**Read These Notes Before Downloading the ROM!!**

** ROM Installation **

Because our partitions values assignment are changed, every user before to install this ROM should follow these simple steps so exactly as Christopher said now we have plenty of space for system (1.3 GB), cache (520 MB) and data + internal sd (4.7 GB) partitions.
  • First you will need to download the modified recovery from Here (Don't flash it!!)
  • Make a Backup as usual to your phone stuff like apps, Whatsapp conversations ecc....
  • Backup your internal sd content, because all its content will be lost so make sure to backup everything like photos, videos ecc....(you can copy the full content on a pc or inside a new folder of your external sd)
  • Now Reboot inside CWM or TWRP recovery which not includes new partition assignments
  • Make a Nandroid backup of your entirely ROM and backup it on the external sd
  • Install the new TWRP recovery that includes new partition assignments
  • Make a Reboot Recovery (To reboot inside the new one)
  • Wipe Data as ext4 partition (Wipe -> Advanced Wipe -> Select Data -> Repair or Change File System -> Change File System -> EXT4 -> Swipe)
  • Make a Wipe for Dalvik Cache, Cache and System
  • Now you can Download the ROM from the Downloads section under this post
  • Once you downloaded plug the device on the computer , then mount USB Storage (Make sure that MTP is enabled)
  • If you finished copying your files than you're free to install the ROM now

** General Notes **
  • If you're flashing Smart Connect and Lifelog from Reborn Addons don't try to update them through Google Play if it ask you because they will not work anymore because these two apps are ported for non Xperia apps
  • DON'T and don't try flash any type of music mod. If you want to flash an audio mod, let me know by PM or post it here on the thread.
