This ROM is powered by latest X-PLODE tweak pack:


(click me)




For Xperia mini, mini pro, walkman and active
Tested on LOCKED/UNLOCKED bootloader!

I'm not a coder/ programmer, I simply enjoy modding and learning Android
This is a >modded< [enhanced] Sony stock ROM build 4.0.2.A.0.62
It's built from square in dsixda's kitchen.


This is what I use daily as my personal ROM.
I decided to share this, although it might not satisfy everyones taste
I've put a lot of work in it, so I really hope you'll like it!

X-MoD will change your phone experience.
It's built to be used as an every day ROM.
It's smooth, fast, very battery friendly, light, stable and good lookin'

>NOTE<

Regarding CPU undervolt&underclock:
R5 introduces multiple CPU profiles to choose from.
Basic profiles are:
-FullSpeed: this profile sets the CPU frequency to 1GHz, no undervolting
-Balanced: this profile sets the CPU frequency to 768MHz
-SuperSave: this profile sets the CPU frequency to 652MHz
-UltraSave: this profile sets the CPU frequency to 576MHz

Scaling profiles have two governors. Sleep governer is ondemand, while awake governor depends on chosen profile.

All profiles also contain governor tweaks. Depending on profile they're tweaked to be battery saving or performance oriented.

Now, before you go nuts saying that's too low etc.
All frequencies have been extensively tested. The ROM runs SMOOTH even on 576MHz!
We all know that saving battery while operating the phone/ screen on, is very difficult. Well this comes a HUGE powersaver.
Because not all users may like this, you have the ability to choose what you want or not want
If you choose a low frequency but wish to play a game, simply open SystemTuner or go to settings> CPU Control, and set the freq to 1GHz or whatever.
The next reboot will reset the freq to your default chosen one unless you specify setting to be permanent.
I personally run the phone with UltraSave, 576MHz everyday. No gaming odc

FullSpeed and Balanced work with stock kernel.

SuperSave and UltraSave do not work because of different frequency stepping.
UV and screenstate scaling also won't work on stock kernel. Stock does not support UV and does not support additional governors.

X-MoD_R8 uploaded

Long time ago I was working on this final update which should fix some issues I guess.
Unfortunately I lost some of my data then. So I found this zip a few days ago and I thought if anyone still uses GB and this ROM, why not upload it.
I do not work on this ROM anyomore. I uploaded this ROM zip just like I found it. I've made no changes at all.
So..... enjoy

Root access and minipro camera flash bugz fixes:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Root access issue:
If you should happen to have root acces problems, try flashing this patch: http://devhost.xda-developers.com/VXA [thanX to Blantosz who pointed out the solution]

Steps you can try if you're having trouble with root access:
-Install SuperSU from market

-Find and change follwing line in build.prop to be dalvik.vm.dexopt-flags=m=y
-open ROM zip, and copy /system/xbin/su to /system/bin

Do not move, just copy so it's in both places. Then try to flash the ROM.

MiniPro flash issue:
If you have Mini Pro, if flash doesn't fire when taking picture, flash this patch: http://devhost.xda-developers.com/3V7





------>>>------------>>>------NOTE------<<<------------<<<------
R7 is going to be the final version of this ROM I think.... :-/
GB is old news now. Most ppl have moved on to ICS.
Maybe I'll make an ICS X-MoD version?
I will however try to fix any major bugz you may encounter.
So I'm still supporting this ROM, just not developing....
The new ICS like theme and the new lockscreen is thought as a present for all users of this ROM, since this is the final version.
I really hope you enjoy it! I enjoyed making it, as hard as it was. And still there are some bugz -.-

I think X-MoD as a GB ROM has come to it's optimum.
Meaning I made it the best I know, maximum battery life is achieved (one of the best among our GB ROMs I think), while retaining very high performance.
There's nothing more that can be tweaked, upgraded or enhanced for that matter. Except cosmetics maybe. It's finished finally
I wanna thank all users and ppl that helped me, and for all the support in making this ROM
Moving on!

I tested it with BatteryDrain analyser, on Xkernel.

No extra apps, just a clean ROM installation.
Both wifi and data being off.

EDiT: It may jump a bit higher from time to time because of a wakelock. But in general, that's it.
