-Try to take full advantage of the xperia facebook experience.
Your facebook photos sync with the albums app and friend's music now shows up in the walkman app.
Birthdays events etc all sync to your calendar. Go to settings>accounts and add an xperia with facebook account.

-Check out the dcikonz pack by Daniel Czarnomorski. Go to to launcher settings>appearance to enable.

Uninstall semaphore manager before flashing. It messes with oc settings. People have been using various workarounds to deal with it. I think I found the best solution for now. I enabled bigmem, tun, lock min to 100mhz, smoothui as scripts. If you want to enable any other option you'd normally use semaphore manager for, request the script. I will post all the options as zip files with the scripts. Nstools is included and now you can use it as the only app for oc'ing without worrying about settings not being restored correctly on boot and clashing with the semaphore manager app.

Can you name it as V2 and V1 with .zip files?
Because of the link to V1 and V2 are the same
