KitKat is boring after a while, after all I miss the Sony UI ..

Time to refresh memories with this one, looks so beautiful on the screen shots.

Testing this with Suave v5, (best battery life on ICS kernels, hands down).

Will try to report back in the morning

Thanks for this Rom.

Used it for two days. This is my review about the Rom.

The performance of this rom was good. Camera was good.

Small apps worked flawlessly.

The most important one is that the dialer was very quick when compared to other rom.

Got fc while accessing settings (apps management) and ram cleaning.

WiFi, Bluetooth and gallery were working well.

Sony Album could be replaced by Sony Gallery2 to save space.

Overall a good Rom with all the required functions.

Sent from my Neo V using Xda developers app.
Press THANKS if this helped you.

Default bug

Change themeÁ

When you change theme, no restarts and reports an error, then the manual restart will not finish booting

That is strange bug, did you do a clean install?

Or it could be you have deleted SemcGenericUxpRes.apk from framework

Try changing the theme accent from Theme Changer and you will get back the SemcGenericUxpRes.apk

The ROM, As the name suggests has been tried to be kept close to Xperia Z UI so Album was to be added instead, and is fast too
You may use QuickPic app supplied with this ROM for ICS Gallery like grid view

The same thing as above, App has accidentally deleted SemcGenericUxpRes.apk without replacing it, Try the app again, it happens sometimes but the app works 90% times
