Xperia Z3 LinuxRoM Update

According to International Business Times, the LinuxRoM, based on the Android Marshmallow update, comes with a new range of performance tweaks, short-cuts, and extended battery life, including a number of value-added features to improve user experience.

As with other custom ROMs, it is best that users know the flashing process properly before they install the custom ROM. Not flashing the device properly could lead to a bricked phone. Likewise, people are advised to back up their data so they can restore things should installation go haywire. A note of caution, though: warranties will be voided once the Android device has been subject to custom ROM installation.

Disclaimer: Providers of the update cannot be held responsible for what happens to the device following update. Users can update at their own risk.
