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..)"
"This ROM is just the best thing that happened to my phone. Lightning fast!!!
"Really great rom with amazing performance! The fastest one I ever used I use this rom in game mode and the multitasking is even better than the multitasking in other roms. It is as fast as a gingerbread!! "
"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."
