1) Download the rom and extract the zip package.
2) open up command prompt and type: "fastboot flash system XperiaSspeed.img"
3) the system should flash and you can reboot and use my rom :)



Wow!

The first ROM for our Xperia's U

I hope someone soon know how to unlock the bootloader

Thanks mate!

You can already unlock your bootloader ;) it's the first thread in Xperia S development :)

You can unlock a unlocked bootloader :p

But when you buy it from a carrier usually is blocked :(.Here in spain we got the mobile from a carrier almost free, so when you see someone from spain 99% he has a locked bootloader.

Thank you for your answer

Sony Xperia U Users Should Get Their Own Forum
Even Galaxy Y users Voted to Get it and They Go

Battery life?

See my mom has an Xperia U, she only uses it for calling and texting, she don't even have a Google Acc, but she's always complaining about the battery life (not very surprising since she had a nokia before! :D).

Is it worth rooting, and unlocking bootloader just to flash this for better battery?

New version is ready, uploading it now :D

btw who rates my Xperia Sola, P and U thread so low? I'm the only one making time for these new devices.
Please don't rate the threads low because progress is going slow, it's not easy to make a rom in system.img format, it takes a lot of time and I needed to learn some new things to make everything work

If you don't like my work just don't visit my threads and keep your rating for yourself, seeing bad rates can be anti motivating for some people

Hmmm.... Works ok, but when I try to slide to close notifications, the whole status bar force closes and requires a phone restart. Also can't seem to get the phone to appear in USB mode on my pc mtp driver error

    First of all, many thanks to krabappel2548 for bringing the custom rom and kernel to XU. I have rooted and using your kernel and rom. Awesome work and I'm sure you'll be bringing the next version of bug-fixed rom pretty soon. For now some temporary fixes can be used by us.

    For those experiencing GPS lock problem, I was experiencing the same problem; 9 fixes without any lock. Then I flashed gps country fix file which I have from my Toshiba Thrive, and problem solved. It locked within 3 mins. Just google "GPS country fix" and you'll find a lot of posts and threads on different forums. Just find the file containing server data for your country, and if it's flashable, flash it in CWM, or else copy gps.conf file to /system/etc and fix permissions. Turn on GPS, reboot, and then use GPS Status & Toolbox to erase previous AGPS data and download fresh one. Hopefully it will get a lock then. But before doing any of this, copy original gps.conf file somewhere just in case you want it back.

    For the swipe to remove notification problem, just flash the attached SwipeMod.zip file in CWM, wipe Dalvik cache and reboot. In case there is a problem, flash SwipeRecovery.zip to get back to original state. The mod contains framework.jar and SystemUI.apk originally by krabappel, but posted by ashwin prabhunerurkar in another post, so due credit to him for pointing to these files, and to krabappel for doing the original work. I obviously did not do any work here, just trying to help in some way.
