This ext4 partition is for apps or for cache? An if for apps there is still need to use link2sd or u changed partitions so its seen as internal memory?

And one more question: Do i need to be on neo l ics fw or .62 vendor unlocked and newer play gb fws are good?

ok will try it. Now i need to clean sdcard and repartition it.

Did you (or anyon eother, but noone is talking here) tried something like link2sd? It will probably try to use "cache" partition as its, so its pretty unusefull i think (?)

---------- Post added at 10:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:39 PM ----------

SO after 15 minutes if use (and additional 15 minutes to ler it do the magic in the begginingI i see that automatic brigteness doesnt work and flashlight breaks everything - i mean screen gots dark and i cant do nothing except take out battery

EDIT: U said that this 1.5 gb is for cache, however i see that its used as internal storage (so its data), that mean that it can be how i think: internal memory is split for system and cache and data partition is moved to sdcard?

the rom at this point its enough for daily usage..when mike wants to take over or create a new thread i will close this one and put a link to his thread..for now its just to have all users in the same space as your q&a thread was created on early buildings..alpha..this now is like BETA stage..from my tests its a decent rom in this stage..i will try to fix touchpads if i can and if have time..nowadays i dont use xperia play anymore..im developing for other devices and this days xperia play unfortunely is more than outdated..i find myself struggling to get something more of this amazing device..i wish SONY could make a xperia play 2..but that is another thing..and people dont sign my petition , dont know why..almost a year and only 50 signatures..xperia play users are a bit ungrateful with developers..i know that now..thats why many developers leave from here and now its finally my turn to say goodbye..now and then i will be here to see my threads but anytime soon this subforum maybe will go to low legacy devices.:(

One thing I want to know: is the recovery still CM Recovery, and is it still not capable of flashing packages other than ROM and GAPPS?

Can we bot Kitkat by using this kernel

just asking out of curiosity...can i boot kitkat(4.4.4) by using kernel of CM12
PS :- I tried to boot kitkat by using this kernel however it booted but was stucked in CM logo :(....wouldn't it be great to get camera working in Kitkat and also there is no lag problem in KITKAT rom.
Btw, Smokerman Hats off to ur effort, its truly appreciated by every NEO L user :)

Cool!

I have a question.

How is this ROM running games?

Thanks

...and if you mean the speed, from my experience running PPSSPP, it's actually faster than CM11 in frame rate (for strange reason - CM11 stutters in even the simplest PSP game), though still not up to par with the good'ol ICS.

Hello XDA community! while I'm not forum Xperia Play, and recently between seeing as ive developing new rom's and I found this, and to save time to read all the post, wanted to know how things are going in general? .
Games?
Gamepad support? analogues?
3G - WIFI - Bluetooth - SMS?
stability and compatibility with applications?
if someone would be so kind you've tried the latest build and I can answer these questions.
thanks in advance :)

    ok. 1.5gb is a lot, i really thought that art needs 400-500mb...

    as i say you can try 1GB and swap 128..or other values that you see its working..video is generic,should work with other sizes, but at least 1GB i think you are fine.;)
