PvyParts and iridaki
Proudly Present you
T.E.A.M. Stock Rom
A Rom for the Community By the Community!

Be Sure to read this post FULLY before you post a question




Make sure you are running the latest SE stock kernel and baseband .71.
Boot into xRecovery (or CWM if your running a unlocked bootmenu kernel)
and make a NANDROID BACKUP (this is really IMPORTANT, as we can't recover your data!)


If not in xRecovery boot into it
Do a Factory Reset (Full Wipe)!
Flash the "" via xRecovery.
Flash the "" via xRecovery.
Reboot and let the phone do it's thing as it will be rebuilding caches and settling.
First boot can take UP TO 5 minutes so be patient!
After first boot, do your normal thing with setting up your accounts.
Choose a Home Launcher!


***Optional if you choose ADW***
Once you are on you Home Screen, Press the Menu Button
Select More>ADWSettings>Themes Preferences>Select your Theme>Pick "Sony Launchifier"
Hit "Apply Theme!"

Update AppMan via the inbuilt update (open AppMan> Press Menu> pick About> Pick Update)

If you want to use your own custom Clock font:
1. You should place your custom font in folder /system/TEAM/font and it should be a .ttf file named clock_font.ttf.
2. Go to Settings > Tweaks and check the option Custom Font for whatever element you wish (clock, battery, signal, date).
You can now also tweak the text size to your liking!!

Q & A

Q: Where are all the addons?
A: In AppMan check your app drawer for the Superman-droid icon. That's AppMan!

Q: Can I install xLOUD?
A: Yes! But it is proven to damage the speaker, so we have also included DSP manager so you can increase the volume. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL when stressing your hardware's limits! We are not to be held responsible for any damages to the fragile speaker on your phone.

Q: Can I use this or that kernel for unlock or locked bootloader?
ALL kernels built for stock ROMs WILL WORK on this rom. We have tested all of them and we recommend ThKernel 029e, which you can find as an addon in AppMan.

WARNING: If you are using a Bypass Kernel it will be removed when the ROM is installed and you will just need to reflash it after flashing the ROM.
If you are using a Replacement Kernel(Unlocked Bootloader) then there will be no effect.

Q: Can I use this or that theme?
A: Short answer, no. Unless of course it is built of our framework. We have made MASSIVE mods to the framework so most themes will disable most, if not all, options in the Tweaks app.

Q: I am getting a FC on this or that, can you help me!
A: NO. We can't help you. Because what you just said means nothing to us.
We want to help you SO much, but in order to do that you need to report the bug properly.
We took care of that too, see here:

Q:OMG YOU STOLE MY WORK! YOU A!@#$!% etc etc etc
A: We kindly ask you that if you have an issue with any of the inclusions in the ROM to either PM me or iridaki so we can sort it out politely There is no need to flame in the thread. Also if we have forgotten credits, please let us know and we will add them immediately.

Q: This rom is stupid, I hope you fail, "that" ROM is better!
A: That's cool, use "that" ROM. There is absolutely no need to report your disgust unless of course you have constructive criticsm. Personal Preference isn't a bug or an issue
We encourage EVERYONE to use the ROM they feel is best for them

We are very happy to announce our collaboration with ThJap who was kind enough to provide us with his latest kernel, 029e, 
previously exclusive to his ROM. 
Now this is the official T.E.A.M kernel, fully compatible with the ROM and highly recommended.
   Detailed kernel changelog is provided here.
A brief overview of the kernel features is as follows:

- Based on latest FreeXperia sources
- OverClock (up to 1228 MHz) & DownClock (128 MHz), UnderVolt   (adjustable vdd levels), optimized CPU settings (latency, speed and   more)
- General Volume FIX, including in-call volume (Max & Min Gain)
- FPS uncap integrated
- ext3, ext4 support
- Turned on Swap, CPU Thumbee, tree RCU
- Ondemand CPU governor FIX (it can use all frequencies, much like interactive)
- Auto loading init.d scripts
- Updated yaffs2 (backport from Arc kernel)
 - backlight.c and lcd.c update
- Smartass v2 CPU governor (default)
- BFQ scheduler tweaked
- Touch driver FIX (upped touch response to the limit)
- Backport some sources from .32
- and many more!
Now to the ROM itself:

- Added more build.prop tweaks
- Cleaned for the users that will flash ThJap kernel

NOTE: Install this update ONLY if you run stock SE kernel 
(doesn't matter if you run any other kernel for locked bootloaders,
the state of your bootloader (locked/unlocked) also doesn't matter) 
 or BootManager Stock Kernel.

This update is highly recommended because it will enhance user experience vastly.
 However, it is still optional.
Next updates will be kernel-independent so you can skip this.
But we can guarantee that you will regret it! 

First boot might take a bit longer than usual, because the cache and dalvik cache will be wiped during flashing.
Also, for the first few minutes after boot, phone might be a little laggy, as caches are being rebuilt.
It should catch up very quickly though!

Undervolt is not included, for the sake of compatibility with all devices.
Each device has unique tolerance in overclock/undervolt, so you have to experiment yourself.
For overclock, use SetCPU or No-frills CPU or CPU Master, etc.
For undervolt, open /system/etc/init.d/13vdd_levels and edit the values as you wish.

DOWNLOAD or get it from AppMan
Flash with xRecovery.


DOWNLOAD or get it from AppMan
Select with Boot Manager, via the Custom Kernel Selection menu.

As far as the main ROM is concerned, on our To-Do list are some theme  fixes (text color glitches), 2.3.4 Home  Launcher modification to  support selectable number of homescreens, the enhancement of our beloved  AppMan with new features and many more cool things. 
So, as always, stay tuned and thanks for all your unmatchable support!

Team work for the T.E.A.M.

First of all, THANKS to everybody for their support in this attempt!

25/8/2011: I am updating this post with the results I got from testing all the custom kernels available, up to today.
It was an amazing ride and our developers have really produced great enhancements for our phones!
Also, let me note one more time, T.E.A.M ROM is stock ROM, so this review applies to any stock and stock based ROM (as long as there are no tweaks conflicting with the boot.img).

First of all, the apps I used to measure the kernels' features performance
are: CPUSpy and NoFrills CPU Control (was a fan of SetcPU, but Nofrills is simpler and somehow I got over my Profiles obsession ).

1. [KERNEL] zKernel | 2.6.29 | for 2.3.3 stock ROM | 19/08/2011

This is an "old-time classic"! U MAD???



- latest SE sources
- FPS cap removed
- overclocked
- added extra frequencies
- in-call volume increased
- TUN/TAP support (VPN)
- CIFS support
- debugging disabled for improved performance
- enabled ThumbEE CPU extension

Performance and speed with the >998 frequencies are great,
but in my case the phone got too hot above 998 MHz.
In-call volume is increased and there's no distortion, which is very very nice!
There's no undervolt, so nothing to report there.
Overall, it's very stable, faced no problems while using it,
but wanted to try undervolt, so moved on to other kernels.
Of course, I know my device actually can handle undervolt, so if you
had bad experiences with undervolting before, this is definitely the kernel for you.

2. 2.3 Th_kernel_023.2

The latest kernel from 24/8 seems to pack some neat features,
but unfortunately got stuck at boot logo when I installed it,
so no review here. I am sure ThJap will sort it out soon enough!

3. [KERNEL][X10] DooMKernel - "Power to The People" [Rel:v03d][Dt:26/08][FW3.0.1.G.0.75]

This is my personal favorite. The latest version, 03d, runs very very stable
on my phone.
The VDD controls are a great way to discover and use the best undervolting settings for your device!
I made a startup script and set the voltages to:

128000 Hz - 875 V
192000 Hz - 900 V
245760 Hz - 925 V
384000 Hz - 950 V
460800 Hz - 975 V
576000 Hz - 1000 V
652800 Hz - 1050 V
768000 Hz - 1100 V
844800 Hz - 1150 V
921600 Hz - 1200 V
998400 Hz - 1250 V

I use minmax governor and you can see what I personally feel about other governors here.
With the latest update, ondemand and interactive seem to be fixed and lag has been eliminated,
but I am still testing.

All in all, what's important for you to know is that all the custom kernels work in this ROM!
You just need to flash the zip and then wipe cache and dalvik cache in xRecovery before rebooting.
As simple as that!

Don't be afraid to try, don't forget that you are as good as your last backup
and come here to report your experience with custom kernels!

__________________________________________________ ________

In the T.E.A.M spirit, I will be updating this post with additions for the ROM from members!

1. Transparent Widgets by alzbac!
Check them out, they match the transparency of the rest of the ROM.
Download link and support provided by alzbac:

. . .

More to come!


User Requests / To-Do

- Smaller in size ZIPs for download (as suggested by riginal)
*Most probably the upcoming releases will be updates and not Full ROMs anyway,
but keeping the download sizes at minimum will be a priority

- Colored Icons in the Statusbar for When-Connected-To-Google (as suggested by slashfoo) DONE

- Battery Percentage Mod with working Reboot options (as suggested by Slothagus)

- AppWidgetPicker implementation (as suggested by slashfoo)

- Host the files for this rom on github
pvyParts: Sorry guys i will get on it. :P as i have to decompile everything and organise it a bit beter :P

- Add a 6th Icon on notification toggles for data on/off
pvyParts: working on the data enable/disable taking more time than i like

- Be able to configure notification toggles
pvyParts: not sure if thsi is "easy to implement" but will look into it soon.

- Change the "POWER" key to "ENDCALL"

- Add "Take screenshot" to power menu (instead of xrecovery which would be a LOT less used).
pvyParts: hehe more framework mods, gotta love it. i will see if i can get it to work.
