Well here i am after flashing this Rom, I'm very satisfied, I'm using speedy sola 5.5, ondemand+sio, 200-1150, it can't get smoother then this I really recommend everyone to try it out, I haven't tested battery since I just finished installing everything and I have to calibrate it. I'm talking from personal experience, i tried many roms and so far this is the best. Thanks a lot


ovan febriawan
I really live V4. It's fast and stable..
My opinion : v4 is best rom I use. I dont v5 because v4 just perfect to me and I dont know what I waant to change in v5
Maybe I should wait for your stock JB rom..
Thanks


Aultex
This Rom is ultra fast !! No lags in navigation. Sociallife is Awesome!


sanderschang
Tried several custom roms on my Sola,Ultimate rom is the best

Oriann
The ROM works beautifully ...smooth and performance are on the top of the hill
So far I didn't find any more bugs or laggy times...
If I will find any more(I dont want to ) I will report to this thread....anyway VERY NICE JOB ! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AS IT IS!

the Ultimate rom is really the fastest !


zenchikage
After a day of use, I am forced to conclude that this is the best ROM I have tried as of yet.
In performance, it is still not lagging, which is good considering that I always heavily MOD ROMs and make them slow.
Battery is decent, not the best I have used, but decent. Way better than stock ROM at least.
Limiting processes and Boost My Xperia Multitasking handles everything pretty well.
but I am convinced that there are no bugs. Everything, from Bluetooth and Mobile Network to NFC and WiFi-Direct seem to work well.
So, overall, it was a great job and I hope you continue making it even better. Thanks for the ROM.


asakurato
After 2 days no lags in rom Great rom.

Cool
-Flash ICS .54 Stock ROM Even If YOU ARE ON STOCK BASED ROMS
-WIPE DATA[FACTORY RESET]
-Download the ROM.

-Extract Kernel.elf file From zip/USE DIFFERENT KERNEL IF ON LOCKED BL

-Copy the ROM to your phone's SD card

-Fastboot the Kernel

-Boot in recovery by pressing volume UP button continuously at the Sony Logo.

-Wipe cache, dalvik cache and factory reset through CWM

-Flash the ROM

-FLASHING ROM TAKES TIME DONT PANIC OR SHUTDOWN PHONE it takes 5 to 7 min

-Wipe Date Again

-Restart your device

-If it asks to restore stock recovery hit yes

-if it asks to fix su hit yes

-it will ask again to fix su hit yes
-FIRST BOOT TAKES TIME DONT PANIC

-During setup it will ask to shutdown

-WHN IT ASKS TO SHUT DOWN DURING FIRST BOOT DO IT
-On restart finish the setup and keep the phone aside for 2 minutes so that all the modes and rom gets to settle and adjust itself

BEFORE USING ROM KEEP GOVERNOR HOTPLUG +SIO
KEEP MAX PROCESS ON 2
IN BOOST MY XPERIA KEEP ON MULTITASKING
IN BOOST MY XPERIA FREE RAM ONCE AND EVERYTIME U NEED RAM OR FEEL IT IS LESS
ONLY THEN START USING TO ELIMINATE LAG

-Untick the pc companion option in xperia/connectivity to be able to use MTP And MSC
HOW TO INSTALL CAMERA
WHN u boot u will notice no camera therefore follow these instructions to get camera back
this is the link for Cybershot 4.7.2http://www.mediafire.com/?nm3ihs905qfy5qh

this is the link for latest Cybershot 5.7.2 http://d-h.st/wJB

download both of them and place in memory card

wipe cache flash the 4.7.2 version and start the phone u wl notice the cybershot is there but to get latest

reboot into recovery wipe cache flash the newest version again.

after that go to manage apps > clear data & force stop

and it will work
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
Code:
FOR FASTEST ROM USE 
              HOT PLUG+SIO

AND KEEP MAX PROCESS AT 2 or 3
For battery keep max clock at 800mhz and use minmax,conservative +Sio
By Testing I Found Out That switching off a core saves more battery than running at lower frequency with both the cores running
Code:
PHONE LOVING TIPS
1)Always restart phone once a day preferable while u take a shower so that u dont miss any action
2)Whenever you feel like ur phone is getting slow even at 1.3ghz with best governors use boost my xperia and
according to ur preferences like mulittasking,gaming or just free ram
3)Do not use ram tweakers or boosters as they eat more ram then they conserve
4)if you feel like battery drain is too much you can always use different frequencies and governors
5)then to if you are not satisfied use different kernel
Code:
YOU MIGHT NOTICE NO SONGS IN WALKMAN AT FIRST BOOT DONT PANIC  
JUST BOOT INTO RECOVERY WIPE DALVIC CACHE AND CACHE AND RESTART
LET THE PHONE CHECK FOR ERRORS IN INTERNAL AND EXT MEMORY 
AND TADA:good: U SHOULD BE GOOD
Code:
For USB Connection problem
UNTICK THE PC COMPANION And change connection type to MTP - MSC and back to MTP

It took me hours of hardwork and testing to come up with this ROM but it wont take a second for you to hit the THANKS button and appreciate my work

Well i flashed again and have the same problem. It seems that the "fix_permissions.sh" included in the rom zip file isn't recognized.
The stock kernel i use is XPERIA SOLA STOCK ICS FTF Build 6.1.1.B.1.54 - India(ASIA).
Is it possible that i need another version?
I will wait for others to install to see if they have the same problem.
