Mod ?

      • karthik March 13, 2014 at 3:47 pm - Reply

        thank you so much 🙂

        i had super user mod, still i flashed the super user mod zip and then flashed the timeshift video and it worked 😀 😀

        i will try other apps once i go home and i will let you know 🙂

        • whazz March 14, 2014 at 11:05 pm - Reply

          Does it really,really work with 120 fps (not lagging at all) or is it like this .
          Because thats 30 fps!

          • Anurag Kumar March 14, 2014 at 11:08 pm -

            Have you tried this new updated version –

            For some it is laggy and for some not, some are able to install and some are not…even dev has no idea why it is happening..! Hope we need to wait untill Sony rolls it officially on other phones so we can have real 120 fps video 🙂

          • whazz March 15, 2014 at 4:59 am -

            Ah, ok thank you. Do you think timeshift video will come out in the playstore for the z devices?

          • Anurag Kumar March 16, 2014 at 2:35 pm -

            Nope z2 has supervideocamera.apk which contains timeshift video and 4k app so it seems both apps are necessary for either to work.
            Sony will update these apps only in firmware update.

    Xperia z1, .136 firmware.
    Timeshift is working, but the slowmo is very laggy. 4k is installed but when I open it it says something like ‘no camera available’.
