1/ Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1628264
2/ pick out and download the "stock ICS 4.1.B.0.587" unzip / unrar it so that you have one large .ftf file.
3/ Go to http://www.flashtool.net/download.php
and get FlashTool for your platform
3.1/ Start flashtool and click the lightning icon.
3.2/ Select the .ftf file using the source folder file browser. (otherwise drop the .ftf file in the C:\Flashtool\firmwares folder)
3.3/ Click flash and follow the on screen instructions.
4/ Get mike's fantastic rom from http://legacyxperia.basketbuild.com/...r=main/cm11.0/
5/ Extract the boot.img from mike's rom
6/ (optional) get gapps from http://legacyxperia.basketbuild.com/...r=main/cm11.0/
7/ Load mike's rom and gapps .zip files onto the SDcard of your phone.
8/ (optional) backup the data on your phone (apps/other data not on the cloud or sdcard)
9/ if you're on windows cd to the C:\Flashtool\x10flasher_lib directory
10/ if you're on linux cd to the Flashtool directory and "sudo" your commands
back to mike's instructions:
11: fastboot erase system
12: fastboot erase userdata
13: fastboot flash boot boot.img
14: Enter recovery, go to mounts and storage
15: Format /system, then /data and then /cache (Important step!)
16: Flash the cm file that you loaded onto your sdcard
15: (optional) Flash gapps if you want google apps (recommended package is the one provided by mike)
hopefully that should get you started...
As for my part - ART isn't working on my ray with Apex launcher... is not ready for daily running...
