HOW TO INSTALL VIPER XPERIA

*
Works with any ICS Kernel

1. Make sure you are on ICS .587 Build
2. Place ROM zip in SD card
3. Power off the phone and boot into CWM
3. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
4. Wipe Cache Partition
5. Mounts and storage > Format /system,Format /Data,Format /Cache
6. Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache & Wipe Battery Stats
7. Install zip from SD card > Choose Viper Xperia.zip
8. Follow on screen instructions on AROMA, remember to choose
correct "bootloader"
9. After complete installation Reboot from CWM
10. After the Rom boots up for the 1st time leave your phone for half an hour & give full charge
.

* To launch small app use Small App Launcher.
* If Music Tab gives you force close then Disable Devices.apk/SemcDlna.apk

* Reboot your Device atleast Once in a Day




On Screen Buttons

To Disable on screen buttons goto Settings > On Screen Buttons then press "Disable Navigation Bar" & Reboot. Same technique if you want to enable it


Lockscreen Change

To change lock screen you must first disable on screen buttons,If lockscreen doesn't change normally then go to Settings > Lockscreen Style & change to your desired. Then go to Settings > On Screen Buttons & disable it. Then again go to Lockscreen Style & change it.


3D Panorama Camera

Remember that 3D camera won't work if you are using MESA. So,it's not a problem with the Rom.


Kernel Module

Choose the correct kernel module in Aroma. If the module is included in Aroma for the kernel you are using & you chose it but wifi doesn't work,then re-boot the phone again cause modules sometimes need rebboting twice. If kernel module isn't included for the kernel you are using then don't select any module any Aroma. Flash it separately.




Walkman FC when tap on "My Music"

1. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Devices,force close it or Freeze it with Titanium Backup or Disable Serivce



ROM is very laggy and slow

- Go to Settings > Developer options > Untick "Force GPU rendering"
- "Windows animation scale" & "Transition animation scale" set to .5x
- Install Script Manager > Open the app and navigate to /system/xbin > Run flush script (Remember to click the SU button)



What is the best kernel to use with this ROM?

Every user use their phone differently, some are heavy user who love to push their phone to the limit, and some are just normal user who use their phone for calling and messaging only.
Every different kernel fulfill different conditions for different kind of users, so I will not give you suggestion for the "BEST" kernel, personally I am using MESA for my Xperia Live With Walkman and it works perfectly without any problems, but my suggestion for you would be "TRY and FIND OUT by your own".. ;)



Will this ROM better than XXX ROM?

NEVER compare ROMs, it is a kind of disrespectful to the ROM creator. If you want to know which is better, try it yourself.



How to install OTA update?

1. Settings > Viper Xperia Advanced Settings > System updates
2. Under UPDATES, if there is an update available then you will be notified
3. Download the updates, after "Download Finished" was shown, reboot to Recovery
4. In Recovery, Install Zip from sdcard --> Choose Zip from sdcard ---> sdcard/OTA-Updater/ViperXperia_OTA_Vx.x.zip
5. Reboot and done



WiFi doesn't work after ROM install

Reflash Wifi modules downloaded from the kernel thread



The ROM is not rooted after updates

Download SuperSU binary installer (UPDATE-SuperSU-vx.xx.zip) HERE then flash it in Recovery



xLoud™, Clear Audio™ and Sound Enhancement didn't work

Change another kernel, some kernel has some issue with this.



Google Play Store didn't show purchased apps

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Google Play Store > Clear data



Google Play Store unable to update apps with error

Remove your Google account > reboot > then sign in again to your account



I Installed Xperia Z Home with 4x5 drawer but it's still 4x4

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



Installed apps are missing in drawer for Xperia Z Home 4x4

Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



Can this ROM install on locked bootloader?

Yes



Can this ROM install on XXX device?

This is for Xperia Live With Walkman, Mini Pro, Mini & Active.



What is the Antutu/ benchmark score of this ROM?

I NEVER use Antutu or any other benchmark tools to determine the performance. Benchmark score can easily get cheated by overclocking, increasing memory read ahead or using different IO scheduler. I use my OWN observation to determine and experience how fast is the ROM.. remember BENCHMARK SCORE IS NOT EVERYTHING!!



How much free RAM in this ROM?

More free ram doesn't mean your device will run smooth, but if you askit's140MB and above, depends on how much background process are running, your Minfree setting and any task killer app installed. If you need more RAM, remove Xperia Home and install other launcher from Play Store, or just change you ROM to those BORING AOSP BASED ROM WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATION & MODS

Great job as always :) you sure do like porting, don't you?:p
Haven't used this yet but when I read features and instruction there's sth really confused me.
Why would it need to include WiFi module of MESA and Lupus as it already integrated to ramdisk? Did I mistake sth bro:confused:

Saqib, you done it! I'm sticking with this ROM! I have nothing more to ask, this is everything I needed and more then I wanted! I use it from last night and everything is working good, ROM is decently fast, but more important - it's very stable. In Aroma there is too much to choose :), it's hard to decide when you have so many nice options, but, I managed to find my combination for now :). This morning I changed font to Ubuntu and I fell in love :).

Oh, yes, I flashed Mesa v4 hybrid kernel and choose in Aroma: Mesa modules, and even with that mistake I made, wi-fi works normal :). If I experience problems because of this wrong step, I'll just reinstall it without selecting Mesa modules.

I'll be back with more feedback. Thanks for wonderful ROM!

Great Job!

Congratulation on this port.. almost 90% of my ROM was ported perfectly.. and I love your provided screenshot, nice and interesting.. :good:

Some suggestions for you:

- For the ROM download you may add some description on the zip name like Viper Xperia_mdpi_V3.5 to avoid conflict with my hdpi version
- The switch toggle .9png are corrupted in your screenshots, did you plan to fix this? :D

Keep it up.. :)

both lupus v5 and mesa v4 have wifi modules integrated in kernel, it's a bit confusing now how one would proceed with installing this rom with either of those kernels in place... :confused:

Kernel modules are just an option in Aroma,it's not included in the Rom. If you think smartly then you can find out if kernel module or it's version which you are using doesn't match with the modules included in the Aroma just don't select any of them in Aroma. Simple :)

Do you need to choose Xperia Widgets if you have chosen Xperia Advanced Home in aroma? Because I know (and it is written) that it works with each own Widgets...

    HOW TO INSTALL VIPER XPERIA

    *
    Works with any ICS Kernel

    1. Make sure you are on ICS .587 Build
    2. Place ROM zip in SD card
    3. Power off the phone and boot into CWM
    3. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
    4. Wipe Cache Partition
    5. Mounts and storage > Format /system,Format /Data,Format /Cache
    6. Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache & Wipe Battery Stats
    7. Install zip from SD card > Choose Viper Xperia.zip
    8. Follow on screen instructions on AROMA, remember to choose
    correct "bootloader"
    9. After complete installation Reboot from CWM
    10. After the Rom boots up for the 1st time leave your phone for half an hour & give full charge
    .

    * To launch small app use Small App Launcher.
    * If Music Tab gives you force close then Disable Devices.apk/SemcDlna.apk

    * Reboot your Device atleast Once in a Day




    On Screen Buttons

    To Disable on screen buttons goto Settings > On Screen Buttons then press "Disable Navigation Bar" & Reboot. Same technique if you want to enable it


    Lockscreen Change

    To change lock screen you must first disable on screen buttons,If lockscreen doesn't change normally then go to Settings > Lockscreen Style & change to your desired. Then go to Settings > On Screen Buttons & disable it. Then again go to Lockscreen Style & change it.


    3D Panorama Camera

    Remember that 3D camera won't work if you are using MESA. So,it's not a problem with the Rom.


    Kernel Module

    Choose the correct kernel module in Aroma. If the module is included in Aroma for the kernel you are using & you chose it but wifi doesn't work,then re-boot the phone again cause modules sometimes need rebboting twice. If kernel module isn't included for the kernel you are using then don't select any module any Aroma. Flash it separately.




    Walkman FC when tap on "My Music"

    1. Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Devices,force close it or Freeze it with Titanium Backup or Disable Serivce



    ROM is very laggy and slow

    - Go to Settings > Developer options > Untick "Force GPU rendering"
    - "Windows animation scale" & "Transition animation scale" set to .5x
    - Install Script Manager > Open the app and navigate to /system/xbin > Run flush script (Remember to click the SU button)



    What is the best kernel to use with this ROM?

    Every user use their phone differently, some are heavy user who love to push their phone to the limit, and some are just normal user who use their phone for calling and messaging only.
    Every different kernel fulfill different conditions for different kind of users, so I will not give you suggestion for the "BEST" kernel, personally I am using MESA for my Xperia Live With Walkman and it works perfectly without any problems, but my suggestion for you would be "TRY and FIND OUT by your own".. ;)



    Will this ROM better than XXX ROM?

    NEVER compare ROMs, it is a kind of disrespectful to the ROM creator. If you want to know which is better, try it yourself.



    How to install OTA update?

    1. Settings > Viper Xperia Advanced Settings > System updates
    2. Under UPDATES, if there is an update available then you will be notified
    3. Download the updates, after "Download Finished" was shown, reboot to Recovery
    4. In Recovery, Install Zip from sdcard --> Choose Zip from sdcard ---> sdcard/OTA-Updater/ViperXperia_OTA_Vx.x.zip
    5. Reboot and done



    WiFi doesn't work after ROM install

    Reflash Wifi modules downloaded from the kernel thread



    The ROM is not rooted after updates

    Download SuperSU binary installer (UPDATE-SuperSU-vx.xx.zip) HERE then flash it in Recovery



    xLoud™, Clear Audio™ and Sound Enhancement didn't work

    Change another kernel, some kernel has some issue with this.



    Google Play Store didn't show purchased apps

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Google Play Store > Clear data



    Google Play Store unable to update apps with error

    Remove your Google account > reboot > then sign in again to your account



    I Installed Xperia Z Home with 4x5 drawer but it's still 4x4

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



    Installed apps are missing in drawer for Xperia Z Home 4x4

    Go to Settings > Apps > "ALL" tab > Xperia Home > Clear data



    Can this ROM install on locked bootloader?

    Yes



    Can this ROM install on XXX device?

    This is for Xperia Live With Walkman, Mini Pro, Mini & Active.



    What is the Antutu/ benchmark score of this ROM?

    I NEVER use Antutu or any other benchmark tools to determine the performance. Benchmark score can easily get cheated by overclocking, increasing memory read ahead or using different IO scheduler. I use my OWN observation to determine and experience how fast is the ROM.. remember BENCHMARK SCORE IS NOT EVERYTHING!!



    How much free RAM in this ROM?

    More free ram doesn't mean your device will run smooth, but if you askit's140MB and above, depends on how much background process are running, your Minfree setting and any task killer app installed. If you need more RAM, remove Xperia Home and install other launcher from Play Store, or just change you ROM to those BORING AOSP BASED ROM WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATION & MODS

    Viper Xperia V8 Screenshots :D

    Sorry guys for a little delay, but don't blame me. Blame my crap internet connection's upload speed. Still showing 3 hrs left. I don't know if I am gonna wake up till it finishes cause it's already 2:00 AM here. So I decided to share some screenshots from the new release :fingers-crossed: I will give the download link as early as possible

    Screenshots From Viper Xperia V8

    Update News

    I have finished everything :) Uploading Viper Xperia V5.5. Should be available tomorrow/12 hrs from now. Couldn't make work Serajr's latest 9.1 SystemUI with fresh installing with this rom because of Privacy Control. So I am sticking with 8.1,though there's no change in systemUI between this two version,just changes in SystemUIPreferences. I also added camera button to play/pause music feature when screen is off. Removed Per app dpi cause It was conflicting with supercharger a bit. Also removed Power Saver app from settings :) So re-fill your fuel to drive the new viper :highfive:
