This is CM10 for LB. If you want to check how it works, go here out. Though it's very unlikely to happen, I am not reponsible for bricked devices/whining children whatsoever.
You can get the mod, containing the latest commits and patches from here (*.zip) or here (*.tar.gz). I will also upload it here on XDA, but it may not always be up-to-date. Also feel free to contribute to my source, any help is appreciated.

Oh and since I don't have time to update this thread very often, I will not post a changelog. Though you can track my progress here.

VERY IMPORTANT: Do NOT flash this mod using CWM. Please follow the installation instructions given in the second post instead. If you want to flash it, go here.

Thanks!

Installation instructions
Instructions:

Advanced users can use this instead.
  1. Step: Download (a) CM10(-based) ROM (which means other ROMs such as AOKP or PAC could work too)
  2. Step:
  3. Step:
    • Delete META-INF folder
    • Copy META-INF folder from my zip to the ROM.zip
  4. Step:
    • Copy lb-and-wifi folder from my zip to the ROM.zip
  5. Flash the modified ROM.zip like any other ROM

Happy flashing!

Hi, thanks for you interest. This ROM does not boot up (boot loop) as of now. Hence I would recommend not to flash this with a locked bootloader though since it's pointless (it is not going to boot and you cannot grab a proper log). That and installation instructions have already been stated one post above yours by the way.

Thanks

Bro, i have a suggestion.. Although this is also a very good idea of bringing CM10 for LB.. Why don't u try a AOSP 4.3/4.4? Fixing all present bugs in letama's 4.3 may be.. Or bringing a SONY UI for 4.3/4.4..??

Hello my friend,
sorry for the late reply, I couldn't find the time to respond.
It might be possible, yes. But it's a lot of work. I chose CM10 because I find it's more likely to work with Stock 4.1.2 kernel than KitKat for example. I don't even know it will work. Many devs say that it's impossible to boot CyanogenMod/AOSP-based ROMs using Stock kernel, and this might be true. I will not give up so fast though, let's see how far we can come. Remember this project can't progress if nobody tries to get me a log (I haven't received a single log yet).

Thanks,
djolivier
