Default Most popular Rom

I bought a second hand xperia play a few days ago and now looking to whizz things up a bit with a new Rom.

It's already been rooted but looks to have a stock Rom running

Here's the details

2.3.4

Kernal version 2.6.32.9-doomkernelDooMLoRD@chaos#10

Build number 4.0.2.A.0.42



Basically I'd like a properly established Rom without the bloatwear, every time I open task manager theres about 15 things open when I'm not using them

Sounds good, how do I install it in simple terms? Sorry if I sound like a orange :-S

Is it just a straight install or do I need to mess with kernels etc,


How's yours set up? Rom/Kernel etc


Help is much appreciated

Since it already has doomlord's kernel on it, it is rooted and the bootloader is unlocked, so you can probably use fastboot to install most roms. If you want compatibility for all the games, stick with GB. If you go to an ICS build, you'll likely have problems with certain games crashing, graphical errors, or gamepad not working.

I have no problems with the gamepad so far using DarkForest ICS.
I tried ICS++, I prefer Darkforest still. Probably sticking with it till the real ICS.
There are so graphical issues, but its pretty nice, no bloatware either.

If you already have a kernel with recovery, all you need to do is install the .zip file for the ROM through it.

Put the zip on your sd card, reboot the phone. While it boots and the light turns blue, press the back button.

I attempted to update the kernel earlier and bricked my phone, I the fastboot method and actually completed the flash, when I powered on the mobile it was just displaying a black screen,

After looking about I got the stock rom and flashed it, and its working again!

Now my mobile is on stock rom with stock kernel,

It displays a message saying theres a system update available but when I connect to pc I get some message saying the software cannot be installed because the device has unauthorized software on it, I also got this message before I flashed to the stock firmware so it seems that they know my mobile was rooted etc and cant update through their software...


Could someone kindly walk me through what I need to do to put doomkernel v13 and jokawild rom on,

Thanks
