Firstly, I want to say hi, as I'm new in this XDA section, was being a long time in X10, Play and Neo L development, but now it's time to say knock knock here, so welcome everybody, my name is Damian and please, let me introduce my project for Xperia J :).

If you want to see how much I've made check my signature and find my website or look in all my projects post inside XDA :p.

Credits goes to Sony, gavster26 and DooMLoRD :).

'Rare' is single project for Xperia J, as this is my new daily device after Xperia X10, so I wanted to make something I like on new device, that's why I'm bringing you this :D.

  • DiXperia 'Rare' is my ROM based on official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
  • Most of features are written below, so start reading this big thread! Hope you still want do that, and use my ROM :fingers-crossed:.


rxq8.png

  • Based on JB 4.1.2, with Sony Xperia apps and framework.
  • Create Yourself ™ - my own idea. You've seen this in all DiXperias - it's something like "you choose stuff and version you like, and if you need something, you just apply this like extra file. No need to delete tons of apps you don't using and won't" - it's simple, fast, and has potential :).
  • Playstation Certificate.
  • Walkman player.
  • Changing music via lockscreen.
  • Facebook.
  • Xperia swype keyboard.
  • Scripts, tricks, tweaks - they promise lot of fun, lot of performance and lot of stability ^^.
  • I think it's enough but you know it's not everything - I'm sure I missed a lot of features, but it's up to you to test it yourself if you really want to using this ROM.

Just come and get it in second post :).

  • Of course Root + Busybox.
  • Bootloade can be locked or unlocked, but prefer UL, as it's easier to change Kernels etc..
  • Required Kernel.
  • CWM Recovery.


yka3.png

  • Download ROM (+ optional addons) and put it on your SD Card.
  • In fastboot mode flash 1_DX_CWM.img file (download below).
  • Go to CWM Recovery and make Full Wipe and Wipe Cache, then clean your Dalvik, fix Battery and Fix Permissions. (if needed, make /system format too)
  • Choose .zip to flash and select my ROM. Wait...
  • Done! Reboot and pull out battery, give few second, then put on battery again.
  • Next go to fastboot mode again and flash kernel.sin (download below) and turn on device.
  • Feel free to use it! :D

==> Important <==
Don't want make mess here, so just go and read Suggestions, cause there are some nice advices to get DXR working like it should (we need change some settings after flashing and booting ROM :)).

Post #4 explains everything :D.

Golden-Suggestion -> If you like my work and you are using it right now, please glorify it on your signature with this graphic:

And:
- Don't use any backup! (it doesn't mean you must delete yours, but be sure that it can create some problems. If you replace backup and everything is cool - that's cool! :D)
- After flash my system give it 1 day for better stability and the second one for applicate all scripts/tweaks/tricks.
- Simple, but no one understand it. If you want to have better battery life just decrase brightness.
- In my opinion, smartassV2 or interactiveX (choose yourself), and frequency of CPU from ~0.3GHz to ~1.3GHz gives awesome stability and performance :).
- In Dev Settings, delete three types of animations.
- Use 2D render in Dev Settings.

I own it, but it my new daily device and I didn't plan to make big mess around here, just provide one good Stock based ROM, as my daily smartphone need to be fast, stable and good looking :).
Also, soon I will leave XDA for some time, as I've already made too much last time here, so I need some vacations :D. And yeeeah, school starts in week :p.

IDSG, sorry I'm new in XJ section and when I got that device first thing I've made was full unlock of it, so didn't know there isn't option of flashing .sin file on LBL. But still, if there's possibility, you can flash it via FlashTool in fastboot mode :>.

Aeron sagar, OH MY GOD that's sooo nice information you've followed my old closed blog, and also times when I had only X10 and started all Devs works....Jeeez, few years, wooohoo :D. Even times when my work wasn't only official and legal xD. Thank you buddy ^^.

nevadasaga, something like that :>.

So this rom is only for unlocked bootloader i guess, or maybe there's another way i dont know, this is my first Sony android phone (last one was a W810i)

BTW, gavster modified a ftf file that have only stock 4.1.2 kernel, you can ask him

Using this rom. Nice one for Xperia J (31). Everything smooth and perfect.

Launcher is not good one (My Choice!).

Can I change the lockscreen wallpaper?

If possible make an update to system ui...!

Sorry for the expectation and a huge thanks this lite rom.

    mjonyh, lockscreen wallpaper change -> settings then display then lockscreem then wallpaper :p.
    About SystemUI update - what do you mean? Isn't it good enough? For me it's nice :>.

    przemek4113, I'm still new here, but please go here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2134810 and download 1.43 version which still has OC like I see in OP.

    hacker0377, thanks dude, like I said I won't make big work here, J is good enough device and need only scripts to make it better, I don't want to make toasts every morning by my device :D.
