DISCLAIMER - IF YOU GET EATEN BY A SHARK AFTER FLASHING MY ROM IT'S NOT MY FAULT. BUT IF YOUR PHONE GOES CRAZY AND ATTACKS YOU AFTER INSTALLING MY ROM THAT'S ALSO NOT MY FAULT. IF HOWEVER, YOUR PHONE BECOMES A USELESS PAPERWEIGHT AFTER INSTALLING MY ROM, THEN YES YOU'VE GUESSED IT... NOT MY FAULT!

Not sure if anyone is interested but I have created a VERY lightweight version of JB 6.2.A.0.400 for Xperia GO. I basically took the original Sony ftf file and extracted the system elements. I then removed ALL of the bloatware (and I mean ALL, plus a few apps I probably shouldn't like chrome, gmail, google talk etc etc) and added ROOT (superuser).

Introducing SlimBean v1.3+

Included features/apps:
  • Stock-based
  • Pre-rooted
  • Totally de-bloated (probably too much for some people)
  • SD remount fix implemented
  • Pwng3's Phantom kernel (v1.8 power saver)
  • JDWalker's 'tweaked' build.prop file (v1.8 for XGO)
  • Ad-free hosts file
  • Custom charging animation
  • ESFileExplorer, Antutu benchmark & No-frills CPU control

PLEASE NOTE- Bravia 2 engine and 'Whitemagic' brightness are NOT incLuded. I see them as unnecessary and add little value. If you want to add them yourselves then follow instructions in relevant posts in the forum.

This is a very smooth, battery-friendly system...

I am currently using this with no-frills CPU set to 800mhz max, 200mhz min, interactive governor and CFQ scheduler.

THIS IS THE EXACT FIRMWARE I AM RUNNING ON MY PHONE (XPERIA GO ST27i) WITH UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER. I CANNOT SAY IF THIS WILL WORK ON PHONES WITH LOCKED BOOTLOADERS

Prerequisites:
Sony Xperia GO (ST27i)
CWM recovery or similar for flashing of zip file
Unlocked bootloader

Instructions to flash:

Copy zip file to SD card
Reboot to recovery
Wipe data/factory reset
Wipe cache
Format cache, data, system
Wipe dalvik cache
Flash zip file
Once "Flashed Successfully" appears on your screen the update is complete.

I would advise you hard reset your phone (vol up + power button) until you feel 3 vibrations.
From here I would then flash Pwng3's phantom kernel using fastboot (fastboot.exe flash boot kernel.elf)

Initial 2 boots following the flash may seem to take a while but subsequent boots are fine after that.


Credits:
JDWalker for his superb build.prop tweaks/file
Pwng3 for the excellent phantom kernel
Sony for original files


I am not pretending to be a guru when it comes to roms. Nor am I trying to rip anyone off with this. I simply wanted a stock-based firmware with everything that I never use removed, build.prop tweaks implemented, ad-free and root added. This is the result of that and I thought I would make it available to anyone who wants to try it

I was planning on trying that today. I'll post back tomorrow if I manage to get anywhere.

The reason I chose no-frills CPU control over anything else is because I found that the JB system always seems to set the cpu max frequency back to stock after a few hours of use (this is also the case in Pandemic's cpusettings). However, in no-frills>settings you can tick the box to 'prevent changes from other apps' and this stops the problem

Hi is JDwalkers tweak already applied, or do I have to apply it myself?
I also experience slow downs when I use interactive/sio combo, is there something I did wrong?
Very light ROM btw.

built-in fix remount sd
Can you add a built-in fix remount sd on your rom? Most of us are using this option and if we'll need to change it after flashing rom we are losing sound config that located on sd...
Link for the fix remount sd file is: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?fd4f2eq979q979a

The tweaks are already applied mate. You can check if you like by opening the following file in the zip file - system>build.prop (open it with notepad++) and you will see a whole bunch of additions under "##mods## which JDWALKER created.

Yeah I could add that no problem at all. My biggest problem living here in Asia (Philippines) is internet bandwidth. I'll add that fix and try to upload a new file to dev-host

Thank you!!! and yes I know your internet bandwidth in Philippines...
Just more request, can you also add the phantom 1.0.8 kernel (not 1.09 the one with built-in rooting) and tweaks to your flashing rom?
