If you own a Sony device, then you can own Sony Xperia Z5 apps right now, right away. All you need is a custom recovery to be able to install and use the Xperia Z5 apps, even when the device itself is yet to hit stores.
Well, that is possible thanks to Xperia Z5’s system dump leaking out on the Internet (thanks to Jozinek!). Next, developer baris27 took the apps from the dump and made necessary modifications to make them compatible with other Sony devices.
Required? Well, you need to have a custom recovery installed on your Sony device for this because the apps have been grouped into a zip file that is flashable using custom recovery. Either of TWRP and CWM recovery will do just fine.
While, for non-Sony devices, simply install the APK of the apps provided below under the title ‘Type 2’.
Once you have the TWRP/CWM recovery, download the zip files from below and then flash them using the recovery. Reboot and you will have all Sony Xperia Z5 apps listed below for a given download installed and working on your Sony device.
Moreover, you need to have Sony firmware/ROM installed on your device, as it might not work on custom ROMs like CyanogenMod (CM).
