Wow!

Hey, great work, would try it immediately, if I wouldn't have to test a rom! Will report my experience with it soon, if we should report!

P.S.: From which xperia have you ported this firmware? Neo? And how is the battery life?

    2. wipe cache partition
    3. go to mounts and storage menu
    4. format /system
    5. format /data

    Try to flash this, this is another Gpu driver for our device
    Tested it and the result is better than stock and JB driver
