First of all, I NEVER claims that I am a developer, I am just an advanced user and also a XDA Recognized Themer. If you wonder who I am, have a look on what I had done in past.. ;)

Xperia Arc is my second (spare) phone, my works are mainly focused on HTC Sensation. As a themer, I love to mod my phone to becomes unique and different with those generic phone. So here I present to you all my own themed ROM for Xperia Arc / Arc S. This is not just a THEMED STOCK ROM, thanks to all modders here I am able to combine all the goodness of their respective mods and hence produce this ROM.

This is a daily ROM for my own Xperia Arc and I can say that it is stable enough for me to share with you guys, if you found any bugs feel free to inform me but PLEASE be appropriate and do not flame other members here, XDA is a peace community.. :)

If you writing about bugs, please attach logcat if possible, let me know which device you are using, describe what you done before, what mods and kernel you had installed!
You must give me information as much as you can or else me and other members can't help you!
I can't read your mind, so please do not post messages like "I got FC blablabla" or "+1" without any additional information.

HOW TO INSTALL VIPER XPERIA
BEFORE YOU PROCEED TO INSTALL THIS ROM

- Make sure you had installed Official 4.0.4 ftf pack
- If you don't have it, have a look on Post 3, download from the link provided
- When flashing official ftf pack remember to exclude / tick these things:
1. simlock.ta (Exclude TA)
2. Kernel.sin (Exclude kernel)
3. FOTA (Exclude FOTA)


- After flash successful, power on your phone and let it start completely
- Now you can start to install this ROM


Unlocked Bootloader:

1. Flash the Recommended Kernel: Vengeance , KTG Anzu , RUSH
2. Place ROM on SD card
3. Power off the phone and boot into CWM
3. Backup and restore > choose Backup
4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
5. Mounts and storage > Format /system
6. Advanced > Wipe battery stats

, credits to vashta for the guide



xLoud Fix For Walkman (Workaround)

1. Go to Settings > Developer options > Enable Kill app back button
2. Open Walkman and play any song
3. Press menu > Sound Enhancement > Choose your settings and tick the xLoud
4. Long press back button to kill Sound Enhancement
5. No more sound reduce now.. :good:



Walkman FC when tap on "My Music"

1. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Walkman > Clear Data
2. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Media Storage > Clear Data
3. Wait for 5-10 minutes so that media scanner can scan the whole SD Card, there might be a corrupt entry of any music file which is preventing Walkman from functioning properly



Cybershot 3D Camera FC

- Change another kernel like Vengeance



ROM is very laggy and slow

- Go to Settings > Developer options > Untick "Force GPU rendering"
- "Windows animation scale" & "Transition animation scale" set to .5x
- Install Script Manager > Open the app and navigate to /system/xbin > Run flush script (Remember to click the SU button)



What is the best kernel to use with this ROM?

Every user use their phone differently, some are heavy user who love to push their phone to the limit, and some are just normal user who use their phone for calling and messaging only.
Every different kernel fulfill different conditions for different kind of users, so I will not give you suggestion for the "BEST" kernel, personally I am using Rush Kernel for my Xperia Arc and it works perfectly without any problems, but my suggestion for you would be "TRY and FIND OUT by your own".. ;)



Will this ROM better than XXX ROM?

NEVER compare ROMs, it is a kind of disrespectful to the ROM creator. If you want to know which is better, try it yourself.



How to install OTA update?

1. Settings > Viper Xperia Advanced Settings > System updates
2. Under UPDATES, if there is an update available then you will be notified
3. Download the updates, after "Download Finished" was shown, reboot to Recovery
4. In Recovery, Install Zip from sdcard --> Choose Zip from sdcard ---> sdcard/OTA-Updater/ViperXperia_OTA_Vx.x.zip
5. Reboot and done



WiFi doesn't work after ROM install

Reflash Wifi modules downloaded from the kernel thread



The ROM is not rooted after updates

Download SuperSU binary installer (UPDATE-SuperSU-vx.xx.zip) HERE then flash it in Recovery



xLoud™, Clear Audio™ and Sound Enhancement didn't work

Change another kernel, some kernel has some issue with this, Rush kernel works fine



Google Play Store didn't show purchased apps

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Google Play Store > Clear data



Google Play Store unable to update apps with error

Remove your Google account > reboot > then sign in again to your account



I Installed Xperia Z Home with 4x5 drawer but it's still 4x4

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



Installed apps are missing in drawer for Xperia Z Home 4x4

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



Can this ROM install on locked bootloader?

Yes



Can this ROM install on XXX device?

This is for Xperia Arc,Arc S, Neo, Neo V, Pro & Ray ONLY



What is the Antutu/ benchmark score of this ROM?

I NEVER use Antutu or any other benchmark tools to determine the performance. Benchmark score can easily get cheated by overclocking, increasing memory read ahead or using different IO scheduler. I use my OWN observation to determine and experience how fast is the ROM.. remember BENCHMARK SCORE IS NOT EVERYTHING!!



How much free RAM in this ROM?

160MB and above, depends on how much background process are running, your Minfree setting and any task killer app installed. If you need more RAM, remove Xperia Home and install other launcher from Play Store, or just change you ROM to those BORING AOSP BASED ROM WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATION & MODS



Can I port this ROM or Advanced Settings to XXX device/ ROM?

Ask me by PM first before you trying to do so.. ;)



Can you add/remove XXX mods/themes into this ROM?

Well, I love suggestion but I hate request. The main objectives of my ROM is to give user the best experience with their phone in terms of graphic UI and also performance, there must be reason behind why I include or does not include XXX mods/themes into this ROM.



Changing lock screen wallpaper

Go to Settings > Display > Lockscreen settings > Wallpaper to set lockscreen wallpaper



MyXperia FC when I open it first time

MyXperia will FC 2 times:

- When first time clicking "Accept"
- Second time after the first FC occur
- Starting from third time it will no more FC

To prevent MyXperia FC on every reboot, turn it off in Settings > Xperia > MyXperia



Can't get your answer here?

Head over to Viper xperia Q&A thread and other member will help you to solve your problem

I didn't try it by my own.. maybe you can become my tester? ;)




Good Job!

How much is the Free RAM

Why need to compare free RAM when it is already fast enough? :p alright it's approximately 150MB



Alright I forgot something.. in V1.0 you won't find those Adanced settings like Dolby Mobile and Power Saver.. they will be available when V1.1 comes out, it will be an OTA update for V1.1 to test out my OTA service.. ETA? One or two days.. :)

Installing now, will report back, just one question, because I am using Serene Kernel and you didn't included modules for that kernel, I can flash modules for WiFi on top of it right?

    Xperia Arc is my second (spare) phone, my works are mainly focused on HTC Sensation. As a themer, I love to mod my phone to becomes unique and different with those generic phone. So here I present to you all my own themed ROM for Xperia Arc / Arc S. This is not just a THEMED STOCK ROM, thanks to all modders here I am able to combine all the goodness of their respective mods and hence produce this ROM.

    This is a daily ROM for my own Xperia Arc and I can say that it is stable enough for me to share with you guys, if you found any bugs feel free to inform me but PLEASE be appropriate and do not flame other members here, XDA is a peace community.. :)

    2. Open Walkman and play any song
    3. Press menu > Sound Enhancement > Choose your settings and tick the xLoud
    4. Long press back button to kill Sound Enhancement
    5. No more sound reduce now.. :good:



    Walkman FC when tap on "My Music"

    1. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Walkman > Clear Data
    2. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Media Storage > Clear Data
    3. Wait for 5-10 minutes so that media scanner can scan the whole SD Card, there might be a corrupt entry of any music file which is preventing Walkman from functioning properly



    Cybershot 3D Camera FC

    - Change another kernel like Vengeance



    ROM is very laggy and slow

    - Go to Settings > Developer options > Untick "Force GPU rendering"
    - "Windows animation scale" & "Transition animation scale" set to .5x
    - Install Script Manager > Open the app and navigate to /system/xbin > Run flush script (Remember to click the SU button)



    What is the best kernel to use with this ROM?

    Every user use their phone differently, some are heavy user who love to push their phone to the limit, and some are just normal user who use their phone for calling and messaging only.
    Every different kernel fulfill different conditions for different kind of users, so I will not give you suggestion for the "BEST" kernel, personally I am using Rush Kernel for my Xperia Arc and it works perfectly without any problems, but my suggestion for you would be "TRY and FIND OUT by your own".. ;)



    Will this ROM better than XXX ROM?

    NEVER compare ROMs, it is a kind of disrespectful to the ROM creator. If you want to know which is better, try it yourself.



    How to install OTA update?

    1. Settings > Viper Xperia Advanced Settings > System updates
    2. Under UPDATES, if there is an update available then you will be notified
    3. Download the updates, after "Download Finished" was shown, reboot to Recovery
    4. In Recovery, Install Zip from sdcard --> Choose Zip from sdcard ---> sdcard/OTA-Updater/ViperXperia_OTA_Vx.x.zip
    5. Reboot and done



    WiFi doesn't work after ROM install

    Reflash Wifi modules downloaded from the kernel thread



    The ROM is not rooted after updates

    Download SuperSU binary installer (UPDATE-SuperSU-vx.xx.zip) HERE then flash it in Recovery



    xLoud™, Clear Audio™ and Sound Enhancement didn't work

    Change another kernel, some kernel has some issue with this, Rush kernel works fine



    Google Play Store didn't show purchased apps

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Google Play Store > Clear data



    Google Play Store unable to update apps with error

    Remove your Google account > reboot > then sign in again to your account



    I Installed Xperia Z Home with 4x5 drawer but it's still 4x4

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



    Installed apps are missing in drawer for Xperia Z Home 4x4

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



    Can this ROM install on locked bootloader?

    Yes



    Can this ROM install on XXX device?

    This is for Xperia Arc,Arc S, Neo, Neo V, Pro & Ray ONLY



    What is the Antutu/ benchmark score of this ROM?

    I NEVER use Antutu or any other benchmark tools to determine the performance. Benchmark score can easily get cheated by overclocking, increasing memory read ahead or using different IO scheduler. I use my OWN observation to determine and experience how fast is the ROM.. remember BENCHMARK SCORE IS NOT EVERYTHING!!



    How much free RAM in this ROM?

    160MB and above, depends on how much background process are running, your Minfree setting and any task killer app installed. If you need more RAM, remove Xperia Home and install other launcher from Play Store, or just change you ROM to those BORING AOSP BASED ROM WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATION & MODS



    Can I port this ROM or Advanced Settings to XXX device/ ROM?

    Ask me by PM first before you trying to do so.. ;)



    Can you add/remove XXX mods/themes into this ROM?

    Well, I love suggestion but I hate request. The main objectives of my ROM is to give user the best experience with their phone in terms of graphic UI and also performance, there must be reason behind why I include or does not include XXX mods/themes into this ROM.



    Changing lock screen wallpaper

    Go to Settings > Display > Lockscreen settings > Wallpaper to set lockscreen wallpaper



    MyXperia FC when I open it first time

    MyXperia will FC 2 times:

    - When first time clicking "Accept"
    - Second time after the first FC occur
    - Starting from third time it will no more FC

    To prevent MyXperia FC on every reboot, turn it off in Settings > Xperia > MyXperia
