Anyway... Building the final parts of the Carbon Nightly ROM, also simultaneously working on MIUI 6 for this device.
Stock ROM build is happening... Just have to generate the updater-script and the update binary.
Status of Each Build :
Carbon ROM : Needs a new Update Binary, creating it, coding it.
TWRP Recovery : Done !
MIUI 6 : Downloading the latest release version. Porting and Update Binary and Updater Script pending.
Stock Flashable Zip : Creating all Update files from scratch, system folder is ready, deodexing pending, App updates pending.
Xperia v3 : Boot Animation Build Progressing, Updating all stock Google apps, Adding Xposed Framework, etc.
Android L ROM : Waiting for a Stable Android L ROM to be released here, still no progress.

Here are the basic mount points of this device which I accidentally discovered while messing about in the Stock ROM :

system : emmc@android : dev/block/mmcblk0p8 -- This is for the System folder, has ext4 partition type
data : emmc@usrdata : dev/block/mmcblk0p10 -- This is for the Data folder, has ext4 partition type
cache : emmc@cache : dev/block/mmcblk0p9 -- This is for the Cache folder, has ext4 partition type

Hope it helps !

Which do you think is better : External SD Card as Main Storage or Internal SD Card as Main Storage ?
Anybody can reply by posting here.
This question is for the Carbon ROM and the Stock Flashable Zip ROM.
I felt I should ask you this question as I felt that Internal SD Card has way too less storage for me, but my decision cannot be everybody's decision, can it ?. ( I have 180+ Apps on this device, all linked to SD Card ( 32 gb, ~1.5 gb free space remaining ) ).

Internal SD card is always a better options.Anyways keep it up with all the developments.

Is there any way to change the on-screen soft keys to look them like that of Nexus 5 lollipop soft keys.They look really cool and other thing is the transparency of the on screen buttons.It would be great if you made this above mod in the new ROM

Yeah, I'm working on that. You know that camera you have in other Xperia devices with all that Timescape feature and everything ? I'm adding that to the updated version of this ROM. But, the ROM will still be based on Android Jellybean 4.2.2. I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do about that because, if I change the base OS, I'll have to rebuild all the apps from scratch to fit alongside the new permissions and all that stuff, which will take off most of my time.
I'll consider your decision about the Main Storage, but there's one drawback about using it that way. You won't be able to remove your SD Card or unmount it while the OS is on. If that's okay with you, please reply. Anyway, if you want to change it afterwards, you can do so by the vold.fstab edit which cybercrawler had mentioned here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=31
Thanks for your opinion, by the way !

You can use the Softkeyz app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...is605.softkeyz ) to change the design of the icons. However, you can't apply a glow effect or transparency or any such thing on the stock ROM.
But, there is a way to get that transparency, icons and all that, in the Xperia ROM. You will have to install the Xposed framework, install GravityBox and then mess around with the tweaks in that to get that effect you're looking for.
The Android L ROM will have all that navigation bar tweaks and things you're looking for, so I'll try to extract that and add it to most of the ROMs.
Note : If you're unwilling to pay for the app, just do a quick Google search and you'll find the apk file, which can be downloaded and installed manually on your device. Either that or you could download the app through Blackmart Store for free.
