########################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..

    • It doesn't work: Status 6; I have also tried to remove this line:
      PHP:
      run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
      and mount system manually, but it doesn't work. :(

      @Xmoose: why I get only 150mb of free ram on my normal use (with Greenify)? In your first post, you get 250mb of free ram.
