This is my first Rom/Mod for Android, a flashable (in recovery) prerooted version of the latest stock Roger Jelly Bean for LT28i. Prerooted and debloated with extreme privacy in mind. Removed were all face book, all social apps, all google apps including gsf and others. I even removed stock Messaging and Conversations. I recommend instead K9 Mail and TextSecure both free and available on the internet.

Other than rooting and debloating, no changes have been made. Since Sony hasn't released the official non-branded jelly bean version for LT28i, this rom/mod should help the users.

Again, this is the latest prerooted Xperia LT28i Roger's Jelly Bean stock, which as of today still can't be rooted post installation.

WARNING: If you soft/hard brick your phone, it is NOT my fault. Do it at your own peril. If you feel like complaining, NSA might listen.

Usual Instructions:

1. Enter Recovery;
2. Triple Format (format System, Cache, Data)
3. Flash Roger zip.

If you were on JB Kernel before, you are done, just Reboot and enjoy.
If you were on ICS, don't reboot, instead turn off your phone and do the following:

4. Flash JB Kernel from either Rogers or LT28h stock ftf. Untick everything and exclude everything, but kernel.

This is the download link:

To download, put your cursor on the file and click the arrow/download button on the right.

Enjoy.

I thought since I haven't made any changes to stock firmware, there is no need for screen shots. Once you reboot, you will see the usual JB screen and you'll have Superuser in your application drawer. You will also have E (as 2g), 4g (as 3g) and Lte, which is still smarter than AT&T's combined 4g icon. You will notice a much better battery life, especially that this disgusting google services framework that is basically connected to "home" all the time and records/transmits everything you do with your phone is gone. In my view, any "home" application, such as gmail, gplus, youtube, facebook or else, have just one purpose: to spy and record all your activities. You don't need those to access the associated services.

Here is a screenshot of my battery life. I am able to get 24 hours on a single charge with about 1 hour of voice calls over wifi and 4g, wifi on 24/7, 2 sip accounts active 24/7, moderate internet usage, messaging and K9 mail client on 24/7 (synching 5 mail accounts). Note WIFI taking 16% and Csipsimple (sip client) 13%. If I only use cellular voice calls, I get about 31-32 hours, which is pretty decent.

Moderators, I know you would want to move this post to the battery life section, but please don't, The purpose of this here is to illustrate my point on getting rid of social apps, google apps and google services framework and their effect on battery life.

Not sure the development section is the best place for a stock ftf file.
Yes I know it is pre rooted,
but DooMLoRd has made a windows script to root stock jelly bean.
And to get LTE you just flash the ICS lt28i baseband.
Also in order to get CWM recovery on your ION it needs to be rooted already.

For now, as this thread contains NO development, this thread is moved to the general section.

With all due respect, but

1. This is not an ftf file, but rather a zip flashable in CWM;
2. DoomLord's script CANNOT root Roger's LT28i jelly bean
3. Flashing LTE from ISC results in a buggy LTE connection, which indicates that apparently there are changes in JB LT28i radio
4. "in order to get CWM recovery on your ION it needs to be rooted already" That is true for any other rom/mod posted in development section. You can't get CWM unles you have root.

Right now, there is no way to root Roger's JB and the same is the only official release for LT28i. So, my mod/rom is the only way to have prerooted JB for LT28i (as opposed to LT28h).

Kindly return this thread to development section.

Regards

Wrong!!!
Doomlords script CAN root rogers jellybean firmware because i already provided him the kernel.sin and build.prop to do it. He added the update to his thread.
