I tested it myself, great ROM! It's quick and has many many themes! It was hard for me to get it to work, but finally I got it, and here is how:

KLICK

On the download site, choose the green button saying "普通下载".
If its not working, I maybe can download it and upload it somewhere else, because for me the download works (maybe because I'm behind the great firewall? hrhr)

After some testing, it seems like you have to flash a faux kernel for it to boot. And I can't seem to connect to any wifi networks nor is the cellular network working...

It is a great rom, the themes are amazing, it's quick and has many extra features, I would suggest it if we could get the connection problem solved, anyone have any ideas?

Ugh, sorry man, but this link includes just the webtop partition, not the full ROM.
Can you share the link for the full ROM? :(

It probably installs chinese radio along with the rom, which isn't compatible with our baseband. Once I finish downloading, I will have a look at it.

And yes, those themes do look amazing.

Sorry, I was a little too quick haha :D
But now someone posted the link ;-)

Edit:
I will try this one, too, because I have a chinese Atrix (says ATT on box, but came with chinese retail) and with neutrino rom, my batterie gets killed too fast... Like 14% over night with no data and no wifi, so around 20-30% with wifi on.

Maybe this rom with the chinese Radio will work for me...
I had a chine Radio installed before BP_N_something and thats not working with Neutrino (says Baseband unknown).

I will report if this one is better for my bat!

I confirm that flashing the 37 radio doesn't work, it still won't pick anything up... Hopefully we can get some help...

Hey! I haven't flash the rom yet because I'm busy with my thesis...
But some days ago, I found this chinese site with all the chinese Radios (BP_N_***) and some other Radios that should work with the chinese Rom.

Maybe one of these is working for you?

CLICK HERE FOR RADIOS

Edit:
It may work with the BP-Radio, beacuse with my stock chinese ROM, only the BP-Radios worked (maybe Kernel related...), and with Neutrino, no BP_N_*** Radio got any connection. Maybe this hint can help?

Thanks, I'll test these... It's a really nice ROM, I would prefer it over anything else I have used before...

Question:

Do I need to flash webtop?
I'm not using it at the moment...
If I don't flash webtop, I don't need the fix, right?

P.S.:
I can upload the themes soon!


Edit:
WTF?! What kind of boot animation is that? The "Atrix" looks nice, but why sound?? Can I change that??

Edit2:
Sorry, can't upload the themes, mediafire is blocked in china and with vpn it will take like one month :p

If you don't flash the webtop then you don't need the fix... You can change the boot animation, find one in the themes section and replace the current one in /system/media to change it....

Ok, so I have tested this rom now!

Looks very nice!

I choose the Sony-Skin with white letters on black background.

But I have to say, it's not as smooth as the CM7 Neutrino Rom.
I will give it a day or two and then decide if I go back to my old backup!

But the skins are awesome. I love the taskbar, I love the Sony-App-Menu (had an Xperia before) and I love the background of the settings.

Just miss the smoothness and that's a killer for me :/

I'm using the 1.41 Radio to check battery life.
Any idea how I can acces the batterystat menu like on any other rom? I can't find this graph thingy...

you should really try using "betterbatterystats" either from the thread in the general Android development section "android apps and games" its free, or go to the play store and download it there. i've also done a review of it on my youtube channel if you want to see what it does and how to use it. it's the best battery stat app out there period =)

    Afaik, at xda there is not such kernel, perhaps on the original (chinese) forum/bbs someone had done it.
