[ features ]
Easy to flash update.zip via recovery
Prerooted and busybox installed
working CWM recovery is included in kernel
[ To enter recovery keep pressing VOLUME UP button AFTER u see the "PINK" LED at bootup (Sony logo) ]
[ whats not working? ]
you tell me!
please report other things as and when you find them
[ requirements ]
previously on stock .55 ICS ROM or roms based on that [since some components of THIS rom contain files from those firmwares]
any existing kernel with recovery or just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot
[ how to install ]
download the ROM and save it on SDCARD
reboot device into recovery (make sure that the /system partition is unmounted, i have noticed that in some kernels the /system partition remains mounted)
flash the ROMs update.zip (this will take some time)
thats it now reboot device
at first boot device will reboot once after bootanimation thats expected
next boot will take a long time!!!
it might happen that in after some reboots u get a "flashing firmware screen" thats ok.. let it complete... DO NOT DISTURB WHILE THAT PROCESS IS GOING ON!!!
after a few reboots the ROM should stabilize!
If you are getting Status 7 Error while flashing in recovery just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot then enter ROM and flash it through recovery
i understand that everyone is really happy about this but please dont flood this thread with "thank you" posts... there is a "Thanks" button, use that... and if u are overjoyed there is always an option to donate or buy one of my awesome apps from Google Play Store!
Just yesterday, we talked about the highly anticipated launch of the first batch … more
