The rPort Project is a collection of ROM ports for every major skinned version of Android (e.g. MotoBlur, Touchwiz, Sony UX, etc.). These ROMs are fully stable all through development and are ready for everyday use as new features are being ported. An rPort is different than a traditional port for the fact that we slowly introduce features into the ROM as they become operational. Thus keeping the ROM's ready for everyday activity.
Xpert ROM is the XPERIA rPort.

About Impulse Response Samplers
Starting from FX v2.2.0.2 IR samples are no longer in WAV extension its now IRS (so that music player will not recognize it) if you found WAV IR samples from the internet you can rename the extension to IRS to use in V4A Convolver.

For ViPER4Android FX Usage
Extract all .IRS to <storage>/ViPER4Android/Kernel/<paste files here>
*If you do not see the Kernel folder, create it. Make sure its inside /ViPER4Android/

We spend large amount of our free time developing these rPort’s. We can't spend as much time on XDA due to this, so if you need assistance, please try the following:

1) Search. They have a search function for a reason. There are many pages in our thread and an answer may be in there if you do a little digging.

2) Try working out your issue yourself before posting it. You may be able to fix it and gain some knowledge along the way.

3) Ask a question on the thread. Someone (not always a team member) will most likely come to your aid. Assuming that your question isn’t ridiculous or downright dumb.
Donate to the rPort Project

Thanks to all our users out there who have provided their patience and support for the rPort project! When you donate remember, every penny you send to us goes right back into the rom. It's used for hardware, server costs, etc - all the things that help us make Carbon better with every release. Your support means the world to us!
Please Do Not Port or Copy My Work Without Permission. Thanks.

Sweet! Downloading as we speak and will be testing it out tomorrow.
Appreciate it :good:

will report back


---------------------Update for V1.0-----------------------------
I actually had quiet a few issues with it.
1) The launcher will force close at times and also if you click the theme option under the home screen edit view.
2) My home button/screen would be unresponsive at times for some odd reason requiring me to
3) besides the launcher there was nothing more xperiaish to it. I would like to see more!

Besides that it did run kind off smooth but the sudden screen locks really made this a hassle.

Appreciate your hard work and different approach. Looking forward to all the fixes in the future thou.

Why don't you read the op again as it clearly says this is not an xperia port. Everything is just themed to look like it.

Thank you Esteway. Also it is only v1.0 This is just my starting point. New features will be added. I do plan to mod the system ui with xperia soft keys and change the opacity to 80%. Also it has many of the xperia widgets. I am going to be adding xperia apps in the next version too. Which I plan on releasing in the upcoming days.

I do embrace constructive criticism very openly. As this is a first version I am more likely to add what my uses suggest as opposed to later on version 3 for example. Also make sure your constructive criticism is actually constructive.

Can't you make a flashable zip for this to use with a rom as an addon package . Just like the touchwiz ui thread in themes and apps section . I think its better to post this in themes and apps section if it only contain ui changes . it's ok to post in development if this is actually a port as i think .

No offence buddy . just shared my opinion here . Good luck with future versions .

I am an xperia user and i really want to try this rom but, i'll wait for full or almost full port.

Keep this work. It's interesting

This is half and half. Parts are ported and modded. Others are not.

Track ID doesn`t work for me. Error 70001 in the app.

Hopefully you could port the Navigationbar-icons and the Live-wallpaper and other Apps too. Don`t get me wrong, but for now it just feel like another rom with changed bootanimation and another launcher. But I`m really looking forward to this rom, cause I like the Sony-overlay and have to wait till my contract ends :)
