Not developed actively anymore. You can update to cm-13.0.

This is an unofficial build of CM12.1.
This is an attempt to stay close to official cm12.1 and not make crazy hacks to make things working.

This is a pure CM build, only contains official CM features. I will not add any other external feature/app/etc.

WARNING: This ROM uses a modified internal memory layout.
Our /system partition is originally 400MB but this space is not enough for a fluid experience and a full installation with proper google apps.
The internal storage has been repartitioned to give the whole space to /system & /cache. You will need a secondary partition on your SD card to be used as the /data partition.

If you want to use this ROM you will always have to use the included kernel or use a kernel that includes the layour changes. Bug reports with non-standard kernels will be ignored.
You will have to wipe the device and make a clean install.
You cannot restore nandroid backups from previous android versions or restore backups from this ROM to other ROMs that don't use the new partition layout since you risk corrupting the data.
I suggest to use Titanium Backup, Helium or any other similar app to backup your data if you really need to.


Requirements:
* Have the stock ICS 4.1.B.0.587 full ftf flashed (doesn't matter if you have flashed it in the past or if you flash it before installing cm12.1, it will work both ways)
* LT15i (Arc) users need to flash LT18i (Arc S) ftf
* MT15i (Neo) users need to flash MT11i (Neo V) ftf
* Minimum 2GB secondary ext4 partition for /data on class 10 SD card.

Steps required for correct installation (order is important):
1: Flash boot.img in fastboot & reboot into recovery
2 (optional): If the device is not booting, reboot to bootloader again and run:
fastboot erase system
3: Enter recovery
4: Format /system using System-Formating-Tool_signed.zip (can be found here) , then /data and then /cache (Important step!)
5: Flash update zip
6: Flash gapps

Steps 2, 4, 6 are not needed when you install new LX build on top of an older one in the future

If you want to return to a ROM that doesn't use the new partition layout, you need to follow the above steps again (only replace boot.img & update zip with the ones you want to use).

I followed LX wiki marshmallow installation guide ,
- Followed each step perfectly upto " Wipe SD card"
- But problem started in "" Flash the images using sideload "":crying::crying:
- Yes I followed,
- reboot again to recovery (Note: the "reboot recovery" option does not work. Do a normal reboot and press the recovery key instead)
- connect USB to PC
- Select Apply update > Apply from ADB
- Thats it.... My phone simply showing just two options like this > Apply from ADB
> cancel ABD
- I am stucked here....:confused: Dunno whats next.

- Actually I cant understand this step - 4. Sideload LX13 rom (takes 10 minutes). Example:
adb sideload cm-13.0-20160224-UNOFFICIAL-LegacyXperia-urushi.zip

Have you tried Mardon's mini GApps?

I have been using this for 6 months on a Neo V, with a class 10 Samsung EVO 16GB card and its very slow. Youtube stutters for 2 minutes before stabilizing, web browsers crash (especially chrome), phone hangs (can't even turn off monitor), boot takes ~3-5 minutes. The whole feeling is slow.

I'm about to downgrade, is there anything I could try before? Like light mode setting (kernel?) I don't know.

Lollipop is the worst choice for our devices since it runs on an unoptimized runtime (ART). CM11 runs on classic runtime (Dalvik), and CM13 on an optimized ART. My recommendation would be for you to try CM13 as it performs beautifully (still has some minor bugs though). If you want to be on the safe side CM11 is the choice, but you will have to manage your app's storage manually (Link2SD)

I am used with the link2sd situation from the past in case I'd go CM11. Your reply was very useful. I might give CM13 a shot.

Also try to keep Google services on system partition (integrate updates with Link2SD), it helps quite a bit in keeping original performance, and don't expect too much from apps like Chrome or Facebook, they are just too demanding and will present stutters.

both AOSP and CM12.1 run faster without GAPPS .. AOSP runs even faster than cm12.1 on my Xperia play .. what is recommended ..

1. to run AOSP last build which was about July 2015 i believe.. with MicroG or not Gapps at all.. or

2. cm12.1 latest build without GAPPS. Feb 2016 build ??

cm 13 or 14 are out of question because of the call delay. specially more on Xperia Play than Xperia Arc i guess.

CM12 is not supported anymore. If you don't want CM13, use CM11. I prefer CM over AOSP, it has more built-in functionality, but that's just my personal preference.

camera for Xperia play doesnt work in cm11. it does on cm12 and above.. but evey ROM has its own set of problems..

i know not supported anymore.. cm is more functionality than AOSP but thats where the ROM lags too. AOSP is lighter than CM ROMS..

    We are very close to release, just need to figure out some bugs and write proper instructions for new unified partition layout.
    There is no point of unofficial releases on xda, since I am sure many people will flash it and then complain it's broken.

    You are free to build from the sources yourselves but releasing unfinished stuff on xda can lead to noob soft-bricking their devices or 'help plzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!111!' messages

    cm-12.1 support will stop after the next release, so we can concentrate on cm-13.0.

    New builds

    Hi guys, after long time some new builds are coming.
    I have included some improvements for LPA, you should be able to use it now to get rid of music stuttering.
    You can test it by adding lpa.decode=true in build.prop. It is known that LPA breaks a2dp streaming, we are trying to fix it.
    You might also notice that the headset volume is louder than usual and audio effects might distort the sound.

    ## Nightly build 20150723 - cm-12.1
    * Latest cm12.1 changes
    * Use upstream gp2a proximity sensor kernel driver (zeus)
    * Fixed CVE-2015-5366
    * Decreased zRAM size to 128MB
    * Added support for DM9601 based USB ethernet
    * Fixed mounting of non-FAT formatted SD cards
    * Set FIOPS as default IO scheduler instead of ROW
    * Updates & fixes for LPA
    * Testing lowmemorykiller changes to improve zRAM OOM issues

    Builds will roll for all devices tomorrow, after the cm-11.0 builds are up.
