General Feedback:
I tested the rom now few hours and i can say its really the best rom out there for arc s !

its faster than Racing Bean 3.1 !
The battery life is awesome and the UI looks very beautyfull.

One of the best thinks are you can choose what you personally like on aroma installer.

If you like Xperia style you can select xperia or if you like aosp you can select aosp or a xperia/aosp mix!
You have many options that you can choose!

Thanks to Headfox for this awsome ROM !


Performance:

The performance is one of the best thinks in Headfox's racing bean!
You can play much 3D games like Modern Combat 4 or Templerun 2 without laggs!

You can not tell me that you know a faster ROM for arc s!

with the awesome fluid engine your ui is very fast and without any laggs.


Battery:

If your CPU settings like this:

Min.: 364 Mhz
Max.: 1017 Mhz

and powersave than you have the best mix of performance and battery life!

Test it yourself and you will see the life is very good!

Hi,

(posted this 2 days ago on RAY session....now i can post on the correct session )

Installed this ROM 2 days ago (i was using the original RB 3.1)

After 2 days of use i just can say this :

THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST AND FASTEST ROM YOU CAN GET ON ARC S

The UI is ALLWAYS smooth, can perfectly play latest 3d games, good battery life (phone was charged 2 days ago and still have 14%)

Thanks HeadFox for this great rom

Hmm.... No statut error at the end of AROMA installation ?
Have you made a full wipe before install ?
The first boot is very long..
