Well, as some people wanted I made something, nothing special, nothing that wasn't done before, but I did it in my way.

So, what you get:
  • rom based on stable cm 7.2.0.1 or stable cm 7.2.0.1 with int2sd support (so you'll get internal memory as big as you sd-ext partition - thanks to Proz0r)
  • Sony Xperia S Launcher, widget picker and Sony Weather Widgets by ra3al
  • Xperia Arc theme by kevin2516
  • some optimizations (720p video playback + some 3g and net mods + fixed blackscreen issue after a call)
  • gapps included
  • Sony Xperia Arc bootanimation
  • Play Store 3.8.16 (thanks to Jmcclue )
  • added Android Assistant app
  • added Adfree app
  • removed Rom Manager (cause it's only a pain in the ass)
  • removed ADW launcher (too slow...)
  • removed CM7 walpapers (needed space for gapps )
  • removed Setup Wizard and some other bloatware.


Requirements:
  • for stock version - fits to cm7r2 hboot (hboots with larger system partition can also be used)
  • for int2sd version - cm7r2 hboot ONLY
  • sd-ext partiition - for int2sd to work and that will be the size of your internal memory (for stock version needed only if you want to use some a2sd script)
  • a full wipe before install

To make it fully work and look like Xperia:
  • after first boot, go to theme chooser and pick Xperia theme
  • go to Android Assistant and kill Home MultiResolution app (home launcher to get it restarted and all icons loaded)

Wallpapers are not included!!!

I only tried it for some short time to see if it works, but for tougher usage I need your help.

I've tried installing it but I could never get it to work.

It gets stuck at the initial boot logo (not boot animation) and nothing happens.

I tried it twice full-wipe and install but it ended-up the same.

Currently it's only cm7r2 hboot compatible (because of in2sd-s) but I'll make something stock soon.

I cannot get to look like the same you have posted..After selecting the Xperia theme and restarting the launcher using Android assistant, my icons has changed, but still the background stays with Nexus. Also the check boxes also doesn't look so good as its with dull background.

Any idea ??
