Hey all,

I have a XPERIA sola and I'm running it nearly everytime on CM. But which one do you recommend?

Here's my opinion:
- CM9 (good balance between performance and battery, but too old Android)
- CM10 (Newer Android but ****ty battery life)
- CM11 (what about this? I just tried Carbon yet and battery + performance is not that good. UI is smooth but RAM is bad)

So can you share your experince with CM ROM's too?

I was going to try that Carbon KK ROM for Xperia Sola, but I got an installation aborted error, saying something about "assert failed", as if I my device wasn't MT27i
So sadly, can't say much about it lol

Cm11
I tried CM11 by Munjeni and i found it quite good, the battery life is like a gingerbread stock, the performance are good except some bugs very annoying ad example sometimes the back button didn't work and i think that in build9 the omx isn't really fixed at all...
I found the build8 more smooth than build9 but it hasn't the OMX, you have to install mxplayer and for youtube videos use dolphin with flashplayer

I don't want to offend the great developers of these roms, i like too much their work for our device

(sorry for my bad english )

did u flash the corresponding kernel for that rom prior to trying to install it?
if this does not solve the error, you can remove the assertions from the zip-file
go to meta-inf/com/google/android/updater-script and remove the lines containing the assertions and make sure to save the modified file back into the zip
however, this can be extremely dangerous; do it at your own risk

RAM management on CM11 is awesome!
I use performance control app then set minfree task killer to very light.
