Full by what? I mean have u checked internal memory usage in storage? What's eating up your memory?

i have on my P the cyanogenmod 11, nice rom, but the battery with modest use is max 8 hours......
any possibility to found a battery with more capacity?:confused:

No... Its battery is of 1305 MAh and bdw CM11 eats up a little bit more battery... I recommend u to use CM12 to increase your phone's performance as well as battery noticeably... I am using it and it is awesome.... :good:

Guys..I really want to know how much battery life you guys getting..I am now getting only around 12 hours now.. ::(..which's the best ROM for battery life??

As far as the ROMs I have tried... I am impressed by CM12 for battery and performance....

I have my Xperia P from 2 or more years and currently running CM11 4.4.4 on it.... The device is great in terms of hardware but lacks barrery ... It suddenly drops 20 to 30% when rebooted and random reboots up to 4 in no. are common in everyday.... Apart from battery life it is a great piece... :D

I had the same problem so i bougth a battery from ebay and my problem is solved.
It gives a decent battery life since its just 1265mah, still i am impressed.
You can buy one and replace it.

Well you can try doing a clean install of the ROM and also try few more sim cards. :good:

I did that but still it shows " no sim card. emergency calls only." It works only with airtel simcard and can not detect any other card

Mmh, i had this problem long time ago with my old Sola and AOSP rom. This came from sim-card pin.
So, when i used my card without sim-password it worked, but with password not.

Hi guys, I finally decided to root my Xperia P because its' phone memory keeps loading full after I install apps and phone gets very slow. I wanna use some apps like syslink or link2sd.
So my problem is that, people says if i root my phone, it loses some features like Bravia Engine etc. Does it really happen? What do I lose? We also lose White Magic?
Can we continue using exclusive Sony apps?

Also can we restore these features like Bravia Engine?

If you just root, you won't lose any feature, if you unlock your bootloader, yes...

So if I just root, can I use those things like link2sd? I don't wanna change ROM right now.
I only want to remove some default apps and wanna link some uncarriable apps from phone memory to internal memory.
Thank you. I am really to new this, so sorry for questions :)

Some of those... But apps which are of kernel level requires custom kernel (eg. RAM expander, fast charge etc) as stock kernel doesn't support many of them...

    I don't know if it's the right place but... what future will have the cm11 development for xperia p?

    Percy can still continue developpement on an other site than XDA.

    XDA try to control everything and i think the whole mind of this site is dead now. Android Developpement is open to everyone because it's opensource. But on XDA, you can't post your work whenever you wan't because the people who are managing this site are doing what they wan't.

    If you continue like that, XDA, you will loose much people because you are stupid enough to accuse the best and only dev on Xperia P who can port new versions on CM. So thank you guy's, thank you to destroy your own comunity!

    I am still confuse with the white magic.
    It does provide twice brightness because has extra led inside it but does it use twice battery to power them?


    The white magic technology has been debated for a number of times on this forum !! i would like to make you and others understand how the white magic works and why shouldnt it be called a so called FLAWED Technology

    White Magic delivers a maximum brightness of 900 to 1000nits and it is twice as bright as iphone and three to four times as bright as samsung galaxies. It delivers you insane brightness levels, beyond good and evil.

    Sony could simply limit the brightness to some 50-60% of the current levels and give you an accurate color but worse sunlight readability, and would still be head and shoulders above most of the competition.
    Instead they chose to give their users even more brightness reserve for situations where they need it and suddenly it is a huge flaw. Go figure. It is like buying a 4WD and then complaining that ride offroad was not so smooth as on the highway

    Magic or not, technology has it's limitations. Traditional LCD's have color filters over each of their subpixels. Those filters let only something like 20-30% of the light through, the rest (over 70%) is just wasted. This is horribly inefficent even before we factor in the crystal matrix (another 50% waste on top), diffusor, polarizers, cover glass etc. This means a lot of the power in running the LED's is completely wasted !!

    What Sony did is to put a fourth subpixel without filter alongside of three others. Without filter it is 3 times more efficient as others and additionaly has better spectral purity. Every color is a mix of three primary colors. Like for example violet is 31% Red, 18% Green and 31% Blue. Or 18% white plus 13% red and 13% blue. So you could reduce background illumination and still get the same brightness.
    Of course it is not as simple as it sounds, because for solid colors (or colors with 0% of R, G or B) white pixel is useless. And if you have such pixels on the screen then you actually can't save anything unless you do a selective dimming of backlight illumination. Hence basically stated that the fourth pixel increases the efficiency by almost 3 times of the RGB display but the reduced consumption of battery would be around just 40 to 50%
    You still can cheat and add some white anyway, but the result will be a shift in colors and light bleeding. But our eyes are not perfect, so Sony can probably get away with it to the certain levels.

    You start to notice only when getting close to the limits, like those 75%, where colored pixels can't keep up anymore. Remember - they are three times darker as white ones. Sony could either stop there and refuse to mix even more white for additional brightness, or they can mix a bit more and give additional brithness at the cost of color accuracy. I glad they did, I can opt to limit the maximum brightness myself.
    Hope you find my post usefl and informative !!!:cowboy:

    @LoveForEver: Sadly, thats true. Whole story short, percy made a working build of 4.4.1 for Xperia L. Unluckly, he did that before guy named "uberlaggydarwin" who wanted to be super-uber-developer-device-mantainer (who even had written some post about that) for SXL. So with badly hurt ego, he went crying to admins in Development Committee. There he met a "brother-in-arms" jared - member of DC who had never ever developed anything (his "qualification" is having plenty of Samsung/LG devices).
    Percy was accused of blind development, making builds only for money, publishing builds that can brick users phones, etc. No surprise that under these circumstances percy decided to leave XDA.
