Hello friends and fellow xda users!I’m proudly presents you my first Customized Rom named LXperia ZSeries™ Rom base on LX-CM11 by mikeioannina.

Why LXperia ZSeries™?? “LXperia” stands for “Legacy Xperia” since this is based on LX builds
and also it’s my own little way of giving appreciation for their awesome works! And “ZSeries™” simply because this has the Looks and feel of SONY™ “Z” Series phones (such as Z1 & Z2) so comes the name “LXperia ZSeries™”

Exclamation Instructions & Downloads!
Instructions:

Quote:

1st Part: (for coconut, pls. proceed to 2nd part Installation.)

This is for other MDPI Device (e.g. Smultron, Satsuma, Mango) [TESTING][Full Compatibility Mode]:

Since this Rom is Designed for LWW/coconut, Installation for other MDPI's is a bit long so
please observe and follow the Instruction carefully. (will be fix in the next release).

Warning!non-observance of the instruction will lead to a lot of errors!

*Preparing the Resources:

1. Download the LXperia_CM11-03192014_baseROM_v1.0 then,

2. Download yourdevice_name_MERGE_FILES_to baseROM (e.g. SK17i_mango_minipro_MERGE_FILES_to baseROM)
warning!!it's not a flashable Zip.

  • extract it and merge it to LXperia_CM11-03192014_baseROM_v1.0 (including the META-INF folder) and it will
    replace all the files currently present in the baseROM.

Noobs:
Open LXperia_CM11-03192014_baseROM_v1.0.zip archive using 7Zip or WinRaR, leave it open then extract
yourdevice_name_MERGE_FILES_to baseROM.zip then "select all" using ctrl+A and then
drag and drop to previously opened archive-->(LXperia_CM11-03192014_baseROM_v1.0.zip).


3. Download Dev-files for your device (e.g.Dev_files_for_SK17i_mango_minipro).4. Download LXperiaZSeries_romUPDATES_cm11-03192014_v1.0 and delete the build.prop inside it.

5. Follow the next Installation Instructions.

Quote:

2nd Part:

1. Back-up your device via cwm.

2. Must have 8x55A-AAABQOAZM-203028G-77 baseband version. If not flash stock ICS WT19i_4.1.b.0.587_generic.ftf using flash tool.

3. Download kernel from mike’s source here since he’s not allowing for redistribution of his kernel, use wobzip.org or download the whole rom.

4. Download LXperia_CM11-03192014_baseROM_v1.0 and LXperiaZSeries_romUPDATES_cm11-03192014_v1.0 and save it to sd card.

5. Non-LWW users please merge files for your respective device and delete the build.prop inside the romUPDATES zip (pls. refer to 1st Part Installation Guide).

5. Flash the downloaded build_03192014 kernel via fastboot.(i’m using this software se bootloader_unlocking_relocking 1.6.2)

6. Use only the specified kernel for it’s corresponding builds. Non use of specified kernel will lead to system instability or incompatibility and i can’t help you with that.

7. Boot into recovery, when the led light is purple press volume down then it will turn to blue.

-mounts and storage
then;

  • reboot phone,then wait for it to settle a little bit. (30 secs. Or so.)
  • don’t use it yet or test any apps as it’s not stable yet, back key will not work yet.
  • reboot to recovery again.
  • (non-LWW) Flash the Dev-files according to your device (e.g.Dev_files_for_SK17i_mango_minipro)
  • flash the second part (LXperiaZSeries_romUPDATES_cm11-03192014_v1.0)
  • (mango only) flash this framework for HW keyboard compatibility [Testing].

Cool Changelogs, Bugs & Tips and Tricks!
Quote:

CHANGELOG:
version 1.0 (Initial Release)


1. Base on LX-CM11 03192014 build by mikeioannina.(head over to his Thread and Hit Thanks!=)

2. Optimized framework for MDPI, removed unused files thus reducing size to 11MB (will do more system app as possible as I value our very limited space.)

3. Sony Z Series Styled framework, themed to vintage for the more kitkat feel.

4. Introducing Semc Conversation app, A first in CM ROMS..again..Thanks to Ashishdubey=)

5. Sony Media & Walkman Apps.

6. Lite GAPPS (basic) included and associated libs.

  • PrebuiltGMS Core
  • Google Play Store
  • Google Mail
  • YouTube
  • Velvet.apk
  • And more.

7. Most apps change accents according to theme.(will add more apps in the near future=)

8. White themed Settings.apk with icons change according to theme accents.

9. 140 pixels DPI

10. Modified audio_policy & audio_effects.conf to use all libs needed then removed unused libs to avoid conflicts thus
producing crisp sound and deep bass. Hear the difference!

11. Updated host file.

12. Some really Nice animation when opening app

13. and many More!...



Code:
BUGS:

1. All Bugs presents in LX-CM11 builds.	
2. Music Player in lockscreen is squeezed a bit since we’re using 140dpi. (see fix in tips & tricks)
3. Xloud sounds reducing within 5 secs. Or so. (see fix in tips & tricks)
4. And some that I might not notice..


Quote:

TIPS &TRICKS!

1. For Xloud™,S-Force & ClearPhase™, when using Walkman or Movies notice that the phone speaker sound will reduce in 5 secs. Or so, that is because it both uses Soundenhancement and the system will prioritized SoundEnhancement than AudioeffectService and the system will kill the latter thus speaker sound will noticeably reduced. So comes the technique of killing SoundEnhancements for the AudioeffectService came back to service again so Xloud™,S-Force & ClearPhase™ can be activated again. By default it is system wide activated,and will only reduced if you use apps that uses soundenhancement or other player that has it's own equalizer.

Temporary Fix:

  • Go to Developer Option and enable "kill app back button",Open walkman player, play some music then go to Soundenhancement and long pressed the back key to kill the app,and sound will be loud again.
  • Or in developer option,enable "Development Shortcut", In Notification Bar long-pressed "Soundenhancement" you will see three options there,choose "FORCE-STOP",or simply without activating the "Development Shortcut" just press SoundEnhancement in Notifications and it will take you directly to the App options,you can Force-Stop it there.
  • for poweramp if you are using it too,you can simply disable DVC under settings/audio and sound will be loud again.


2. LockScreen Music player is squeezed a bit!not a bug i guess ..since this Rom use 140DPI, you can fix it by either enabling "Expanded Desktop"(Recommended) or maximizing the lockscreen widget in Settings/Lockscreen/Maximize widgets.

3. Bluetooth drainage is higher when your not using it than when your using it (i.e. connected to a bluetooth headset.) So please make sure to turn off the bluetooth when your not using it.

4. Kernel Boots take a lil bit longer than stocks, but the bootanimation is faster on 2nd or 3rd Reboot.

Some Audio Tips:
1. For In-Ear type headsets, you can try this as base EQ Settings and try to play some good bass music(i.e. Turn Me On by David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj)

Also enable :

  • Clear Stereo

  • and play around with VPT Surrounds, I use Concert Settings.


2. For Regular Headsets, using an earphone cotton cover really makes a difference
Try this Settings too.
