Xperia Z UI | Best Game Experience | Battery Friendly | Butter Smooth
semttulootm.png


Hi, I want to present you my first work for this forum. I made this rom just for personal use but i want to share it with you all because i think i won't lose anything with that. I focused this rom on performance but without losing a beautiful UI. GingerZed has a extreme smooth experience and Apps will open instantly even when the frequency is locked at 134 - 460Mhz. I removed a bunch of Apps like Calendar, Calculator, Panorama etc. If you want to use it i can make a extra pack, but I think it will ruin my concept of this ROM. For now i just released for Unlocked Bootloader Xperia Mini Pro but in a close future I'll make a version for booth bootloader and all Xperia MDPI.

How to Install
This was the only way i found to make ROM fully Work
  1. Install a GB kernel (Recommend Rage Kernel)
  2. Enter CWM
  3. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
  4. Wipe Cache Partition
  5. Monts and Storage -> Format System
  6. Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache
  7. select zip from sdcard -> Select GZ 1.1 - Build08 - Part01
  8. Wait for Installation to finish
  9. select zip from sdcard -> Select GZ 1.1 - Build08 - Part02
  10. Wait for Installation to finish and Reboot
The first boot take 1/2min, after that let the Rom settle down 5/6min before fully using it :good:

Bro I was waiting for a ROM like this!!
I'll try it as soon as possible, but first I would ask you some questions:

1. Does word suggestions work with the hw keyboard?
2. Does the camera have panorama mode?
3. How is the battery life?
4. Does all apps work without FCs?

Thank you.

I think an excellent proposal to adapt the xperia z as did the zelly cream for ice cream, I think it will be better in GingerBread, and it consumes less system resources, and is a faster, I know how much of battery care spending, and perhaps they give some suggestions as talves adapatar the ui, xperia z also the lockscreen

I hope this is the exception to many gb roms make faster but drains the battery very fast
thanks downloading and testing:good:

Thanks for download, please report what you think of the ROM after testing :good:

Thanks bro.
  1. The HW Keyboard works 100% with suggestions.
  2. Yes but camera isn't working ATM (making a fix).
  3. In other ROMs (ICS/JB) my XMP has to be recharged every 20 hours but with this ROM i recharged it every 2 days.
  4. Yes they do (expect camera/lockscreen for now).

Thanks for the comment and for the tip mate, I will do it ;)



Due to some problems in fixing the Camera and the Lockscreen I'll delay the Update to 1pm/13h (Portguese hour)
Don't know why but when i install fresh rom camera won't work, but it works from backup :confused:

Thanks mate, really appreciate it :good:

Bro can you port this rom for lww ?

I will, but first i want to solve all bugs for XPM bro.

If you didn't do it, plz add all elements of the last version of this mod:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2162275

Already included.

OP how did you overlock your phone to 1.9ghz? I can only overlock to 1.5ghz. Btw nice score in antutu.Wanna test your rom when my XMP come from repair.So best regards for my sk17i.

You can OC up to 2Ghz with Rage Kernel, just for benchmark's. I personally use 134-460Mhz in this ROM and it works perfectly, just have to increase a little when playing 3D games.

    Turn off the phone, flash the kernel, entrer recovery, wipe everything (factory reset, system, dalvik, battery stats), then mount USB storage on pc and delete "Android/data" and "DCIM/.thumbnails" folders; then unplug the phone, install rom's zip, install kernel modules zip and reboot.

    Hey ... Why do we need to delete android/data and DCIM/.thumbnails?
