Plz PM me if any links die, ill remove them

Quick Review :

- Everything works!
- New bootlogo (SONY), new bootanimation (Walkman) and new baseband 72, old kernel 2.6.32.9
- Games work fine, you might notice a little lag, but since the OS install is fresh maybe that is why. I tested temple run, the accelerometer works fine and touches are responsive as they should be (infact i feel higher fps, not sure though).
- Accelerometer in normal app rotations might be a lil slow as compared to CM7.2. But thats not a major problem is it?
- Walkman app, launcher are the same, but with new icons from NXT theme
- As compared to my friend's neo v on .562, this is smoooooth....infact just like 2.3.4, quick and responsive
- Camera is the same as on Minicmsandwich lite AOSP
- Phone app (Infinite view) is slow, but is now perfectly resized for mdpi
- Calender & Calculator are same
- Two galleries - Xperia gallery(similar to 2.3.4 gallery) and ICS standard gallery
- Little jerkiness while recording 720p with image stabilizer ON, with it off, no problems.
- Track ID still wont work for lost DRM keys, unless u install the new version from Play store.
- Brightness Levels are less as compared to non stock roms like CM7.2, etc.
- Battery life needs to be tested!!!

The boot animation reminds me of my old w810i ....aaah....that feeling. As many people were crying about the performance, man this rom is speedy....play store automatically installed my last 23 apps, and this thing never hung for a second....:eek:

plus good to see the walkman key working and the lights working together! :p

Finally a good day for all of us!

if we have unlock bootloader and network unlock and or custom kernel can we use this to test and go back to our custom kernel/rom?

One question!
I once did a gb update ota. after that all my apps had gone. so the phone was set back to factory settings.
When i take this ftf file and flash it via flashtool over my current stock gb rom, will it also be set back to factory settings?
