When flashing the rom and you are still in AROMA installer the process of "extracting system" seem to stuck at 20% mark just wait
When chosing custom installation make sure to select one home application!

This are the app that come with the lite installation (minus Google NOW):

Google or Sony style? You decide!

When using the stock kernel option, on boot, after the SONY logo, the phone keeps rebooting with 4 red leds flash (android logo freeze and then reboots)... Reinstalled using androplus and it seems to be booting. I'll report more later!

I suppose you are on a E5823 and follow the install instruction right?
Could you give some more info, like wich device you have and wich option you chose on the installer?
In my test i couldn't replicate this behaviour.

I can confirm, something went wrong with the stock kernel, please use AndroPlus.
I'll update the OP while i try to fix the problem.

there seems to be an issue if PIN code for SIM card is enabled.

I popped my SIM in to my old S5 and turned of PIN code, and it worked just fine :)

Yeah, it booted. Working extremely nice now! First time I've managed to get 86k on antutu. Thanks a lot!

There's another bug when using that xperia X lockscreen. When you activate the home screen double tap to sleep and you double tap to sleep, and when you use your fingerprint to unlock, it asks for you to put the PIN Code anyway.

Maybe maniac95 had the same problem you reported, i will look into it.

That's the launcher "limitation" :cool:
This beta version of the launcher from Ben Ling fixes it

@JTdevAndroid Can you please provide some Screenshots from the difference of the extra features?

I'm using the rom the entire day and I have only a problem that the app tomtom go can't connect to their servers. I will check the connection at home.

Thanks for giving us the first rom for this device. [emoji106]

Hi I found another bug. I'm using the German version of the firmware.

The bug is, if I'm using a headphone, and play music and increase the sound level I got the following dialog. In Stock rom I can see the text.

Found the source of the problem if the SIM PIN is enabled:
is the Xperia X SystemUI that is causing it.
I didn't noticed at all because i had the PIN disabled on my SIM card.
The only dumb solution i know at the moment is to disable the SIM PIN.
@Raz0Rfail:
i bet you are using the Xperia X System UI :D any other works fine
I will put some screenshoots of the rom when i have some time.

Just flashed the stock kernel 2 min. ago.
working fine for me too:)

thanks for the feedback, i'll update the OP

@JTdevAndroid
You are right with the Xperia X SystemUI.
I'm using the NStyle and it works nice.

The last thing I found is the using of the Rom heats up the phone. But this problem has the phone in every stock rom from LP to MM.

    Hi,

    I take that JTdevAndroid has stopped working on this?
