REMINDERS: Flashing custom made ROMs comes with risk, if you are not sure what you are doing STOP. Do not continue. If you are knowledgeable and want to try it out feel free. You may feedback problems or comments but I do not guarantee to be able to solve all problems encountered, so do not blame me if any problems occurred. I would also like to remind all users to keep in mind that to enjoy custom ROM experience, it is best to FLASH from a clean stock ROM first, ROOT and enbale INT.D and the install RECOVERY (CWM). Then finally flashing the custom ROM. Thank you.

WHAT IS Google™ BeAnZ?
Google™ BeAnZ (from the creator of JBeAnZ) is a customized stock ROM based on firmware 6.2.A.1.100 Jellybean for Xperia go (ST27i). The idea stem out after reading Google Edition phone of Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

WHY Google™ BeAnZ?
We all know Google™ will not release a Google™ Edition of Xperia go, so the goal of this ROM is to make a Google™ Edition ROM for Xperia go without having to install AOSP ROM or custom ROMs which needs to unlock the bootloader (still it will work with unlocked bootloader and works well with Phantom kernel). I tried to make this ROM look and feel like stock Android as much as possible. I use resources from Jellybean 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 to complete this ROM. I also removed bloatwares or software that are unwanted that makes the ROM slower and more memory hungry. I also enabled init.d script to allow to run scripts that help optimize the ROM. I edited build.prop for more optimization.
