User Experience with Xperia Ultimate HD™


"It's simply a brilliant ROM. Another masterpiece. Flashed 3.0 early in the morning. I came from another really good ROM but you topped it nevertheless. Don't know, how you do this. But that's not important as long as I can participate.",

"This ROM is just supernova and blazing fast, just 10.000 galaxys better than other ROMs, and I tried every ROM, keep it up bro with this amazing ROM "

"One word to describe this Rom = Legennnndary!!"

"Came back to ICS after switching between JB and GB for months. I must say that this rom is a beast in terms of performance. Ultimate HD 2.0.3 was good but 3.0.2 is simply amazing. I've been on this rom for 4 days now and there's still no decrease in performance. I dun know about others but i usually get 185+ free ram which is not bad for multitasking and gaming at all. And yeah HD games like RR3, NFS MW, Amazing Spidey, Sims Freeplay works amazingly well.
Can't expect more from a device with 2 years old Hardware.
Thanks for this Amazing Rom."

"Thats the only ICS Rom where gaming is awesome
Greater than GB Jader
your work is not good....your work is more than awesome

Looking forward to your next version "

"Almost a week on this Rom and unbelieveibly my phone hasn't slowed down or lagged or done anything stupid. The best Rom broo respect and thumbs up "

"Simply the best rom for neo v. I've used xperia ice bean, ice cream pureness, cm9... all good, but no match for this rom. It runs like a dream. I don't have any lag while playing HD-Games (nova 3, nfs mw, batman etc..)"

"I used CyanogenMod 10 for months, and I can confirm that this ICS ROM is much smoother.
Compare this to Jelly Sandwich with the fake Android 4.2 logo."

No idea, but the ROM just refused to start up.
Stucked at Sony logo.

Came from JJ Hybrid v3.3b and stock kernel.

You need to do all formats: Factory reset, wipe cache partions, format cache, format data, format system and wipe dalvik cache. Then go to flash zip and install it following Aroma instructions n,n/ is a really great rom for now i'm happy with it the only bug is that DefaultThemes.apk doesn't working correctly btw i don't need dat haha
