Latest update
- Uploaded V0.8 (see changelog below for changes)

FlyKernel
Its purpose:
- Smoothest experience possible
- Stay as close to stock as possible
- Only the most useful governors, io scheds and tweaks will be included
- Let the users have input on features
- But most important of all: Let the Ray Fly.

Features
- Works with al .431 and .587 based roms (miui also). I recommend a .587 based one.
- OC up to 1.6 Ghz and undervolting (Arc S frequency table, with some added freqs)
- Build with linaro 4.7.2 (aug 2012) and board specific flags
- Kernel: 2.6.32.59 (2.6.32.9 is still available in v0.5)
- SmartassV2 and SavagedZen (recommend smartassv2)
- Noop, deadline, SIO and CFQ (recommend noop)
- Ext 3/4 and NTFS support
- Two way call recording
- OTG
- SLQB
- TinyRCU
- Zram (as in stock)
- Init.d support
- Tweaked
- WiFi embedded in kernel

Bugs
Code:
Fix for usb storage to pc (if not working for some reason, 
for example on jellysandwich)
- Connect usb cable
- Disable/stop HDMI in settings->app->all
- Disconnect
- settings -> xperia -> usb con ->Disable companion message
- settings -> xperia -> usb con ->Switch to the usb mode 
  which is not set (dont remember if it was msc or mtp)
- Connect
- Disconnect
- Switch to MTP mode
- Connect
- Disconnect
- Switch to MSC mode
- Then it worked for me for some reason.. 
If its not working just switch a couple of times between mtp and msc 
and reconnect cable couple of times
In the end it shoulld be working in MSC mode.

Only for V0.1
- If wifi is not working:
     - Backup original modules (rename /system/lib/modules 
       to /system/lib/modulesbak)
     - Flash updatewifi-signed.zip via recovery OR
     - Push the contents of the 
       modules.zip to /system/lib/modules/ (first delete the original files)
Support me
I dont host on moneymaking sites, because they are slow so;
Feel free to help my buy a new HTPC and donate or at least hit Thanks.

I´m a new developer for the Ray. I come from the LG gt540, for which I created TWRP ports (only touch recovery for the device).
I have now created a kernel based on the 4.1.B.0.587 sources by Sony.
It´s called:

FlyKernel
Its purpose:
- Smoothest experience possible
- Stay as close to stock as possible
- Only the most useful governors, io scheds and tweaks will be included
- Let the users have input on features
- But most important of all: Let the Ray Fly.

At the moment its very smooth and gets around 4000 in antutu (smartassv2 1,4ghz).
Let me know what you guys want in the kernel, which governers, which IO schedulers etc. I want to keep it as minimal as possible.

Install

  • Flash Tool OR
  • fastboot –i 0x0fce flash boot flykernel0_1.img
