Update incoming!!!

Since adding tweaks to the ROM causes so many problems, the new update would have no tweaks other than build.prop tweaks. Anyone who wants any tweaks can flash it themselves after flashing the ROM. That way each person can use their own favourite tweaks.

Changelog for new update:
Smaller lockscreen clockfont (looks more like CM11)
All fonts changed to Bauhaus (including Italic, Bold, etc...)
Changed busybox - no more problems with busybox
Updated Viper4Android

Because all tweaks (PurePerformanceX for example) is now removed from the ROM, it should be completely stable: no more force closes, no more memory leaks

LINKS ARE UP SOON!!

Just one word: Memory leaks also appear in Xboost.

There ROM *should* be stable now.
About the memory leak issue: Try Supercharger V6. When it asks you to set the minfree values, use the 512 HP; agressive settings. Also, with the Flush Engine (included in Supercharger V6), set it to flush every 0.1 hour (s) (6 minutes).

To ensure the smoothness of this ROM, Google Play Services is not included.
However, this means that newer version of Google Apps will not work. Older versions of those apps, still work nonetheless.
I have uploaded older version of some Google apps I've tested and seems to work best with Nexboost specifically.

Right now on my list:

  • Gmail 4.8
  • YouTube 4.1.47 HD Mod
  • Maps 6.14
  • News and Weather 1.3
  • Google Play Music 4.3.609.436083
You can download these in the download section: http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/?id=5474#downloads

Anyone who have any requests or suggestion for any other Google apps, please post it here.

So I have been wondering: This ROM has been slimmed down to the maximum possible level. In fact, it's been debloated to the point there's almost absolutely nothing Sony-stock in the ROM. Yet, the ROM is still isn't as fast as AOSP/Cyanogenmod ROMs, regardless of the tweaks applied.

My question is: What is the difference between AOSP ROM and the Stock-sony ROM? There's definitely something else that Sony has added to slow down ICS, other than just the Xperia-framework and the bloatware, because all of that has been removed and this ROM is still isn't as fast as AOSP.

Any ideas????:confused::confused::confused::confused:

Yeah but I need it to be even faster...CM10 can run games smoothly with Google Play Services running in background. So theres definitely something we can do to make this ROM as fast as AOSP

In CM10 memory options I see these:
- zRAM compression
- Allow purging of assets
- Kernel sample merging (KSM)
They reduce memory consumption, and maybe helpful on ICS.

KSM is enabled through supercharger v6, zRAM would actually slow everything down.

Purging of assets: I dont know how to enable that. I added the line in build.prop that supposedly enable purging of assets, but feels no different. It must be more complicated than just adding a line into build.prop

    Nexboost ROM - Unofficial Cyanogenmod alternative

    Kernel sources can be found in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-j-e/development/e-poseidon-ics-kernel-t2686028

    CAUTION: GLTOOLS WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS ROM, OR ANY ICS BASED ROM FOR THAT MATTER. IT'LL WORK AT FIRST, BUT OVER TIME IT WILL CAUSE APPS TO CRASH, AND MESS UP YOUR CAMERA DRIVER.

    CAUTION #2: WHEN YOU FINISH FLASHING, CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY MIGHT SAY SOMETHING LIKE "Rom might attempt to flash stock recovery on reboot. Disable recovery flash?". YOU MUST PICK NO. IF YOU PICK YES, NONE OF THE PUREPERFORMANCE TWEAKS WILL WORK.

    To ensure the smoothness of this ROM, Google Play Services is not included.
    However, this means that newer version of Google Apps will not work. Older versions of those apps, still work nonetheless.

    SCREENSHOT LINK: http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/?id=5474#screenshots

    Do a full wipe when you flash a newer version of the ROM (wipe data, cache, dalvik cache, and system). The reason for this is, most of the updates involve messing with system files. So it would be safer to just to a clean wipe before you flash a newer version.


    Features:

    • CM11 Look - Kitkat themed framework
    • Pre-rooted with latest SuperSU and su binary
    • Updated Busybox installed
    • Debloated Extremely - only 50 apps left /system/app/ - and that's with Gapps included
    • Init.d support
    • 1.5 GHz OC - thanks @UltraGamerHD
      [*]PurePerformance X Golden Edition - thanks @Jeeko Removed for stability!
    • AOSP Message app
    • CM11 Calculator
    • AOSP Browser
    • Apollo Music Player like in CM11
    • AOSP Contacts and Dialer
    • CM9 LatinIME
    • Apex Launcher as default launcher
    • AOSP Lockscreen
    • Custom font
    • AOSP 4.2 Camera and Gallery
    • Nexus 4 themed Clock Widget
    • QuickPic
    • Cyanogenmod File Manager
    • Newest Play Store - v4.9.13
    • Google Play Services NO GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES! BLOCKED INSTALLATION PERMENENTLY!

    BUGS:

    I honestly don't know how to fix these bugs. I would if I could.

    - Battery percentage is weird at times (goes up and down). Battery life is ok, though. There seems to be a problem with the Poseidon Kernel causing this. Hope @UltraGamerHD will fix it sometime in the future.

    - A lot of people ask about the stock Xperia Themes. Well, they don't work. I already changed .pngs files in various apks causing the themes to no longer work.

    - Some apps force closes at times (Whatsapps, Gmail, Browser,etc..). Clearing the apps data, they'll work again.




    Credits:
    Other people who helped: @DanielFlorin - helped me a lot with some of the features in this ROM @iPlasm - HTC HD Mini CM9 dev - I got some of my apks and pngs from his rom
    TamsuiCM and Cyanogenmod team - I took a lot of pngs from CM11 of course @Xmoose - for his rom xboost
    And many other people who helped indirectly.... @Gerr_kpo - Tipo dev for his Performa V5 - took a lot of his pngs in his ROM as well @serajr, @djedjy and @anurox2 - For CM11-like SystemUI
    .... I can't include everyone because I got my resources from so many places. So to all those people I haven't thanked: Thank you very much. You all contributed one way or another.

    Size of ROM: 170 MB - The size of a CM9 nightly. Slimmed down Gapps included. So it's basically CM-sized. (In fact, it's even lighter than CM11 Alpha 6.1).

    Instructions:
    1. Flash 11.0.A.6.8 firmware (4.0.4 ftf)
    2. Flash Poseidon Kernel
    3. Boot into CWM
    4. Wipe data, cache, dalvik cache
    5. Format system
    6. Flash the ROM, enjoy your Sony Xperia Nexus

    NOTE (MUST READ):
    On first boot, before doing anything, adjust the time on your phone to the correct date and time, time zone. Otherwise Play Store won't download.

    This rom is very slim. So it might not have some of the stuff you use (Voice Search, Sim Toolkit,etc...). I'll upload a zip of the removed apps later.


    Tips:



    - Download "Disable Services" from Play Store to well...disable services. Anything you don't use - disable it.

    - Use old version of apps. The new version of Facebook for example, takes up 50 MB of space and 80 MB of RAM. Use Facebook 3.4, takes up only 35 MB of RAM and 30 MB of space. Another example is Google Maps. The new version is clunky, laggy. Use the old Google Maps with the Locales app and the ICS-like UI. Much smoother.

    - Greenify everything except for apps that you need to run in background.

    - Whenever your apps start force closing and media won't scan, go to CWM -> Advanced -> Fix permissions

    The ROM is almost no longer based on Xboost. Most of the system files in the base ROM have been replaced with files from @DanielFlorin deodex package

    - Viper4Android FX added
    - updated Busybox
    - updated SuperSU and SU binary
    - updated QuickPic
    - updated CM11 calculator

    Purity:
    - Smaller lockscreen clockfont (looks more like CM11)
    - All fonts changed to Bauhaus (including Italic, Bold, etc...)
    - Changed busybox - no more problems with busybox
    - Updated Viper4Android
    - Removed all tweaks. The ROM should be stable now






    You can do whatever you want with this rom (use it as a base rom, mirror it, etc...). Just give me proper credits. Worked so hard on it.
    This is my first ROM. So feel free to leave suggestion, comments, insults, etc... Honesty is appreciated.

    Battery Issue is due to over clock, set Max to 1GHz and you won't get no bug. This is because its not meant to run at 1.5GHz also the battery and software is calibrated differently. Hence the Battery Issue.

    There is this mod about tabbed SystemUI-http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-j-e/themes-apps/port-xperia-systemui-23-jb-toggles-t2212272 it its mentioned in the official thread. You might wanna check it out.

    About themes you could put in basic color theming like in Stock ROMs.

    Thanks. By the way, theming is broken because I changed the pngs in framework-res.apk and SemcGenericUxpRes.apk.

    EDIT: Tried the tabbed tiled system UI you linked. Works great. Pulling down is buttery smooth. Now I need to theme it to look like CM11.
