[ credits for features ]

refer to my Arc kernel thread



[ requirements ]

  • stock SE 4.0.2.A.0.42/.58/.62 FW
  • bootloader unlocked
  • working fastboot



[ how to install this kernel ]

  1. download the boot.img
  2. save the boot.img in the folder with fastboot binaries (fastboot.exe files)

  5. use the following command to flash the boot.img
    Code:

Incase you are installing this over kernel other than stock, you may run into wifi not working issue... in that case flash the wifi modules for stock kernel via recovery to get it working again...

  2. there are multiple notifications to tell u when to press the entry key:

Features of my custom touch edition recovery

base recovery sources are from koush/CyanogenMod/FreeXperia Team... i have added more features to it and my team mate, Napstar, has worked on adding the Touch capabilities...




[ features ]

  • remapped key layouts for specifically for Xperia PLAY
  • revamped layout for recovery menu (to improve navigation) [renamed few options and changed their order]
  • changed "wipe data/factory reset" option to just "factory reset", and detailed the partitions which will be wiped
  • added reboot options
    • reboot into system
    • reboot into recovery
    • reboot into fastboot mode
  • some modification in "Partition SDCard" section:
    • put up a confirmation to warn the user that this option will wipe sdcard
    • added ability to select filesystem when creating new layout
  • add confirmation to "backup" option in Nandroid menu... it used to keep getting pressed by mistake and start making backups immediately... now it will ask u before starting backup ;)
  • removed tons of "NO"s from some menus...


[ how to enter recovery ]

  1. when the device is booting the new bootlogo will be shown, keep watching the notification LED
  2. when the LED turns BLUE keep pressing the BACK button
  3. you will now enter my custom recovery


[ how to navigate in recovery ]

  • the recovery is touch edition so controls are on screen
  • if someone prefers to use hardware buttons the the mapping is as follows:
    • BACK button -- to go BACK in menu
    • HOME button -- to navigate UP in menu
    • MENU button -- to navigate DOWN in menu
    • SEARCH button -- to SELECT menu item

Unfortunately Wi-Fi on my Generic .62 is broken. Shows "Error" instead of "Turn on Wi-Fi".

Maybe the reason is that my previous kernel was your 08 DooMKernel with correct Wi-Fi libs and now they're incompatible with this kernel?

This is what I have been waiting for, never been a fan of over clocking, so now I get all the DooMLoRD goodness, and none of the other bits I don't really like.

I think I'll be buying u another drink later mate, seeing as its pay day tomorrow!! :D

i can flash this kernel with clockworkmod?, if yes. How?

Nope, you would need a dedicated recovery partition which the device lacks.

Don't mean to sound stupid or anything, but this is a kernal, so u need to use FASTBOOT to flash it, not recovery at all, wither it has a dedicated recovery partition or not.

I've never hear of using recovery to flash a boot.img file, only .zip update or mod files.

[*][v01 onwards] added support for bootsounds (currently broken on stock rom but same code works perfectly on CM7 so i will work more on this later)

How is that going??
Would love to have a nice sound when I boot my XPlay, like the PS3 boot sound, or seeing as i'm a retro gamer, the PS1 sound :)

P.S. Hope u can enjoy another beer on me :)

  • rootfs and /system mounted as rw (thank you Blagus for the tip ;))

Why do you do this ?
Is it impossible to get it to work otherwise ?
(adb remount is not exactly difficult to do)

Its convenient because you can test a command knowing it will fail and then remount it if you need to.

I can only guess at how much more hassle for people trying to use a touchscreen for file management have.

(If there is something to do with breaking recovery etc then that is a valid reason).

There are benefits to a minimal amount of changes.

So what would it need to do to get ap2sd working on this kernel? Is it the same as the Doom Kernel? I'm curious to see how the battery lasts with this kernel the 42 ftf and 36 baseband and libs
