Hi Guys,

I Have managed to Port the ROM by zdzihu to Our Beloved Xperia Ray...Thanks to him for the Awesome ROM..

Visit Here to Know More
Here is the Actual Thread Quote:

Hi guys,

Here's the first release of the ROM I've been working on for some time now. This ROM is based on SEMC framework for compatibility (data connection etc), but introduces fully debranded system. ICELite is designed to be fast, lightweight and stable ROM ready for everyday's use. As usual, this is a BETA release, and I'm not responsible for any herp in case of derp or durr.
ICELite beta1


scaled.php

Summary:
This ROM is a pure AOSP experience without any bloatware. If you need Timescape/Whateverscape, please use the SEMC ICS beta ROM. I am not taking any feature requests - this is going to be barebone Android 4.0.3 without any addons. If you need battery mod/wallpaper/xyz support - please click here

Features:
- Wifi Direct app
- Latest Trebuchet launcher
- 0%-battery friendly
- HDMI + FM Radio
- gapps base included (you may download all necessary Google App from the market)

Bugs/Issues:
- I haven't had enough time to port AOSP incall screen, so I included my custom one (thanks SEMC)

Tips:
- setting animation scale to 0.5x (or even disable if you don't need eyecandy) improves overall speed/smoothness a lot

Cheers,
z

2) Turn off Phone and Enter into Fastboot Mode . ( Attach USB to PC while keeping Volume UP Pressed)

3) Flash the Kernel from HERE. (It has Built-in Recovery; Thanks to Sirkay for this one). Once Again If you already have Flashed Kernel by Sirkay then YOU DONT NEED TO FLASH AGAIN)

4) Turn on Phone, Enter Recovery. If you are coming from other ROMS do Factory Reset/Wipe Data... If coming from Previous version of ICELite you can just Flash the ROM but If if you have Lags or issues I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Full Wipe/Factory Reset...
(This Rom wont Boot if you use Recovery from your present Rom or using Stock ICS Kernel ... You have to flash the Rom with Recovery in Kernel.

5) Reboot... Have Fun...:)

DOWNLOADs
Please Read NEW Instructions before downloading these

1) Version 4 (Stable)

3) Custom Incoming caller Screens (Thanks to kormatoes).. (will upload Later)

4) Toggle Widgets and 1% Battery Mod and Icon
Although Toggle Widgets and Batt Mod are from JJROm but they are fully functional on ICELite..

So guys here are some Tips and Fixes for you


1) For GSM DATA FIX..

For those who cant get GSM DATA to work, Just Flash Hotfix_v2.zip from Downloads

OR

Manually
add your APN..APN Settings have been removed from this ROM. Download apn-conf.xml file and open it directly in Browser or with Notepad. Search your Carrier Name in List and Add exact Settings Data>Apn in Settings)

2) Work around for Messaging Led not working when Screen Off:

Download SMS Notifier... Awesome light application specific for messaging only with options of changing led color for messaging notification... Remember to turn off Notifications on ICS Messaging otherwise you will get dual notifications... It will solve led notifications when screen is off...;)

3) For FaceBoook Sync of Contacts

Download Foursquare Sync OR Friends Sync from Market and Sync you FaceBook contacts with it in Accounts and Sync in SETTINGS..

4) For Notification Counters on Messagin Icon and for Calls
Download Widget SMS Unread Notification from market.
Both are free and might be helpful... :)

Bugs:
Camera Shutter Sound not working

Not sure I'd call that a bug - I normally turn this off anyway!

---------- Post added at 09:55 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:37 AM ----------

Flashing now - looking forward to it. Thanks! :D


Also, on the SE ICS Beta, I used this method for installing CWM to the /system partition: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=19341487&postcount=21

I've no reason to think it wouldn't work on this one.

Thanks for Correction... Just fixed.. This Rom wont Boot if you use Recovery from your present Rom to Flash it.. You have to flash the rom with recovery in boot1.img

Not So good in kernel Stuff but I am planning to make a Universal patch for our Ray so that we can use ALL Roms from ARC/Neo Section based on Full Stock Kernels....;)

    This rom is really fast and smooth, but the battery is going down at a really unhealthy rate. I've used it for 16 hours today, now the battery usage graph has started looking like a cosine wave.

    I've also got problems with usb mass storage. << I fixed this problem.

    :S

    i already fixed it and reupload

    for bootcwm.img mass storage fixed
