AnonD-44990, 08 Oct 2012hey buddy m on ics
pls tell mi the best rom for locked bl with all the installation instructi... moreHere.... I found the perfect rom for locked bootloader phones..... its the most popular out there,
Visit this link and look at the customizations (all 100% mods won't work as that would need a unlocked BL but its still a great rom).
And for your information .... YOUR WARRANTY IS SAFE with this (since no BL unlock necessary).
First you will have to root your phone and then install CWM. For that you need to flash the .431 version of ICS i.e http://www.mediafire.com/?a7iwc9jl04sv8ea
and then root and cwm install following doomlord's method. For those who don't know how go here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1409269
See the number 1 post which has the details of rooting and then scroll down a bit to Number 3 which had the details for cwm install.
Once all this is done download,
And put them in your SD card (remember the folder).
After that restart phone, go to cwm (continuously clicking volume down button) and do the following (same instructions are given on the rom page too. I highly recommend that you read everything in it. Some Q&A are there that will help you understand the rom better).
2.wipe cache partition
3.wipe dalvik cache
4.Format /system (in mounts and storage)
8.Install patch for your phone model (the second download link)
9.Reboot now and you are done !
Note: If in case your phone doesn't turn on. You can always flash back a Sony rom using flashtool to revive it. Remember.....the first boot up after rom installation takes time. Making a nandroid backup before rom installation is also recommended (its in cwm/backup and restore/backup. Make sure your SD card has around 1Gb free space as these backups take around 400-800mb space).
Any question? You know my facebook address......(facebook.com/sujan.baruah)

Prasanth K , 08 Oct 2012Please answer for following:
-Can you please provide me detailed information about rooting ... more1. I have written a detailed guide a few pages back. Follow it properly and you will end up with a jellybean rom (cyanogenmod 10).
2. Jellybean roms has same issues. Mostly because of no official camera drivers. If Sony releases JB then I believe that camera will be able to record at 30fps just like GB.
3. ICS is stable ....just video recording lags. No fixes till now.
4. Stay in GB if you want to keep your warranty. ICS is only good enough if you use a custom rom. Which in fact will cancel your warranty.
AnonD-10080, 24 Sep 2012I've finally flashed my phone with jelly bean ROM (CM10 FXP 138 Haida)developed by freeXperia ... morePlease answer for following:
-Can you please provide me detailed information about rooting the phone and installing Jelly Bean?
-I downgraded from ICS to GB as HD video recording is not smooth and also it takes 8 to 25 seconds to save an HD video. Does jelly Bean has the same issue?
-Xperia_Tipo_Dual has only 800 MHz CPU and it has Android OS, v4.0.3 by default. Is there any stable ICS version (No lags while recording HD video) for Neo V?
My phone still has 7 month warranty

I have used jelly bean rom for a while and enjoyed the smoothness of it but i had to downgrade to ICS 4.0.4 build number 4.1.b.0.587 as this build is good in performance compared to previous versions. dialer is faster than before, over all UI is smooth and above all battery backup is really marvelous. though gingerbread is best in performance but i love ICS UI and hence i am back on stock ICS ROM from Sony.
guys one more thing i would like to mention here android rocks in terms of UI compared to iOS. i got my brand new iPhone few days ago and i don't use it at all because of its boring UI but it's a fashion gadget to show off to friends and public.
AnonD-62707, 08 Oct 2012There you go... Thanx... that's the complete review one could ever find n just search instead ... moreYeah, UI (user interface) is necessary, we all agree, but UX (user experience) is more important. When I updated to ICS (and other early adopters) it was a case of being up to date and having some kind of bragging rights. Its like showing off in front of friends that I have got the lastest and greatest of android OS on my phone. Showing off the new notification bar, the new gallery, updated apps and cool looking UI with lovely transition effects etc. But after a few days you realise that instead of hearing 'Wow your phone is cool', you end up with 'Hey your phone lags' kinda comments, more often from your friends. We ourselfs don't realise that fact as we are blinded by our ego of having the lastest software and the 'presumed' theory that 'This is a new OS, it HAS to be good'. But one day or another you will realise the utter truth when you either use a GB running Neo V of your friend or a Windows Phone (in my case). Since that day I planned to get my phone a custom firmware with processor overclocking. Slowly I started testing one rom after the other. First, ICS based custom roms (Paranoid Android, one of the best in class hybrid roms) then slowing advancing to JellyBean cyanogenmod 10. The day I first touched JB on my phone, I somehow felt really relieved. Man!! Finally android has something to go up against the smoothnes of Windows Phone or iOS. Jellybean is by far the smoothest OS of android. Gpu acceleration of the UI contributed a lot to running every UI element at 60 fps. I remembered the days of GB when every app felt like they were 'meant' to be run on my phone. Impeccable smoothness combined with the cool UI of ICS, I knew for sure that Neo V is perfect for JellyBean. It would be a utter shame if Sony doesn't release a update of it. But still, jellybean is new and since its only been ported from Nexus devices to other phones and then slowly ending up on our phones (xda developers like FXP deserves huge thanks), it was still not very good for daily use. Occasional hang or lack of features like proper video recording, shaky app support etc makes its a bit hard to use the phone in its full potential. So I decided to downgrade for a certain time (till better roms are developed). But since I already got a taste of buttery smoothness in JB, I could no longer be back on ICS. So I am on a custom GB rom with 1.6ghz overclock, and everything is running perfectly. I feel complete, again.....
That's my story, now THIS is what one should call 'User opinion and review' as per gsmarena standards......hehe....:)

New product always has some issues,hence one shd wait, Ics hasn't been as stable as Gb.One wants stable, good battery backup, multi tasking.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2011nothing to say this phone missed any thing..Which smart phn shd i buy???
M sooooooo damn confused!!
I want mah phn to run smooth...lots of app ....cool look...i dnt wana get bored soon ..so may b smthng whc can kp me bsy with the intresting featureso_O
hey...while updating ur neo v to ics...ur phone will bcome slow...so..its better u keep it to gingerbread!! :)
AnonD-62707, 06 Oct 2012Thx @sbdevilmind @Raj as far as ICS goes ppl still say it isnt as smooth as ICS... lets wait... moreWhat I have experienced till now is that ICS isn't at all meant for multitasking. It has cool UI elements n all but they simply don't compensate for the utter slowness of response. But if one really want the good features.....then JellyBean is the way to go. Just yesterday I downgraded from jellybean to gingerbread. I am gonna stick with it until jellybean becomes more stable (its new and it not yet properly ported to Neo v, so its not a good day to day rom). But one thing is for certain.... Jellybean is what this phone deserves. Its way more faster, smoother and responsive compared to ICS. Although gingerbread is still the best thing for this phone, if you want stability, speed and good battery life (Jellybean is a big sucker of battery.....cause gpu is on all the time)....
AnonD-542, 06 Oct 2012No one knows an answer to that question. Even titanium backup doesn't backup offline maps data... moreThx @sbdevilmind
@Raj as far as ICS goes ppl still say it isnt as smooth as ICS... lets wait fr JB announcement few mnths more, then if not JB wil c ICS
