After the LG Optimus G and the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, now it's the Sony Xperia Z turn to get the unofficial Android 4.4 KitKat ROM treatment. that's the first of the 2013 flagship crop to get a KitKat ROM, if we don't count the Nexus 5, of course.
It is a stable ROM and most everything seems to be working, but since the mod is based on AOSP, there's no root or recovery here yet. The only minor quibbles are that you have to reboot twice for the Calendar to start syncing, and hit the home button when choosing a mobile network manually. Hit the source link if you are interested in installing it on your Xperia Z.

people really like to bash something above something... i have Z and it's just works like a charm.. no problem with the screen, as long as i can see the picture, read the text, capture the photo, listen the music, make a call and answer as well and Sony is doing great with their updates software frequently so what's the problem?? if you like it then get it but if you don't... go and find what fits on you, that's so simple.
