So after i installed 12.1.A.1.201 and tested it for 2 days full use i have noticed the following...
Good job to developers about this great firmware... :smileysmileythumbsup:
And now to my point
Unfortunately flickering is not fixed..
Here you can see the problem (not my videos)
On 1st video you cannot see it clearly because i think he don't have brightness to max.. but if you set video to 720p you can see it on 25 sec and above.. thats exactly my and many more users problem (but not all)... its minilag (not only flickering) every 1 sec.. if i set brightness lower than 70% i cant see the flickering but the minilag still exists even in 0% brightness
I will say it again.. problem is on kernel (because that flickering-minilag is noticable on cwm or twrp recoveries if 4.3 kernel is installed, even if i dont install any rom)! do something plz...
I dont know if that helps.. but if i record my screen with an app eg SCR Screen Recorder Free ★root there is not flickering on video when i watch it to pc..
and plz dont tell me its hardware problem because 4.1.2 works perfect without flickering and 0 problems..
i have tried following.
Users have reported same problem for Xperia Z running 4.2.2 (not all users) but it fixed on 4.3

Hey mate...try using app that control screen brightness(i have no idea what app)...see flickering still persist??

thank you but i have tried everything.. also this app (Lux lite).. its not autobrightness sensor problem.. its not rom problem.. it is kernel problem in my opinion or something else.. i have tried everything even CMs have the flickering.. even recoveries cwm/twrp (if you know what i mean) dont post me any more fixes there is nothing i can try more.. i will stay with 4.1.2 untill developers fix it or realease kitkat

Just an Idea... Is the screen protector over the sensor? If so, remove it and check it out.

After 3 days of use, 201 begins to lag, some app like facebook,cam becomes unresponsive... In general it's some improvement over 266, but i could be much better still 254. best when looking to performance.

Rickard (stuff) said he will forward this and attached video... also he said that he have tried 3 different phones and he didnt saw any flickering neither the developers... but they will invastigate it i think..
So the only sure is that this problem is on some devices not all... but im sure there is a fix because the same thing was happening to xperia Z with 4.2.2... some users had this issue but some not.. but with 4.3 issue dissapeared from xperia Z...
So the only thing we can do is patience
