Venezuela Xperia U Mod [ VeXU ]


This is a ROM i've recooked based on Sony's Stock 6.1.1.B.1.100 ROM (Lee480), debranded, trying to keep all really usefull tweaks, leaving apart a lot of placebo tweaks. Surely, there is still some placebo tweaks left that i've not cleaned, but it requires a lot of time of testing. Maybe you can help to make it better.

I've mixed this ROM for my Locked Bootloader Xperia U st25a
Unlocked Bootloader people, I had a report from tarmvred, he has able to install Transcendence Kernel with this rom. Just do not install AnDyX's governors with custom kernels.

  • If you already have downloaded v1.1 and you want to fix it, just open VeXU_v1.1.zip file and replace this file: META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script with this one
  • if you already have installed v1.1 and you have FCs with sony photo album and don't want to download v1.1fixed just install sony's photo editor.

  • Based on 6.1.1.B.1.100 Stock ROM
  • You can choose to debloat ROM on installation.
  • Custom Fonts removed
  • FasterGPS app included.
  • Changed Circle Bar on Slide Tab 'n' Grid Toggles v3, sometimes it has a strange behavior.
  • More customizable, you can even choose to remove stock dialer but this won't let you dial 911 number (Not a emergency number in Venezuela for Mobile Operators).
v1.0 (20130617)
  • VeXU v1 Aroma fixed (20130618): Fixed installation issue with keyboards (option 3 & 4) & No LED (option 3 & 4) options on Aroma Installer.
  • Initial Release v1 (20130617), maybe the last one

Recommendations
  • Battery Saving: Do not install Facebook official app. Facebook official app is a hungry battery eater, it will keep Android OS process higher on your phone. If you need it, you must disable sync facebook contacts, chat, gps ubication & notifications. Additionally you must hibernate it with greenify app. If you want low consume notificacions from facebook change your email notification address in your facebook account, and set this email account in your phone. I had a gmail account only for facebook notifications.
  • Dialer: yes i know, sony's dialer is a piece of crap. I really use exDialer App instead.
  • A-GPS: Maybe FasterFix or FasterGPS may help you. My first time GPS use after a complete fresh ROM installation with google's location service (internet online) tooks 1 minute to give me coordinate data, without this apps.

Dude you should make a version for Unlocked bootloader too. Your rom seems really nice . I was looking for a new stock-based rom but almost all xda-developers are working on custom-based roms

The selective tweaks makes the diference, not all tweaks you find on internet works in every device and on every Android OS version in the same way. I have found a tweak in some roms just doing the oposite, yes, lagging the phone, wasting battery, i'm talking about the sdcard speed up tweak which works for a few minutes but after a while your android os goes completely laggy.
Remember AnDyX's Governors are capped to 200mhz when the screen goes off, so yes this gives you a lot battery saving while you are not using it, but sometimes this generates delay on wake ups, and a big delay when some one calls you while there was a heavy process in background. Additionaly, sometimes makes audio clips when you turn off the screen or wakes up your phone. My favorite gov is lulzactiveq with CFQ but i don't realy use it, i've just test the govs for several days. It can fit on some people use.

i don't know what it takes to make it unlocked bootloader compatible. I think just removing recovery and not installing govs should work with any kernel but i'm unable to test it
