Wink [ROM & KERNEL] [RAY] [ST18i] ICS 4.0.3 SE Leaked ROM v2.2 [17-Feb updated ROM]

Hi guys,
Since there are SE 4.0.3 leaked rom for ARC, so I decided to port the ARC rom to our Ray.
I'm not a developer, just a ROM cooker.
This rom is based on leaked rom posted in ARC section
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1402854
thanks to caqo71 for providing the link, also specially thanks for the one that originally leaked the rom for us.

The purpose of this ROM are for preview what will we get on next SE official release, and second all, a ROM for ones that want AOSP style, but still can switch to SE style, so we don't have to stick just in 1 style (SE or CM), but lets focus on the bugs now


[Update news 17-Feb]
Bring back all T9 keyboard languages & TTS
Merging previous fix & update.
No important fix was made

With new kernel, the graphic glitch will only stuck in 1 process, when you leave the app, the glitch will gone also.
Still with the setting using built-in memory management in Settings >> Developers options >> tick 1. Force GPU rendering, 2. Background process limit, choose anything beside Standard limit), the result is this ROM is getting more usable

Important note: Due to regaining more free ram spaces, some localization files were removed, such as Japanese keyboard, dictionary , etc. (waste around 20 MB) so please edit script (cleaner.sh) inside update.zip before flashing,
choose files according to your local language, default is English US

Latest update are ROM v2.2 (AOSP Style) & 1.2 (SE Style)
Kernel v2.2



[Info]
1. v1.0 is initial ROM, SE style with some bloat ware.
2. It's a leaked rom, so bugs are expected (please report bugs, hopefuly with fixing solutions )
3. It's for testing purpose only, not for daily use (please use ICS 4.0.1 Alpha ROM for daily use)
4. I hope other devs are participating in building this ROM to become a daily use ROM
5. No ETA, I'll do the best I can do.


[Not Working / Known Issues]
Since this is a leaked ROM there are some issues :
1. VIDEO PLAYBACK buggy (no proper /lib/hw/overlay.default.so ), temp solution: turn off Bravia Engine
2. Graphics glitches (Lack of memory allocator, temporary solution go to >> Settings >> Developers options >> tick 1. Force GPU rendering, 2. Background process limit, choose anything beside Standard limit
3. Some apps from Market might be FCs (due to incompatibility with 4.0.3 / SDK 15) & maybe some random reboots


[Requirements ]
1. Baseband 64 (4.0.2.A.0.62), 56 is OK too. (Need further confirmation)
2. Unlocked bootloader
3. Supplied files (4.0.3 kernel/boot.img is a must)


[Installation instructions]
1. Flash baseband 64 with Flashtool (skip to step 2 if yours already on baseband 64) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=12
2. Download v1.0 ROM as a base, save it on SD-Card
3. Download ROM updater LATEST version (kernel included inside), extract update.zip & save it on SD-Card
4. Flash kernel with fastboot
Code:
fastboot flash boot xxx-boot.img
reboot from fastboot
Code:
fastboot reboot
5. Start booting, press down ANY button once when BLUE LED triggered to get into CWM recovery
6. Backup your phone (flashing ROM will wipe your data)
7. Flash ROM's v1.0.zip (takes about 1 minute)
8. Flash any update.zip
9. Reboot (first boot takes around 2-3 minutes)

[How to install ROM updater]

ROM v1.1 an so on as an update.zip version, 3 options installation method :
a. Install directly on top of previous version,
no need to wipe DATA & CACHE, data will still intact on un-touch apps,
DATA will be automatic deleted ONLY in removed apps. (see change.log post#2)
b. Do WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET only in CWM, without reinstalling Base ROM, therefor will not loose your previous cleaning-up job, then update.
c. Clean install, install Base ROM then install update.zip, all in the same CWM session (recommended)

yes, please help, specially with already known bugs,
because I'm not a programer & don't know how to decompile lib (.so) file or even worse how to create one

chiefy009, I run titanium and began to remove all unneeded apps for me. at one moment all glitches disappeared.. I have removed everything that we usually delete in our 4pda rom. There are some delays, but in general, assemblage is much better previous! I even will leave it for the evening
droidwall works! (all ok with iptables support). ok: bluetooth, wifi, 3g data transfer. even my like opera-mini works! yes some lags occurred.. not freezes but this sees as delay after menu pushed.

I urgently recommend to install this assembling.

At begin while I kill apps by titanium there were many strips on the screen.
