Hi. I'm currently using an xperia e ss. This rom is blazing fast. Unfortunately, as some users have reported, there are certain bugs in this rom: screwed up camera, no sound, walkman crash, etc... that occur after a period of time for unknown reasons. Xmoose and UltraGamerHD said this is due to conflict with Poseidon kernel. However, i would like to confirm that this is not caused by Poseidon kernel, as i used this rom without flashing poseidon and still came across the problems.
I tried as hard as i could to recreate the bug, but i failed.

Any ideas why problems occur in this rom? To my understanding, this should not have happened since this is stock ics, hence any problems would be weird.

This rom is the the first to be released on the E dual, so its bound to have bugs as does any os or software had on/in its first release. When updated to Jelly Bean theese bugs are fixed.

GitHub says they haven't... no idea.

A little bit off-topic: Do you think a CM9 rom should be made for our devices? It would be even faster than Xboost, probably the fastest rom ever for Xperia E. If things turn out well, we may have the best of both worlds: Speed of CM, without annoying CM bugs like battery, video recording and GSM loss.

I remember asking somebody if it were possible, and I remember vividly that he/she said it wasn't...

Mods Xboost

I've been using many roms for our xperia E from a long a time....
According To me Xboost is the best lagfree and Bugfree Rom for our Devices.
But there are not many systemui and ports available for xboost
though theming ics is easy(dunno, read in this thread)
So if U could port Xperia Z1 or Z2
systemui,
phonebook ,
phone.apk,
framework
white themed I mean
for Xboost
plzzz help,
or just point me if der are ports working in xboost and Maybe I've not seen dem

The network bug is just some misunderstanding. Turns out that the guys that got the network bug and battery bug forgot to flash ICS firmware before flashing the base rom, they flash it on top of jellybean. If you flash ics 11.0.A.6.8 ftf before flashing the rom, everything is fine. Xboost is bug less. By the way, don't install "GLTools" apps when using this rom, or any ICS based rom. It'll cause problems. Other than that, the rom is fine.

    PLEASE FOR GOD'S SAKE...DON'T QUOTE OP....



    ########################ABOUT###############################

    i'm not gonna give you a tutorial about why to use ics ..blah blah blah...
    just understand that it uses less ram,less cpu and is more stable than stock jb by sony...
    and this is a first custom ROM on ics..so try it..;)

    FREE RAM AT STARTUP 290-310MB

    FRE RAM ON NORMAL USE 230-2600MB

    FREE RAM ON HEAVY USAGE 180-200MB

    CHECK SCREENSHOTS IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE

    and btw there are no scripts added...so maybe you can try out a few scripts and get the most out of it..


    this is a stock official ice cream sandwich(4.0.4) based rom
    the base firmware version is 11.1.A.0.68 by sony..

    so you might have a question in mind....
    how am i gonna flash ics???????
    till now there was no recovery kernel for ics

    not now....
    we have the stock kernel of ics with clockworkmod recovery added to it...
    all credits goes to my friend @hsr0....
    buddy....you are simply awesome....

    thank you @Ryshic12 for the concept
    this rom is a brother of my NoZ rom ,in installation and handling...
    Xboost too ,just like NoZ Rom has been divided into two zips..

    the base rom..and the aroma installer...
    ****************************************************************************************************************


    ***EXTRA MODS TO THE BASE ROM***


    >STOCK ICS BASED

    >PRE ROOTED.

    >BUSYBOX

    >DEODEXED..

    >CLEANED..

    >ZIPALIGNED.

    >KERNEL..the most important part..the base rom contains the kernel .
    as said..for the first time,ics based recovery for Xperia E series...

    >SLIM..

    >CUSTOM BOOTANIMATION...
    the sony make belive bootanimation followed by xperia Z ultra bootanimation..............

    >CUSTOM FONT....


    >CHAINFIRE 3D.....


    *********************************************************************************************************************
    ******mods to second zip********

    THIS IS A COMPLETELY TOUCH BASED AROMA INSTALLER......
    the aroma installer guides you to through the process of installing system and non-system apps..


    > 4 LAUNCHERS>>>>

    //recommended to use stock launcher as it is super smooth unlike stock and uses less ram..

    > 3 MUSIC PLAYERS>>>>

    > 3 GALLERY APPS>>>

    > 2 VIDEO PLAYERS>>

    > 2 SOUND ENGINES>>

    //use the sony soundenhancement if u use walkman...otherwise use viper,,

    > 2 CAMERA UI>>

    //don't use panorama if u select cybershot..

    >PLAY STORE>>>
    the play store cannot be installed into this rom by just downloading the apk ..
    so use aroma installer to add the three files in the play store section...to get a working play store..

    >MISC MODS>>

    1)init.d support installer...
    this apps does nothing to kernel,but enables init.d support to run scripts at bootup..

    2)android 4.2 keyboard..

    3)xda app..

    4)some system apps are in the "stock" section..including calculator,chrome,connected devices,
    e mail,...and blah blah blah..see it for yourself..

    5)things that i forgot...#########
