  1. Hello again developer! Your B3 rom is very good so far, i like it. Is fast and stable. Bravo.
    If is posible to add romanian language in this rom, that would be great.
    Thank’s and good luck.

  2. Hello Developer! I got a noob question. Is it possible to install this ROM on top of previous ones, in a non-destructive way? Or does installing a new ROM imply formatting the device?

  3. Purtroppo i blocchi persistono!!! succede che il telefono piano piano rallenta fino a piantarsi con il lampeggiare del monitor all’impazzata!!!


      • You download it directly from the phone (–> system settings –> about phone –> software updates)…but when I restart it give me an error!…I think the update must be installed in a new release of the ROM by the developer! 🙂

    • Ok great! But do you use B3 ROM or stock ROM??…because when I restart, the phone goes in CWM recovery and doesn’t find the upgrade….:-(

      • No, i has smartexperia A1. Look, turn off the phone, remove battery for a few seconds put it back. After that turn on bypressing vol up and power simultaneously. In recovery mod make a wipe factory reset and in mounts make a system format. Then reinstall the rom. By the way: you must have kernel A2 flashed first. Hope is helpfull.

  5. Can someone please explain me how to install update package 040HDG5?
    Is it possible? I have ROM B3. The system downloads the update, then the phone reboots but fails to install the upgrade. Is it a necessary upgrade?

      • Hi mitomanu, thanks for your reply. I think there is a misunderstanding: I already successfully installed this ROM, and I am very happy with it.
        Problem is that the system now tells me there is an update available, that is, package 040HDG5. As I said, my phone, running this B3 ROM (based on 040HDG3), fails to install the upgrade. I can happily ignore it, but I get notified of the upgrade all the time and it’s annoying!

      • Ettore, uncheck the notification in settings, about phone, software update, settings, check daily… hope is helpfull. Or if you want install the rom but clean.
