Default [ROM][4.2.2][Arc/S] JellyVanilla EX 6.1 | Ultimate Honami Xperience - 07/03/2014

Note: I don't have an anzu anymore, so the screenshots were taken from my coconut, and sorry it's outdated but i'll update them later :)

FEATURES :

Based on LegacyXperia CM10.1 builds by mikeioannina, and OFFICIAL Sony JB 4.3 for Xperia Z1
Now you can feel the official Sony JB 4.3 stuffs in our 4.2.2 JB core !! :D :cool:
HOMESCREEN
By using the Honami Home launcher and real honami widgets with working accent color,
get the real feel of using Xperia Z1 device..

 















UI
I've hardly themed CM10.1's very stock UI into the real Xperia JB UI especially Xperia Z1 on this JellyVanilla EX,
Feel the original taste of Xperia Z1 UI right on your device now !!

 

MULTIMEDIA
Enjoy every enjoyment of your live by using Sony's great media apps right on this ROM..

You can enjoy music playing by using Honami WALKMAN app that have been packed with it's original environment such as ClearAudio+, Clear stereo, Dynamic normalizer, Sound Enhancement equalizer, etc..

 


Enjoy your photos anywhere anytime with the the latest Sony's Album app, and it's SensMe Slideshow feature..

 


And get detailed info for your videos with Honami Movies app..
JACS
Honami theme accent color is a great eye-candy, but it's so complicated to port it to other rom especially non-Sony rom
So i try to implement my own accent color system, i'm proudly presents : JACS (JellyVanilla Accent Color System)
A pseudo Honami accent color system made for JellyVanilla builds !!
It's still in beta/development stage, but i hope you like it :)

 



TWEAK
Don't ask about it, just FEEL the power of it !! :p
MISC

 




ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP !!
Before flashing any one of the files in this thread..
I don't responsible of any negative things like boot-looping, bricked device, burned SD card, you late to go to school,
or the next world war caused by the ROM here..

You have been warned !!

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ !!

I signed JellyVanilla EX 5.0 (and above) with new different signing keys
please wipe data before installing the rom to prevent stuck/bootloop, except you came from JellyVanilla EX 5.x !!
INSTALLATION
0. Make a backup
1. Flash CM10.1 LX 20131108 kernel for your device
2. Enter recovery
3. Wipe data (no need to do if you came from JV-EX 5.x)
4. Flash JellyVanilla EX 6.0 (Dev-host)
5. Boot your phone
6. If you get black screen after setting up phone, just press Home button
7. Let the ROM idle for a minute, and... Done !!

UPDATING TO 6.1
0. Make sure JV-EX 6.0 already installed
1. Flash UPDATE-JellyVanilla EX 6.1

WARNING:
If you're going to use JV-EX with language other than English (US), you must flash this pack otherwise your keyboard will FCs

Where can I get correct kernel for my device ??
1. Select your device :2. Extract boot.img from the zip
3. Flash it !!

Or you can use wobzip.org to download the kernel only..

MORE :
Q & A :
  • Where is Developer Options and Performance settings ??
    - Go to Settings -> About phone then press Build number 7 times..
  • I can't read anything in Messaging app ?!
    - Don't be so afraid. Press menu button, select Settings, and you can personalize looks and feel of your Messaging app there :)
  • MSC mode ??
    - Settings -> Xperia™ Connectivity -> USB computer connection -> Mass Storage
  • How to disable small apps ??
    - Freeze/disable 'Small App Launcher' then restart phone (or just restart SystemUI)
  • Your ROM is faster than NOS !! But some other 4.2.2 ROMs are faster ??
    - Nah, don't ever try to compare this one's performance with it's 4.2.2 brothers.
    Why ?? I think u already know, this rom is half CM10.1 and half SONY 4.3 fw.
    All SONY 4.3 fw are made for it's HIGH END devices that basically not our device, so they're very hungry in resources.
    I HAVE and I WILL do my best to handle the performance degradation of using SONY's fw.
    So don't complain to me IF you found this rom has worse performance than other 4.2.2 roms, complain to SONY instead.. :p
CURRENT BUGS (Apart from LX 1108 bugs)

Anyway thanks
  • -edit music info works but it gets a security error and can t download music info..but you can edit music album photo manually on a sd card folder if you want..that is working.
  • -cant seem to restore my apps with titanium backup.
  • -message cant see cause its all white,but no problem,just go to message settings and choose different colors,bubble style etc..
  • -display its small,but no problem also,just go to your build.prop and change LCD density to 240.save and reboot.
  • -for better performance use cm10.1 darkraven kernel (its alternative kernel mentioned by OP)
  • -navigation bar buttons are big, and they are ON on landscape mode,maybe a fixed version with 24DPI and 0 landscape better.(i have fixed that for me)

good theming accent changes,looks very nice, incall is transparent (thanks always better than full black), free ram is between 140-160 (use greenify if not you will get between 80-100 if you install many apps). its a great sony experience if you like that,with all sony apps working great,only security errors may appear,cause we dont have support for some features. some screenshots and video review later after more tests.
