Phone [ROM][V LT25i][JB 9.1.A.1.140] Xperia V Supersport [29th April]

Xperia V Supersport Jelly Bean

A stock based ROM stripped of unwanted applications, and modified under the hood for a great smooth user experience with sensible device tweaks. Created using dsixda ROM Kitchen and tweaks from Xperia related forums and threads. I have not 'developed' anything here.

Based on the latest Jelly Bean firmware for the Sony Xperia V [LT25i - 9.1.A.1.140 Central Europe].

Let me be the first to say thank you, and I will test this as soon as its downloaded.
Takes me 30mins tho since the speeds at work arent that great.
I'll wash the floors here at the store while I wait

Edit:
Works perfectly.
Would be awesome to get a custom reboot-menu implemented tho. with the options to reboot and reboot into CWM.
Current:
Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S - Gave it away!
Sony Xperia S - 4.4 AOSP powered
Sony Xperia V - sold it
Sony Xperia Z - sold this one aswell
HTC One 32GB - sold yet another one
Nexus 7 - 4.4 powered
LG G2 (D802) - CloudyPro II 4.4 KitKat + TWRP 2.7 XDA Themed



Click the picture and get 20GB of free space on Copy!
You get 5GB extra and I get 5GB extra. WIN-WIN!

Have tested it for a few hours now, and my phone has been on standby for 1-2 hours. Worked when I unlocked it.
Tested without charger ofcourse.
Can also report back tomorrow after one night of standby if you'd like ?

Please use the ROM for a few days and report back battery. I have had some good results

Im looking to integrate google seach from Jelly Bean and Aroma Installer next. I will consider sensible requests.

I will need help with some theme tweaks for Reboot menu.

Cheers
