HOWTO

Install instructions:

- fastboot reboot
- enter recovery, on boot led will be violet for 3'', during this period press vol+

FXP......can you guys confirm that whether the HDMI and touchscreen button LED light working?.... hence when im using some application like papago M9....it only starts the app but leave it with blackscreen.
Currently i'm running CM9 nightly 2012-10-07 , my device is LT28H.
I had found 3 bugs: HDMI is not working , touchscreen button LED light and 3G data.

1. HDMI: not woking
2. Touchscreen button led light: By going to Setting/Display/Brightness and then change the brightness, i can have the light turned on and stay awake. But after the phone go to sleep and back , it's turn off .
3. 3G data not working: after choosing network mode to LTE/GSM , it said the mode is LTE/WCDMA/GSM and data enabled, with correct APN , i can see the H icon near the signal icon . But i can't connect to internet . It works before with the stock rom (i have unlimited data plan)

Also it seems the audio quality is not so good as the stock rom, i'm not sure but i will recheck by reinstall the stock rom and wait for the new nightly build .

However, i really love Cyanogenmod and have been using for all of my device: Asus TF101 , TF300T , GT-N7000 , HTC Wildfire .... Thanks so much
I will help FreeXperia Team by reporting any bugs i can find with every nightly build you release.
Hope we will have a stable build for Ion soon

@FXP

1. The recovery is not able to access external sd.
2. Do we require this line in recovery.fstab
/boot emmc /dev/block/mmcblk0p3
3. I made the recovery.fstab and bootrec-device-fs to look like this
/cache ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p16
/data ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p17
/system ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p15
/sdcard vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p1
/emmc vfat /dev/block/mmcblk0p18
mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p18 /emmc
I build the boot.img again. Now I am able to access the external_sd and able to flash files from it.

I have attached the boot.img.zip ... unzip and flash it, if some one wants to test it.

Let me know if this is ok.

After updating the updater-script file to include LT28i I was able to install it on my phone. Woot! I'm also experiencing the bad audio quality issue that others have reported, but otherwise things are great so far! So nice to be rid of all the bloat of the stock roms. On stock my phone constantly had memory management issues but that seems to be a thing of the past now. Sweet!

Flash the attached zip. It improves the audio by notches. I don't take credit for it. Found it somewhere on XDA.
