but i dont want a "havy" rom like this one.
I like Iridescent_Zed_III odexed(or not odexed),but there is a weak wi-fi.I try difrends basebands,other kernel,still weak.....
Vanir aosp is using baseband 77, Iridescent_Zed_III is usin 77 too.
What makes the difrent?kernel?
to keep it short:
baseband has nothing to do with ROM. (you have to flash it manually, never changes on ROM flash. the 77 one is the last from stock rom
now difrences between vanir aosp & Iridescent_Zed_III:
- its latest android KK 4.4.2 running on 3.4 kernel (new & powerful, but not as stable as stock.)
-its BASED on android ICS 4.0.4 running on 2.x.xx kernel (dont know exact) its based on latest firmware we've got official from SONY. its the stablest one, when you will. but its laggy & old.
there are many things affecting the wifi (drivers inside rom, kernel, baseband, ''tweaks'' inside, even router's play a role, etc....) so its hard to say what exactly will make it better / worse. you will have to test it yourself to say if its better or not.
my advice: you say vanir had the better wifi, but its to ''heavy'' (even i dunno what u mean exactly..) so i would recommend to give Legacy Xperia ROM a shot. i think you will get the most out of it. also if you dont need to have the latest android (just want USE your phone) then use android 4.2.2 JB (CM10.1) its the bets mix of power & still very usable. in addition its keep very clean & lightweight.
