There were various reports earlier that claimed the Sony Xperia Z1 camera breaks upon tinkering with the device’s bootloader and now Sony has made an official statement about the issue. “Warning! At the moment, unlocking the Xperia™ Z1 boot loader will stop the camera functionality. Note that Xperia™ Z1 is not listed among the supported devices”, says the official wording.
There is no workaround, at the moment, but Sony is not really in a position where they could let that happen, so we’re assuming there’s a fix being cooked up somewhere in the company’s labs.
We’ve just recently received the 2013 Sony flagship in our labs and we kicked off our coverage with the initial unboxing. Make sure to stay tuned to Pocketnow for a lot more, including comparisons and our full review.
