If you’ve got a Xperia Z or ZL and you’re prepared to be a little adventurous, you can grab the Xperia Z Radioactive ROM, complete with Honami apps.

Developer krabappel2548, dropped the ROM a few days ago and has assured us that the ROM is both fast and smooth. The ROM is based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and features apps ported from the Sony Honami system dump from last week.

Some of the Honami apps that have been added are:

  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Clock
  • Walkman
  • Video
  • Album
  • Phonebook
  • Camera
  • Sketch
  • Small apps
  • Launcher and widgets

These apps all showcase Sony’s new Xperia UI and the new Walkman app looks great too. Small apps is a multitasking feature which allows users to open up to 3 smaller versions of applications at the same time (check the screenshots below).

While krabappel2548 has assured us that the ROM is fast and smooth, remember that you are doing this at your own risk, That being said, you can now experience some of the Honami apps on your Xperia Z or ZL, so happy flashing people!

Check out the screenshots below for some of the Honami apps, or skip over to the Source link below to start flashing.

      Sony’s event was for the french launch of Xperia z ultra, we will have to wait for IFA

        Thanks for letting me know.

          It is real, I think it will be the successor of the Xperia Z.

          Why else will you have this system dump meant for the Honami?

          I think you shold grab an S4 now, since it is still a long wait, but if you wait, you will reap great rewards, like a Snapdragon 800 processor.

        Can i have your opinion. Should i wait for the Hanomi, it might not even be real, or grab the S4. My contract expires on july 28 and i can live with the iPhone 4S for a month longer after my contract expires.

          just decide by july 28. you might be or might not be convinced by the honami specs. clearer leaks will appear by then. just wait till the end of the month.

          • Pradeep Viswanathan R

            what are your concerns on the leaked specs of Honami ?

          • Joshua

            I love all the specs of the Hanomi, its making me drool. My biggest thing for a smartphone has to be the camera, as i love photography. A 20Mp camera with 4K recording ability is not bad at all.

            +1 i think only department Sony is not fighting with HTC or Samsung is the Software

          well i think Honami leaks show that its definitely going to be better than s4, so simply wait :)

    It will be great if handwriting like ZU will be available in Honami. If the floating touch of ZSola, eye tracking technology, smart scroll and pause from samsung will be an added feature for the honami, then it woud be very great. Please include the RESTART option and not only POWEROFF.
