بلدي ROM باللغة العربية (My Rom In Arabic)

كما طلب العديد من المرات هذا لقد تمكنت من القيام بذلك.

This is V13 Only and has been confirmed working apart from the Keyboard, but use Go Keyboard as it holds Arabic.

New Launcher based rom. Sony Xperia Arc Launcher

This rom has been messed with and devised by Kanded, credits to him for this.
I took the V11 rom stripped the Rosie and added in the Sony Xperia Arc launcher.
Everything runs sweet as a nut. Really nice looking to.

V6 SuperCharger Script


OK here's something i found earlier....Credits go to zeppelinrox for this.
Please check out this thread and say thanks to the man!

Simply put, get script manager ads from Google play.
Add this script onto your SD card.
Browse as root in app, locate the script press the skull and cross bones.. IE superuser mode and run the script...
Damn its bloody quick!
I've added the script to bottom of this post in attachments section for easier access, all u have to do is click the link. right click on page once its opened and save as. don't change the name or anything, then copy the txt file to your SD card.
once you run this, follow the guide it gives...its brilliant and will override all v6 scripts installed on any rom!
But i will not install this as stock, reason being, u can redo this script at anytime and change it further at your own desecration. so please don't ask for me to do it!
Here something to speed things up instead of Setcpu....

it was made for me awhile ago........its called perflock.
Idea is it sets the phones CPU speed to set you don't have to.
Its proven to work on my phone...been using it for ages now.... is made for the UK my max is 800, i know some euro based models have 1000 as please...before you try flashing this...back it up....I hold no responsibility for anything going wrong, you have been warned!
A simple way to see if this is working grab a CPU monitor widget....just to leave on your home screen to watch it.
You will see your phone respond faster...battery life will be better as well.

Flash this zip in recovery.....DO NOT WIPE ANYTHING! just flash and reboot


Original Wallpapers for all roms is here. Copy and paste into the customize folder as they are and reboot.

> Original Rom Wallpapers

Known Issues....

NON all sorted so far!


Standard dribble.....don't come crying if u fudge it take this risk yourself!
If you wish to use my rom as part of your own please ask first!

I've have found on other phones that different area ruu allow wifi and others don't. This is a UK based one. It may work in uk, may not but I will attend to as soon as I can like I always do. I ask for tests and feedback to find errors, all I ask iis try it.......find errors etc, posy em up.....then rrestore your own till I rectify it again.

Wasn't me............ ;)

you're the next dev here, you can count on us, to test your rom, and to share wht do's and dont's.

anyway, i wonder if the on off buttons will have reboot/recovery option. and the screenshot thing. or maybe torch flashlight. does it smthing to do with script or just a usual apk that is put in system/app ?

.. waiting for the next stage, mate.
