Hints and tips:

1. XPERIA S Launcher supports adw icon packs. Choose your pack from launcher preferences

3. You can also install QuickPic and use it as your default image viewer and use Wallpaper Wizardriii for croping portrait walls
4. To mount USB after applying layouts, you need to press image on screen... there's no button
5. ICS Theme version is 032-build-408
6. ICS Layouts version is 012
7. acpather v5.31 was used to patch apps and framework

9. A tutorial of how to create an ext4 mount script with link2sd is attached in this post
10. New (10.06.12) S98system_tweak for AE. For those already installed it, replace in system/etc/init.d and select full permissions. Thanks to mxxmxxm for pointing that out!

=================================================

Tested and working great
-- WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth, Torch, Proximity, Compass, BLN, 3G/2G Data
-- Battery life seems very good!

=================================================

Bugs and issues
-- If too many notices on status bar then will overlap centered clock
-- Even though Sansation font was created for multi-language support and complex writting, you may experience some weird characters FIXED
-- Sometimes when pressing search in Play Store or address bar on browser, app dissapears and only keyboard shows. If you start typing app will appear again
-- Low screen backlight when booting phone but brightness gets back to normal level after a few secs. It's a FireKernel issue and maybe this was done to save battery
-- On 16.06.12 update torch is working but not in status bar as a power widget.

Extras Section

1. iPhone Portrait Walls
2. more walls at my thread
3. Xperia S Theme for MDPI (both original and transparent - I tested that and looks very good)
4. XPERIA S Widgets (don't try the On-Off Tools cause some fuctions don't work. Weather widget is awesome.)
5. PDroid PATCH + RESTORE for APOCALYPSE by gbueno6
6. Show me your support. If you like this rom, just copy paste the following code in your signature
HTML:
[URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1700749"][IMG]http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc150/gorgopodaros/Untitled-2-6.png[/IMG][/URL]
7. XPERIA S Wallpapers
8. Cosmic Flow Live Wallpaper
9. CM7.2-RC3-APOCALYPSE-BAREBONE-12.06.12 mms, camera, real player and email are gone but beats+alsa+audiofx, torch and livewallpaperspicker are still on.
10. ICSApocalypse-Original Theme Still 90% transparent windows with blue frame/white glow but no transparency in all other aspects. You have to push it manually to system app and change permissions to rw-r--r--
11. Sansation-Regular Edited by itasoulas. This is the DroidSans.ttf font. To be used for those download rom prior to 12.06.12. Rename the file to DroidSans and replace the one in system\fonts, change permissions to rw-r--r-- and reboot. That should fix weird characters issue for most languages
12. To crop portrait walls search Google Play Store for "Crop Wallpaper" app. Does not run in background. Best ever
13. APOCALYPSE-19.06.12 + ICS Layouts ==> My personal mod of this rom ALL IN ONE .rar file

Installation Procedure - Step 1 (rom)
5. reboot and complete the setup wizard
NOTE 1: At this stage you probably won't see the status bar. Reboot again to show up
NOTE 2: No wallpaper is showing. Add one with Wallpaper Wizardrii

Installation Procedure - Step 3 (ICS Layouts)
1. Reboot into CWM5
2. mount system, flash Apocalypse Layouts-patch and reboot
NOTE: After phone boots, status bar is gone, theme is also changed. Don't worry
If you will not reboot at this step:
NOTE 1: At this stage you probably won't see the status bar. Reboot again to show up
there is no need to flash Apocalypse Layouts-undo, coz when you flash Apocalypse Layouts-patch and reboot status bar will be in its place.
Should I still flash Apocalypse Layouts-undo?
Why such a convoluted and not an exact guide?

Wow dude congrats! Btw in this rom, the latest fire kernel is included right? Do you see some flickering when choosing reboot in the power button? Im experiencing it on miracle v4, but im already downloading this now.

Ok...Achep for some reason suggest in his thread that the patch-undo-patch procedure must be done in order for layouts to be installed correctly. I don't know why but he's the one created the patcher. That seems to be true cause if you try to integrate the patched apps and framework-res into rom prior flashing you will always end up with a bootloop. Strange but that's the way it is.

Also the installation procedure is in 4 steps and must be done in that order. For example, after testing I found out (for some weird reason) that if you first do the layouts installation and then the AE installation, status bar is completely gone. Maybe it's the launcher that causes that problem.

Anyway, hope I answered correctly :p

    Hints and tips:

    1. XPERIA S Launcher supports adw icon packs. Choose your pack from launcher preferences
    2. Wallpaper Wizardriii is a cool app that lets you crop walls portrait or landscape way. Tweak it's setting for optimal performace
    3. You can also install QuickPic and use it as your default image viewer and use Wallpaper Wizardriii for croping portrait walls
    4. To mount USB after applying layouts, you need to press image on screen... there's no button
    5. ICS Theme version is 032-build-408
    6. ICS Layouts version is 012
    7. acpather v5.31 was used to patch apps and framework
    8. XPERIA S Home Launcher version is 0.9.1b
    9. A tutorial of how to create an ext4 mount script with link2sd is attached in this post
    10. New (10.06.12) S98system_tweak for AE. For those already installed it, replace in system/etc/init.d and select full permissions. Thanks to mxxmxxm for pointing that out!

    =================================================

    Tested and working great
    -- WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth, Torch, Proximity, Compass, BLN, 3G/2G Data
    -- Battery life seems very good!

    =================================================

    Bugs and issues
    -- If too many notices on status bar then will overlap centered clock
    -- Even though Sansation font was created for multi-language support and complex writting, you may experience some weird characters FIXED
    -- Sometimes when pressing search in Play Store or address bar on browser, app dissapears and only keyboard shows. If you start typing app will appear again
    -- Low screen backlight when booting phone but brightness gets back to normal level after a few secs. It's a FireKernel issue and maybe this was done to save battery
    -- On 16.06.12 update torch is working but not in status bar as a power widget.

    1. iPhone Portrait Walls
    2. more walls at my thread
    3. Xperia S Theme for MDPI (both original and transparent - I tested that and looks very good)
    4. XPERIA S Widgets (don't try the On-Off Tools cause some fuctions don't work. Weather widget is awesome.)
    5. PDroid PATCH + RESTORE for APOCALYPSE by gbueno6

    7. XPERIA S Wallpapers
    8. Cosmic Flow Live Wallpaper
    9. CM7.2-RC3-APOCALYPSE-BAREBONE-12.06.12 mms, camera, real player and email are gone but beats+alsa+audiofx, torch and livewallpaperspicker are still on.
    10. ICSApocalypse-Original Theme Still 90% transparent windows with blue frame/white glow but no transparency in all other aspects. You have to push it manually to system app and change permissions to rw-r--r--
    11. Sansation-Regular Edited by itasoulas. This is the DroidSans.ttf font. To be used for those download rom prior to 12.06.12. Rename the file to DroidSans and replace the one in system\fonts, change permissions to rw-r--r-- and reboot. That should fix weird characters issue for most languages
    12. To crop portrait walls search Google Play Store for "Crop Wallpaper" app. Does not run in background. Best ever
    13. APOCALYPSE-19.06.12 + ICS Layouts ==> My personal mod of this rom ALL IN ONE .rar file

    Ok. Cool down a bit, people.

    First thing - I've cleaned six pages of offtopic crap. It's the development thread for god's sake! :mad:

    I'm the moderator of four subforums, but also a developer of ROM for X8. We have about 20000 downloads of our work per month. Some comments in our development thread is a pure garbage because people don't know how to do basic things and report that as a bug. Battery life is one of the main subjects in our thread. Smartphones are like PC's - fast CPU, LCD display etc. that eats hell lot of energy - every app consumes additional amount - if you have 60+ apps, tweaks etc. don't complain about battery life.
    Want a good battery? Buy yourself an old Nokia :sarcastic:

    To be honest dropping support because of trolls/n00bs isn't a good idea. You can always PM me or TRusselo and I'll speak to them in the hard way.

    XDA is for developers and they will be always protected. If you disagree with this rule - just leave, otherwise moderators team would help you to do this.

    Developers are here to do some software, not to be a root of endless knowledge and private helpdesk.

    There is no democracy on XDA, you are not the most important person in the world.

    Read the XDA Mantra, then decide what if you want to be part of XDA.

    itasoulas - take your time buddy. We are here to help you.
