Working on my rooted Xperia ZR 4.4.4
thank you a lot for the information…. about your theme and soft keys how would I get it?
I think that the softkeys are from the Xposed Module “SoftkeyZ”
thank you…but I just found it…its a theme that would only affect your soft key
It is ugly as fcuk!! The last version was so much better!
The update is too bad.. it spoiled all the look and feel of the walkman app. its flat and ugly..
Xperia Sp user. stay away.. the illumination bar doesn’t blink on beats of the song after the update..
Fix bug again??
Just got the update… And I allready regret it. It’s okay but the lightbar in Xperia SP doesn’t blink
previous version was better looks ugly
Got it on my SP from update centre. Previous version was way better in terms of design & look. And SP users stay away from this update. Illumination bar doesn’t works now.
