Known Issues

  • Enabling 3G and mobile data results in a moderate battery drain even during sleep.

Troubleshooting

  • If you experience lags or slowdowns after updating to a new version, 'Wipe Dalvik Cache' in CWM -> Advanced.
  • If you use Link2SD, make sure to 'Recreate Mount Script'.
  • If you use DarkTremor's Apps2SD, make sure to reflash it in CWM.

Installation

  1. Copy update zip to SD card.
  2. Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
  3. (RECOMMENDED) Make a Backup.
  4. If you want a clean install of the main ROM, do a factory reset. Otherwise, skip this step.
  5. Flash zip package(s) (always flash main ROM first).
  6. Reboot.

I normally use zepellinrox supercharger v6, will the tweaks you have added conflict? I'll try later on or tomorrow and post any feedback. The only request I would put is for an integrated 7-screen home, I normally flash this but it saves time... Thanks for the work anyway.

It won't conflict. As for the home screen, I'll keep the stock version. If I change the apk to something else, then it wouldn't be stock anymore. Thanks for testing.

No installation problems, but fast first boot.
Looking forward to se what influence this ROM might have on battery drain.
Only one more thing, I still use the DooMKernel v12 with modded CWM.

I'll be back to morrow after a fully test day.

Impressive, I always wanted to have such a lite version, ( maybe even with Stock launcher when ICS came, unless SE comes with something interesting !! )

but sadly I have locked bootloader and does not want to unlock it now, maybe later after 1 year when SE stops updates or when no root is possible without unlocking the bootloader...


so what can I remove from preloaded apps to have such lite se stock ? I really loved the internal storage free !! I feel like I'm seeing a faked or dream :D

I already have .42 rooted and Titanium Backup, and already removed some pre-installed apps like News & Weather and golf game etc.. but I didn't remove any SE widgets and kept some other SE apps not for a reason.. just I saw them too small to worry about...

so can we have a list of removed apps/widgets and what you kept ?

I didn't write them down but I'll try to list to the best I can:

Removed
- Timescape
- Facebook integration services
- McAfee
- UEFA and Hot Shots
- Hidden services (SecureClock etc.)
- SEMC Email
- LiveWare Manager

Kept
- Almost every other widgets and apps

Those screenshots of the app drawer might help ;)

    arconium 7.0 beta 3

    Keep in mind that this is a test build. Anything can happen, from an exploding phone to a flying chicken. Only flash if you know what you're doing.

    Make a CWM backup before flashing.

    update-arconium-7.0b3.zip (108 MB) Works on both LT15 (arc) and LT18 (arc S).
    update-arconium-FBInside_Timescape-v5.zip (5.99 MB / 4 Feb) Do not flash v4 with 7.0 betas, use this one instead.

    Beta 3 (9 Feb)
    • Moved SIM Toolkit back to data (uninstallable).
    • Moved SEMCSetupWizard.apk back to system. Probably fixes the Home button issue.
    • Tweaks are redone.
    • BusyBox v1.19.3 now loads properly.
    • Updated Superuser binary to 3.0.3.2.

    Beta 2 (4 Feb)
    • Updated Superuser binary.
    • Updated BusyBox to v1.19.3.
    • Updated Street View.
    • Readded ANT support.
    • Moved SIM Toolkit to /system partition.

    Beta 1 (4 Feb)
    • ~215 MB free memory on clean install.
    • Removed "Power save mode". It's pretty useless.
    • Removed "Data monitor". Very inaccurate, grab one from the Market instead, like 3G Watchdog.
    • Removed ANT support. Tell me if any of you even use it.
    • Removed various apk and DRM related stuff.
    • More lenient tweaks. Should not cause any negative effects on performance anymore, especially after long usage.
    • Moved "SEMCSetupWizard.apk" to /data/. Make sure to uninstall it after first boot because it eats useful RAM.
    • Updated the following:
      • Facebook.
      • Google Quick Search Box.
      • Maps.
      • Superuser.
      • Adobe Flash Player.
      • YouTube.
    • Moved some more EventStream components into FB Inside / Timescape package.
    Maybe some other stuff I don't remember.

    People like me still love gb...no matter wat ics and jb has , it won't be able to deliver the performance like gb...,I mean wat else we need? We have quicktoggles, swipe to remove notification, battery %, kill app by back button, 5x4 drawer,nxt lockscreen, home pref, tiny apps, new launcher, xperia z apps, xperia z framework, adreno drivers, 230+ free ram, hell lot of games, blah blah blah and still an unmatched performance....GB is the best,,, devs should cook more n more gb based roms.....
