Hi, i've rooted my xperia play and wanted to know if their was a custom ROM out there that had everything working like stock.

Secondly, I have a pre loaded 8GB card on here, is there any way to increase internal app memory, maybe make 500 mb of the sd card part of it.

And anyone have a list of good games, that use the controller and aren't memory hogs on the phone.

PS can I use app2sd?? Also have attached pic of the ABOUT PHONE section on the play.

thank you

you will need your bootloader unlocked (if it isn't already) before you can flash custom roms... and aboyut the games and controller, most custom roms have a glitch that the circle only acts as a back button so dont really work as a control any more,

my opinion (and thats just it an opinion) stick with stock/stock-based if you want to use your controller with normal games! (emulators work fine as you can manually assign keys)

Hi, can someone tell me if the Darkforest 3.0.5 stock rom has everything working just like a stock rom ? gamepad, touch etc

Also is the battery life any good or should i change kernels?

Lastly i am going to format my sd card and do the Links2sd as mentioned above, i wanted to know if installing the Darkforest is as simple as just placing it on my external SD booting up to CWM and then flashing the ROM...?

thank you for any help (and for the help already given greatly appreciate it)

Hey, I'm in the same position, and was wondering if someone could link me to CWM for locked bootloaders, and to Darkforest 3.0.5? Also what would I have to do if a newer version of Darkforest comes out?

Unlocking your Bootloader is well worth doing.
