The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact was the thinnest and lightest waterproof tablet on the market at the time of its release. The tablet is underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor. None of that hardware really matter when it comes to the operating system, though, and that’s what we are looking to update with a new custom ROM after the break.

These are the best custom ROMs for the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact tablet for you to update, add new features, have more reliability and speed up your ROM.


Note: Make sure you check what model number the custom ROM is made for from the download links. Whenever we create a post such as this one, it means the model numbers are all thrown into the same article. Don’t assume that all custom ROMs will work for all model numbers. Each download link will mention what model number the ROM is for somewhere on the page, either in the custom ROM thread title or the original post closer to the download link. If you still don’t see it there then have a read of some comments or leave a comment yourself if you aren’t sure, and the custom ROM poster or other people subscribed to the thread will help you out.

The official CyanogenMod custom ROM is available for the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and ready for you to install. CyanogenMod custom ROMs are the most popular ROMs in the world and most people want to install them over any other. The Tablet Compact does not have many custom ROMs available at all, so it’s great to see the CyanogenMod team create this for device owners.

Features: CyanogenMod do not announce the features of their custom ROMs. They prefer you install the ROM to find out for your self.
