Default [ROM]XperimenT 3.5[T/TL][9.1.A.1.145][Locked & Unlocked][23/09/13]

Introducing:
TiMiN8R's


This is a ROM I built with dsixda's Android Kitchen for myself. Having tried several ROM's and MOD's I decided to just cook my own ROM with the mods and tweaks I like best. I figured others might like it too so here it is. It's geared towards my brothers and sisters with locked bootloaders: CWM for locked bootloaders and rebootfix are already built in, so no need to flash them afterwards (and can't forget, which has happened to me on more than one occasion )
Based on LT30p Orange PL BOND 9.1.A.1.145 posted by macioo85.

I know, I removed the StorageChecker.apk that kept nagging me about the SD card being >75% full and it broke the Transfer option.
I just use ES File Explorer for that sort of stuff but to each his own: SemcStorageChecker.apk - 202.87 KB

It's based on the 7.0.A.3.223 for XPERIA T (FTF file Central Europe) posted by Jozinek which I previously rooted & deodexed.

Features

Basic flashing instructions

1. Flash stock .303 FTF from the All-in-One thread with flashtool(TL users: exclude baseband!)(*)
2. Root with Bin4ry's method(*)
3. install CWM for locked bootloaders.(*)
4. Make a backup with nandroid and/or titanium backup.
5. Go to recovery and Flash ROM.
6. Locked bootloader: On reboot it will ask: "ROM may flash stock recovery on boot. fix?", choose "No".
7. Flash .223 stock kernel with flashtool. TX users should use a TX kernel!
8. Enjoy

(*) skip these steps if you're already on a custom .195 with CWM recovery or unlocked bootlader.

All the usual blah blah about bricking your device applies. It works fine on my phone so it should work on yours.

It hasn't been tested but I guess it should. Don't know if the CWM for locked bootloaders or reboot-fix might screw with anything. Just backup and try it. Please let me know. Maybe I'll fix an unlocked bootloader version later tonight.

I will test too if I get time, but if on an unlocked boatloader just skip the steps and (after backup) full wipe, make sure you are on a 195 kernel and install Rom with cwm, should be fine!!

Well it actually works, i just denied the recovery installation that comes with the rom from my current CMW and it boots without a problem.

Still testing, but so far so good

PS: I'm looking for a battery mod for this ROM's status bar, I'd really like to have a circular battery, please help me out.
THe mod I've tested works but makes the small apps on multitasking disappear.
